Lebron James is quite famously no fan of Donald Trump. The NBA legend has made no secret of his feelings about Trump, the far right, and the movement to end police brutality against black Americans that Republicans are so resistant to. For Trump’s part, he’s been unable to simply allow James his own point of view and has, of course, attacked him on Twitter, saying that James isn’t very smart and that he prefers Michael Jordan. Jordan was quick to let Trump know he prefers Lebron James.
Now that Trump has lost yet another election battle, this time with Republican Senators Kelly Loeffler falling to Democrat Rev. Raphael Warner and David Perdue poised to fall to Democrat Jon Ossoff, Lebron is once again throwing shade at the president and his cronies.

The Atlanta Dream is currently co-owned by Kelly Loeffler, the wife of the president of the stock exchange who has faced investigations for using a COVID-19 briefing as a stock tip-off. In a recent photo of the team, the players proudly and firmly stood against her in her run-off election against Rev. Warnock, wearing “Vote Warnoff” shirts as a group. The team was active in raising votes for Warnock after Loeffler bashed the movement to stop police brutality against black Americans.
‘I adamantly oppose the Black Lives Matter political movement, which has advocated for the defunding of police, called for the removal of Jesus from churches and the disruption of the nuclear family structure, harbored anti-Semitic views, and promoted violence and destruction across the country. [Highlighting a] particular political agenda undermines the potential of the sport and sends a message of exclusion.’
Players called for Loeffler to be removed as co-owner of the team. It looks like Lebron James might help make that wish come true.
Twitter was vocal in their support to back James’ efforts. Read some of their comments below:
