LeBron James, seemingly content with having half the NBA championships of Michael Jordan, has turned his focus from basketball to politics.
In a recorded segment last month, James told ESPN’s Cari Champion and basketball star Kevin Durant that President Trump doesn’t “give a f***” about Americans.
Champion asked about athletes talking about world events in the current political climate.
“The climate is hot,” James claimed. “The No. 1 job in America, the appointed person is someone who doesn’t understand the people. And really don’t give a f— about the people.”

“With the president of the United States, it’s at a bad time,” LeBron whined. “While we cannot change what comes out of that man’s mouth, we can continue to alert the people that watch us, that listen to us, ‘This is not the way.’”
James was apparently referring to the ‘s***hole countries’ comment Trump made during immigration discussions with lawmakers.
We’re not sure how James can cry foul over what “comes out of that man’s mouth” when he’s dropping F-bombs in a classless manner.
Champion egged James on, saying Trump’s comments were “scary” and people shouldn’t be “numb to his racist comments.”
Perhaps someone should brief her on how Jemele Hill’s career has been going since she called the President and his supporters racist.
LeBron James tears into Trump: "The No. 1 job in America, the appointed person is someone who doesn't understand the people. And really don't give a f*ck about the people … It's not even a surprise he says something. It's like laughable. It's laughable and scary."#GunReformNow pic.twitter.com/frMh68Yez9

Is it any wonder ESPN is laying off people at record rates when they promote garbage like this?
This isn’t the first time James has spoken out against the President, but it’s certainly his most disgusting effort.
He appeared on a Sports Illustrated cover alongside other stars all allegedly united against Trump. In 2017, he called the President a “bum” for rescinding an invitation to Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry. And he supposedly took a shot at him by wearing “equality” sneakers during a game in Washington.
Oh, I don’t know, Prince James, we think the people currently receiving thousands in bonus money from their employers due to Republican tax cuts, and those in the African-American community experiencing record low unemployment rates, might disagree that President Trump doesn’t ‘give a f***.’
