Donald Trump posts freaky reply to tweet accusing him of stoking racism

President Donald Trump is feuding with LaVar Ball and LeVar Burton is taking the hit on Twitter. But put Master P in the category of people who thinks the Big Baller Brand spokesman should be appreciative of the Commander in Chief's efforts.

What's rich is this provoked but unsolicited promotion all comes free.

LiAngelo and fellow UCLA freshmen Jalen Hill and Cody Riley have been suspended indefinitely.

Big Baller Brand has been in development for several months. If anything, thanks to the Trump Bump, no matter how he slings his poisoned arrows, this exposure could provide some short-term benefits to some degree.

"That's on your mind, that a father didn't say "Thank you"?" All three players have been suspended indefinitely from the UCLA basketball team.

Cuomo's attempt to have Ball explain how he could say Trump had played no role and Ball's claimed "people on the ground" deserved the credit resulted in Ball turning on him. "You want me to thank you?" said Ball. It was also a crack against the bow of corporate America, a consciously rebellious move against the athletic shoe and apparel monopoly that Nike, Under Armor and others represented.

Trump responded by tweeting "MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN".

That could have been enough to place the volume-challenged Ball and ego-sensitive Trump on opposite sides of any sort of allegiances.

UCLA was in Shanghai to face Georgia Tech in their season opener on November 10 where they beat the Georgians 63-60. But remember LaVar, shoplifting is NOT a little thing. The players were released and returned to the United States last week.

"It is true that in some of these cases, Trump was attacked or at least criticized first", he wrote.

The president was responding to a 23-minute Monday CNN interview of Ball with Chris Cuomo that has since gone viral and has been called weird.

"Stay In Yo Lane" already happens to be a slogan on a BBB T-shirt he sells.

"Did (Trump) help the boys get out?"

"Too bad! LaVar is just a poor man's version of Don King, but without the hair", he said, referencing the flamboyant boxing promoter whom Mr Trump once saluted as "a phenomenal person" despite a conviction for manslaughter.

On Dec. 3, 1987 - almost 30 years ago - Ball scored two points for Washington State in a 60-54 loss to BYU in Pullman, Washington.

"Who?" Ball asked's Arash Markazi. "That's not Trump's wheelhouse".

He added: "If you help, you shouldn't have to say anything". "Come on", Ball said. More recently, the president has been fiercely critical of black athletes protesting the "Star Spangled-Banner" as a demonstration against white supremacy in the U.S. You'll find economists and analysts who can back that up. He went on to call Ball an "ungrateful fool".
