  • Michael Jordan says 'I support' LeBron James after Trump attack

A brief synopsis from Showtime lays out how the controversy factors in, as well as a rough timeline of the path director Gotham Chopra will tread.

Menendez wrote in a tweet Monday that Trump wouldn't have questioned James' intelligence or charity work if he were white. "Unfortunately, a lot of kids - and some adults - take these ignorant comments seriously", Ingraham said then. "Millions elected Trump to be their coach". She added that there was "no racial intent" in her remarks, claiming that "false, defamatory charges of racism are a transparent attempt to immunize entertainment and sports elites from scrutiny and criticism". She said that James and Kevin Durant, among others, should "shut up and dribble", instead of sharing their political commentary. "We, the decent and truly patriotic people who really love America and believe in its greatness, have to, because clearly Donald Trump won't".

James has made no secret of his political opinions, calling Trump "a bum" a year ago and telling CNN's Don Lemon last week that he would "would never sit across" from the president, prompting Trump to insult James' intelligence. A White House official said on Sunday that Mrs. Trump was not deliberately picking sides but rather emphasising her priority to use her role to help children. "I'd sit across from Barack [Obama], though".

Navarro was responding to Trump's tweet in which he called CNN host Don Lemon "the dumbest man on television" and insinuated that National Basketball Association superstar LeBron James is unintelligent. He made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do.
