Responding to a Friday night tweet from President Donald Trump, who attacked both NBA star LeBron James and CNN host Don Lemon by questioning both black men’s intelligence, GOP consultant Rick Wilson called out the president as a racist.
Late Friday evening, Trump tweeted: “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!”
Wilson, a harsh critic of Trump, immediately responded, “Racist sh*tbird says what?”
The GOP consultant continued to pile on Trump on Saturday monrning for his LeBron slur, snapping at him Twitter and re-tweeting some choice comments about the president attacking a black athlete he had formerly praised.

As I said on @GMA today, @realDonaldTrump taking on @KingJames is like Ollie, the equipment manager from the movie Hoosiers, challenging Lebron to one-on-one. It isn’t going to turn out well for the President.

The president of the United States should shut up and dribble. https://t.co/gTNo80decpADVERTISEMENT
