It's a problem that the President is tweeting that he should have let LaVar Ball's teenage son, UCLA basketball player LiAngelo, rot in a Chinese prison because his father wasn't "grateful" enough to the President.
"You're a has been actor with a thief for a son and Trump is president of the United States. LaVar Ball, good looking out, I wouldn't have thanked that mothafucker either", Snoop added.
"Shoplifting is a very big deal in China, as it should be (5-10 years in jail), but not to father LaVar", the president tweeted Sunday. And you're the head of the U.S.? "I did hear three "President Trumps" and three 'American government.' Now they get back on American soil, he [LaVar Ball] wants to pound his chest". The first thing I would say? "Should have gotten his son out during my next trip to China instead". "I don't know. If I was going to thank someone, I would probably thank President Xi".
Of LaVar's response to EPSN, Colbert joked, "Pretending not to know him is the meanest thing you can do to Donald Trump".
Mr. Trump exploded on social media over the weekend after hearing of the elder Ball's reactions to his diplomatic efforts.
BALL: OK. If he paid for the money to put up whatever we needed to do then I will say thank you. In the process, he also winds up saying that Trump is the one who should be suspended. "I'm just saying I had some things done, I had some people who did some other things".
Clearly, Ball thinks Trump did nothing special. The players are also prohibited from suiting up, sitting on the bench for home games and traveling with the team.
