Hard pass.

You either love or hate Skip Bayless, if you listen to sports talk radio. He’s a character, to be certain. That being said, the former ESPN personality and current Fox Sports talking head has been around all things sports for decades.

He knows people. He has connections. And according to Skip, Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James, who openly supported Hillary Clinton in 2016 and has been wildly critical of President Trump since he first took office, is considering running for president of the United States “some day.”

You’d have to imagine based on popularity and his name alone, LeBron would snag quite a few votes – similarly to Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger when he ran for governor in blue California.

More from Breitbart:

Or, one could look at the fact that the report came from Skip Bayless, someone given to hyperbole and attention grabbing statements, and not take it seriously at all. Though, one imagines James would have the popularity and financial backing to make a better run at the presidency than half the current Democratic field, should he decide to do so.

If you ever listen to James speak, you’ll quickly deduce that he isn’t a very smart guy. Of course, the Lakers star has earned more money beyond his wildest dreams playing a child’s game, yet still has bad things to say about his country on a relatively regular basis.

If LeBron’s goal is the be the Colin Kaepernick of the NBA, it’s working.

President Trump Calls On United Nations To Hold China Accountable For Causing Pandemic

President Trump has come out and called upon the United Nations to step up to the plate and hold China accountable for causing the coronavirus pandemic that has swept across the globe, killing hundreds of thousands of people and almost leading to economic collapse for America and many other nations across the world. The president made his confrontational speech to the United Nations General Assembly in a recorded address a day earlier at the White House. The tone of his talk made it absolutely clear he’s not at all happy with China, the nation where this mess originated from. via Washington Examiner: His speech contained a list of accusations against Beijing, from allowing travelers to spread what he called the “China virus” around the world to polluting the oceans. “The Chinese government, and the World Health Organization, which is virtually controlled by China, falsely declared that there was no evidence of human-to-human transmission,” Trump said, calling on the U.N. to hold Beijing to account. “Later, they falsely said people without symptoms would not spread the disease,” he said. “The United Nations must hold China accountable for their actions. China absolutely should be held accountable for causing this mess. There are a lot of theories out there that suggest this virus was created and purposefully leaked into the world. We don’t know if that’s true, but even if it isn’t and the whole thing was an accident, the Chinese Communist Party is responsible for all of the horrific loss of life and economic damage this has caused. As such, they need to step up to the plate and make this right. They need to take responsibility for their actions and their blatant failures to get the spread of this illness under control.

Liberal Officials At State And Local Level Using Coronavirus Aid Money For Free College, Guaranteed Income

Published

on

State and local officials are taking full advantage of the millions of dollars they have received from CARES Act funding — before it reverts back to the federal government — by spending the money for many, many different kinds of liberal priorities, including free college, “Trunk or Treating,” or an experimental income program. The CARES Act has provided $139 billion for state and local governments. These payments have been used to fund a plethora of programs, including police budgets and utility assistance for struggling residents. And that is the sort of thing this money is supposed to go toward. Helping folks of all walks of life endure the hardships caused by the coronavirus and the subsequent shutdowns. However, liberals are using this money to support their own little pet projects and causes too. via Fox News: Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is spending millions on free college for more than 600,000 essential workers. Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell agreed to spend $629,000 to hire 15 community relations specialists. Democratic St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter recently announced a guaranteed income program for low-income families using $300,000 in CARES Act money but has received pushback from a fellow Democrat. Earlier in September, Rep. Betty McCollum, D-Minn., wrote a letter to Carter expressing concern that the spending fell outside of federal guidelines and could be subject to recoupment by the U.S. Treasury. https://twitter.com/MayorCarter/status/1301936145585106944 It’s not at all surprising to see liberals take money that was supposed to be designated to help folks struggling in the wake of the pandemic closures for things they’ve always wanted to have the money to put in motion. What’s maddening is these same officials are already standing in line, hands out, begging for more money because there isn’t enough to actually help people in their communities because they misappropriated the…
