Just because President Donald Trump hasn’t left the White House today, that doesn’t mean he hasn’t been busy, made an impact on the news cycle or gotten the attention of one of the United States’ enemies. He unloaded on both Iran and LeBron James today and made it very clear to both how he feels.
The president’s appearance with Rush Limbaugh was a two-hour session billed as an “unprecedented radio rally.” Unprecedented is an understatement, as Trump dropped an F-bomb when he was telling listeners about the consequences Iran would face if its leaders “f—k around” with the United States.
“If you f—k around with us, if you do something bad to us, we are gonna do things to you that have never been done before,” the president said on the show. The next step will be to see if Limbaugh finds himself in trouble for not having a delay which would have allowed technical staff to bleep out the profanity. No word yet if the FCC is planning on any action.

The president wasn’t done. When discussing the NBA’s historically low ratings for the Finals this season, Trump said the league can pin the blame on their aggressive promotion of Black Lives Matter, as the NBA has included the phrase on the actual courts and players’ jerseys.
“The NBA has become so political that nobody cares about it anymore,” Trump said. “I don’t even know who’s playing in the Finals.”
The conversation turned to the fact that LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers are playing the Miami Heat. Trump took aim at the Lakers star, who has been extremely critical of Trump on Twitter. “LeBron is a spokesman for the democratic party and a very nasty spokesman,” Trump said. “Because, again, I’ve done so much for the black community and people don’t wanna see that and he’s a great basketball player but people don’t wanna see a guy that way. They don’t want to see that. We have enough difficulty during the week, you don’t wanna sit down watching a basketball game and then watch somebody that hates your guts, okay, He’s a hater.”
