Fox News Host Laura Ingraham Told LeBron James to ‘Shut up And Dribble’ Following Drew Brees Comments
June 4, 2020
Laura Ingraham is one of the very few people who support Drew Brees these days, and LeBron James doesn’t like it.
The entire nation criticized the New Orleans Saints quarterback for his comments on players who kneel during the national anthem. Brees believes that no one should disrespect the anthem, and Ingraham supports him.
“He’s allowed to have his view about what kneeling and the flag means to him,” she said. “I mean, he’s a person, he has some worth I would imagine. This is beyond football, though. This is … totalitarian conduct. This is Stalinist.”
Let’s talk about double standards. Ingraham was the one who criticized LeBron James back then. And now she supports Brees? Why?
Ingraham didn’t really support LeBron in 2018. The Los Angeles Lakers superstar criticized the President of the United States during an interview with ESPN. Ingraham didn’t like this, and she slammed LeBron.
“It’s always unwise to seek political advice from someone who gets paid $100 million a year to bounce a ball,” Ingraham said. “Keep the political comments to yourselves. … Shut up and dribble.”

When it comes to Brees, he soon apologized for the comments he made. The quarterback took to his Instagram account to deliver his message and apologize to everyone involved.
“I would like to apologize to my friends, teammates, the City of New Orleans, the black community, NFL community and anyone I hurt with my comments yesterday. In speaking with some of you, it breaks my heart to know the pain I have caused.”
Brees shared a black image the day before he made the comments on anthem kneelers. That’s why people slammed him for making those comments. But, it’s always great when you see someone take responsibility for their actions. Brees knows that and he apologized to the entire nation.
The country is caught in the middle of big chaos. George Floyd’s death brought people in the streets. Minneapolis police officers arrested him, and he was killed during police custody. The officers lost their job, and they will also face charges for Floyd’s death. Hopefully, his family will find the peace they’ve been looking for.
