Trump's Tweet About LeBron Is Not Unfair

  • Lebron James and Donald Trump

Lemon responded to Trump's tweet this morning with a nod to First Lady Melania Trump's campaign against bullying.

Donald Trump's tweet calling LeBron James and Don Lemon dumb and dumber did not go over well in the sports and political world, eliciting strong reactions on social media.

In the interview, which took place after James announced he was creating an elementary school to support at-risk children in his hometown of Akron, Ohio, the Lakers star also accused the president of trying to use sport to divide America. The idea struck particularly hurtful for James, who explained sports was a means for him to learn about others.

Geraldo Rivera, the journalist and Trump confidant, broke with the president to say he wished Trump "turned other cheek re @KingJames & @donlemon While I disagree with their conclusion that @POTUS is using sports to divide America along racial lines, they're both honest & intelligent men".

CNN, which Trump has repeatedly said is a purveyor of "fake news", then mocked the president and first lady about their television viewing habits and even slighted Melania's #BeBest platform. "I like Mike!", his tweet read.

"I support LJ", Jordan said in a statement. "[LeBron James]. He's doing an awesome job for his community".

So Alfa is then expected to take Stoffel Vandoorne, who has failed to fire this year at McLaren, alongside Marcus Ericsson. Instead, Ricciardo will partner with Nico Hülkenberg at Renault , a team that returned to F1 in 2016.

First lady Melania Trump stepped away from her husband's criticism of National Basketball Association star LeBron James to compliment his work on behalf of children and even offer to visit his school for at-risk children.

He has also consistently come for former President Barack Obama for nearly everything and Congresswoman Maxine Waters, whom he called low IQ person.

Donald Trump may have picked on the wrong athlete this time.

Donovan Mitchell of the Utah Jazz said Trump's tweet was "a sign of an insecure human being" and condemned the U.S. leader for "setting a bad example for our kids." . The CNN anchor asked rhetorically, "Who's the real dummy?"

This is not the first time Melania Trump has publicly expressed views or taken action that demonstrated an independent streak, CNN reported. It also tacked on the hashtag, "Be Best", to its tweet.

"Just as she always has", the statement continued, "the First Lady encourages everyone to have an open dialogue about issues facing children today".
