The Mainstream Media and left once again lost its mind this time over a Trump tweet directed at LeBron James and Don Lemon.
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!

This tweet was in response to an interview with Don Lemon in which he called Trump a bum.
What a bum @KingJames is. You support kneeling for our anthem. You support the Democratic Party Which has led the charge robbing Americans for years. Trump didn’t divide us your idiocy did https://t.co/FMU5kiGlhE

According to James, his home state of Ohio “made a mistake” voting for Trump because they were “uneducated.”
“No matter whether you voted for him or not, you may have made a mistake and that’s OK, if you voted for him. It’s OK. I’ve done things for my daughter and realized I shouldn’t have gave my daughter that many damn Skittles. Maybe I shouldn’t have done that,” he said.
Then he hit at his own fans in the state of Ohio for giving Trump the vote, echoing Hillary’s “basket of deplorables” comments.
“At the end of the day, I don’t think a lot of people was educated,” he said. “And I think that’s one of the biggest problems that we have. When it becomes vote time, people are just not educated on either the individual or what’s going on in the state of the world right now. … I don’t think a lot of people are educated and they make choices and say things that are uneducated.”
As Hillary learned, calling people stupid is not exactly the best recipe to win them over to your side. To LeBron, though, whether the states were “educated” or not matters little to him, because in the end, they all made the mistake of not voting for Hillary.
“And am I saying that the people of Ohio wasn’t educated?” he ponderd. “Am I saying that some of the other states that voted for him was uneducated? They could have been or they could not have been. But that doesn’t mean it was the right choice.”
