Michael Jordan responds to President Trump's comments on LeBron James

CNN anchor Don Lemon revealed that President Donald Trump once accused him of being racist, after a contentious interview over Trump's conspiracy theory that former President Obama was born in Kenya.

Sen. Menendez directly addressed that comment with his first tweet on Monday night.

The title of the three-part series, Shut Up and Dribble, is a not-so-subtle reference to the words used by Fox News host Laura Ingraham in February, when she went on air to denounce the basketball star's criticism of President Donald Trump.

Meanwhile, Don Lemon, the presenter who had interviewed James, also got Melania Trump involved.

"I know the streets they walk".

During the interview, Lemon and James had criticized the president for trying to divide the nation.

"I support LeBron James", Jordan said in a statement to the Associated Press news agency on Saturday. "He made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do", Trump said. Just look at the I PROMISE school he opened in Akron last week for proof.

Trump touted Balderson's record on crime and immigration and claimed that O'Connor, if he won, would be a "puppet" of Nancy Pelosi, who stands to reclaim the title of speaker of the House if Democrats seize control of the body this fall.

Ohio Gov. Josh Kasich, a Republican who at times criticizes Trump, tweeted: "Rather than criticizing @KingJames, we should be celebrating him for his charity work and efforts to help kids". "He's doing an unbelievable job for his community", Jordan said in a statement to The Associated Press through his representative via text Saturday. "Love you guys." This weekend's controversy was just the latest in a long-running feud between James and the president.

That was the silver lining for Lemon, who pointed out, "The overwhelmingly negative response though to his unfair and unkind attack on a good man, LeBron James, shows that American rejects what he is peddling". James also drew solidarity from his fellow sports personalities. He shared his thoughts recently after the opening of his new I Promise School in Akron, which will be the new learning destination for 240 at-risk public school students. She called James "barely intelligible" and "ungrammatical" before also babbling, "It's always unwise to seek political advice from someone who gets paid $100 million a year to bounce a ball".

"And then once he became President of the United States, and you have to hold his feet to the fire, all of a sudden he doesn't like what I'm doing", Lemon said.
