Lebron James Endorses Hillary Clinton

Celebrities are the most important people in the world. They see the world how it truly is. They’re enlightened. They have the insights of millions of dollars. As such, it’s vital for us to listen closely to their salient thoughts on the future of our nation.

LeBron James has finally come forward with his endorsement for Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton. The 3x NBA champion explained his decision in an op-ed piece for Business Insider, but make sure you listen closely, turn off the Food Network’s background noise, American royalty is letting you in on the way he thinks:

As a kid, I didn’t have much money. It was just my mom and me, and things were rough at times. But I had basketball. That gave me a family, a community, and an education. That’s more than a lot of children in Akron can say. There are a lot of people who want to tell kids who grew up like me and looked like me that they just don’t have anything to look forward to.

That’s dead wrong. And that’s why I came back to Cleveland to continue my second mission. I am determined to make sure my kids in Akron have what they need to become their best selves. Opportunities, a support system, and a safety net for kids in poverty or kids in single-parent households shouldn’t be limited to those lucky enough to be blessed with athletic talent.

When I look at this year’s presidential race, it’s clear which candidate believes the same thing. Only one person running truly understands the struggles of an Akron child born into poverty. And when I think about the kinds of policies and ideas the kids in my foundation need from our government, the choice is clear.

That candidate is Hillary Clinton.

If you’re going to listen to anyone this election cycle, I think it should be LeBron James.
