God bless you, Donald Trump!
You’re the President we don’t deserve but are so lucky to have!
A real man who calls it like he sees it and isn’t afraid to speak up and call someone an “ungrateful fool” when they’re being an….ungrateful fool.
As everyone not living under a rock already knows, President Trump made a personal request to President Xi of China to get the three UCLA players released from prison. They were being held on shoplifting charges and faced prison of up to 10 years.
This morning, Trump had finally had enough and the gloves came off.
Here is more, from CBS News:
The tweets went on, with Mr. Trump writing, "Just think LaVar, you could have spent the next 5 to 10 years during Thanksgiving with your son in China, but no NBA contract to support you. But remember LaVar, shoplifting is NOT a little thing. It's a really big deal, especially in China. Ungrateful fool!"
LaVar's other son, Lonzo, is a star rookie for the Los Angeles Lakers.
The early morning tirade follows his weekend tweets suggesting he should have left the players in jail, calling out Ball's father for being ungrateful for the role Mr. Trump played in their release.
When asked about Mr. Trump's involvement in the matter, LaVar Ball told ESPN, "Who?"
He added, "What was he over there for? Don't tell me nothing. Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out."
Mr. Trump has said he raised the players' detention with Chinese President Xi Jinping during the leaders' recent meeting in Beijing. The players were arrested and questioned about stealing from high-end stores next to the team's hotel in Hangzhou, where the Bruins stayed before leaving for Shanghai to play Georgia Tech.
Following their return to the U.S. they have been indefinitely suspended from the team.
