Trump aims tweet at LeBron James, questions his intelligence

President Trump labeled CNN's Dom Lemon as the "dumbest man on television" after his interview with LeBron James in a weird tweet that ended, 'I like Mike!' I like Mike!' Trump posted on Friday evening.

At the end of the interview, Lemon asked if James, "What would you say to the president if he were sitting right here?"

Following the tweet, which came in a week after James opened his I Promise School for at-risk children in Akron, Ohio, Trump was predictably lashed for insinuating that James was unintelligent.

James was to be at the school to welcome students and make his first public comments since deciding to join the Lakers. Basically, the basketball world has not only gotten conditioned to watching James participate in the playoffs, but the standard operating procedure has been watching him and his teams compete for a championship.

James also said he wouldn't attend a ceremony at the White House if his team had won the NBA Finals. James also mentioned Colin Kaepernick, who was targeted by Trump for his protests over racial injustice by kneeling during the anthem.

National Archives to review all Kavanaugh records by October, potentially delaying confirmation
Republicans have been hesitant to request those records, however, and have accused Democrats of engaging in stalling tactics. The Bush records review team has already reviewed 125,000 pages and handed them over to the Senate Judiciary Committee.


This particular initiative of National Basketball Association star LeBron James has received ardent support of the former First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama. Now only third and fourth graders are enrolled, but the institution plans to add second and fifth grades in 2019, then expanding to a first through eighth grade lineup by 2020. "For kids, in general, all they want to know is that someone cares".

Having kids around my same age and we having the same goals in mind really stopped me from going the other way, and that's what we have at this school. I've rode the same bikes on the streets that they ride on.

"We want to create an environment of family where you want to always be around your family", said James.

USA Today reports the school will have 12 teachers and each classroom will hold 20 students. "They have the dreams, they have the aspirations".
