Limbaugh on LeBron James: Michael Jordan knew that Republicans buy sneakers too

On his nationally syndicated radio show, host Rush Limbaugh said that while Michael Jordan was a dyed-in-the-wool Democrat, at least he knew that Republicans buy sneakers too.

Discussing Lebron James‘ Monday interview with CNN host Don Lemon on his show Tuesday, Limbaugh stated,”LeBron James says that President Trump is using sports to divide the nation. Really? LeBron James! At least Michael Jordan knew that Republicans buy sneakers too. LeBron James says that President Trump is using sports to divide the nation. Really? LeBron James! At least Michael Jordan knew that Republicans buy sneakers too.”

“Who started this business? Who decided to start taking a knee and disrespecting the national anthem? That would be a guy named Colin Kaepernick, right? And then who decided to join him? A bunch of other athletes, some buddies on the San Francisco 49ers and some other NFL teams. I don’t care how you slice it,” added Limbaugh.

Limbaugh’s comments came as Lebron James did an interview on CNN with host Don Lemon where James said that President Trump is using sports to divide the nation. Limbaugh was quick to point out that Trump never took a knee protesting the national anthem.

Below is a transcript of Rush Limbaugh’s on his show Tuesday:

“Then when I am driving in — I didn’t tell you this — I hear that LeBron James (LeBron James!) did an interview on CNN. You know the noted political expert, LeBron James? LeBron James says that President Trump is using sports to divide the nation. Really? LeBron James! At least Michael Jordan knew that Republicans buy sneakers too.

“LeBron James says that President Trump is using sports to divide the nation. Really? LeBron James! At least Michael Jordan knew that Republicans buy sneakers too. But LeBron James… Look, I know we have freedom of speech; anybody can say what they want. But the man has no political education whatsoever. But there he was on CNN. He was on there with Don Lemon. Of course, he’s serving the exact purpose that CNN wants. Here’s some famous athlete railing against Trump, and it’s supposed to bring all the other dead-brain dolts that watch that network right along into the fold, that Trump is an idiot, that Trump’s dividing the nation with racism.

“May I ask, “Who started this?

“Who started this business? Who decided to start taking a knee and disrespecting the national anthem? That would be a guy named Colin Kaepernick, right? And then who decided to join him? A bunch of other athletes, some buddies on the San Francisco 49ers and some other NFL teams. I don’t care how you slice it. When the national anthem is being played and the flag is being hoisted and you do anything that looks like you’re protesting that, it’s gonna be properly understood as you are protesting America. You’re protesting the flag and people who protect it such as the U.S. military.”
