Sen. Bob Menendez Calls Trump's Attack on LeBron James Racist

Sen. Bob Menendez Calls Trump's Attack on LeBron James Racist”

James, who just opened a state-of-the-art, tuition-free school in his home state of OH, has always been critical of Trump and his comments on race, which he repeated last week during an interview with CNN anchor Don Lemon.

And by saying he preferred Michael Jordan to James, he was endorsing another star National Basketball Association athlete who has sometimes been criticized for not doing more in his career to highlight political, racial and social issues important to the black community. "He's doing an fantastic job for his community".

Trump blasted James late Friday after an interview aired with CNN anchor Don Lemon in which he deemed Trump divisive. He added the hashtag #BeBest, a reference to Melania Trump's anti-bullying initiative.

Earlier this year LeBron James drew criticism from Trump supporters for comments that Trump doesn't "give a f*** about the people", which led to Fox news pundit Laura Ingraham to suggest that James should "shut up and dribble".

Actress Charlotte Rae, star of 'Facts of Life,' dead at 92
Charlotte is survived by her two children, Larry and Andrew Strauss, from her marriage to U.S. film composer John Strauss. The actress was nominated for two Tony awards and received an an Emmy nomination in 1975 and again in 1982.

Maybe watching him engage in a Twitter feud with Trump isn't the battle we envisioned, but it would certainly entertain the sports world. James had said worse about the president.

"Listen, I don't close the chapter on anything or close the book on anything", James said when asked if he would return to Cleveland to end his career.

Last week, James returned to his hometown Akron, Ohio to set up a new public school for at-risk students, the I PROMISE School (IPS). "LeBron just pledged millions for a school for underprivileged kids".

But it is also offering new insight into the President's unashamed willingness to launch attacks that touch on the most sensitive fault lines of American life, like race and freedom of expression, that even some of those closest to him find hard to publicly defend. "But because of how important it is for each of us to stand up for what is right and what is decent, I'm going to tell you exactly how I feel, starting right now". According to Deadline, Shut Up and Dribble is specifically about exploring "the changing role of athletes in our fraught cultural and political environment, through the lens of the National Basketball Association".

National Archives Says Kavanaugh Doc Request Could Go On Through October
There are two separate reviews of documents happening simultaneously: One by the Bush team and another by the National Archives. Grassley's committee communications director Taylor Foy told TPM in an email, asked about NARA's letter, "Because the George W.

"I don't know how many times we can say, as a player and as a group, how much we love and support and appreciate the troops, and the opportunities this country allows us". Trump lashed out on Twitter at both men, insulting their intelligence. "These are the "very fine people" in the president's eyes", Lemon said.

"So once again, President Trump is feuding with a famous black person who dared to criticize him", Noah said.

Melania is the second woman in the President's life to publicly distance herself from his opinions this week alone.

James appeared to ignore the chaos surrounding him on Saturday, and focused on his new school. I've wondered sometimes if he will succeed.
