LeBron James will have to wait for another game to ascend to his NBA championship thrown but the Los Angeles Lakers superstar was crowned by President Trump.
During a Friday appearance on conservative talk radio titan Rush Limbaugh's nationally syndicated show, Trump weighed in on King James whose advocacy for Marxist-inspired Black Lives Matter has poisoned his league with divisive, toxic, racial politics.
The POTUS who has been a frequent target of the surly multimillionaire jabbed James as a "nasty" person as well as a "hater" and then dunked on him for the league's atrocious television ratings.
According to Trump:
"I don’t even know who’s playing in the Finals… LeBron has been a spokesman for the Democratic Party. A very nasty spokesman. He’s a great basketball player, but people don't want to see a guy that way. He’s a hater."
"You don't want to sit down, watch a basketball game, and then watch somebody that hates your guts, okay."
The NBA's horrific postseason ratings which have been attributed to James, the painting of BLACK LIVES MATTER on courts, and players wearing social justice slogans on their jerseys would seem to confirm Trump's analysis.
Via TMZ Sports "Donald Trump Rips 'Nasty' LeBron James '...He's A Hater":
Donald Trump just WENT OFF on Lebron James -- blasting him as a "nasty" person and a "hater" who's ruining pro basketball.
It was all part of an anti-Black Lives Matter tirade during an appearance Friday on "The Rush Limbaugh Show" ... when Trump blamed the NBA's lagging ratings on the league's pro-BLM efforts.
"The NBA has become so political that nobody cares about it anymore," Trump said.
"I don't even know who's playing in the Finals."
Of course, LeBron's Lakers are in the Finals -- taking on the Miami Heat. Game 5 is set for Friday night.
Trump says he's never met LeBron -- but it's clear he doesn't like him.
"LeBron is a spokesman for the democratic party and a very nasty spokesman," Trump said.
"Because, again, I've done so much for the Black community and people don't wanna see that and he's a great basketball player but people don't wanna see a guy that way. They don't want to see that. We have enough difficulty during the week, you don't wanna sit down watching a basketball game and then watch somebody that hates your guts, okay, He's a hater."
Trump also managed to ridicule Hillary Clinton who LeBron campaigned for in 2016:
“The NBA has become so political that nobody cares about it anymore… I don’t even know who’s playing in the finals!” the president said. “I don’t know anyone that’s watching the NBA. Lebron has been a spokesman, I don’t know him, I never met him. All I know is when he endorsed Hillary I thought, ‘That’s the greatest endorsement I’ve ever seen’ because when he endorsed Hillary four years ago, she came up to his knee. I said, ‘That is not the best-looking president I’ve ever seen.”
Later on Friday, James and the Lakers extended by NBA's ratings misery when they came up on the short end of a 108-111 finals contest against the overmatched Miami Heat.
