Melania Trump Backs LeBron James after President’s Derogatory Tweet

Melania Trump’s not going to bat for her husband after his derogatory and utterly disrespectful tweet Friday night … and is instead lending her support to LeBron James.

 President Trump slammed LeBron James this weekend, questioning the NBA star’s intellectual prowess but first lady Melania Trump had nicer things to say about the L.A. Laker.

On Friday night, Trump tweeted his thoughts on an interview that James did with CNN’s Don Lemon saying “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!”

On Saturday however, Melania Trump’s spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, released a statement saying Melania Trump would consider visiting the facility as part of her “Be Best” initiative aimed at improving the lives of children.

“It looks like LeBron James is working to do good things on behalf of our next generation and just as she always has, the First Lady encourages everyone to have an open dialogue about issues facing children today,” Grisham said.
