Donald Trump's retort guarantees LaVar Ball exactly what he wants: More attention

Donald Trump war of words was inevitable the moment LiAngelo Ball was arrested in China on suspicion of shoplifting during a UCLA team trip, which is a wild statement to say about the Kris Jenner of the basketball and the leader of the free world. Don't tell me nothing. "I should have left them in jail!", Trump wrote in a Twitter post.

The players returned to the US last week. "Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out", he added.

Appearing on MSNBC, a Los Angeles Times writer said he was not surprised that President Donald Trump attacked the father of a UCLA basketball player because the dad is black and Trump likely considers him "uppity".

LaVar Ball (LiAngelo's father) downplayed the role President Trump had in getting the three players back to the United States without serving any jail time earlier this week. To continue his aggressive online attack against black men and women, Trump took to Twitter about an hour ago to share his own thoughts on the Ball x China situation.

LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo Ball, on Saturday suggested Trump had little to do with the release of the three Bruins basketball players who were accused of shoplifting and were under house arrest in Hangzhou, China. They will not travel with the team or suit up for home games. It probably involved someone on the White House staff making a call and reminding the Chinese that sticking three USA basketball players in jail for shoplifting isn't such a bright idea. "Be careful, there are many pitfalls on the long and winding road of life!" Trump intervened on their behalf during a previously planned two-day visit to Beijing, personally lobbying Chinese President Xi Jinping to look into resolving the case.

UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero said last week that the players stole from three stores.

"Who?" Ball told ESPN on Friday. I'm from L.A. I've seen a lot worse things happen than a guy taking some glasses.

Really? You are that vain and shallow that you would say such a thing.
