Trump: LeBron Should ‘Play for His Women’s Basketball Team, Become a Woman’
'I don’t like LeBron James'
Donald Trump has thrown another question to whether LeBron James will remain with the Lakers, should the player remain a man?
The 45th president told supporters of his plan should he become a women’s basketball coach.
His plan - convince LeBron James to transition to a woman.
After Trump told the audience he could be the “greatest women’s basketball coach in history,” he revealed the strategy for his women’s superteam.
“I don’t like LeBron James," Trump said.
"I like Michael Jordan much better."
"I'd be the greatest women's basketball coach in history. I don't like LeBron James, I like Michael Jordan much better. But, I'd go up to LeBron James...I'd say, 'LeBron, did you ever have any desire to be a woman? Because what I'd love you to do is star on my team." pic.twitter.com/xU5lt6hPeH— CSPAN (@cspan) July 26, 2022
"But I’d go up to LeBron James [and] I’d say, ‘LeBron, did you ever have any desire to be a woman?’"
"Because what I’d love you to do is star on my team that I’m building.”
After telling the crowd how he would pitch LeBron by talking about all the non-stop winning that would ensue if he transitioned to a female and joined his team.
Trump segued to a serious point about the need for open discussion about the problem of males infiltrating women’s sports by identifying as female.
Trump is starch defender of women’s sports.
Citing the highly-publicized example of University of Pennsylvania transgender swimmer Lia Thomas who went on to dominate women’s swimming after three unremarkable years competing as the man that he is, Trump vowed to ban trans athletes from women’s competition if reelected.
“We will ban men from participating in women’s sports,” Trump told a crowd during a rally in Conroe, Texas, in January.
On Tuesday, Lia Thomas was denied the NCAA’s “Woman of the Year” award.
One would like to believe it’s because he’s not a woman, though that wasn’t explicitly stated as the reason.
