A Fox News host thinks LeBron James should nix the political talk.
Laura Ingraham dissed the Cleaveland Cavaliers forward’s recent remarks about President Donald Trump, calling them “R-rated,” “barely intelligible,” and “ungrammatical.”
“The number one job in America, the point person, is someone who doesn’t understand the people,” James said on the Cari Champion-hosted web series, “Rolling with the Champion.” “And really don’t give a f— about the people.”
Ingraham didn’t only lash out on James. She unleashed on Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant, who also appeared in the episode. Durant, James and Champion all remarked on Trump — from the country not being “ran by a great coach” to the president’s “laughable” racist remarks.
“It’s also scary because I shouldn’t be numb to your racist comments,” Champion said. “I shouldn’t be numb to your behavior.”
“I’m numb to this commentary,” Ingraham quipped on the Thursday, Feb. 15 edition of her show. “Must they run their mouth like that? Unfortunately, a lot of kids and some adults take these ignorant comments seriously.
“Look, there might be a cautionary lesson in LeBron for kids: this is what happens when you attempt to leave high school a year early to join the NBA,” she continued. “And it’s always unwise to seek political advice from someone who gets paid $100 million a year to bounce a ball. Oh, LeBron and Kevin, you’re great players but no one voted for you. Millions elected Trump to be their coach. So, keep the political commentary to yourself or as someone once said, shut up and dribble.”
