LeBron James had some words for Fox News host Laura Ingraham who recently dedicated an entire segment on her show telling the outspoken athlete to  just “shut up and dribble” after he criticized President Trump.

On Friday, Lebron took to Instagram to make his point clear: He will never shut up and dribble, he is more than that an athlete.

Apparently, Ingraham was upset because of a recent interview Lebron and Kevin Durant gave to the Uninterrupted. In it, Lebron stressed that Trump is out of touch with what many Americans want and who they are.

“The No. 1 job in America, the point of person, is someone who doesn’t understand the people, and really don’t give a f—- about the people.”

The 33-year-old added that as a child, there were three people from whom he sought inspiration: The best athlete, the greatest musician and the president.

“You never thought you could be them, but you can grab inspiration from them,” Lebron said.

“I never felt I could be the president of the United States, but I grabbed inspiration from that. And this time right now, with the president of the United States, it’s at a bad time. And while we cannot change what comes out of that man’s mouth, we can continue to alert the people that watch us, that listen to us, (that) this is not the way.”

This criticism sparked Ingraham to lash out on her show, saying Lebron and other athletes are not qualified to share their opinions about the President or politics in general.

“It’s always unwise to seek political advice from someone who gets paid $100 million a year to bounce a ball. Shut up and dribble,” she said.

Girl bye!

This isn’t the first time that Lebron has been vocal about #45. Last September, he won the Internet when he called Trump a “bum” on Twitter.

    Did she really say that!! Wow, that tells you just how much people respect others’ point of view. That is so very disrespectful. What he said was very thoughtful and insightful, he and Kevin. I loved hearing what they had to say and could either agree or relate with both!! Even if she didn’t agree, her reporting on it should have been more respectful and unbiased.

  3. Well let’s be truthful right here and now – LaBron will continue to dribble a ball, he will continue to earn millions, he will continue to give back to his community – but what he will not do is SHUT Up!!!

    LeBrons voice just like hers has a right to be heard without judgement from anyone. It everyone is truly honest we’ve all been lied to for many years about presidents, politicians, celebrities, past & present. But truth be told # 45 is a disgrace to the office of the President that this country & world has ever experienced. No Tax Returns, lies, groping, sexual encounters, to name a few. If Obama had any of this in his pass he never would have been President. Double standard in every area of life. White people

  5. That’s bytch just need to stfu!! When she said Lebron should shut up and dribble, was telling all blks to shut up bc most of us didn’t vote for the varment . Then she had the audacity the unmedigated gall to ask him to come on her show. I hope he tell her to kick rocks. The bitch is just looking for ratings. If that bitch think we’re going to shut up and not criticize the racist in chief she has another thought coming. We will not shut up. We will be heard, loud and clear. I’m sick of all these white ignorant ppl.
