Following up on his savage “u bum” tweet aimed at Donald Trump earlier today, LeBron James took to UNINTERRUPTED this afternoon to offer more expansive thoughts on our President’s deranged behavior:

I think it’s basically at a point where I’m kind of just a little frustrated, man. Because this guy that we’ve put in charge has tried to divide us once again. Obviously, we all know what happened with Charlottesville and the divide that that caused. And now it’s even hitting more home for me now even more because he’s now using sports as the platform to try to divide us. We all know how much sports brings us together; how much passion it has; how much we love and care, and the friendships and everything that it creates, and for him to use this platform to try to divide us even more, that’s not something I can stand for, and it’s not something I can be quiet about. You look at him kind of asking the NFL owners to get rid of players off the field because they’re exercising their rights, and that’s not right. And then, when I wake up, I see that a colleague of mine has been uninvited of something that he said that he didn’t even want to go to in the first place—to the White House—that’s just something that I can’t stand for. We’ve got Jemele HIll and Colin Kaepernick and all these people are speaking up, and it’s for the greater cause. It’s for us to all come together, it’s not about a division, it’s not about dividing. We as American people need to actually just come together even more stronger, man, because this is a very critical time, and me being in the position I am I had to voice this to y’all.
