The entire left-wing elite is mobilizing to stop Donald Trump.
That includes entertainment stars, media personalities, and former politicians.
Now LeBron James and Michelle Obama just teamed up for one anti-Trump agenda.
NBA star LeBron James and former First Lady Michelle Obama are teaming up for an early voting initiative to drive up Democrat voter participation.
The two will be organizing events across the country in the run-up to Election Night.
From the Associated Press:
“A voter initiative led by Michelle Obama is partnering with a similar group founded by NBA star LeBron James and other prominent Black athletes and entertainers to sponsor events in major U.S. cities starting next week to generate excitement about voting early for the Nov. 3 election.
Mrs. Obama’s When We All Vote and James’ More Than A Vote are teaming to provide information, transportation, food, music, personal protective equipment and other support at early voting sites around the country Oct. 18-31.”
As usual, the left is leveraging its near monopoly on celebrity culture to lure people into voting for Joe Biden.
Unlike most former presidents and first ladies, Barack and Michelle Obama have been front and center in the 2020 general election.
They both spoke at the Democratic National Convention, and Michelle recently released an attack ad on Trump that didn’t go as well as expected.
James made the decision to become overtly political back in 2016 when he campaigned for Hillary Clinton to no great effect.
In fact, Trump believes James campaigning for Hillary actually hurt her.
During a radio interview with Rush Limbaugh, Trump remarked:
“All I know is when he endorsed Hillary I thought, ‘That’s the greatest endorsement I’ve ever seen’ because when he endorsed Hillary four years ago, she came up to his knee. I said, ‘That is not the best-looking president I’ve ever seen.’”
Since campaigning for Hillary, James has commented on a number of political issues with ill-informed takes.
For example, James said long voting lines in Georgia were “structurally racist,” but it was Democrat state officials that closed down polling stations and voter turnout was still historically high.
James has said that it’s “open season” and black people are being hunted in America, which is a disgusting lie that urges individuals to live in fear.
Based on FBI statistics, a police officer is more likely to be shot and killed by a black suspect than vice versa, and when two Los Angeles cops were ambushed while sitting in their car, James said nothing.
James’s embrace of politics has been devastating for the NBA, which just completed its least-watched Finals since the ratings were regularly recorded.
James also called Trump a “bum,” so it’s clear which candidate his early voting initiative will be benefiting.
James’s campaigning for Clinton in Ohio back in 2016 did not go well for her.
He’s pledged to help Biden and running mate Kamala Harris, so time will tell if his divisive rhetoric backfires again.
