Donald Trump Dissed Lebron James And People Are Not Happy

Basketball legend Michael Jordan threw his support behind LeBron James on Saturday after President Donald Trump wrote a tweet bashing the Los Angeles Lakers icon. "He is doing an fantastic job for his community".

In the interview, James made a reference to football player Colin Kaepernick, whose kneeling protests launched an NFL movement, and fellow National Basketball Association star Stephen Curry, who a year ago said he would not visit the White House after the Golden State Warriors won the championship, prompting the President to disinvite him.

At the end of the interview, Lemon challenged Trump, a move that perhaps invoked the Trump tweet.

On Friday, Trump tweeted about James and Lemon, who has also been critical of him in the past.

James himself steered clear of the matter on social media on Saturday, tweeting only a picture of students at his new school with the message: "Let's get it kids!" She noted that the first lady's platform, centered around the "Be Best" initiative, includes "visiting organizations, hospitals and schools".

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders did not return a request for comment, nor did James' agency Klutch Sports Group.

It seems Trump's late-night tweet has led to another disagreement between the President and his wife.

Another said: "So Trump finally went at LeBron, huh?"

LeBron James during the opening ceremonies of the I Promise School on July 30, 2018 in Akron, Ohio.

LeBron was on CNN this week, unveiling plans for the I Promise School in his hometown of Akron - which has open its doors to 3rd and 4th graders, and set to expand to 1st - 8th graders by 2022. The CNN anchor asked rhetorically, "Who's the real dummy?" James, so far, has not responded.

Trump is traveling to OH on Saturday for a campaign rally.

It looks like President Donald Trump, 72, is ready for another celebrity Twitter feud!

Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a Trump critic who ran against the businessman for the 2016 Republican nomination, entered the fray, tweeting, "Rather than criticizing @KingJames, we should be celebrating him for his charity work and efforts to help kids".

It's not the first time Melania has broken ranks with her husband.

And of course, no cycle of Trump shade is complete without Pete Souza, the former White House photographer for President Barack Obama, weighing in with a deep cut from his archives.
