Donald Trump and LeBron James have a big history. They went from being pals to take shots at each other whenever they have the chance, primarily due to political issues.
It looked like this verbal war was over after Joe Biden beat Trump in the 2020 elections, but none of that has happened. In fact, former POTUS continues attacking LeBron, taking every chance he gets to diss the Los Angeles Lakers superstar.
During a two-hour speech in Phoenix, Arizona, Trump made some bizarre claims about LeBron, transgender people, and even NBA ratings this past postseason.
"If I were a coach, I wouldn't be talking to too many women as we know women," he said. "I'd be getting some of these people that ... they're 'women.'"
"Somebody said that if LeBron James ever decided to get the operation, how would he be on the court? How would he be?" he added.
"LeBron James, you can have him," Trump continued before further mocking the basketball player. "Did you see the basketball ratings that were terrible? They went up after his team was defeated."
These remarks are simply awful. As stated before, this is not the first time that we see Trump going off on LeBron. It's not like No. 23 recently talked about him or something, he just simply wanted to name Bron, and that's it.
The NBA ratings indeed went up this postseason, though, but saying that it was thanks to LeBron's elimination is just wrong, as it is attacking minorities.
Even if he doesn't have the same platform he has during his mandate, Mr. Trump still influences the masses, and people want to hear what he wants to say, even if it's these odd comments.
