Donald Trump Implies LeBron James is Stupid After CNN Interview (TWEET)

"I like Mike!" Trump tweeted. Feinstein, Trump blasted the California Democrat for being the "person leading our Nation on "Collusion" with Russia" and asked if she will "now investigate herself?"

Trump, who has been be a fan of James in years past, appeared to be responding to the player's criticism of him during his CNN interview with Lemon.

Trump called Lemon "the dumbest man on television", then implied LeBron is dumb.

LeBron James is leaving home again and leaving behind something he says is more meaningful than any of his National Basketball Association championships.

That echoed comments he made in January that Trump had "given people and racism... an opportunity to be out and outspoken without fear".

Most recently, James told Lemon in his interview, which aired Monday (four days before Trump's tweet) that the president is using sports to divide Americans. However, Trump did make the move of preemptively not inviting James' Cavaliers and their Warriors opponents last season, when both James and Warriors star Steph Curry said neither team had an interest in visiting the White House as NBA Champions.

Earlier this week, James was a guest on CNN Tonight with Don Lemon for an interview about the "I Promise" school that opened in Akron on Monday.

In 2013, Trump tweeted that he thought James was a "great player and a great guy".

Following his eighth straight appearance in the NBA Finals, James said he was still in "championship mode" as he headed into free agency.

LeBron James speaks while holding his daughter, Zhuri. And I realized "this is all because of sports'". "It sets precedents for what we should do as athletes on how we are a role model to a lot of kids that we may not know, that we may not see but that know us". One, because I believe our president is trying to divide us. "The most important thing we can give them is structure", says James, "they just want someone to feel like we care".
