Donald Trump blasts LeBron James, Don Lemon for viral interview
It has finally happened. Donald Trump has taken his talents once again to Twitter this time to bash two birds with one stone, taking a shot at both CNN news anchor Don Lemon and Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James.
Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!

After calling Lemon the “dumbest man on television,” Donald Trump zeroed in on LeBron James, even going as far as to belittle the intelligence of the four-time MVP. Perhaps Trump wasn’t aware of the fact that James is one of the smartest basketball players in the league, and while he did not reach college – by choice – the Lakers forward has opened his own educational institution, the I Promise School, which he inaugurated last Monday in Akron, Ohio.
Don Lemon was on hand during the opening of the said school, and took advantage of the moment to have a one-on-one interview with James. During the discussion with Lemon, James accused the POTUS of using sports as a tool to divide the country even further apart.
Before ending the conversation with Lemon, James punctuated by saying he “wouldn’t sit across” Trump but will be willing to “sit across from Barack [Obama].”
Trump also had his parting shot at LeBron in his tweet, by stating he “likes Mike,” which we assume is a reference to Michael Jordan, the six-time NBA champion James is frequently compared with.
