LeBron James’ documentary series, ‘Shut Up and Dribble,’ to air on Showtime

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

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".

James said Trump is creating a wedge by using situations like National Football League player Colin Kaepernick kneeling during the anthem and "uninviting" NBA star Steph Curry to the White House. "I like Mike", Trump tweeted, sparking immediate outrage from Hollywood and beyond.

In response to Lemon asking what James would say to the president if he were sitting right there, the National Basketball Association star said: "I would never sit across from him. Most of America, anyway, not all of America".

"President Trump is trying a divide and conquer strategy here, and here's how it goes", he continued.

In another big disconnect last week, the top intelligence and foreign policy officials delivered a stark warning about Russian election interference, only for Trump to undermine it hours later by railing against the Russia "hoax".

During the interview, James also discussed a new school he has opened for underprivileged children in his home town of Akron, Ohio, which offers free meals and bikes to students, as well as job placement assistance for parents and an on-site food bank. "[LeBron James]. He's doing an unbelievable job for his community". Grisham added the first lady "would be open to visiting" James' new school. Even a spokeswoman for first lady Melania Trump praised James's charity work and mentioned "responsible online behavior" in a statement some imagined was a subtle rebuke to her husband. "Some of those people are white". And he has disinvited championship teams whose members have been critical of him from traditional White House visits.

She said she thought the President was referring to "some reporters" who she said "aren't always telling the truth".
