Usually, couples are supposed to have each other's back, but it's hard to defend President Trump when he's taking shots at one of the most influential athletes of all-time.

Since taking office, Trump has clashed with several United States sports stars, most notably after he called on the National Football League (NFL) owners to fire players who protest during the national anthem.

Lemon began by going through his recent interview with James - which went beyond the basketball star's political views and placed great focus on how he's building a public school for at-risk children.

"Millions elected Trump to be their coach", Ingraham said after insulting James' intelligence.

In addition to his comments on James, Rodgers also voiced support for NFL players who have elected to kneel during the national anthem, saying that much of the anger over the protests misses "the point of what this was all about".

Harry Maguire, Jamie Vardy Unlikely to Face Man United in Season Opener
The 28-year-old has made 107 appearances for the Red Devils since joining the club from Sporting Lisbon in 2014. Jose Mourinho has time and again picked up the topic of missing some of his key players in the pre-season tour.

In the wide-ranging one-on-one interview which was first aired on Monday with a repeat broadcast on Friday, Lemon asked James: "What would you say to the [US] president if he was sitting right here?" Most of America, anyway.

Melania Trump made headlines when her spokeswoman issued a statement Saturday that said James appears to be "working to do good things" for children. In response, Fox News pundit Laura Ingraham dedicated a segment to chiding James for discussing politics at all while a professional athlete. "He's doing an incredible job for his community".

The Commander-in-chief was referring to an interview in which the National Basketball Association legend opened up to Lemon about how he felt Trump had used sport to exacerbate U.S. racial tensions.

"President Trump is trying a divide and conquer strategy here, and here's how it goes", he continued. Just look at the I PROMISE school he opened in Akron last week for proof. "Some of those people are white". But it's still shocking to see a President of the United States making such an unapologetic assault on the Fourth Estate as part of an apparent strategy of discrediting sources of power that contradict his own preferred versions of reality. And he has disinvited championship teams whose members have been critical of him from traditional White House visits. "It's always been something that brings someone together", he said.
