Lebron James has once again taken a jab at our President this time with a fashion statement.
Lebron James and the Lakers customized parody MAGA hats that said: “Make America (then crossed out Great Again) Arrest The Cops Who Killed Breonna Taylor”.
Lebron James could’ve chosen any other design for his hat but instead decided to mock our President and anyone who supports him.
Ultimately he gave more attention to his disapproval of Trump than his message to arrest the cops who killed Breonna Taylor.
The hats didn’t give the Lakers any luck and the Lakers lost to the Portland Trailblazers 100-93.
"There have been no arrests. There has been no justice."
LeBron James used his news conference following the Los Angeles Lakers' Game 1 playoff match against Portland Trail Blazers to call for justice for Breonna Taylor.

Fox News had this to say about Lebron James and the Lakers:
LeBron James was ready to make his first playoff appearance in a Los Angeles Lakers uniform on Tuesday night. But before he suited up in the team’s purple and gold colors, the NBA superstar wore a shirt and hat in an attempt to send a powerful message.
His hat was a parody of President Trump’s “Make America Great Again” motto from his first presidential campaign, but instead it read, “Make America Arrest The Cops Who Killed Breonna Taylor.”
“By Any Means‼️ Lets Get It #JusticeForBreonnaTaylor,” James wrote on his Instagram page.
This wasn’t the first time James took a shot at Trump. He once referred to him as a “bum” after Trump criticized Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry when he declined an invite to the White House.
“Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up,” LeBron tweeted at Trump at the time.
James also once called Trump a “clown.”
Ahead of Game 1 of their first-round playoff series against the Portland Trail Blazers, players from the Lakers were seen wearing red hats that looked like Trump supporters' MAGA caps, but they had a message on them about seeking justice for Breonna Taylor https://t.co/NjdgriV5Bb

The Daily Mail reported this about the Lakers wearing parody MAGA hats:
LeBron James together with the Los Angeles Lakers sent a clear message on their pre-game outfits on Tuesday night before the opening game of their first-round playoff series against the Portland Trail Blazers.
As they made their way to the arena, James and his teammates wore parody Make America Great Again hats similar to the ones worn by President Donald Trump.
Instead of ‘Great Again’, which had been crossed out, the cap read ‘Make America Arrest the cops who killed Breonna Taylor.’
This is a publicity stunt by Lebron James to once again show his distrust and hate towards the President.
Lebron and the Lakers could have used any design in the world but decided to copy a MAGA hat design to show their dissatisfaction with President Trump.
Once again Lebron raises the banner of social justice but at the same time raises the banner of self-exaltation.
