Program Caption Conceal Caption NBA Finals: Heat stay alive with Game 5 win, set sights on more
SportsPulse: Mackenzie Salmon breaks down what was quickly the most entertaining game of this NBA Finals, which saw Jimmy Butler and the Heat out-duel the Lakers and require a Video game 6.
President Donald Trump knocked Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James throughout a Friday interview with Rush Limbaugh, calling James “a hater” and “nasty spokesperson.”
Trump’s radio interview on “The Rush Limbaugh Show” aired quickly before the Lakers-Miami Heat NBA Finals Video Game 5, which the Heat won 111-108.
“The NBA has ended up being so political that no one cares about it anymore,” Trump said. He acknowledged that James is “an excellent basketball gamer,” prior to including: “Individuals don’t wan na see a guy that way. They do not want to see that. We have enough trouble throughout the week, you don’t wan na sit down watching a basketball video game and then enjoy somebody that dislikes your guts, OK. He’s a hater.
“LeBron has been a spokesman, I don’t know I have actually never ever met him, all I understand is when he endorsed Hillary,” Trump stated. “LeBron is a spokesperson for the Democratic celebration. An extremely nasty spokesperson.”
James in 2017 called Trump a “bum” in a tweet, and in August, when inquired about Trump’s problems about the NBA’s advocacy to support the Black Lives Matter movement, James said, “I really do not believe the basketball community are unfortunate about losing his viewership, him seeing the game.”
James is supporting the Joe Biden project this year and supported the Hillary Clinton project in 2016.
