No winners in Trump-LaVar Ball feud

President Trump Blasts Father of Recently Released UCLA Player for Being Unappreciative of His Help in Gaining Son’s Release

U.S. President Donald Trump on Sunday said he was sorry for helping secure the release of three college basketball players caught shoplifting in China, after one of their fathers downplayed the president's role. Like I told him, 'They try to make a big deal out of nothing sometimes.' I'm from L.A.

LaVar Ball, father of basketball player LiAngelo Ball and the owner of the Big Baller brand, pictured in Hong Kong on Tuesday.

Trump, apparently sore about something said by a celebrity the rest of us have long ago learned to ignore, then said he should have left the UCLA players in jail, which is of course extremely presidential.

After the players returned, Trump wondered on Twitter whether they would thank him for his intervention on their behalf. That's gonna be debated, that's gonna be argued about, but I want to put that on the table: "it sure looks like race-baiting to a lot of people".

Sunday afternoon, Trump took to Twitter to complain that LaVar Ball failed to thank him for reportedly saving his son, LiAngelo, from being jailed after he was accused of shoplifting in China. Trump said in a tweet.

The kids, LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill, all made reference of thanks to Trump at a news conference held once they were back in the US, but obviously that is not enough to the Orange Mound of Hair and Lies. Yet Trump intervened, personally asking Chinese president Xi Jinping to help resolve the case.




LiAngelo Ball, Hill and Riley have been indefinitely suspended from the team.

The trio isn't allowed to suit up, be on the bench for home games or travel with the team.

Athletic director Dan Guerrero said the shoplifting occurred when the team had 90 minutes of free time on November 6 in Hangzhou.

As long as my boy's back here, I'm fine.

Really? You are that vain and shallow that you would say such a thing. Now if you can go back and say when he was 12 years old he was shoplifting and stealing cars and going wild, then that's a different thing.
