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

Sen. Menendez directly addressed that comment with his first tweet on Monday night.

He first recapped the events of the past few days, in case anyone had not been following: On Friday, Trump had watched a rerun of an interview between Lemon and James to talk about a nonprofit school he just opened, during which the National Basketball Association star told the anchor: "Our president is kind of trying to divide us".

Interviewer Don Lemon criticised Mr Trump's tweet, and responded by referring to the separation of child migrants from their parents: "Who's the real dummy?" He called Lemon "the dumbest man on television", and James a close runner up.

Nevertheless, her comments were the subject the following month of a "Saturday Night Live" opening monologue by Charles Barkley, who noted that "this country has a great tradition of athletes speaking their minds" and told James to "keep on dribbling and don't ever shut up".

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.

The Los Angeles Lakers were able to make a huge splash in free agency this offseason when they signed LeBron James to a four-year deal.

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.


"Is this who we really are?".

On Saturday, in the latest show of independence from the East Wing, her spokeswoman issued a statement that effectively distanced herself from her husband's remarks, even saying she would be open to visiting the school James opened.

Many tweeted both about separating children from their parents at the border, and of changes to how college students are treated and how their education is paid for.

Speaking to NFL.com on Tuesday, the Green Bay Packers quarterback sounded off on the recent media spat between fellow sports star LeBron James and America's commander-in-chief. "He's doing an fantastic job for his community", Jordan said in a statement to The Associated Press through his representative via text Saturday.

- I care, why don't you?

"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.

Menendez wrote in a tweet Monday that Trump wouldn't have questioned James' intelligence or charity work if he were white.
