LeBron James Just Torched Trump Over His Attacks On Black NFL Players

 

Basketball megastar LeBron James addressed the President’s inflammatory attacks on black athletes who kneel during the national anthem during the NBA’s Media Day, praising former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick for taking a stand against racism and police brutality.

“I salute Colin Kaepernick for being as powerful as he was, and being the one that had to fall on the sword unfortunately, and I hate that … I wish I owned an NFL team right now, I’d sign him today.”

He didn’t shy away from addressing the President again, just two days after calling him a “bum” in a viral Twitter post:

“It wasn’t a name call … it was like ‘You bum!’ Me and my friends call each other that all the time. I’m not his friend though.

The thing that frustrated me and pissed me off is that he used the sports platform to divide us. Sport and sports is so amazing, what sports can do for everyone, no matter the shape, or size, or race, or ethnicity, or religion — or whatever. People find teams, people find payers, people find colors because of sport and they just gravitate toward that and it makes people so happy. And it brings people together like none other.

But James saved his most powerful condemnation for last, calling out the President for failing to rise to the responsibilities of the office and for failing to adequately govern this nation.

“He doesn’t understand the power that he has for being the leader of this beautiful country. He doesn’t understand how many kids, no matter the race, look up to the President of the United States for guidance, for leadership, for words of encouragement.

The people run this country, not one individual — and damn sure not him.”

We couldn’t agree more.

LaVar Ball Says ZO2’s Will Help Trump Calm Down

LaVar Ball is finally showing his hand — not that it wasn’t obvious — his endgame with Donald Trump is to line his pockets with profits for his Big Baller Brand.

We got LaVar Friday at the New York Grill in Ontario, CA, and he’s reveling over his feud with Trump. LaVar was with sons Lonzo, LiAngelo and LaMelo.

It isn’t lost on him that he got the equivalent of $13 million in free advertising when he earned Trump’s wrath by saying the Prez didn’t really assist in getting LiAngelo out of Chinese custody.

LaVar thinks Trump needs a pair of ZO2’s for his sanity … and we’re sure LaVar would be more than happy to send him a pair.

‘I Should Have Left Them In Jail’ (Trump’s Juicy TWEET)

‘I Should Have Left Them In Jail’ (TWEET)

 

President Donald Trump has regularly shown that he will lash out against people he feels do not show him the proper respect. Go ahead and add three players of the UCLA Men’s Basketball program to that list, all thanks to LaVar Ball, who is the father of one of those players, as well as our President’s tiny ego.

The three basketball players were arrested in China for shoplifting sunglasses. One of the players, LiAngelo Ball, is part of a high profile basketball family. His father, LaVar, had some controversial words concerning the President’s role in bringing his son home.

Appearing on ESPN Friday, LaVar was asked about the President’s role in keeping his son out of jail. LaVar responded in his typical braggadocio:

What was he over there for? Don’t tell me nothing. Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out.”

In reality, the three athletes never actually went to jail. Trump spoke with the Chinese President Xi Jinping after hearing of their predicament, and they were allowed to return to the United States. They have since been suspended by the UCLA athletic program.

However, LaVar’s comments to ESPN appeared to strike a raw nerve with President Trump. He posted the following to Twitter, again making use of his newfound 280 character limit:

His tweet reads:

Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal. I should have left them in jail!”

Just… unpack that.

The President of the United States is picking a fight with three college students, all because the father of one of those students brushed off the President’s role in keeping his son out of a Chinese jail for shoplifting sunglasses.

Meanwhile, the former President of the United States was apparently born in Kenya and is a secret Muslim spy. His handpicked predecessor is the leader of a tightly knit criminal conspiracy (and a WOMAN!). She also apparently raped children in the basement of a pizza parlor.

Donald Trump Blasts LaVar Ball: I Should Have Left LiAngelo in Jail!

Donald Trump has a new enemy — LaVar Ball.

POTUS is lashing back at the outspoken basketball dad after LaVar dissed Trump during an ESPN interview a few days ago. LaVar cast doubt on Trump’s role in freeing his son from China after LiAngelo and 2 UCLA basketball teammates shoplifted.

Trump took to Twitter Sunday morning and said … “Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal. I should have left them in jail!”

So far no word back from LaVar — but we’re sure it’s only a matter of time.

As for LiAngelo and his 2 teammates … all 3 thanked President Trump after returning to the United States last week.
