Melania Trump Sends Support to LeBron James Amid Feud with President Trump

Melania Trump Sends Support to LeBron James Amid Feud with President Trump

It looks like President Donald Trump and wife Melania have a difference of opinions when it comes to LeBron James.

On Friday night (August 3), the 72-year-old president insulted the 33-year-old NBA player’s intelligence after his interview with CNN’s Don Lemon – where he slammed Trump for “dividing” the country.

“Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!” Donald tweeted.

The following day, the First Lady released a statement in support of LeBron.

“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,” Melania‘s spokesperson Stephanie Grisham said in a statement.

Melania‘s statement continued: “As you know, Mrs. Trump has traveled the country and world talking to children about their well-being, healthy living, and the importance of responsible online behavior with her Be Best initiative.”

In the end, Melania said she would be “would be open to visiting the I Promise School in Akron” – the school LeBron recently opened in his hometown where students will receive free meals, a free bike, and free college tuition once they graduate.

    Don’t you mean that Melania is open to using Lebron’s school to show off her shoes, hair, clothes, and make-up because let’s be honest Melania only cares about the fluffpieces that tabloids write about her. Melania is a fraud. Melania has not traveled the world talking to kids about their well being, health, and cyber behavior. She has traveled the world showing off her expensive shoes and clothes. Seriously? How is she going to talk to kids about their cyber behavior, when she doesn’t even talk to her own husband about HIS cyber behavior? If she encourages people to talk about issues concerning kids why has she been so silent about the kids in the detention centers and how they are being molested, raped, and killed?

    Easy on the propaganda CNN, TMZ which owned by CNN….. CNN asked her spokesperson for a statement of LeBron’s working with kids and his school she gives generic reply of support, CNN headlines along with TMZ and their media minions ( that are told do these stories) conflates it with the Presidents tweet, as if the spoke person knew about the tweet when CNN reached out to them.

    That is how the media operates all orchestrated “news”,

    Really the Obama’s had celebrity parties every weekend, and Michelle Obama was on the cover of beauty mags ever other month LoL. Talk about hypocrites.

    When did Michelle Obama ever in 8 years visit a disaster site in America, never unlike Melania
    Melinda wears mostly sneakers when she visits schools and is married to a billionaire for over a decade, what was Michele Obama’s reason for wearing for high-end designer clothes and couture, when the Obama’s moved into the White House they didn’t even assets worth million dollars.
    Michelle’s staff was 2 times that Melania’s ( goole it)

    Please I am not even American I don’t know Trump takes all shit taking from loser celebrities, and the media who work 24/7 make fake news like this story here instead reporting the news.

    You are defending Trump and telling lies about the Obamas, so it was very obvious that you are a Russian bot.

    Melania wore sneakers only after she got backlash for wearing heels.
