LeBron James Calls President Trump A "Bum" For Attacking The NBA And The NFL

President Donald Trump did not win many NBA or NFL fans this weekend, with his polarizing, divisive statements.

(AllHipHop News) NBA star LeBron James joined rapper Jay-Z in trashing Donald Trump over the weekend.

In LeBron's case, the NBA star was reacting to divisive tweets the President sent out this morning, regarding the Golden State Warriors' visit to the White House.

During a press conference on Friday (September 22), Steph Curry stated that he and several of his teammates were on the fence about whether they would accept an invitation to Trump's White House.

It has become a tradition for the reigning championship team to visit the White House, but Steph Curry and his teammates were not sure whether or not they would except an invitation. When Trump caught wind of Steph Curry's comments, he sent out a series of tweets blasting the Golden State Warriors' top player.

LeBron stepped up to defend one of his own in a series of tweets as well, where he hurled some insults at the POTUS.

A variety of other players echoed LeBron James' is criticism, including Chris Paul, and Kobe Bryant.

Just before his tweets trashing Steph Curry and the NBA, Donald Trump also pissed off the NFL during a speech supporting Republican candidate Luther Strange, in Alabama.

In that rant, President Trump labeled NFL player Colin Kaepernick a "son of a bitch" for kneeling during the national anthem, in protest of police brutality and racism in America.

Those comments were also condemned by a wide range of NFL players, including Roger Goodell, the head of the NFL.

"The NFL and our players are at our best when we help create a sense of unity in our country and our culture. There is no better example than the amazing response from our clubs and players to the terrible natural disasters we've experienced over the last month," Goodell said. "Divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players, and a failure to understand the overwhelming force for good our clubs and players represent in our communities."

Yesterday, LeBron James' tight friend Jay-Z offered "the highest disrespect" to President Trump during an interview on BBC News' Radio 1.
