According to CNS News, Sen. John Kennedy slammed NBA star LeBron James stating that he goes from “zero to screw everyone pretty fast.”
“Well, first I think Mr. James did the right thing by pulling down the tweet. Look, Harris, I admire his passion. He’s clearly a leader for many Americans for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is his extraordinary physical skills,” Kennedy said.
“I think sometimes Mr. James has more zeal than wisdom. He doesn’t wait on the facts. I mean, he can go from zero to screw everyone pretty fast, and I wish I was as sure of anything as Mr. James sometimes seems to be sure of everything. I don’t want to be overly critical, but on a situation like this, you have to get the facts, and what happened in Columbus was horrible,” the senator said.
“I mean a cop had to choose between two lives in a split second, and I know some have said—President Biden when he was running said, well, the cop ought to shoot the gun, the knife out of their hands. This isn’t Silverado or Deadwood. This isn’t the movies. Cops sometimes have to make quick decisions, and we have to wait for the facts and investigation,” he said.
