Melania Trump supports LeBron James after husband's twitter attack

Melania Trump supports LeBron James after husband's twitter attack

However hard it is to believe that Ahmadinejad - the man who claimed no gay people existed in Iran - "loves all", Donald Trump can certainly unite some very unlikely allies against him.

FLOTUS isn't the only one to throw support behind James.

Along with Jordan, a number of other athletes spoke out in support of James. "He made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do", the president tweeted. "#BeBest", Lemon tweeted, using the hashtag of her youth wellbeing awareness campaign, which advocates against cyberbullying.

Jordan came to James' defense Saturday, saying through a spokesperson, "I support LJ. He's doing an awesome job for his community", Jordan said in a statement to The Associated Press through his representative via text Saturday. James had said worse about the president.

The comment drew outrage from many public figures, including Michael Jordan and several other current and former National Basketball Association players. "They're the reason why this school is here today".

Only a couple more sleeps until we find out.

"This has now turned into something completely ridiculous - we're unable to have a conversation, so I'm just going to go to the next segment, OK?" the Fox News host said.

It could be that Trump's wife and daughter and some top aides are fighting a battle to safeguard their own principles and beliefs within the eye of the Trump storm and carefully chose areas where they can distance themselves from the President to protect their own identities.

Noah pointed out that Trump has had disputes with U.S. Reps.

Trump's counselor Kellyanne Conway echoed the comments of the President's daughter Sunday.

But on Sunday the top U.S. envoy to Khartoum said the United States still backed the process. "Where will I get this?" he added. Thousands of people have died in the 2013 civil war after troops loyal to the rebel Machar clashed with government troops.

Some also speculated Trump's attack came as LeBron had moved to California, which is not a swing state like OH, where he previously lived, unscathed by the President's wrath.

"Oh, and LeBron and Kevin: You're great players but no one voted for you", she continued.

"Even POTUS" supporters found the tweet to be in bad taste.

"And then once he became President of the United States, and you have to hold his feet to the fire, all of a sudden he doesn't like what I'm doing", Lemon said.

No word yet on whether the first lady - or Ingraham, for that matter - is open to watching "Shut Up and Dribble" when it airs this fall.

But it is also offering new insight into the President's unashamed willingness to launch attacks that touch on the most sensitive fault lines of American life, like race and freedom of expression, that even some of those closest to him find hard to publicly defend. "He's kind of used sport to. divide us and that's something I can't relate to, because I know that sport was the first time I ever was around someone white". In June, Trump said that neither the Cleveland Cavaliers - James' previous team - nor the Golden State Warriors would be invited to the White House following the NBA Finals.

Melania is the second woman in the President's life to publicly distance herself from his opinions this week alone.

Asked if he'd considered tweeting a response sticking up for his fellow superstar, Rodgers replied, "Actually, I texted with a friend and I said this: 'LeBron needs no help". National Basketball Association player Karl-Anthony Towns wrote: "So let me get this straight: Flint, MI has dirty water still, but you anxious about an interview about a man doing good for education and generations of kids in his hometown?"

James appeared to ignore the chaos surrounding him on Saturday, and focused on his new school.
