Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James weighed in on Saturday about the ongoing violence taking place in Charlottesville, Va., taking a shot at President Donald Trump and expressing his sadness in the process.
James actively campaigned for Trump's opponent in last year's presidential election, Hillary Clinton, and was an avid supporter of Trump's predecessor, Barack Obama.
A small contingent of professional leftist counter-protesters eagerly joined the battle, matching the racists blow for blow.
Democratic minority leader and congresswoman from California Nancy Pelosi tweeted directly at the president writing, "Repeat after me, @realDonaldTrump: white supremacy is an affront to American values". Later in the day, two other people were killed following a helicopter crash that was reportedly connected to the situation. He's played with legendary quarterback Peyton Manning and Tennessee senator Bob Corker.
Cory Gardner, a Republican senator from Colorado, tweeted: "Mr. President - we must call evil by its name". That means Trump could be playing golf, or he could be hitting golf balls on the range, or he could be twiddling his thumbs.
Earlier Saturday, Trump denounced the violence on Twitter. The group played a full 18.
"We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence, on many sides".
