Mike Huckabee Calls on LeBron James to ‘Relocate’ to China: ‘If You Hate America, You Don’t Have to Stay’

Republican former governor of Arkansas Mike Huckabee has fired back at NBA star LeBron James’s latest anti-American comments.

As Slay News previously reported, James weighed in on the Brittney Griner case after the “woke” women’s basketball player pleaded guilty to drugs charges in Russia.

Griner, who is known for protesting the American national anthem, is currently trapped in Russia and is facing 10 years in a Russian prison after she was caught trying to leave the country with cannabis in her bag.

Despite the grim prospects for Griner, James said that, if he were in the WNBA player’s shoes, he would question coming back to America.

He argued that the American people don’t have “her back.”

“Now, how can she feel like America has her back?” he said.

“I would be feeling like, ‘Do I even want to go back to America?’”

Enter Mike Huckabee who said:

“Maybe ‘Mr. China made me rich!’ Lebron ought to relocate to the country that enriches him by slave labor.

“If you hate America, you don’t have to stay.”

Despite James’s comments, Griner is desperate to get back to the country she and other “woke” athletes have been bashing.

Reps for Griner say they are hopeful she will receive “no severe sentence” after making the admission in court.

“The guilty plea was her decision informed by discussion with her legal defense team in Russia,” Griner’s legal team said.

“Brittney sets an example of being brave.

“She decided to take full responsibility for her actions as she knows that she is a role model for many people.”

“Considering the nature of her case, the insignificant amount of the substance and BG’s personality and history of positive contributions to global and Russian sport, the defense hopes that the plea will be considered by the court as a mitigating factor and there will be no severe sentence,” the reps said.
