Petition calls for LeBron James to be U.S. Secretary of Education

10 August 2018

A group of LeBron James fans would rather see the National Basketball Association legend go to Washington, D.C., than become a Los Angeles Laker. She has authored a petition titled "LeBron James For Secretary of Education!" with its intended recipient being none other than President Donald J. Trump.

An online petition calling for LeBron James to replace Betsy DeVos as USA secretary of education has received more than 9,000 signatures in a campaign of staggering hypotheticals, The San Francisco Chronicle reported. LeBron James is an inspiration to kids all over the country. We certainly deserve better!' the petition reads.

During a recent conversation with Don Lemon, LeBron had this to say regarding Trump, "What I've noticed over the past few months, he's kinda used sports to kinda divide us, and that's something that I can't relate to".

This push comes just days after President Trump controversially tweeted Friday suggesting that James isn't smart: "Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon".

"The coverage made it look like the whole thing is his", said Mark Williamson, spokesman for Akron Public Schools district.

Such a shift doesn't seem likely, though, especially given the testy relationship between President Trump and James, who will soon produce a Showtime documentary series.

The petition calls for public support to help get James named as head of the nation's education, glossing over the enormous hypothetical that Trump would have to name him.

James and current Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos, are each of the two "candidates" listed on the petition.

Curry has even taken after James, too. Meanwhile Betsy DeVos makes it easier for scammers to scam'.

'These idiots! He opened a school and is making tax payers pay for the majority if it all!

'So glad the Dems are supporting Betsy Devos Charter School Vouchers now; wonder how many people are aware that cost of the LeBron James school will be passed on to the tax payers?' someone else added.
