During Game 3, LeBron dissed a fan of his who was wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat by throwing his towel over the guy who was hoping to catch it.
Normally LeBron tosses his towel into the crowd as a souvenir for game-goers. He trolled the Cavs fan in a MAGA hat by tossing it over him. In the viral clip it also appears that he faked as if he was going to throw the towel to the man in the red hat. He puts his hands up to catch it but James tosses it way past him.
This should come as no surprise with the way LeBron James has "resisted" against President Trump and ripped Trump supporters. Back in September he labeled them as ignorant. "I don't think a lot of people was educated," LeBron said.
Whether LeBron did this on purpose or not, the Left is celebrating this move by their hero.
The far-left site "The Root" celebrated LeBron giving the fan the shaft as a power move by a black man and rejecting "white nationalism." Seriously.
"An old white man wearing the new Ku Klux Klan hood of 2018, aka a red 'Make America Great Again' hat, held his hand to ask James for his sweat-soaked towel. James looked at the man and then threw the towel beyond his reach. ... James will never be here for your white nationalist, tiki-torch-wielding, white supremacy bullshit."
Of course they weren't the only Trump critics. Many surfaced on Twitter as well.

I know zilch about basketball or Lebron James but I can tell you which man I think is a king and it sure isn’t the man in the red hat.

The "tolerant left" is back at it.
