Will Ferrell told LeBron James to run for president

Mavericks’ owner Mark Cuban is considering throwing his hat in the ring for the 2020 presidential election (as an independent?). He said he probably will not, because his wife and family don’t want him to, but he’s considering it. If not in 2020, maybe down the line.

It would be awesome if he had to run against LeBron James.

Comedian Will Ferrell was on NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers this week and told the story of running into LeBron during the playoffs and telling him he should run for president.

“I went over to LeBron, I was like, ‘I just have to say hello. How are you?’ And I said, ‘I was just telling my wife the other night that you need to run for president. You’re from the Midwest. You’re very famous, you’re very popular, you’re very articulate. Please run for office.’ So, LeBron, I’m telling you now… we need you.”

Technically, we don’t elect Kings in the United States.

That said, considering everything going on in the political sphere right now, does President LeBron seem all that crazy? It’s not like he’s going to do a worse job.
