After Donald Trump called any NFL player protesting during the national anthem a "son of a b***h" who should get fired, LeBron James called 45 a "bum" in the tweet read around the world this past weekend. The three-time NBA champion followed that up by taking to Uninterrupted and further speaking about Trump's divisiveness.
Well, after a weekend which saw many more NFL players clap back at Trump by protesting during the anthem, King James felt inspired to address his tweet aimed at the president and more during the Cleveland Cavaliers' media day Monday. And he did so by referring to Trump as "that guy that continues to try to divide us as people."
Not only did LeBron stand by calling Trump a "bum," but he also had some choice words for those who voted for the celebrity-in-chief.
"If you voted for him or not, you may have made a mistake, and that's OK," James told reporters. "If you voted for him, it's OK. I mean, I've done things for my kids and realized I shouldn't have given my daughter that many damn Skittles. Maybe I shouldn't have done that. She won't go to sleep now."
Major salute to the King for speaking up about Trump in Cleveland, a city which hosted the 2016 Republican National Convention and whose state of Ohio voted for The Donald.
