About LaVar Ball vs Donald Trump

Ball didn't back down during the CNN interview, telling host Chris Cuomo that Trump has more important things to do than ask for his gratitude.

Sports dad LaVar Ball continued Monday to refuse to thank President Donald Trump for aiding the release of his son LiAngelo, a UCLA basketball player, from China after his arrest on suspicion of shoplifting - but had no problem praising Chinese President Xi Jinping. LaVar Ball explained that he didn't "Thank" the president because he didn't know what he did. This should be exponentially true for the president who, if you really stop to think about it, is the ultimate employee - he has over 326 million bosses (the American people, who he is supposed to be working for, not against, whether they appreciate it or not). If there's anything the former reality star loves more than golfing at Mar-a-Lago, it's firing off ill-thought out tweets.

"Who?" LaVar Ball said when asked about Trump's role in the release of the players. And you're supposed to be, you know, you're the head of the U.S.? "I've got to talk to my kid, '" Gingrich said.

"Did [Mr Trump] help the boys get out?"

In a video posted to his social media, Snoop Dogg was watching an ESPN news show discussing Trump's remarks to which Snoop angrily proclaimed, "Fuck Donald Trump". "You've got people who make suggestions and people who do things". "Let him do his political affairs and let me handle my son, and let's just stay in our lane". LaVar's son, LiAngelo Ball, recently escaped jail time following a shoplifting arrest in China, which Trump says is all thanks to him. "'Shoulda left them in jail?' What kinda n--a is you, man?"

"I would've said thank you if he would've put him on his plane and took him home", Ball told Cuomo.
