LeBron James: Leftists New Poster Child for Victimhood
Since when does a guy like LeBron James need protection?
After all, he’s an almost billionaire athlete who has Warren Buffet on speed-dial.
Oh wait, James is black. Thus, by Leftist definition, no matter how accomplished LeBron James is, he is stupid.
Which leads me to the latest Leftist ploy to keep Americans from noticing all the good things President Trump has done. Because according to The Guardian, Donald Trump has pushed the nuclear button.
The First Lady seemed to defy her husband when she said she would be open to visiting the NBA superstar LeBron James’s new public school. This information came the day after her husband questioned LeBron’s intelligence.
The Left decided to make a big deal about Trump’s comments about James on Friday night hours after CNN re-aired an interview with James and CNN anchor Don Lemon.
“Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon,” Trump said. “He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do.”
The Left and RINOs couldn’t wait to jump Trump. A cadre of professional whiners, for example pro athletes, RINOs, like John Kasich.
The next day, Melania Trump did what a good wife would do in such a circumstance. She delicately disagreed with her husband, and provided cover of sorts.
“It looks like LeBron James is working to do good things on behalf of our next generation and just as she always has, the First Lady encourages everyone to have an open dialogue about issues facing children today,” a statement provided by her spokeswoman said. “As you know, Mrs. Trump has traveled the country and world talking to children about their well-being, healthy living, and the importance of responsible online behavior with her Be Best initiative. Her platform centers around visiting organizations, hospitals and schools, and she would be open to visiting the I Promise School in Akron.”
Note that her statement didn’t mention the president.
Some say that the president shouldn’t get into the minutiae of sparring with James. I disagree. Without such confrontations, people like James set the narrative. Keep in mind that James is one of the social justice warriors who spreads his Leftist filth everywhere he goes. And now he’s into the education system?
You can bet that if James is in it, it’s all about profit. His schools can’t help black children if the social justice agenda is pervasive. And you know that it is.
