President Trump has continued his racist attacks against prominent black journalists, athletes and politicians. Early Saturday morning, he insulted NBA superstar LeBron James and CNN host Don Lemon, tweeting, “Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do.” Trump also insulted California Democratic Congressmember Maxine Waters during a campaign rally in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, late last week, claiming Waters has a “Very low IQ.” In response to Trump’s comments about LeBron James, Melania Trump said through her spokesperson, “It looks like LeBron James is working to do good things on behalf of our next generation.”
