LeBron James and Kevin Durant took issue with President Trump in a wide-ranging video released Thursday, with James saying the president doesn’t “give a f— about the people.” That prompted a response from Fox News host Laura Ingraham, who argued that the two NBA stars should stick to sports, calling their comments “ignorant.”
“You’re great players but no one voted for you,” Ingraham said. “Millions elected Trump to be their coach. So keep the political commentary to yourself or, as someone once said, shut up and dribble.”
After her remarks drew criticism Friday, Ingraham issued a statement, saying the “shut up and dribble” phrase was a riff off her own past work and that she has used variations of that phrase for 15 years.
