LeBron James‘ sheer existence makes Donald Trump look like a small, small man.
We learned that overnight, as Trump tweeted stupid and insensitive remarks about James and CNN host Don Lemon just as LBJ was showing the news outlet around the incredible new public school he founded.

And we’re increasingly learning that today, too, as we see the wave after wave of support coming in for LeBron… with no one — not even Michael Jordan, who Trump called out by name — coming to support the Cheeto-In-Chief in the midst of his most ridiculous tantrum yet.
It all really started this morning with Jordan, who released a statement essentially telling Trump to go fuck himself (below):
Charlotte Hornets owner Michael Jordan’s official statement, via spokesperson, in wake of Donald Trump tweet referencing him and LeBron James: “I support LJ. He’s doing an amazing job for his community.”

As opposed to Trump, who is literally whining his face off about cable TV specials every night.

But Jordan’s support of LeBron was far from the only support the NBA superstar received — look at ALL THESE PEOPLE siding with LeBron over The Donald, and it’s really not even a hard choice (below):
I’d much rather live in a world reflecting the values, philanthropy, and yes intelligence of LeBron James and Don Lemon’s intelligent commitment to truth and journalism than the divisive peevishness, lies, and narrow self-interest displayed by the President of the United States.

Well, the question “what would make me a LeBron James fan?” has been answered.

If I didn’t love LeBron James I wouldn’t have named the King James Bible after him.

LeBron James is helping young people get an education. You are an old delusional racist who puts our country at risk.

First, Donald Trump called NFL players “sons of bitches” and now he is insulting the intelligence of Lebron James. He is attacking black athletes to fan the flames of bigotry in his base and to distract from his conspiracy with Russia. He is also doing it because he is a racist.

LeBron James vs Donald Trump.
One puts kids in schools. The other puts them in cages. Tell me who you support.
— Brandon Horan (@brandon_r_horan) August 4, 2018
Lebron James invested over $100 million to send students to a university.
Donald Trump had to pay $25 million for ripping off university students.
Lebron puts kids in school.
Trump puts them in cages.

LeBron James just opened a public school for at-risk kids, while the Trump Administration continues to keep migrant children separated from their families. That’s all you need to know.

Donald Trump is a sexual assailant and white supremacist who colluded with a foreign government to steal an election.
LeBron James works with numerous orgs, including his own, to ensure countless kids are empowered to become healthy adults.
Glad we had this talk.

Seething on Twitter against Don Lemon and Lebron James is not normal or sane.
Doing it at midnight is even less normal and sane.
How the hell is Donald Trump not committed to the loony bin?#PresidentLoco

And here, just for balance, is one incredibly stupid person saying one incredibly, incredibly stupid thing (below):
LeBron James recently called President Trump a ‘bum’.
Don Lemon slaughters Trump every night in a very personal way.
I like & respect both men, and they’re perfectly entitled to their opinion, but is it entirely unreasonable that Trump would have a pop back at them?

Go home, Piers.
But besides Mr. Morgan, what do y’all think of THAT?!
