Fox News Anchor Blasts LeBron James, Tells Him to ‘Shut Up and Dribble’

LeBron James Fox News Laura Ingraham

Can sports and politics mix? Not if you ask Fox News anchor Laura Ingraham. Ingraham was overly critical of LeBron James on live TV for his contemptuous comments of President Donald Trump.

Ingraham’s comments not only criticized James for his opinion on the president, she went on to mock him for his education, or lack thereof.

What Ingraham failed to realize is that James has always been vocal about his political beliefs before Trump came into power. He speaks out against racism and inequality similar to what other sports icons have done in the past.

The Boston Celtics’ Bill Russell, the UCLA Bruins’ Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (then known as Lew Alcindor), heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali, and the Cleveland Browns’ Jim Brown were among those who voiced their opinions about the civil rights movement.

Her word of advice to James?

“Shut up and dribble,” she said.

Rather than receiving support for her comments, it appears that she has received more disdain than she was probably expecting. Or maybe this was the response she was hoping for after all.
