Can you blame him? Folks are noting the gloating by LeBron James in the wake of Nike‘s stock shares hitting an all-time high in the wake of the company’s ad campaign featuring Colin Kaepernick.
If you missed the news, Nike closed at $83.47 Thursday for the first time ever just eight days after the orange a-hole in the White House told the world that the company was “getting absolutely killed” because of “anger and boycotts” over its ad campaign. Wrong! On Friday, shares closed in regular trading at $83.49, although the stock price slipped a bit in after-hours trading.

As we’ve reported, the ad features the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback and the movement he launched by taking a knee during the national anthem before NFL games to protest racial injustice.
“Well I mean I guess WE’RE on [fire],” gushed James on Twitter, adding the hashtag ”#JokesOnYou.” James, who has signed a lifelong contract with Nike, also appears in the ad campaign.
And of course Trump is also not a fan of James. He maligned the intelligence of the new Lakers star as well as CNN host Don Lemon, who interviewed James last month, via a tweet that triggered outcries of racism against Trump. Lemon accused the president of “trafficking in racism.”
