Donald Trump might be banned from Facebook and Twitter, but that won’t stop him from getting a microphone and speaking his mind. He is also still game to tear down his opposition however he can, even if his opponent is one of the greatest basketball players to ever live.
The former POTUS took the stage this weekend at the Turning Point USA conference and he railed on LeBron James a bit. King James, along with the rest of the NBA, are strong supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement. This is something that Trump pushed back on many times throughout his presidency.
Trump hit on the subject of women’s basketball during his speech, and he said that he would only select trans athletes to play basketball. The conservative crowd proceeded to eat up Trump’s “joke” about trans people as he brought LeBron James’ name into the “punchline.”
“If I were a coach, I’ll tell you, I wouldn’t be talking to too many women as we know women. I’d be getting some of these people that, ‘they’re women,’ Somebody said that if LeBron James ever decided to get the operation, how would he be on the court?”
LeBron James has yet to comment on Trump bringing his name into this speech. The 45th POTUS went on to continue his tirade against LeBron as he said that the NBA ratings are down, and King James’ political leanings are to blame for that.
Donald Trump is still clinging to those supporters who haven’t left him yet. They are a vocal portion of the republican party, one that is taking over the idea of leaning “right.” We will have to see what he decides to do as 2024 looms closer, but he hasn’t stopped talking yet.
