Wow, Britt. You really nailed this one. Here's a gold star.
President Donald Trump, out of nowhere Friday night, reached out and called LeBron James stupid, showing a complete lack of respect just days after LeBron opened an academy for at-risk youth in Akron, Ohio.
Ignoring the fact that LeBron's helped the least fortunate members of his community more in this sweeping gesture than Trump ever has, ex-ESPN reporter Britt McHenry thinks this criticism was totally justified.
Not so long ago, LeBron James called @realDonaldTrump a “bum” & has repeatedly maligned Trump. Rhetoric goes both ways. If LeBron doesn’t want the President to “divide,” perhaps stop using divisive rhetoric to attack him in interviews and Twitter.— Britt McHenry (@BrittMcHenry) August 4, 2018
Yeah, that's it.
Except for, you know, LeBron only called Trump a "bum" because he disinvited Steph Curry from the White House in a sweeping rude gesture. Additionally, if Trump calling someone trying to uplift society's weakest "stupid" is the right's idea of an awesome comeback to something unrelated LeBron said a year ago, then congrats, Mr. President. You're the George Costanza of comebacks.

Also, you know, there is that other thing. LeBron James is a basketball player. Donald Trump is the leader of the free world and the freaking President of the United States.
Umm Lebron is not the President of the United States.— Dorin Dickerson (@scorindorin) August 4, 2018
Even if we're absurdly holding the two men to the same standard, LBJ is still wiping the floor with the Commander in Chief.
@BrittMcHenry doesn’t it make you scratch your head just a little bit that POTUS is tweeting about Lebron at midnight on Friday? Not even a little bit? Is a catfight with an NBA player really the number one thing on his to do list?— Dave Franklin (@dfranklinesq) August 4, 2018
And now that Bron doesn't live in a swing state, all bets are off. One-on-one. No holds barred. Britt McHenry, you can't come.
