Petition looking to make LeBron James secretary of education gets thousands of signatures

The internet is a wild and wacky thing most of the time.  There are videos of cats that have been watched millions of times. Not hundreds, not even thousands, but millions. It’s also a location where tweets from seven, eight years ago can end up costing you a job.

Now, apparently it’s a place where people openly advocate for an NBA player to be appointed as the US secretary of education. Seriously, there is a petition asking President Trump to replace US Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos with Los Angeles Laker LeBron James. More than 36,000 people have signed the petition. Voluntarily.  Of course, only after viewing cat videos.

This petition comes after James recently opened a school in his hometown of Akron, Ohio. James’ school will help at-risk children and will also help parents with career and educational support.

One can only imagine the petition will gain thousands of more signatures…and then go absolutely nowhere.

But let’s remember two simple reasons why James will never be appointed secretary of education: President Trump likes Mike and LeBron “will never sit across from him.”

So, you see that just doesn’t seem like the beginnings of a good, strong working relationship. Although, stranger things have happened, like a reality TV star becoming President of the United States.
