LeBron James : ' I mean too much to society,'

Deadline Hollywood reports:
LeBron James spoke after the afternoon NBA all-star game sessions, vowing that he will continue to “talk about what’s really important.”

James made his first comments following Fox News host Laura Ingraham’s “shut up and dribble” comments last week, in which she took James and fellow hoopster Kevin Durant to task for criticizing President Donald Trump. James initially made a social media post as a retort, leaving others to comment on his behalf.

Saturday was a different story. “I will not just shut up and dribble,” James said after All-Star practice. “So, thank you, whatever her name is. … I get to sit up here and talk about what’s really important and how I can help change kids. “It lets me know that everything I’ve been saying is correct for her to have that type of reaction. But we will definitely not shut up and dribble. I will definitely not do that. I mean too much to society, I mean too much to the youth, I mean too much to so many kids that feel like they don’t have a way out and they need someone to help lead them out of the situation they’re in.”
Noted academic scholar LeBron James has a high opinion of himself.

Donald Trump Calls Adam Schiff a "leakin' monster"

Liberals Fear New Tax Law Not a Negative For Republicans

Crain's New York Business reports:
President Donald Trump’s approval rating has jumped from 36% in December to 41% earlier this month, according to a tracker on the data journalism site that combines all the polls on the subject. The generic congressional ballot, which asks likely voters whether they prefer Democrats or Republicans in the upcoming midterms, puts the Democratic lead at six or seven points, down from double digits at the end of last year. The growing realization that Democrats’ rhetoric about the tax bill being an assault on the middle class is not the whole truth must be a factor.

Even Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s standing in the polls dropped sharply, though insiders are divided on how much that is attributable to his hopelessly exaggerated attacks on the tax bill. (There is also a corruption trial underway involving a former top aide to the governor.)

Republicans clearly understand this, and the smartest ones are determined to feature the bill in their campaigns, noted a very interesting New York Times story this month, even in blue states like ours. The president’s tweets are a big problem for the GOP, but the polls show that while Americans are skeptical that the tax reform will benefit them, they are open to being convinced. Whoever wins that argument may win the 2018 elections.
Imagine that.
