Fans Turn on Jordan After Trump’s “I Like Mike” Tweet And Calls LeBron Dumb

Published

We’re going to start with a question.  Do you care what the President tweets?

If you don’t, then you obviously are not a pro ball player.  Many of them were triggered by one of President Trump’s weekend tweets.

The story actually started Friday night when Trump bashed LeBron  and CNN’s Don Lemon after watching a re-airing of an interview the two did earlier in the week.

James talked about his new “I Promise” school in Ohio and his desire to help his hometown.  Eventually, the talk turned to politics and King James accused Trump of using athletes and headlines like the NFL #takeaknee protest to divide the country. James said,  “I can’t sit back and say nothing…He’s trying to divide our sport, but at the end of the day, sport is the reason why we all come together.”  Lemon asked James what would he say to the President if he were sitting right across from him, his answer, “I would never sit across from him…I’d sit across from Barack, though.” OOOHHHHH, that last part was fighting words and Trump came out swinging…rather tweeting.


If LeBron’s burn didn’t roast Trump, the backfire from that tweet certainly did.  Trump supporters and LeBron supporters alike posted it’s time for the president to stop with the name calling and thin-skinned knee jerk responses every time he’s criticized.

Those were softballs compared to how some of the pro athletes came in with hard hitting responses.


Even First Lady Melania via a spokesperson came out with a statement supporting LeBron saying, “It looks like LeBron James is working to do good things on behalf of our next generation…she would be open to visiting the I Promise School in Akron.”

The best responses clearly came the subjects of the attacks.  LeBron adopted former First Lady Michelle Obama’s play and went high when Trump went low.


But newsman Lemon went in for the low blow…


And the ‘definitely not MVP award’ response goes to  Michael Jordan who obviously played politics and tried to be diplomatic saying, “I support LJ. He’s doing an amazing job for his community.”
But MJ’s attempt not to ruffle any feathers, ruffled a few on fans who called him out on his constant neutrality.

This was exactly LeBron’s point.  Trump’s toxic tweet addiction is making everyone sick.  Even when people try to stay out of the fray like Jordan did by not saying anything bad about anybody, he gets dragged.

Others saw this as Trump continuing tirade against Blacks and proof that he’s racist…

I heard an interesting interview with a historian who said that democracy dies when people are weary.  People are definitely weary of Trump’s daily attacks on Blacks, athletes, immigrant children, Muslims, the FBI, the intelligence agencies and everybody.  But are we sick of being tired yet.

We started with a question so let’s end with questions….Does the President’s tweets matter to you?  Does his opinion of another human being affect your life in anyway?  If we’re all so tired of the twitter tantrums, why don’t we just ignore them instead of being triggered by them?

    Trump’s an ass and the GOP need to be voted out of office in November. I’m not weary at all, I’m fired up and prepared to get as many people as possible to vote against this bigoted
    administration.

    Lebron James is married to a black woman and has a black agent. Michael Jordan divorced his black wife and married a white woman.

      Ditto. Michael Jordan divorced his black wife to marry a white woman and have half-white kids just like he wanted. In my books that’s called an Uncle Tom and buck dancing all the way to the bank with black people’s money from his shoes and merchandise.

    The former basketball player whose nickname is “Air” did nothing for us. We spent billions buying his shoes that are made by sweatshop slaves. We spent millions watching his stupid movie Space Jam. We supported Air and Air turned his back on us and supported the same rich white people who imprison us and kill us. What is even worse is that the rich white people that Air kissed up to financially screwed him. The owner of the Chicago Bulls, Jerry Reinsdorf screwed Air out of millions of dollars. The owner of Nike literally owns Air’s last name. Black children should not try to be like Mike, they should try to be like Lebron.
