LeBron James Gets Torched By GOP Sen. Kennedy – ‘He Can Go From Zero To Screw Everyone Real Fast’

The NBA star LeBron James has found himself in hot water this week after he tweeted and then deleted a post saying “YOU’RE NEXT” alongside a photo of the officer involved in the Ma’Khia Bryant shooting in Columbus, Ohio.

On Thursday, Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) slammed James for this, saying that the Los Angeles Lakers star has “has more zeal than wisdom” and has a tendency to “go from zero to screw everyone pretty fast.”

Kennedy Blasts James

“First, I think Mr. James did the right thing by pulling down the tweet,” Kennedy told host Harris Faulkner. “Look, Harris, I admire his passion. He is clearly a leader for many Americans for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is his extraordinary physical skills. I think sometimes Mr. James has more zeal than wisdom. He doesn’t wait on the facts.”

“I mean, he can go from zero to screw everyone pretty fast, and I wish I was as sure of anything as Mr. James sometimes seems to be sure of everything,” he added. “I don’t want to be overly critical, but on a situation like this, you have to get the facts. And what happened in Columbus was horrible. I mean, a cop had to choose between two lives in a split second.”

Kennedy Doubles Down

“President Biden, when he was running, said, ‘Well, the cop ought to shoot the gun or the knife out of their hands.’ I mean, this isn’t ‘Silverado’ or ‘Deadwood,’ you know,” Kennedy concluded.
“This isn’t the movies. Cops sometimes have to make quick decisions, and we have to wait for the facts and the investigation.”

Kennedy went on to call on Americans to “disabuse” the idea that every cop, who he noted “many of whom are racial minorities,” looking to hurt citizens.

“I don’t think most cops are racist,” he continued. “Some probably are, and we need to weed them out, but if you hate cops just because they’re cops, you are being unfair and unrealistic.”
