I am not making this s*** up either.

Lebron James:

"We will definitely not shut up and dribble. I will definitely not do that. I mean too much to society, I mean too much to the youth, I mean too much to so many kids that feel like they don’t have a way out and they need someone to help lead them out of the situation they’re in," the Cleveland Cavaliers player said.

Jennifer Lawrence:
"I'm going to take the next year off," Lawrence told ET.

"I'm going to be working with this organisation as a part of Represent. Us ... trying to get young people engaged politically on a local level. It doesn't have anything to do with partisan (politics).

"It's just anti-corruption and stuff trying to pass state-by-state laws that can help prevent corruption, fix our democracy."

lol, there have always been dumb athletes and actors.

But they sure are paid a lot and have weird self images these days, don't they ?

Tell 'em to both take a year off and move to Chicago and actually save some kids' lives.

About as much chance of that, as the UN actually moving to where it's needed. Nope, not gonna be any real work done, if it takes away from the royal comfort and regal pedestal.

The Lebron interview is worse if you actually hear him speak.

Dis somanumbatching country was founded so that the liberties of common patriotic citizens like me could not be taken away by a bunch of fargin iceholes... like yourselves.

For anyone willing to defend these two clowns, I just have a couple of questions.

For one, what insights does LeBron James provide to today's black youth that would inform them to escape poverty?

On Jennifer Lawrence, what insights does she have that will help protect democracy and eliminate gov't corruption.

I think we are now starting to see the results of celebrity worship. I'm watching a whole series on Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, and Euripides. These were some of the geniuses who are the real pioneers of Western civilization and thought.

Enter LeBron James and Jennifer Lawrence.

Are you serious about LeBron James?....

He has done a lot for the city of Cleveland and surrounding communities.....

He shouldn't be speaking about politics. I'll agree with you there but inner city youth looking up to James instead of some the hip/hop trash that is out there is a good thing......

haha, didn't take long.

FWIW, I love Jennifer Lawrence. Not her brain so much. She's a semi-buttaface who just seems so nice and perky.

Plus I've read references to her screwing her way to the top with a gusto. I approve of this message and method, if it's simply her choice.

You didn't answer my question. What insights does he provide that would allow your average black kid to escape the ghetto? Make the NBA and you can be rich like me?

I'm not even commenting on his politics. I'm commenting on his belief that his view is important for youth and society.

Same thing for Jennifer Lawrence. How does she fix corruption and "stuff?"

Does LeBron James say look up to me as opposed to hip hop artist that promote drugs, alcohol and gang participation as a lifestyle?

I have never heard him say anything remotely like that. On the contrary.

Where exactly in the quote you've provided does he say it's his views that do that?..He is probably the most recognized athlete in the world. An inflated ego comes with that title...

In terms of helping youth?....His foundation and James personally have donated over 100 million for community centers, college scholarships, etc...He is about as straight as arrow as you can get in the NBA....

He took offense to Laura Ingraham's idiotic statement, which interestingly enough you didn't preface this story with.....

You guys are really reaching now....

Who would you prefer speak to a troubled black person on how to escape poverty and improve their life? The man you openly disparaged in the past, Ben Carson, or LeBron James?

LeBron is entitled to offer whatever opinion he wants.

But he should quit being a huge baby when he gets criticized.

On the contrary, I disagreed with Laura Ingraham. Let these guys speak. In fact, don't let them stop.

It’s her schtick.

Now she’s “racist.”

I really don’t like her st all, but racist is a reach based on this.

Had Lebron been a hockey player and she said that, we can talk..... but this is junk

What's funny is that I am no fan of Laura Ingraham. I followed her on Facebook and seen just how plain and uninteresting she really is. I I agree with a lot of what she says, but I just don't know how she got a show over so many others who are so much smarter. I think Fox News was really reaching for a Megan Kelly replacement, but she lacks her looks and intelligence. Regardless of what people think of Kelly, particularly over her opposition to Trump's candidacy, she was a pretty hard-nosed intelligent inquisitor who single-handedly destroyed Donna Brazile one night.

Laura Ingraham is and was not the answer. The only show I actually watch on Fox these days is Tucker Carlson and sometimes the Five.

Yeah, she seems like a lightweight.

I actually watch very little television.

I get my news on my IPad and from my Twitter feed.

Tucker is awesome. No one can look as outraged over nothing as him.
