Michael Jordan, Melania Trump, push back after Trump attacks LeBron James, Don Lemon

It all started on a quiet Friday night, when CNN re-aired Don Lemon’s interview with LeBron James.

The interview focused on James’ contributions to his hometown of Akron, Ohio, including a new public school for at-risk third- and fourth-graders there. But the two men also discussed politics. James told Lemon that President Donald Trump has used athletics and athletes to divide the country.
“I can’t sit back and say nothing,” James said.
The President was watching. Shortly before midnight, he 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!” the President added in what appeared to be a reference to the ongoing debate on who’s the greatest NBA player of all time, James or Jordan.
Now Lemon and Jordan have both responded, while James has shrugged off the insult. And most curious of all, first lady Melania Trump weighed in, siding with James over her husband.
It seems Trump’s late-night tweet has led to another disagreement between the President and his wife.
How? Well, in their responses to the President’s tweet, CNN and Lemon both invoked the first lady’s #BeBest initiative, which aims to support kindness and respect.
“Who’s the real dummy? A man who puts kids in classrooms or one who puts kids in cages? #BeBest,” Lemon tweeted Saturday morning.
The first lady’s office was asked by news organizations for comment. Instead of ignoring the requests or mirroring the President’s attack against the NBA star, the first lady’s spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, praised James and his charitable work in a statement provided to CNN.
“It looks like LeBron James is working to do good things on behalf of our next generation and just as she always has, the First Lady encourages everyone to have an open dialogue about issues facing children today,” Grisham said. “As you know, Mrs. Trump has traveled the country and world talking to children about their well-being, healthy living, and the importance of responsible online behavior with her Be Best initiative.”
Grisham added that the first lady would be open to visiting James’ “I Promise” school.

Scandal Tainted Politicos Join Dionne Reeder in a Bid to Oust Elissa Silverman

Talk to Dionne Reeder’s supporters, and they will insist that Elissa Silverman is the most divisive politician in the city.

At-large Councilmember Silverman’s progressive causes, namely the paid family leave law and her opposition to overturning Initiative 77, have made her the top ally of lefty groups in the city, and also turned her into the bane of the District’s business and political establishment. Yet many politicos wonder why Mayor Muriel Bowser is so brazenly working to unseat Silverman in November, given the mayor’s failure to elect allies in the 2016 cycle.

For now, the mayor’s allies are talking big. “I haven’t seen this much distaste for an incumbent since Adrian Fenty in 2010,” claims Joshua Lopez, a longtime Green Team booster.
