Basketball Warriors LeBron James and Kevin Durant, two avowed anti-Trumpers with questionable political savvy and limited IQ had something to say.

James said, “The President does not give a f--- about the people.” Lemming Durant had something equally inane to parrot. The use of the pejorative shows not only a lack of verbal skills but also indicates that LaBron and Kevin live in an alternative universe with declining membership.

Just imagine if a white player said same about Obama? At the minimum, he would be called a racist. More likely he would be bounced out of the league.

Heard this double standard song before?

I agree with Laura Ingraham, “Shut up and dribble.” But then again, using the PC double standard, we are deemed “racist” for saying so.
