As president deals with tragedy, Lebron James slams Trump: He doesn’t ‘give a f*** about the people’

NBA superstar Lebron James got political in a conversation on ESPN’s “Uninterrupted,” leaving no doubt where he stood on President Trump.

James joined NBA champion Kevin Durant and ESPN host Cari Champion for a drive in an Uber, and the discussion naturally turned to what professional athletes think about the President of the United States.

“The climate is hot. The number one job in America, the appointed person is someone who doesn’t understand the people. And really don’t give a f— about the people,” James said, referring to President Trump.

“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 that this is not the way,” he added.

It’s not even a surprise when he says something. It’s like laughable,” James continued. “It’s laughable and it’s scary.”

Meanwhile the president was dealing with a horrific mass shooting in Parkland, Florida that left at least 17 people dead.

“I want to speak now directly to America’s children, especially those who feel lost alone confused or even scared. I want you to know that you are never alone, and you never will be,” Trump said in televised  remarks.

“You have people who care about you, who love you and who will do anything at all to protect you. If you need help, turn to a teacher, a family member, a local police officer or a faith leader. Answer hate with love. Answer cruelty with kindness,” he said.

“In these moments of heartache and darkness, we hold on to God’s word in scripture: ‘I have heard your prayer and seen your tears. I will heal you.’ “We trust in that promise, and we hold fast to our fellow Americans in their time of sorrow,” the president said.

Let it be known that on a day of national mourning, it was Lebron James out speaking words of division, while the president was speaking about tolerance and kindness towards others.
