Sports & Politics This section is for all political sports talk. Regrettably we feel that in some instances there is no way to eliminate politics from football, basketball, and baseball hobbytalk. Do you pretend nothing is happening with the Warriors, Steelers, A's, etc? This section is for all political sports discussion. However, it is for civil discussion only. No insults aimed at members, political parties, or politicians will be tolerated. There is no warning. If you cannot be civil, you will lose your posting privileges on this site.

Lebron, nobody has ever heard of ingraham before this. She is just another talking head.

She's as ignorant as it comes. She's no more qualified to speak about politics than Lebron is. I'll hand it to the GOP, never thought anything could unite Warrior fans and James, but they've done it.

Pretty clever of her. Lebron would be a fool to take the bait and increase her viewership. Maybe if they donated many many millions to his favorite charities.

I think she would make Lebron look like a fool.

Her net worth is 45 million while she currently makes 15 million a year.
You may disagree with her politics, but she's doing something right.

Let's compare

Laura:

Speechwriter in the Ronald Reagan Administration
Editor of The Prospect Magazine
Clerked for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas
Runs The Laura Ingraham Show, which is heard on 306 stations and XM Satellite Radio.
Host of FNC show, The Ingraham Angle

Lebron:
Bounces a Ball
Puts Ball in Basket
Smacks other mens onna the behinds

Not saying one is better than the other, but I know who I'll listen to when it comes to anything political.

You left out her doing the Nazi salute at the Republican National Convention. That's another fine achievement.

Laughable.

I get all of my political insight from those Duck Dynasty nutjobs appearing on Fox News

IMO all media outlets are difficult to watch right now.

Thanks for your response on this matter. It really sums up the reason why social change is necessary. There is no reason for LeBron to go on this woman's show. He does not need to give her any more time in the spotlight. Essentially, she would try to negate his viewpoint (which was put out on his own program) by trying to belittle him or prove that he's dumb.

He is an athlete who is relatively eloquent and is working to better himself and still learning. He is trying to represent the people with his viewpoint who do not have a voice or a platform as big as his to share it.

She is a hired political gun looking to make her mark. Of course she would be better at the debate - she would attempt to shut him down because he doesn't have the same tools in his toolbelt that she does. It doesn't mean that his opinion is invalid.

What's her position? That if you aren't a political science major that you can't discuss politics?

U can discuss them if your views are the same as hers

I agree with you but how many times have athletes dismissed or talked down to reporters because "they never played the game"?

One on one, half court?
He'd win, and fairly easily, I think.

I think that's dumb, too. Playing the game definitely gives the athletes some advantages, but there are plenty of non-basketball players whose opinions about how to construct a good basketball team that I'd take over, say, Michael Beasley.

LeBron's opinion is that of a 7th grader. The Number 1 job the president is to execute the laws passed by the Legislative Branch, not "care" about the people like he thinks they should. If the president decides to care about one group over another, they're not being equal in their duty to the entire nation.

I am no fan of Ingraham's, I think her shtick is worn the hell out with the fearless leader nonsense that surrounds Trump.

If you're going to wade into politics and pop off with really, really inane commentary, don't be surprised you get a rhetorical smack down from those who are far more experienced.

The soft bigotry of low expectations strike yet again in this thread as well. You know who you are.
