Michael Jordan throws his support behind LeBron James after Trump jibe

Share

James's last message was about his newly completed I Promise School in Akron, a public and nonprofit partnership created to help underserved kids in his OH hometown. "He made Lebron (sic) look smart, which isn't easy to do".

On Monday, James sat down for an interview to promote a new public school that his charitable foundation helped build. To Trump, you either stand with him, or with Colin Kaepernick and any NFL "son of a bitch" - the President's words - who kneels during the national anthem. In his interview with Lemon, he said he'd consider running for president if he believed he was the only person who could stop Trump from being re-elected.

James explained why he called Trump a "bum" on his Twitter account.

This is presumably in retaliation to James' comments in a CNN interview with Don Lemon, during which he stated he would not sit across from Trump, but would sit across from former president Barack Obama.

"There's a lot of insults the president could have hurled at LeBron and Don Lemon, but it says something that the president openly questioned their intelligence".

Others have pointed out that Trump's tweet, by comparing James to "Mike" - that is, Michael Jordan - had racial overtones.

But the best laugh was reserved for the man who conducted the LeBron interview, suffering the worst of Trump's Twitter jab.

Trump blasted James after seemingly watching an interview the former Cleveland Cavaliers star did earlier in the week with CNN anchor Don Lemon in which he deemed Trump divisive.

He's dividing us, and what I've noticed over the last few months is that he's kind of used sport to kind of divide us.

James has been outspoken in his dislike for Trump in the past.
