Even Trump’s Own Wife Is Condemning His Racist LeBron Attack

Donald Trump is a stone cold racist. And he often does what racists do, which is to race-bait. That is just what he did on Twitter with NBA star LeBron James. After James sat down with CNN’s Don Lemon for a frank and wide-ranging interview, Trump called Lemon dumb, and then proceeded to say that he made LeBron look smart, “which isn’t easy to do.” Everyone saw this for the racist attack that it was, and the bullhorn of racism to his hateful supporters. The attack was so blatantly racist and vile that even his wife, Melania Trump, could not stand behind her man.

In a statement from the First Lady’s office, she went to bat for LeBron, saying the basketball star is “working to do good things”:

“It looks like LeBron James is working to do good things on behalf of our next generation and just as she always has, the First Lady encourages everyone to have an open dialogue about issues facing children today.”

Now, this is a brave thing for Melania to do, since her husband is clearly an absolute bully, and who knows what kind of backlash she’ll face for it once he gets her into the privacy of the White House residence. After all, Trump is just the type to be a closet abuser. Far be it from me to speculate, but at the very least, she’ll face harsh words from her orange imbecile of a husband.

This is what happens when we let the racists of America pick the president, folks. It gets uglier by the day, and as the pressure from the Mueller investigation grows ever more burdensome for Trump, he’ll get worse and worse. We can bet our bottom dollars that the first thing he’ll do is use his racism to distract from his daily assaults on democracy. Want to stop this dangerous nonsense? VOTE BLUE in November 2018.
