In a rally in Scranton, Pennsylvania on Monday, President Trump brought up the National Basketball Association, which has embraced woke activism and national anthem protests, and his supporters responded by chanting “LeBron James Sucks!” referring to the race-mongering Black Lives Matter (BLM) activist and NBA star.
National anthem protests and social justice activism has caused the league’s ratings in the United States to plunge to record lows. Other sports leagues have seen similar ratings freefalls thanks to their far-left politicization.
“How about basketball?” Trump asked. “How about LeBron? I felt very badly for LeBron. When they don’t respect our country, when they don’t respect our flag, nobody wants to watch.” The crowd responded by shouting, “LeBron James sucks!”
“What a crowd!” Trump replied.
In addition to refusing to work with Trump on issues important to the black community, the hypocrite James complains about his own country’s purported “systemic racism” but stays silent about the human rights abuses committed by the league’s backers in the Chinese regime.
