Melania Trump shows independence at key moments - 8/5/2018 11:22:54 PM

Although Lemon had tweeted a short response following Trump's tweet - "Who's the real dummy?" There is often little momentum for action in Washington if a President is not on board - one reason why many people doubt the impact of countermeasures against Russia's efforts to taint United States democracy.

That was the silver lining for Lemon, who pointed out, "The overwhelmingly negative response though to his unfair and unkind attack on a good man, LeBron James, shows that American rejects what he is peddling".

Lemon was responding to a tweet from the president that called the CNN anchor "the most dumbest man on TV" and ripped into LeBron James simultaneously.

With James signing a four-year deal with the Los Angeles Lakers last month, speculation about where James, Jr. would play his high school has been rampant. "I like Mike!" Trump tweeted.

Basketball legend Michael Jordon, to whom Trump's tweet presumably referred, also expressed support for James over the weekend. "[LeBron James]. He's doing an incredible job for his community".

But Rodgers said the fact that James hadn't dignified the attack with a response was "absolutely handsome".

"President Trump is trying to divide in a divide-and-conquer strategy", he continued, "and here's how it goes: He divides by race and tries to conquer decency by smearing and besmirching the truth and the people who fight to uphold it".

During the segment, Lemon and LeBron discussed the opening of a new school in OH and the basketball legend passed on an opportunity to criticize the president. "Because clearly Donald Trump won't".

He also said he might consider running for office if someone said to him he was the only person and that Trump would win if he didn't step up.

Melania is the second woman in the President's life to publicly distance herself from his opinions this week alone. A lineup of public figures and social media personalities quickly stepped up to point out that Trump's attack overlooked the fact that James sat down for an interview to discuss his humanitarian work.

"Let me not mince words here", Lemon said.

Because the president is, Lemon said.

James appeared to ignore the chaos surrounding him on Saturday, and focused on his new school.
