Another Hidden Message? Melania Trump Supports Lebron James As He Feuds With Her Husband
Melania Trump is full of surprises. First, she reportedly watched CNN while flying with her CNN-hating husband, Donald Trump. And now she’s siding with his opponent in a Twitter fight.
Trump at war
Trump’s troubles with Lebron James began after the basketball star called attention to the president’s "deliberate moves to sow division in America".
He was speaking to CNN’s Don Lemon about his new project, a school in Akron, Ohio, when the subject of the president came up.
Melania praises Lebron James
In true fashion, Trump wasted no time in exacting his pound of flesh. He insulted both Lebron James and Lemon.
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!

But, while CNN trolled Melania with comments that she had once again risked her husband’s wrath and watched them, the First Lady sent a statement to the network through her spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham.
She praised James’ charity work.
Lebron James 1 – Trump 0
"The First Lady encourages everyone to have an open dialogue about issues facing children today", Grisham said, nothing that her boss was open to visiting James’ ‘I Promise School project’ in the future.
