Zabilježena je i "erupcija na Twitteru", nakon što je predsjendik SAD-a, Donald Trump, napao NBA zvijezdu LeBrona Jamesa.
Podsjećamo, Trump je napisao:
"LeBron James je dao intervju najglupljem čovjeku na TV-u, Donu Lemonu. On je učinio LeBrona pametim, što nije lako uopće. Meni se sviđa Mike (Michael Jordan)".
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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 4, 2018
Tokom intervju sa Donom Lemonom, LeBron James, novi košarkaš i lider franšize LA Lakersa je optužio Trumpa za rasizam, te rekao da on koristi sport za podijeli zemlju.
Putem Twittera oglasio se i CNN-ov Don Lemon koji je Trumpu poručio:
"Ko je pravi glupan? Čovjek koji stavlja djecu u učionice ili u kaveze?".
Naime, ranije je LeBron James pokrenuo projekat "I Promise School", a dok se čeka reakcija samog košarkaša - Twitter zajednica je stala uz njega poručivši da je James nedavno otvrio školu za socijalno ugroženu djecu u njegovom rodnom gradu Akronu u Saveznoj državi Ohio.
Ovo su samo neke od brojnih reakcija, kako od novinara u SAD-u, tako i od javnih ličnosti, koje je sumirao Huffington Post.
This week LeBron opened a school for hundreds of at-risk kids while Donald Trump's education secretary attempts to undo college loan forgiveness for students who were “knowingly deceived” by their schools and rolls back Obama-era guidelines on discrimination in schools.— TV's Harrison Faigen (@hmfaigen) August 4, 2018
LeBron James has done more good for this country in the last week as a basketball player than Trump has in a year and a half as President of the United States— Adam (@SixersAdam) August 4, 2018
LeBron James wants to use sports to unite Americans.— Kaivan Shroff (@KaivanShroff) August 4, 2018
Trump wants to use sports to divide Americans.
LeBron James just opened a school so kids can learn.
Trump has made it easier for kids to be shot at school.
LeBron James doesn’t have “small hands.”
So Trump finally went at LeBron, huh? Shocked it took this long. Not shocked it happened during a week where LeBron literally opened a school for at-risk kids.— Chris Herring (@Herring_NBA) August 4, 2018
Trump insulting LeBron the same week that he opened a school designed to support at-risk students is peak disgusting Trump. https://t.co/YRCjH05wd5— Mason Ginsberg (@MasonGinsberg) August 4, 2018
RT if you’d much rather have LeBron James as president than Donald Trump.— Max Weiss (@maxthegirl) August 4, 2018
Dear Bron, I wrote you but you still ain't call me...pic.twitter.com/Gcd4hMLqLf— Tristan (@AyoTristan) August 4, 2018
It's not just that the "President" of the United States began attacking LeBron James at midnight. It's that that he retweeted Hannity, retweeted a wrestling guy, said something about fire extinguishers, retweeted Drudge four times, and THEN attacked LeBron James at midnight.— Palmer Report (@PalmerReport) August 4, 2018
Here’s Trump heaping praise on LeBron a few years ago, while spelling “Miami” wrong: https://t.co/16yZ2CWens— Palmer Report (@PalmerReport) August 4, 2018
Imagine taking shots at LeBron after what he did this week. pic.twitter.com/h3yKvADXzy— Scott Cullen (@tsnscottcullen) August 4, 2018
Interesantno, Twitter zajednica sada priželjkuje da se oglasi i sam Michael Jordan. Također, čeka se i reakcija samog LeBrona Jamesa.
