In Game 3, superstar LeBron James seemingly dissed a fan of his who had the audacity to wear the iconic “Make America Great Again” hat.
Instead of tossing his towel, which is a typical souvenir for game-goers, to a nearby fan, the Cleveland Cavalier appears to snub the man in the red hat by intentionally tossing the towel just out of his reach. In the video clip that has gone viral, James even appears to fake-out the fan by motioning like he was going to give him the towel. The Trump supporter raises his hands to receive it before James tosses it in the other direction.
This is not entirely surprising given James’ open “resistance” to President Donald Trump and his apparent disdain for Trump supporters. In September, for example, the NBA great suggested Trump voters are ignorant. “I don’t think a lot of people was educated,” he said.
Whether James’ snub was intentional or not, the Left is racking up the apparent intolerance as a win.
Left-wing site “The Root” celebrated the LeBron snub as a black man’s powerful rejection of “white nationalism.” Seriously.
“An old white man wearing the new Ku Klux Klan hood of 2018, aka a red ‘Make America Great Again’ hat, held his hand to ask James for his sweat-soaked towel. James looked at the man and then threw the towel beyond his reach. … James will never be here for your white nationalist, tiki-torch-wielding, white supremacy bullshit.”
Other Trump critics on social media rejoiced over the diss, too.
Can’t you just feel the tolerance?
