LeBron James wants to join the circus otherwise known as Democratic presidential politics and that is not good for the left.
According to Fox Sports reporter Skip Bayless, James is considering a run for the highest office in the land.
No doubts his ego allows him to think he could do the job but could you imagine James trying to be president?
It would be a disaster but the desperate Dems may clamor for James after watching the debacle this year.
Look, the election will be close but beating an incumbent with this economy is a fool’s errand.
From The Daily Wire:
“I’m close with a guy who is very close to LeBron,” Bayless said during an episode of Fox Sports’ “Undisputed,” reported NESN. “And this guy spent a lot of time with LeBron over All-Star weekend in Chicago.”
“And, as soon as Shannon [Sharpe] and I did this topic on Friday, this guy that I’m close to immediately texted me and he said, ‘No no no no, [James] really considering this, and he was way — and it’s got a lot of ‘Y’s’ on the end of ‘way’ — way before [DeMarcus Cousins] came out with it.”
Bayless added: “And, the guy I know said, ‘It’s a plan of his but not yet a goal.’ But he emphasized he’s really — all caps — considering running for president of the United States.”
As noted by NESN earlier in the week, Cousins said during a recent appearance on the “All The Smoke” podcast that he frequently encourages James to run for POTUS.
“I told him the other day … ‘Bro, you need to run for president!’” Cousins said Wednesday on the podcast. “If there’s an NBA player (to become president, it’s) LeBron James.”
“I’m definitely (voting for him),” the basketball player continued. “And he’s going to do it the right way. I mean, obviously that’s just me and my opinion. He probably feels totally different. But I think he can do it. He has that type of impact, influence, and just being a genuine person.”
