Basketball superstar LeBron abandoned his hometown to chase another NBA title and make millions of dollars. But after he said he wouldn’t visit Trump’s White House, it looks like his new Democrat home is serving him some karma.
‘King James’ made international headlines this month when he decided to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers.
James has also made headlines in the past for being an outspoken critic of Trump.
After the President withdrew an invitation to the White House in 2017 to the Golden State Warriors, singling out Stephen Curry for “hesitating”, James didn’t hesitate to rush to Curry’s defense, or to take a dig at the President.
U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going! So therefore ain't no invite. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!

But James’ ire isn’t only reserved for the president. He also actively insults his supporters.
According to James, Trump voters in his home state of Ohio aren’t intelligent, and they “made a mistake” voting for Trump.
“At the end of the day, I don’t think a lot of people was educated,” James said. “And am I saying that the people of Ohio wasn’t educated? Am I saying that some of the other states that voted for him was uneducated? They could have been or they could not have been. But that doesn’t mean it was the right choice.”
Grammatical errors aside, if anyone is uneducated, it’s James. He may be earning a whopping $153.3 million for his four-year deal with the Lakers, but one Congressman reminded him that his new state will be taking a huge chunk of his salary.
From Washington Examiner:
Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., late Sunday warned LeBron James that he’s about to get hit with a huge tax bill after signing a four-year deal with the Los Angeles Lakers.
“LOL! Prepare to pay the highest taxes you ever have in your career!! You should have held out for more just to afford the Moonbeam weather tax!!!” Nunes tweeted, using California Gov. Jerry Brown’s nickname, “Moonbeam.”

The “weather tax” is a joke in California referring to “the high price of real estate and the high cost of living due to the combined tax burden,” funding California’s “socialistic ways,” a columnist for the Beach Street News wrote.
California currently has both the highest sales tax and income tax in the nation.
But high taxes are exactly what James voted for when he cast his ballot for Hillary Clinton. It’s fitting that he should live with these elitists now, since he’s adopted their attitude.
Like all liberals, James has to belittle anyone who disagrees with him. He has the nerve to call Trump supporters uneducated, but he barely finished high school, and didn’t even attend college. Now he’s moving to a state where he will have to pay exorbitantly high taxes, because it’s run by the same Party he constantly defends.
NBA should stand for “No Brains Allowed.”
