Basketball superstar LeBron James just mocked President Trump with his most unrelenting condemnation yet, quoting a recent Eminem freestyle which asserts that “racism is the only thing he’s fantastic for.”

James typically keeps his political opinions quiet, but he made his opinion of Trump known last month to defend fellow NBA star Stephen Curry from one of Trump’s Twitter tirades.
Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team.Stephen Curry is hesitating,therefore invitation is withdrawn!

U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going! So therefore ain't no invite. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!

Eminem’s anti-Trump freestyle debuted during the BET Hip Hop Awards, and covered everything from a condemnation of Trump’s racism to a defense of Colin Kaepernick’s protest. James also retweeted a message from Kaepernick, which says “I appreciate you, Eminem.”
Some of the freestyle can be viewed below.
