Dan Rather Just Unloaded On Trump Over his ‘Racist’ Attack On LeBron James And Don Lemon

Veteran newsman Dan Rather responded yesterday to the president’s racist rant against NBA star LeBron James and CNN host Don Lemon. Rather was clearly shocked and appalled by the fact that the President of The United States would find the time to angrily attack 2 successful black men.

Rather took to Twitter to express his disgust. He tweeted writing, “This is apparently what the President of the United States feels the need to share with the world at what should be long past his bedtime? It’s a disgrace. It’s racist. And it’s the product of petty but dangerous hatreds. I repeat this is the PRESIDENT??!?”

The CBS News anchor’s tweet was in response to President Trump’s attack on Don Lemon and LeBron James. On Friday, Trump tweeted writing, “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!”

Lemon interviewed the LeBron James this week. The interview was focused on the new school James opened for at-risk children in his hometown of Akron, Ohio. LeBron’s new school is public. Children who attend the school are given bikes so that they are assured a way to get to school. They are also offered college tuition. The children are fed at school and their families are given access to a food pantry, counseling, and job training programs.

LeBron was praised by former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle for his school. Michelle Obama said that she and her husband are “so proud” of LeBron for opening the school. She also encouraged LeBron to “keep using [his] platform for good.” She tweeted in part, “Kids in Akron and across the US are lucky to have you as a role model on and off the court. Keep using your platform for good and giving our kids a chance to shoot for the stars.”

During the interview with Lemon, James said that Trump uses sports “to divide us,” something he does not understand as sports have been a unifying force in his own life. James has made no secret of his disapproval of President Trump. He has called the president a “bum” and said that he does not “give a f**k” about the American people. For his part, the president has made a regular habit of attack black athletes for their positive work of the court.
