Clinton supporter LeBron James reacts to outcome of election
LeBron James, who made his political loyalties quite clear, reacted to the outcome of the presidential election. As a staunch supporter of Hillary Clinton, the Cleveland Cavaliers superstar expressed disappointment in Donald Trump winning the election but also provided encouraging words and a dose of optimism.
James took to Instagram Wednesday morning to express his thoughts on what without a doubt was one of the bitterest, most divisive and contentious presidential elections ever.
The post contains no video but instead features the song, “Alright,” by Kendrick Lamar, which contains profanity.
As I woke up today looking and searching for answers on what has happened this song hit it right on the head! If we continue the faith(as hard as it may be to do so) we will BE ALRIGHT!! Parents and leaders of our children please let them know they can still change the world for the better! Don’t lose a bit of faith! They’re our future and we must remain stronger than ever!! Yes we all wanna lace up the boots, put on the hard hats and strike but that’s not the answer. Love, genuine LOVE and FAITH will be the only thing that can get us through this. Minorities and Women in all please know that this isn’t the end, it’s just a very challenging obstacle that we will overcome!! The man above will never put something in our paths that we can handle no matter how difficult it may feel/be! To all the youth out there I PROMISE I’ll continue to lead u guys every single day without no hesitation!! Time to educate and even more mold my children into being the greatest model citizens they can become in life! They will continue the legacy beyond life! Lastly, Even if whos now in office doesn’t, Know that I LOVE YOU’LL!!!
James said on Tuesday ahead of the Cavs’ loss to the Atlanta Hawks that “basketball comes second” on Election Day, so it’s no surprise he took to social media to react to what many are heralding as a stunning and shocking outcome. While he’s not the only sports superstar reacting to the developments, James’ words likely will be heard the loudest.
