President Donald Trump took to his twitter to complain about NBA star Lebron James and CNN host Don Lemon.
In the tweet, posted late Friday, he calls Lemon the ‘dumbest ma on television” and implies that James is not as smart as Lemon portrayed him. He goes ahead to state that he prefers former NBA player Michael Jordan.

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!

The tweet follows the CNN feature in which James talks about the motivation of opening the I Promise school in his hometown. In the feature, James criticises Trump’s attempt to use sports as a divisive tool.
“Sports has never been something that divides people. It’s always been something that brings someone together,” he said.
This would not be the first time Trump has insulted any African American for standing up to him and his policies. He had been insulting NFL player Colin Kaepernick over his kneeling as a way to protest police brutality; he pretended to cancel the invitation for the Golden State Warriors team to the White House days after the team declined to visit the white house after their NBA win.
He has also consistently come for former President Barack Obama for almost everything and Congresswoman Maxine Waters, whom he called low IQ person.
