There’s seemingly no end in sight to President Trump’s Twitter fingers when it comes to sounding off on LaVar Ball after helping to get his son, LiAngelo Ball, and his two UCLA basketball teammates out of China after their shoplifting arrest.
After presumably watching LaVar’s interview on CNN, a livid and ultra-petty Trump jumped onto his Twitter account Wednesday morning at 5:25 a.m. ET to remind the outspoken Big Baller Brand dad that “it wasn’t the White House, it wasn’t the State Department, it wasn’t father LaVar’s so-called people on the ground in China that got his son out of a long term prison sentence — IT WAS ME.”
And the celebrity-in-chief was just getting warmed up, calling LaVar an “ungrateful fool” and adding that “LaVar is just a poor man’s version of Don King, but without the hair.”
Take a look at his full tweets below.
Wow. Shaking our heads. How many more times is Trump going to bring up LaVar Ball?
And if you read that last tweet, it’s plausible to think that Trump is confusing LiAngelo with LaVar’s oldest son, Los Angeles Lakers‘ rookie point guard Lonzo Ball.
Like him or not, LaVar asked a legitimate question to Trump during his CNN interview, saying, “Why is that on your mind? All this stuff going on and that’s on your mind — that a father didn’t say thank you?”
Seriously. When will the president’s pettiness end?
