As the NFL crawls its way to yet another weekend of “We hate America” protests, other athletes have stepped up to support their heroes in helmets. The most prominent being Lebron James off the NBA’s Cleveland Cavaliers.
James felt it appropriate to lecture us on our voting mistakes, and take heart in the knowledge he forgives us for our idiocy.
Showing solidarity with the social justice cause celebre of athletes kneeling during the national anthem, James hit President Trump on Twitter over the weekend for lambasting the protests and calling for boycotts against the NFL. However, his rhetoric against the President went a particularly ill-advised direction when he trashed his supporters during a press conference on Monday.
“No matter whether you voted for him or not, you may have made a mistake and that’s OK, if you voted for him. It’s OK. I’ve done things for my daughter and realized I shouldn’t have gave my daughter that many damn Skittles. Maybe I shouldn’t have done that,” he said.
“At the end of the day, I don’t think a lot of people was educated,” he said. “And I think that’s one of the biggest problems that we have. When it becomes vote time, people are just not educated on either the individual or what’s going on in the state of the world right now. … I don’t think a lot of people are educated and they make choices and say things that are uneducated.”
You could probably tell by his remarks, but Lebron James did not go to college – not that college is the be and all of intelligence. Unfortunately, James also never learned to tie his shoes, feed himself, or disregard his own feces. One would think a professional sports league would send out an ambassador who could speak in complete, coherent sentences. I guess that was too much to ask from the NBA.
