Leftist Accuses Trump of Being 'Borderline Racist'

Justin GreeneAug 08, 2018

The dispute between President Donald Trump and National Basketball Association star LeBron James got the Trevor Noah treatment on "The Daily Show" on Monday.

On Monday, Rodgers had a video released that, among other things, applauded the efforts of several National Football League players and what they were doing in their community.

As Trump critiques go, this was mild stuff. But the attack on James, who was being interviewed by another black man, to some resembled a racial dog whistle.

He has repeatedly said that anyone who kneels during the anthem should be fired. Is he revealing who we really are? "Most of America, anyway, not all of America".

"I know exactly what these 240 kids are going through", James said Monday in front of the new school. Every student receives free tuition, as well as free food, a uniform and even a free bike.

A more cynical interpretation of the events of recent days might be that Trump's relatives and officials, by adopting more mainstream positions on certain issues, are carrying out a political strategy that can complement the President's often wild interventions to please his base.

"Listen, I don't close the chapter on anything or close the book on anything", James said when asked if he would return to Cleveland to end his career.

Menendez has been a vocal opponent of the Trump administration's immigration policies.

"Who's the real dummy?"

Stephen Curry and LeBron James have met each other four straight times in the NBA Finals, and with LeBron coming to the West joining the Lakers that streak has come to an end. His opponent, Democrat Danny O'Connor, tweeted, "I don't have to tell (asterisk) anyone (asterisk) what LeBron James means to OH".

The White House has not responded to a request for comment on Lemon's speech.

Still, such is the belligerent dominance of Trump's personality, it's quite possible that he will simply drown out any political positioning of those around him.

"Sports has never been something that divides people. LeBron just pledged millions for a school for underprivileged kids". Michael Jordan put professional rivalry to the side on Saturday to support James. He called Lemon "the dumbest man on television", and James a close runner up.

So let me get this straight: Flint, MI has dirty water still, but you anxious about an interview about a man doing good for education and generations of kids in his hometown?

Trump appears to be on thin ice, not just with angry voters, but with his own family as well. But commenting on someone's intelligence, including his own, has always been a Trump trope.

"That I was racist because of the way that I challenged him", Lemon confirmed.
