There's an old saying that goes, "It's better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt."
Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James removed all doubt when he spent most of his Media Day Q&A session criticizing President Trump and Ohioans who voted for him.
LeBron basically called Ohio voters "uneducated" for casting their votes for Donald Trump instead of Hillary Clinton.
“At the end of the day, I don’t think a lot of people was educated,” he said.
“And I think that’s one of the biggest problems that we have. When it becomes vote time, people are just not educated on either the individual or what’s going on in the state of the world right now. I don’t think a lot of people are educated and they make choices and say things that are uneducated.
“And am I saying that the people of Ohio wasn’t educated? Am I saying that some of the other states that voted for him was uneducated? They could have been or they could not have been. But that doesn’t mean it was the right choice.”
The irony is that LeBron James is the very antithesis of educated. A man who lacks the fundamentals of basic English and good grammar is not sexy.
Liberals would probably argue that LeBron is the product of a broken educational system that de-emphasizes proper grammar usage, because good grammar is considered a tool of racism and oppression.
But in light of LeBron's embarrassing lack of education, he should probably stick to what he knows, since public speaking is not his strong point.
In related NBA news, LeBron's former Miami Heat teammate, Dwyane Wade, will sign a 1-year deal with the Cavaliers for $2.1 million.
