OUCH: Michael Jordan Responds To Trump’s ‘I Like Mike’ Statement

By  Ashe Schow

On Friday, President Donald Trump tweeted: “Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He Made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!”

What Got Trump so mad? Well, the L.A. Lakers star said the president was using sports to divide the American people.

“[Trump] is dividing us and what I noticed over the last few months that he’s kinda used sport to divide us and that’s something I can’t relate to, because I know that sport was the first time I was ever around someone white,” James said.

On Saturday afternoon, former NBA star Michael Jordan (“Mike”) responded to the whole kerfuffle where it began — on CNN.

“I support LeBron James,” a spokesman for Jordan said. “He’s doing an amazing job for his community.”

This was in reference to, most recently, the news that James has opened a public school for at-risk students in third- and fourth-grades.
