Celebrities and media figures are rushing to the defense of NBA superstar LeBron James after President Trump dunked on him in a Friday Twitter missive that rattled cages on the political left.
King James became the latest loudmouthed multimillionaire athlete to earn Trump’s ire after a CNN interview with Don Lemon where the wealthy member of the Los Angeles Lakers blamed him for using sports to divide America.
It was yet another distortion from the left and guys like James, Colin Kaepernick and a veritable all-star team of activist athletes who have used their fame to inject radical racial politics into what once was a unifying distraction in which Americans could simply enjoy the games to escape the daily grind. That all ended when the NFL allowed itself to be hijacked by social justice warriors and their disrespectful conduct during the national anthem.
Trump was quick to express his disgust with the kneelers and fist-thrusters and by doing so, he earned the hatred of ingrates who pull down obscene amounts of money to play a game as well as their enablers in media and politics.
By calling out LeBron as a big dummy, the POTUS was immediately accused of being a “racist” by the Dan Rather’s walking corpse and even the apolitical Michael Jordan expressed his support for James although it is notable that MJ didn’t trash Trump.
Now in a completely predictable development, embittered sore loser Hillary Clinton has rushed to the defense of James as another excuse to whine about the results of the 2016 election.
.@KingJames is a great family man, incredible ballplayer, gives back to his community, and isn’t afraid to speak his mind. He’s a world class athlete and a class act. We need more like him in this world.

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton offered her support to NBA star LeBron James on Saturday after President Trump attacked him on Twitter, calling James a “world class athlete and a class act.”
“[James] is a great family man, incredible ballplayer, gives back to his community, and isn’t afraid to speak his mind,” Clinton tweeted on Saturday.
“We need more like him in this world,” she added.
It’s important to recognize that Mrs. Clinton would take the side of Satan himself if it gave her a chance to take a cheap shot at the man who beat her fair and square but then there is also the fact that LeBron endorsed her for the presidency on the weekend before the 2016 election at a rally in Cleveland so she owes him one.
She also spent a part of that weekend that would prove to be critical to her political fate hanging out with foul-mouthed rapper Jay Z and cop-hating diva Beyoncé at another event in Ohio.
Had she only spend those last few days campaigning in Wisconsin then she may have very well ended up sitting on that Oval Office throne that she felt that she was entitled to but her grossly incompetent campaign mistakenly believed that the star power of King James would help to deliver her to the promised land.
Instead, all that she is left with is a soul full of hate that she seems to marinate in vodka and her Twitter account.
