IT BEGINS: Dan Rather Calls Trump "Racist" For Simply Responding To LeBron James

It didn’t take long for liberals to play the race card after President Trump dared to criticize LeBron James and CNN’s Don Lemon who interviewed the NBA superstar last week when he accused Trump of using sports to divide America.

On Friday, Trump dropped a Twiter anvil on the Los Angeles Laker loudmouth’s head and then for good measure, took a poke at the race-obsessed Lemon who he mocked as the “dumbest man on television” which is hard to argue with.

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!

He also poked James in the eye by bringing up Michael Jordan who has six rings and always carried himself with class, unlike the crude, inarticulate boob who fancies himself as a civil rights figure.

The walking corpse of what used to be CBS’s celebrity anchorman was one of the first to attack Trump as 86-year-old Dan Rather took to his own Twitter account to accuse the president of being a racist which in leftist lexicon happens to be anyone who criticizes a black politician or celebrity for making moronic statements.

We saw this tactic utilized with great success against conservatives who disagreed with Barack Obama’s failed policies and if anything, it has become overused to the point of being a joke but it’s still the bread and butter of the political left.

This is apparently what the President of the United States feels the need to share with the world at what should be long past his bedtime? It's a disgrace. It's racist. And it's the product of petty but dangerous hatreds. I repeat this is the PRESIDENT??!?

Via The Hill, “Dan Rather blasts Trump for ‘racist’ criticism of LeBron James, Don Lemon”:

Veteran journalist Dan Rather tore into President Trump for his late-night tweet attacking NBA star LeBron James and CNN host Don Lemon.

In a tweet sent shortly after the president’s, the longtime CBS News anchor called Trump’s comments “racist” and “dangerous.”

“This is apparently what the President of the United States feels the need to share with the world at what should be long past his bedtime?” Rather tweeted. “It’s a disgrace. It’s racist. And it’s the product of petty but dangerous hatreds. I repeat this is the PRESIDENT??!?”

According to Democrats like Mr. Rather, President Trump does not have a right to free speech which is exactly what he was expressing when he called out King James and dumb Don Lemon.

It’s hard to imagine that at one time that this guy was seriously referred to as a respectable newsman. Rather’s long career went up in flames after his sloppy reporting on documents critical of former President George W. Bush’s Air National Guard service embarrassed his network back in 2004.

He was clearly abusing his position in the media to discredit Bush and swing the presidential election to Democrat John Kerry but a failure to do his due diligence led to CBS having to retract Rather’s big scoop much to the dismay of his liberal allies.

Bush went on to win reelection and the disgraced Rather was soon out at CBS before retreating into exile to lick his wounds.  However, his name is still solid gold to the left and other low-information suckers and he has since emerged as a floater who appears regularly on the anti-Trump hatefests that pass for cable news.

It was only a week ago when he appeared with Lemon to accuse Trump of using “Orwellian” language which is an appropriate term for those invoking race to stymie criticism of James. Just like Dan Rather just did with his tweet.

It’s hard to tell which one is more pathetic, Rather or Watergate ghoul Carl Bernstein, another crazy old fool who has discovered the fountain of youth in Trump Derangement Syndrome.
