Ahead of campaigning in Ohio on Saturday, President Donald Trump unleashed a withering attack on the state’s favorite son, savaging LeBron James in a late-night tweet that derided the intelligence of one of the nation’s most prominent African-American men.
Trump blasted James after seemingly watching an interview the NBA superstar did earlier in the week with CNN anchor Don Lemon in which he deemed Trump divisive. Although James has long been a Trump critic, calling the president “U bum” in a 2017 tweet, the Friday night tweet was Trump’s first attack on the player, who just opened up a school for underprivileged children in his hometown of Akron….

Oh boy. After President Trump insulted LeBron James, Melania Trump issues a statement saying she’s open to visiting the school he just opened in Ohio.

The Trump melodrama is beginning to resemble a Shakespearean tragedy like King Lear, Julius Caesar or Richard II, where the protagonist gradually loses all his closest relatives, friends and allies.
Just this week, he was contradicted by Ivanka Trump, Melania Trump and John Bolton.
And I doubt he was doing any favours to the Republican candidate in this week’s special election in Ohio by going out of his way to disrespect LBJ.
GOPer lemmings following him off a cliff?
Nice Reference DSD
Nobody wants LeBron to invite her…
But what the heck?
She should get the invite
Give LeBron PROPS for his effort
Then we can see if her husband’s can handle this whole thing?
I am really getting tired of Trump describing black individuals of having low intelligence. He has now done this with several people, and they always seem to be black. Bottom line is LeBron has built a successful business and is far more intelligent than Trump – who has relied on fraudulent practices such as Trump University to make money.
And conservatives such ask themselves at what point is someone racist? When they discriminate against blacks in the workplace? when they claim Obama is not an American, but a Kenyan? When they continually suggest individual black people have low intelligence? And this, by the way, is a Republican thing, not just a Trump thing.
Yes indeed Z….
As Trump seeks to erase any and all things gained by America’s First Black/Mixed race President….
And upfront seeks to eliminate Brown people from the country….
It IS 2018….
Lucky his efforts will NOT succeed…
I remember in the 90s conservatives were railing against “Ebonics” often using black conservatives like Thomas Sowell or Alan Keyes to innoculate themselves against charges of racism. Of course these same conservatives never complained about the slang used by poorly educated white Americans.
Zreebs is right. Republ8cans have set a higher bar for African Americans to be considered intelligent or educated for years before Trump came along. He has simply ramped it up and does so without shame.
True That Scott
There is little from Trump’s mouth that is orignal
He now is the carrier for the worst of the Right
It’s been a Republican thing for over 50 years now.
I also see that Joe Arpaio has said that he would give Trump a hand job. He’ll win that primary for sure now.
What is wrong with these people??
I thought Arapio told Cohen he’d let Trump blow him?
Let me review the tape Scott. But does it matter though?
No, though I imagine the Trump supporters who really like his “pussy grabbing” ways would not be as amenable to him pleasuring another man orally as they would another guy giving him a handie.
I don’t most of the guys supporters ‘like’ his escapades ….
I think Jack’s point is correct…
They don’t care…
He’s doing exactly what they wanted him to do….
Fuck things up…
They KNOW he lies and is is off the wall
They KNOW that those in Congress will only let him go so far
They even know that Mueller will hold his feet to the fire in the end
It doesn’t matter
He’s THEIR GUY
Democratic leaders are afraid on this for the reason that Bill Clinton actually got STRONGER after impeachment …..
The thing is to get Mueller and Trump to TOGETHER cut the poltical rug out from under him so he’d be forced to quit…
Democratic Socialist Dave says
The Dixiecrats (sometimes indulged but eventually resisted by every Democratic president after Woodrow Wilson: FDR, HST, JFK, LBJ and even Carter) have taken over the G.O.P.
Trump has enabled a resurgence of some of the crazies who probably had been chaffing at the bit from 2008 to 2016?
I see the fake news is strong on this site.
We talk about TRUE Trump stuff here all the time trumpfan…
