LeBron James Tweets Positive Message To Kids After Donald Trump Attacks Him

0

LeBron James’ first tweet after President Donald Trump attacked him is  amazing, without a mention of Trump.

Trump insulted the intelligence of both the NBA superstar and CNN host Don Lemon in a Friday night tweet, writing “Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do.” The president added, “I like Mike!” presumably referencing retired NBA legend Michael Jordan.

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!

James’ tweet is especially relevant because the CNN interview Trump was referencing when he disparaged James and Lemon was specifically about LeBron’s new school. The I Promise School opened its doors Monday in Akron, Ohio ― LeBron’s hometown ― and has won praise from advocates for public education like Diane Ravitch.

Last year, James tweeted directly at Trump after the president tweeted that he was withdrawing the White House invitation to the Golden State Warriors because Stephen Curry was “hesitating” about going.

 

“U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain’t going!” James tweeted at the time. “So therefore ain’t no invite. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!”

 

It’s unclear whether James intended his Saturday tweet to be a response to Trump. But either way, it suggests he’s more focused on sharing support for the students than dealing with Twitter fights.
