Basketball star LeBron James is picking up some unusual allies in his quest to take down President Trump. But his latest ally proves that he’s on the wrong side of history.
The feud between the commander-in-chief and James has been heating up in recent weeks over the athlete’s critical comments of the president.
During an interview with Don Lemon for CNN, James claimed that President Trump, “kinda used sports to kinda divide us, and that’s something that I can’t relate to. I can’t sit back and say nothing.”
It’s odd that James would say it’s the president using sports to divide when it was the knee-taking liberal Colin Kaepernick who decided to inject politics into sports in the first place.
The president then took to Twitter to mock both Don Lemon and LeBron James for their blatant bias against him, and said he preferred Michael Jordan to James.
Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!

Another famous figure took to Twitter to weigh in on the feud and defend James, but this is one supporter James may not want to have.
Iran’s former hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s quest to return to the spotlight now includes weighing in on a spat between President Donald Trump and basketball star LeBron James.
Ahmadinejad used Twitter — which is banned in Iran — to write Sunday: “In my opinion everyone especially a President should love all, and not differentiate between them.” He added that he loved NBA greats James and Michael Jordan, as well as former Denver Nuggets player Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf.
But like LeBron James, Ahmadinejad is a massive hypocrite. He claims that “everyone should love all” and “not differentiate”, yet he did all of the above while he was president of Iran. Oh, the Iran-y
Ahmadinejad not only persecuted thousands of Jews and Christians in Iran while he was president, he also flat out denied that the Holocaust even happened.
It’s hard to believe that the former Iranian president “loves all” when his theocracy frequently chanted, “death to America” and tortured, executed or imprisoned anyone who was not a Muslim.
It’s also been alleged that Ahmadinejad played a role in the Iran hostage crisis in 1979.
