LaVar Ball reacted to President Trump’s tweet about him allegedly being ungrateful for the president helping get his son out of possible jailtime in China.
Ball’s son, UCLA player LiAngelo Ball, as well as two other players were facing several years jailtime on a shoplifting charge.
Trump said he negotiated with Chinese President Xi Jinping for their release.
The elder Ball told CNN that he is not attacking or criticizing the president, but doesn’t necessarily feel the need to thank him.
“I don’t need to go around saying thank you to everybody.”
Chris Cuomo pressed that the younger ball could’ve faced a minimum of three years for shoplifting.
Maybe Trump should make a call and ship his son’s sorry ass back to China.
Shaun White Apologizes for Dragging American Flag, Promises Infidel Radio it ‘Won’t Happen Again’
We think you are the shit…just don’t be a dumb ass again!
Snowboarder Shaun White apologized Wednesday for dragging a U.S. flag on the snow after his dramatic gold medal victory in the men’s halfpipe, but said he did not know he had let the flag touch the ground.
“I remember being handed the flag but I was trying to put my gloves on and hold the flag and get board,” he told reporters afterward. “Honestly, if there was anything, I definitely didn’t mean any disrespect.”
“The flag that’s flying on my house right now is way up there. So sorry for that,” White continued. “But I’m definitely proud — very proud — to be a part of Team USA and being an American and to be representing for everyone back home.”
White reclaimed his Olympic halfpipe title, landing back-to-back 1440s to knock Japan’s Ayumu Hirano out of the top spot, and at the same time won the United States’ 100th all-time gold medal at the Winter Olympics.
But White, who also won his third gold medal, immediately got criticism on Twitter for allowing the flag touch the ground several times while he was overcome with emotion following his career-capping performance.
