Don Lemon Responds to Trump’s Insulting Tweet About His LeBron James Interview

LeBron James speaks at the opening ceremony for the I Promise School

In the interview, James discusses his I Promise School, a public elementary school that he opened in his hometown of Akron, Ohio.

Donald Trump picked an odd time to weigh in on the Michael Jordan vs. LeBron James debate.

LeBron James has just opened a school for underprivileged children in Ohio.

Heading into the weekend, the Trumpster lit up James on Twitter following an interview he did with "fake news" outlet CNN's Don Lemon.

He has repeatedly said that anyone who kneels during the anthem should be fired.

The CNN tweet in response appeared to be making reference to a recent report that Donald Trump exploded in anger after Melania turned to CNN while aboard Air Force One.

But Lemon and James, the three-time National Basketball Association champion and four-time league MVP, also touched on a few other subjects that led to Pres. Donald Trump, who must have been watching CNN Friday night and the Lemon-James interview specifically, tweeting out decidedly un-presidential attack on Lemon and James' intelligence.

Most of the interview focused on other matters, particularly James's efforts in OH to create an elementary school with an eye toward helping kids get their lives on track. Yahoo News White House correspondent Hunter Walker points out that before James started criticizing Trump, Trump used to be a fan.

The bad blood seemingly stems from when James called the president a "bum" after he retracted an invite for the Golden State Warriors to the White House, evem though they had already declined.

"I would never sit across from him", James said. "No".

James has always been critical of Trump. A man who puts kids in classrooms or one who puts kids in cages? "This tweet is immature and offensive I would like to know why he considers these two successful black men "dumb".

"Sounds like [first lady Melania Trump] had the remote last night", the network tweeted.

There was also this exceedingly spicy take from CNN PR. "We hope you both saw the incredible work of @KingJames", the network said.

The tweet from Mr. Trump's official account ended by saying "I like Mike!"
