LeBron James praised by OH school district after Trump attack

During the segment, Lemon and LeBron discussed the opening of a new school in OH and the basketball legend passed on an opportunity to criticize the president.

"Donald Trump is the president of the United States, and he's going on Twitter [.] to attack a man like LeBron James and Don Lemon, who are examples of what makes America great, who are examples of Americans that give back", Navarro said.

"Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon", the tweet read.

"This president traffics in racism and is fueled by bullying", Lemon said on his primetime CNN show. He made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do.

There aren't many players who can relate to having to live in the same spotlight James' son has, but one guy who can is Shareef O'Neal, son of legendary National Basketball Association center Shaquille O'Neal. "I like Mike", the President wrote on August 4. The CNN host noted that Trump calls anthem-kneelers protesting racial injustice "sons of bitches", yet he referred to the white supremacists of Charlottesville as "very fine people".

As Lemon cycled through the outrage Trump's attacks caused over the weekend, he reminded viewers of the president's attacks on "low IQ" Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) along with his birtherism against former President Barack Obama. That's the life of LeBron James Junior.

"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 issued by Melania Trump's spokeswoman said.
