Donald Trump called called Don Lemon dumb!
And he implied that LeBron James isn’t smart!
Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!

From the way the media was acting yesterday (and still today), you’d think Donald Trump tweeted, “Oh man it’s kind of sick how much joy I get out of being cruel to old white men.”
Actually, no. If Donald Trump did that, the New York Times would be tripping all over itself to give him a job.
Of course the truth is, Don Lemon is kind of dumb. The dumbest on the television might be a bit of a stretch. So long as Joe Scarborough and Brian Stelter are on television, I’d say he’s a distant third. But he is rather dumb.
And let’s be honest. LeBron James isn’t exactly the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree.
But they’re not dumb because they’re black. They’re just not very bright.
Who can forget LeBron James’ “whip-smart” assessment of the 2016 election?
”At the end of the day, I don’t think a lot of people was educated. And I think that’s one of the biggest problems that we have. When it becomes vote time, people are just not educated on either the individual or what’s going on in the state of the world right now.”
“I don’t think a lot of people was educated,” says the media’s latest philosopher king.
The news media and celebrities want you to believe that Trump only refers to black people as dumb or low IQ.
Trump called Don Lemon, LeBron James and Maxine Waters, "dumb". One is from the South. One is from Cleveland. One is from LA. One is in the NBA. One is on TV. One is in Congress. Hmmmm… I wonder what they could possibly have in common? Oh, wait…🖐🏾

Our not very bright Vice President, Joe Biden, just stated that I wanted to "carpet bomb" the enemy. Sorry Joe, that was Ted Cruz!

The last thing our country needs is another BUSH! Dumb as a rock!

Crazy Joe Scarborough and dumb as a rock Mika are not bad people, but their low rated show is dominated by their NBC bosses. Too bad!

Is everybody believing what is going on. James Comey can’t define what a leak is. He illegally leaked CLASSIFIED INFORMATION but doesn’t understand what he did or how serious it is. He lied all over the place to cover it up. He’s either very sick or very dumb. Remember sailor!

Word is that crying @GlennBeck left the GOP and doesn't have the right to vote in the Republican primary. Dumb as a rock.

Robert De Niro, a very Low IQ individual, has received too many shots to the head by real boxers in movies. I watched him last night and truly believe he may be “punch-drunk.” I guess he doesn’t…

Highly untalented Wash Post blogger, Jennifer Rubin, a real dummy, never writes fairly about me. Why does Wash Post have low IQ people?

I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don't watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came..

Oh. I guess Ana forgot about those.
But no matter.
We all know why they’re kicking up a fuss over President Trump calling Don Lemon dumb and pointing out that LeBron isn’t that smart.
There are two reasons.
Well, three if you count the “We set our hair on fire over every Trump tweet.”
But let’s leave that one out of the mix.
Here are the two reasons.
One is selfish.
And one is calculating.
First the selfish one.
As Ann Coulter pointed out in her book Slander:
It is important for liberals to demean the people they oppose to reinforce their sense of class superiority. Anyone can associate himself with the elite by adopting the left’s snooty superiority and laughing at Republicans for being dumb hicks.
And, more importantly:
If liberals were prevented from ever again calling Republicans dumb, they would be robbed of half their arguments. To be sure, they would still have “racist,” “fascist,” “homophobe,” “ugly,” and a few other highly nuanced arguments in the quiver. But the loss of “dumb” would nearly cripple them.
The Left believes they and they alone have the right to wield the “he’s stupid” insult.
Ann’s book was written over fifteen years ago. But that holds true still today.
They say Trump is stupid.
They mock his supporters for being gap-toothed dummies and “garbage people.”
Dumb, they believe, is their proprietary insult.
Then along comes Donald Trump who uses the same weapons against the Left that they’ve deployed against Republicans for decades.
And they’re pissed.
As so many said during the 2016 campaign, Americans love the fact that Donald Trump hits back.
Unlike that feckless fool George W. Bush who let the media, Hollywood and every sanctimonious Leftist tear him apart like hyenas without even defending himself, President Trump punches back. And because he spent decades surrounded by these people, he knows exactly how to get under their skin.
But the more important reason why they’re creating such a stink over DumbGate is far more calculating.
And it’s this:
#ICYMI: From yesterday:
Today’s @realDonaldTrump approval ratings among black voters: 29%
— Rasmussen Reports (@Rasmussen_Poll) August 3, 2018
That’s a problem you guys.
Black unemployment is at record lows. Support for the President among black voters has nearly doubled in a year.
And you know what that means.
Time to deploy another round of “Trump’s a big-old racist!”
They tried it when he referred to Maxine Waters as Low IQ.
But since Maxine is such a repulsive person it didn’t get the traction they were hoping for.
So, despite the fact that it was Don Lemon Trump called dumb, they decide to set their hair on fire over Trump implying that LeBron isn’t smart.
But LeBron isn’t smart. That’s the point.
They certainly can’t rend garments and gnash teeth over Don Lemon. Who cares about him?
But LeBron James, they figure, is a “hero” and a “role model to young people.” So they land on that tweet with both feet and scream like wounded poodles hoping that blacks across America will take a moment from their newly secured jobs to share their outrage.
Do you have an idea what will happen to the Democrat Party if 29% of black voters bail on them?
This isn’t about defending the intelligence of a verifiably not smart guy.
This is about saving the Democrat Party from electoral extinction.
These guys don’t give a rat’s butt about LeBron James and his supposed – but heretofore elusive – brilliance.
As is always the case, the Left is using a black man for their own political advantage.
So they twist themselves into pretzels to turn a multi-millionaire sports star into a poor victim of a racist President.
Sure, it’s a stretch.
But here’s the thing. The Left is assuming that black people are dumb enough to fall for it.
Which, stop and marvel at that irony.
Racist —> Don Lemon is dumb
Totally not racist —> We can't have Voter ID Laws because black people don't know how to get a photo ID.
