(SL) – Donald Trump’s latest target on Twitter is LeBron James. After the basketball superstar’s recent interview with CNN anchor Don Lemon,Trump tweeted late Friday night that James was interviewed ”by the dumbest man on television,” but that he ”made Lebron look smart,which isn’t easy to do.” The president also tweeted “I like Mike!” – suggesting that he sides with Michael Jordan in the argument over whether he or James is the greatest NBA player ever.
Among the athletes who have jumped to defend James is Jordan himself, telling The Associated Press ”I support LeBron James.He’s doing an amazing job for his community.” LeBron also received support from an unlikely defender…Trump’s wife Melania. She praised LeBron for what he’s doing and even offered to visit his new ‘I Promise’ school. Some of Trump’s supporters even lashed out at 45 saying this was a new low. Trump stayed away from the subject while he was campaigning in Ohio.
