President Donald Trump went after CNN’s Don Lemon after he aired an interview with basketball star LeBron James.
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!

James attacked Trump in the interview saying he would never sit across from Trump and accused him of trying to divide the U.S. for raising the issue of standing for the national anthem. “What I’ve noticed over the last few months is that he’s kind of used sports to kind of divide us,” James said.
Trump has long harbored a feud with Lemon, frequently attacking him on Twitter in the past.
Another false story, this time in the Failing @nytimes, that I watch 4-8 hours of television a day – Wrong! Also, I seldom, if ever, watch CNN or MSNBC, both of which I consider Fake News. I never watch Don Lemon, who I once called the “dumbest man on television!” Bad Reporting.
