CNN’s Don Lemon Strikes Back: Trump "Traffics In Racism", "Fueled By Bullying"

08 August 2018

The statement came after President Donald Trump on Twitter called black CNN host Don Lemon the "dumbest man on television" who made James "look smart, which isn't easy to do" during a CNN interview.

Sen. Menendez directly addressed that comment with his first tweet on Monday night. Even Michael Jordan - who the world assumed Trump was referencing - praised LeBron for his character and charity work.

She said Mrs Trump wanted "to have an open dialogue about issues facing children".

Back in February, LeBron James gave an interview to ESPN's Cari Champion in which he discussed race, politics, being a public figure and his personal criticisms of President Trump.

Jobs report misses as unemployment rate slides near 18-year low
More hours has helped lift average weekly earnings for retail workers in the past year more quickly than for workers overall. One cloud on the horizon has been the Trump administration's trade fights with China, the European Union, Canada and Mexico.

Whatever the reception, it seems obvious that the I PROMISE school is part of a statement from LeBron James that he will not just "shut up and dribble" anytime soon.

The Commander-in-chief was referring to an interview in which the National Basketball Association legend opened up to Lemon about how he felt Trump had used sport to exacerbate USA racial tensions.

That was the silver lining for Lemon, who pointed out, "The overwhelmingly negative response though to his unfair and unkind attack on a good man, LeBron James, shows that American rejects what he is peddling".

The Los Angeles Lakers were able to make a huge splash in free agency this offseason when they signed LeBron James to a four-year deal. Is he revealing who we really are?

McGregor v Nurmagomedov - the key questions
These two have a heated rivalry, and that feud will be settled on November 3, 2018, at Madison Square Garden in New York City. For the record, GSP is leaning towards the undefeated Dagestani to keep his pristine record intact against McGregor.

Nevertheless, her comments were the subject the following month of a "Saturday Night Live" opening monologue by Charles Barkley, who noted that "this country has a great tradition of athletes speaking their minds" and told James to "keep on dribbling and don't ever shut up".

The tweet was quickly condemned, or at least heavily shaded, in most corners of the internet.

On Monday, Rodgers had a video released that, among other things, applauded the efforts of several National Football League players and what they were doing in their community. James' publicist declined to respond to Trump's tweet, but early Saturday afternoon, James retweeted a post from the "I Promise" school and said: "Let's get it kids!" James had said worse about the president.

Many also drew a comparison between James' new school for at-risk children and the defunct Trump University, a for-profit educational institution, which was shut down following multiple lawsuits. "I support you but this is unacceptable, you need to apologize immediately, ' wrote Wesley Cantrell". Trump lashed out on Twitter at both men, insulting their intelligence.
