Sen. Bob Menendez Calls Trump's Attack on LeBron James Racist

Michael Jordan says 'I support' LeBron James after Trump attack

He spoke for the next nine minutes. Bob Menendez says President Donald Trump's attack on National Basketball Association star LeBron James is part of a larger pattern of racist behavior.

As Trump critiques go, this was mild stuff.

The public feud between King James and the imperious President is on one level a personal and even ideological clash between two of the richest, most famous entertainers in American life whose outsize images outshine the confines of the roles they now play.

Trump also blamed the news media for incorrectly reporting that he was backing Rep. Steve Stivers in the special election - even though Trump himself in recent days had inadvertently tweeted his support for Stivers, who is in a different race, before correcting himself.

"The president is beefing with LeBron", Noah said, noting that Trump tweeted about James after the basketball player criticized the president in an interview with Don Lemon. "He made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do".

Gates testifies he and Manafort committed crimes
Similar to prior witnesses, Ms Laporta testified Mr Gates and Mr Manafort were in lockstep but that Mr Manafort was in charge. It's important to note that some of the alleged bank fraud did occur while Manafort was running the Trump campaign.

"The president has called a lot of people stupid", Lemon told his viewers. What I've noticed over the last few months is that he's kind of using sport to divide us.

"This president constantly denigrates people of color and women, too", Lemon said during his nine-minute monologue responding to Trump's Twitter attack from Friday.

Others chose to point out Trump seemed to have little issue with white athletes, and had also publicly slammed Stephen Curry, LaVar Ball, Colin Kaepernick, and Marshawn Lynch.

Trump has lambasted National Football League players who knelt during playing of the national anthem as a form of protest against law enforcement's treatment of racial minorities.

He played clip after clip after clip of Trump at his rallies, calling Waters, the black congresswoman, "low-IQ.". "Not once. He's never let these kids down", he said. This president traffics in racism and is fueled by bullying. "Because I believe our president is trying to divide us".

Oil falls 2% on rising supply, concern about trade tensions
US crude oil exports averaged 1.31 million barrels per day last week, down by 1.37 million barrels per day from the previous week. Iranian officials have warned the country would not easily yield to a renewed USA campaign to strangle Iran's vital oil exports.

Since taking office, Trump has clashed with several United States sports stars, most notably after he called on the National Football League (NFL) owners to fire players who protest during the national anthem.

But Rodgers said the fact that James hadn't dignified the attack with a response was "absolutely handsome".

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. "Not all of America".

"Shut Up and Dribble" will depict the influence that sports have on politics.

Melania Trump's spokeswoman quickly distanced the first lady from the criticism of James, saying in a statement Saturday afternoon that it appeared James was "working to do good things on behalf of our next generation" and that the first lady would be open to visiting his new school for at-risk children. Lemon asked his viewers, eight minutes into his broadcast. He added that "This president constantly denigrates people of color and women".
