On Friday evening, President Donald Trump sent out a tweet while watching a replayed interview between CNN correspondent Don Lemon and LeBron James regarding the opening of LeBron's "I promise" schools. Trump said that Lemon made LeBron look smart which is not easy to do.
Ben Maller thinks that the reaction to this tweet is overblown. First off, Maller thinks that Trump was directing his ire towards Don Lemon and that LeBron just got caught in the crossfire. Secondly, LeBron has opened himself up to this type of rhetoric by going after Trump first.
