Donald Trump picks the wrong black man to attack after calling LeBron James dumb in racist midnight tweet, saying CNN’s Don Lemon “made LeBron look smart.” This is a throwback to Laura Ingraham’s “shut up and dribble” comment. We saw how that played out….it backfired on her.
Trump tweeted: “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!”
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 on both Don Lemon and LeBron James came after the basketball great was interviewed following the opening of his school for underprivileged children in Arkon. James said that Trump was dividing the country using sports and that he would never sit across from him.
Now any rational leader would have said I don’t agree with LeBron’s comments but I respect his contributions both on and off the field. Nope. This idiot went full racist. He chose the wrong hill to die on.
By the way, guess which man was forced to pay millions to settle claims against his school because he defrauded students? It wasn’t LeBron James. It was the racist POS debasing the Oval Office.
No responsible media outlet should characterize this as a feud. This is a so-called sitting president pushing his white supremacist agenda by attacking two prominent black men by calling then dumb. This is unacceptable.
Watch Don Lemon’s full interview with LeBron James:
Reaction on Twitter:
Lebron James invested over $100 million to send students to a university.
Donald Trump had to pay $25 million for ripping off university students.
Lebron puts kids in school.
Trump puts them in cages.

LeBron is a successful businessman who is beloved all around the world. You’re a failed businessman who is despised all around the world. LeBron built an empire from nothing. You had to take “a small loan of a million dollars” from daddy. I see why you’re jealous. https://t.co/qcnrzjEoex

It should be beneath the dignity of a sitting POTUS to take racist shots at D. Lemon and Lebron James. While only uttering kind words for ruthless dictators, Putin, Kim and Duterte. President Trump, we cape up for ours , “BELIEVE THAT” #KinOrSkinWeRide

Let's settle this whole thing by comparing the two schools begun by LeBron James and the president*. Which one of them was a multimillion dollar fraud?

I miss having a president who didn’t belittle people on Twitter.

So says a man who repeatedly claimed that president Obama wasn’t born in the U.S.. A man who would not condemn the KKK/Nazi/Alt-Right in Charlottesville last summer. A man who referred to non-white countries a s—holes. A racist and dangerous man who must be REMOVED from office. https://t.co/fPjSrG58Ki

This is apparently what the President of the United States feels the need to share with the world at what should be long past his bedtime? It's a disgrace. It's racist. And it's the product of petty but dangerous hatreds. I repeat this is the PRESIDENT??!? https://t.co/MA8nZUxFc7

.@KingJames funded a public school to help at-risk youth in his hometown of Akron, Ohio.
You defrauded thousands that enrolled at Trump University. Your scam forced you to settle for $25 million. https://t.co/E1jgqt2JOr
