Chris Cuomo LaVar Ball

CNN host Chris Cuomo, who is substituting for Don Lemon, invited controversial sports dad LaVar Ball on the show to discuss LaVar’s well-publicized beef with President Trump.

Ball is the father of Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball and LiAngelo Ball, one of three UCLA players who were arrested for shoplifting in China.

LaVar refuses to show gratitude to President Trump for speaking to Chinese President Xi Jinping on behalf of LiAngelo, 18, Cody Riley, 19, and Jalen Hill, 17.

We now know that LiAngelo was the one who boosted the Louis Vuitton sunglasses from a high end mall next door to the Hangzhou Hyatt hotel where the UCLA basketball team was staying.

LaVar still insists that his son’s shoplifting charge is not a big deal. He implied that it was the first time LiAngelo got caught stealing and that his son is a straight A student who’s never been late to class.

“It wasn’t a big deal, because being raised in South Central L.A., I’ve seen harsher things. Okay, he shoplifted. He wasn’t physical. He returned it. He fessed up to it. It wasn’t like he was like, ‘nah, I didn’t take it.'”

Cuomo pressed LaVar to admit Trump deserved gratitude for intervening. But LaVar held his ground.

“He tweeted — ’cause he’s mad at me — ‘I should’ve left their asses in jail’. First of all, they wasn’t in jail, they was in a hotel. How did they get to the hotel on bail? Somebody had to do something.”

LaVar revealed he (or someone else) put up the bail money to bond the boys out of a China jail.

He criticized President Trump for lashing out at him on Twitter.

“If you helped, you shouldn’t have to say anything,” he said. “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?”

    Don’t like Lavar but he has a point about the Donald and his tweets.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Chile demons don’t ever show gratitude case and point your 45 … When has a demon ever been greatful …. They take what they can… Try to getaway with it and keep taking… Chile two demons in conflict is what I say… And both ain’t shyt … Let these lames fight while others will see their evil ways Crystal clear ….

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    And yes sir you are ungrateful as hell Lavar … Ungratefulness across the board …

  • akuakokoblogspotcom

    That was really hard to watch ?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Or maybe he knows that Trump didn’t do much except take credit.

  • You Could Never

    I cannot stand this cat. He sounds so damn stupid and self righteous within the first MINUTE. OMG. I dont like him or Trump. Enough blame to go around. PLENTY. PLENTY.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    This man is a marketing genius. The US Embassy and Jack Ma helped with negotiations with China not the Racist-In-Chief. His son already said thank you why should Lavar have to? He didn’t steal anything his son did and Trump aint worried about the other parents saying thank you. I wouldn’t have told his azz thank you either smh. White men always want “us” to kiss the ring smh…

  • 5000BlinK

    I watched this and I must say…. it was FUNNNNNNNYYYYYY!!!!! First time Ive ever seen anyone that works for CNN go soooo hard for Trump. Im mean really

  • Vonn

    Lavar’ s multi colored teeth gave me a headache. He should invest some of his Big Bullsh!t Brand money into his teeth.

  • You Could Never

    I dont think Levar should have to apologize. in fact, as always I think he should have SIMPLY just STFU. If he wouldnt have said it “wasnt a big deal” NONE of this attention would be on him. None of the other parents are speaking out. Even if he was asked. Silence is golden. His mouth once again cause all this trouble.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    two self serving pricks …. I can careless how a demon’s brain works… They are actually dumb cause they do the same shyt too each other… Two self serving fools yapping about getting theives off … Both idiots… Can you spot the fool between the two or do you see them both wrong in some way… If it’s the ladder case closed

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I somewhat agree but that tweet Trump put out and said “He should have left them in jail?” would have triggered me as a parent…they both need to STFU…

  • You Could Never

    Yeah that would have pissed me off too.And he really IS looking for this man to kiss his ass. I do agree. Very much. Both of em did the absolute most on this situation. I am on minute 8 of this video. Smh

  • Jen_no_juice

    This dad irks me but if his son, the one who did the crime, thanked 45 then what’s the problem??? LaVar, help Wendell get off and ask 45 to thank you for doing his job. It’s about money with China. They thanked whoever sent that money order

  • V Dubb

    Bwahahahahhaha

  • GuestSTAR

    Yeah, he just didn’t articulate himself very well, came off ignorant AF.
    Like Angela said tho, Trump has lied so much since taking office, CLAIMING credit for shyt he had absolutely nothing to do with, whose to say he didn’t lie this time. Mr. Ball said he was already working on getting them home, had boots on the ground. He was saying he didn’t know WHAT Trump did, where’s the proof.

  • blackbutter63

    There’s no way in hell that I could watch 22 minutes of that interview. Trump and Ball are idiots.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    girl i was watching this live…. i had to change the channel a few times ’cause he was talking real ignant… then when i turned byyke, i had got right tickled ’cause you know Chris loves to argue, but Ball had Mo on the ropes…. he’s an azzhole for sure, but in this particular case, i light weight gave him props ’cause i think (long as he don’t cross the line) he time enough for the Azzhole in Chief.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    right! i was like, but Chris, you don’t even like Trump!!!!!!!!!!!

    and you see dude tried to turn Angela’s views into partisan politics and she gathered him quickly and made it plain that Trump has a problem with people of color – period!

