  • Thousands petition for LeBron to take over as U.S. Secretary of Education

The petitioner knows it's unlikely that James would renounce his playing career to take on this role, especially under Trump - but noted it was at least worth a try to open the eyes of many who have remained blinded by this administration.

James and current Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos, are each of the two "candidates" listed on the petition.

Who would you rather?

And Ed Krassenstein added: "LeBron James" school will help at-risk American kids succeed, without making them pay a dime.

Some who shared the sentiment have grown exhausted of DeVos, saying she's "taken every opportunity to work against the interests of the children, teachers, and families she has pledged to serve".

DeVos, meanwhile, recently came under fire for news that one of her family's many yachts appears to have been registered illegally in the Cayman Islands, despite being used in MI.

'Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon.

"The coverage made it look like the whole thing is his", said Mark Williamson, spokesman for Akron Public Schools district.

She has authored a petition titled "LeBron James For Secretary of Education!" with its intended recipient being none other than President Donald J. Trump. Trump's school settled a lawsuit for $25 million after scamming students out of money and providing them nothing in return. This is a tax write off for him, that's it, ' someone tweeted in reference to the viral petition calling for James to replace DeVos.

Curry and James have stuck up for one another and spoken out about Trump over the years.
