It was all but certain that we would see a response from President Trump following a CNN interview hosted by Don Lemon that featured Lebron James, especially in relation to James’ and his comments directed at The President.
It began when the two sat down 4 days ago. James had been pretty vocal about his feeling in regards to the President. So vocal at one point during the interview, Lemon was prompted to ask James if he would ever challenge President Trump? James at first said No, but when pressed by Lemon he didn’t rule it out.
It took roughly 4 days, but when Trump weighed in; lets just say he wasn’t shy about his feelings.
The President bashed James and said Lemon’s interview made the new Los Angeles Lakers star “look smart.” The president also alluded to preferring Michael Jordan over James, Something I probably think most of us agree on as well.
“Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon,” Trump tweeted. “He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!”

Can you say, BEST TWEET EVER?
His last little jab “I Like Mike!” is a clear shot at anyone who thinks that LeBron James is the greatest basketball player of all time. Trump is referring to Michael Jordan as the greatest, which we wholeheartedly agree with.
Last week, James sat down with the Fake News Host Don Lemon and he claimed that Trump was “using sports” to divide the country.
“Sports has never been something that divides people. It’s always been something that brings someone together,” he said.
Watch his bizarre comments below:

Lebron’s criticism of President Trump is nothing new, however it seems like it has been turned up a notch since President Trump rescinded a White House invitation to the Golden State Warriors this past season.
James chimed in after the decision was made and called the President a ‘bum.”
Do you agree with Trump’s classification of Lemon and Lebron? Will they respond or just accept being #Trumped.. Let us know your thoughts below.
