LeBron James commented on Donald’s Trump “locker room talk” quote.
Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James officially endorsed Hillary Clinton for president last month, and after hearing his thoughts on one of the trending topics involving Donald Trump, it doesn’t look like that’ll be changing any time soon.
Tuesday, James was asked about Donald Trump’s “locker room talk ” quote – which he dropped in response to a Washington Post video that showed him making lewd comments about women ahead of an Access Hollywood segment 11 years ago. James made it clear that his locker room does not talk about those kinds of topics. He said that’s “trash talk ” – not locker room talk.
James also called Trump “that guy” – which is interesting in itself. Here’s the full quote:
“What is locker room talk to me? It’s not what that guy said. We don’t disrespect women in no shape or fashion in our locker room. That never comes up. I got a mother-in-law, a wife, a mom and a daughter and those conversations just don’t go on in our locker room. What goes on in our locker room is sporting events that might have happened the night before, or family, or strategies that we may have that night. A highlight that may have happened, if there was a home run in the bottom of the ninth or an alley-oop dunk play from the night before. That’s what happens in our locker room. What that guy was saying, I don’t know what that is. That’s trash talk.”

Oddly enough, James is the second star athlete to be asked about Trump’s quote today. He is, however, the only one who answered. New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady earlier left his press conference after being asked about the topic.
