Basketball superstar LeBron James shamed Donald Trump for even having the time to attack him on Twitter, telling the Hollywood Reporter the president “has the most powerful job In the world” and should have “this much time” to insult him.

James, a frequent target of Trump’s, said it “bothers” him that Trump “had the time to even do that.”

“He has the most powerful job in the world,” James said. “Like, you really got this much time that you can comment on me?"

Last month, after the opening of James’ “I Promise” School in Akron, Ohio, Trump took to Twitter to attack both James and CNN host Don Lemon.

Asked if it “bothers” him that Trump insulted his intelligence, James laughed, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

“No, because I’m not,” He said. “That's like somebody saying I can't play ball. That doesn't bother me at all.”

On an unrelated note, James is set to star in "Space Jam 2."
