Trump questioned the intelligence of Lemon and James because he was upset the NBA great said, during an interview on CNN, that he is dividing the country using sports with his attacks on black NFL players taking a knee to protest racism and police brutality. James also said he would not sit across the table from Trump.
Trump tweeted (four days after the interview aired): “LeBron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!”

Trump’s racist attack is a throwback to Laura Ingraham’s “shut up and dribble” comment. We saw how that played out….it backfired on her.
Michael Jordan responded through a spokesperson saying, “I stand with LJ. He’s doing an amazing job for his community.”
