LeBron James adds Showtime documentary to TV portfolio

In a withering monologue on "CNN Tonight", Lemon slammed the president's "nasty, hateful swipe" on Twitter that bashed the intelligence of both the CNN host and basketball star and philanthropist LeBron James.

Of course, Trump and James have been feuding for a long time, and in a recent CNN interview, James sat down with Lemon to talk about why he called the president a "bum" and his take on the political climate in 2018.

Lemon began by going through his recent interview with James - which went beyond the basketball star's political views and placed great focus on how he's building a public school for at-risk children.

During the segment, Lemon and LeBron discussed the opening of a new school in OH and the basketball legend passed on an opportunity to criticize the president.

"Look, there might be a cautionary lesson in LeBron for kids", she continued.

Navarro noted that Trump's rhetoric criticizing people who are African-American has a long history, pointing to his "s**thole countries" remarks and his attacks on National Football League players kneeling to protest police violence against others who are African-American.

The new show is scheduled to premier in October, the same month James will make his debut with the Los Angeles Lakers, Variety reports. The CNN host noted that Trump calls anthem-kneelers protesting racial injustice "sons of bitches", yet he referred to the white supremacists of Charlottesville as "very fine people".

USA first lady Melania Trump also appeared to take exception with her husband's attack on James.

The spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a question on whether the first lady planned to visit the I Promise school.
