It’s no secret that a vast majority of professional athletes and celebrity actors are anti-Trump, extreme left-wing progressives who often speak ignorantly out of both sides of their mouths and constantly take shots at President Trump and his supporters.
However, what basketball superstar LeBron James did to a Trump supporter attending a game is not only unprofessional, it’s bullying.
A fan was wearing a MAGA hat at a game when James went to throw a towel in the crowd, a typical souvenir for those who attend, but instead he chose to tease the man by tossing it 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.
Here’s the video of the incident:
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.

I know zilch about basketball or Lebron James but I can tell you which man I think is a king and it sure isn’t the man in the red hat.

Aren’t these people just oh so wonderful? Such compassion, such patience and tolerance for those with a differing view of the world.
Hope you all caught the sarcasm there.
There’s no reason to treat fans with such disrespect, especially over politics. James needs to keep his beliefs off the court. When he’s on the court he’s a paid entertainer who needs to treat those who support his career with respect and decency.
That doesn’t mean he has to agree with their political expression, nor support their candidates, but he must respect their difference of opinion.
Shameful behavior for a sports legend.
