LeBron James poisoned American society over the past five years.
He’s inserted himself into political matters in moronic ways that have only worsened division.
And James’s attack on Kyle Rittenhouse just blew up in his face.
The trial of Kyle Rittenhouse is nearly over, and the prosecution has completely beclowned itself.
Rittenhouse will likely be acquitted unless there is a shocking miscarriage of justice.
Even MSNBC’s Chris Hayes admits an acquittal is likely.
But the so-called mainstream media and left-wing celebrities are laying the groundwork for more riots and street violence.
They are not telling the truth about the trial, which will only cause rancor if Rittenhouse is “unexpectedly” found not guilty.
And NBA star LeBron James is one of the public figures making the saga worse with his horrible, uninformed takes.
James recently mocked Rittenhouse crying on the stand when he was recounting the horrors of what happened in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
What tears????? I didn’t see one. Man knock it off! That boy ate some lemon heads before walking into court. 🤣🤣🤣 https://t.co/LKwYssIUmD

But Dave Hancock, Rittenhouse’s spokesman, quickly called out James for his irresponsible commentary.
Speaking with Fox News about Rittenhouse’s testimony on the stand, Hancock said:
“Absolutely it was not [insincere]…He is an empathetic and caring young man…And to LeBron, I would just say, he should be paying more attention to the Lakers…But, if he would like to have a sit-down at some point in time, I’m sure him and Kyle can talk about how we can change and fix the system that allows prosecutors to do what they’re doing to Kyle right now…It’s abhorrent.”
Others were quick to point out on Twitter that James had cried before in circumstances far less dire than a murder trial.
He’s crying because he had to shoot someone and take a life in self defense.
You cried because you got a cramp. https://t.co/aHC2w5PXym pic.twitter.com/FwWajArsdW

This isn’t even close to the first time James has made an explosive situation worse.
On the heels of the Derek Chauvin trial, James tweeted “you’re next” about a police officer who saved a black teenage girl from being stabbed.
James has been responsible for dangerous anti-police rhetoric despite admitting in 2015 he’d never had any bad interactions with cops.
At the end of the day, James is a phony who’s trying to come off as authentic by pandering to the “woke” Twitter crowd.