    This is a distraction. The father needs to just shut the hell up! They are only talking about his son because the father has a big azz mouth.

  • GuestSTAR

    Girl, she went through the whole list of blacks he’s insulted and Tweeted about just within the last MONTH or two, SMH.

  • V Dubb

    So people from South Central can steal and it’s not a big deal because there is worse going on? Gtfoh yo. You’re full of shit. Get your teeth cleaned, grow some balls Ball, and fess up that your kid is a klepto. Karma always gets you esp. when you’re ungrateful.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    yes, receipts!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Ugh, Lavar Ball irks the hell out of me.

    THAT being said, one thing America hates is a black man that will not bow down. A black man that has a mind of his own and does not want to be owned. And miss with me the, “it’s not about race” line. Because the racial undertones are very clear.

    I have only listened to about 7 minutes of this and already the tone of the journalist is bothering the hell out of me. “Before you inserted yourself”…mfer that’s his son!!

  • Junkanoo

    There’s so much going on these days l have to pick and chose what to care about ,this isn’t on the list .The real story here is that people still watch CNN ,who were in bed with Hillary and gave Trump so much focus.

  • unknown user

    Ive been around college sports players. They literally treat them like babies. They do whatever they want to and rarely face any consequences. I can imagine them stealing that crap. Just to do it. I hope he has disciplined the boy but i doubt it. Thats all i got

  • Phillybruh

    I am here for whatever reality show shenanigans this man has to offer. The way he took over that interview was entertaining as hell. And he still didn’t say thank you..lol If I ain’t see it, it wasn’t done. I’m certain he thanked who ever forked over the restitution fee so those boys can go, that’s the real hero!

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    oh well, there’s two many azzhole’s to actually choose a side here (for me), and this too shall pass… much ado…. *yawn*

    what i want to know is who’s the NEXT corporate or political predator to be exposed! *goes to check news feed right quick*

  • 5000BlinK

    I sat and watched and just giggled. Chris was really stanning for Trump! Thats all I took away from it.

  • sceutie

    I started thinking about this on another level. This also reflects poorly on UCLA’s protocol systems for teams traveling to other countries. I would think they would need to be chaperoned in some way (perhaps with a translator) also for safety reasons. If no one communicated to these players “this is where you are and this is how you behave” then that is another major failing in this whole scenario. Otto Warmbier wasn’t so lucky.

  • Nathan Hastings

    Niggas, not black people, are entitled and beloved that the world owes them something.

    stanning and failing at the same damn time! i ain’t never seen nobody eat Chris’ azz up like that! (this why it’s not wise to argue with a fool, ROFL)

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    Ball even hinted at others being involved and that he HAD thanked those people (he just didn’t name names)

  • Phillybruh

    He said a lot in that interview that clearly points at Trump not doing anything but mentioning those boys in passing. That man knows who was instrumental in getting those boys home.

  • 5000BlinK

    The Dad (Mr. Ball) basically wanted everyone to know a few things about the situation but not too deep. For instance he said he already had people on the ground in China helping with his Sons situation. They was able to get a bond and was not even in prison at the time. Mr. Ball basically was saying there was a price and that price had been negotiated with the Chinese Gov. and the money was already ready to be transferred to make this go away. If Trump really wanted to show how much muscle and pull he has in China….. why dont he get the young gentleman thats been in prison for 14 months out. They have requested 100,000 to let him go and his family doesnt have the money. I think Lavar Ball and family was able to come up with the amount of money to get their Son and friends out of trouble…. Trump want us to think he was able to pull those strings by himself and thats not true. If so, help someone out who does not have the money to pay their way out.

  • Phillybruh

    He didn’t seem ungrateful, he just wasn’t going to stroke this Presidents ego and instead decided to use it for personal attention, not sure why folks are mad. He is simply doing what the President is doing.

  • You Could Never

    They both went in. That interview was epic. Im shocked bc it did seem like Chris was trying to take up for Cheeto. And I know for a fact he hates him. he has voiced it many times lol.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I said when the news broke that I don’t think that Trump had anything to do with them being released. I need to see proof before I believe that.

    It’s funny how CNN spends 60% of the day calling Trump a liar and an ineffective president. They spend countless man hours creating grade school video projects that clearly show 45 telling lie after lie after lie. Literally taking credit for ish that he did not do or things that have not been done at all. BUT in this instance when the BLACK MAN says 45’s lying azz can kiss his entire azz, they are questioning why he isn’t showing 45 deference? But, it’s not about race though…

  • V Dubb

    I’m sure they did, but who actually believes these little fucktards would do something like this in another country. Their bad if he’s done this before and they took his ass anyway.

  • Phillybruh

    I would have said thank you had be brought them home on his plane..was really telling.

  • GuestSTAR

    Lol

  • 5000BlinK

    The crazy part is… The young Men said thank you. What else does Trump want?? Just like Mr. Ball said.. its common courtesy to tell someone thank you… even if you invite a person somewhere and they cant make it.. you say thank you (just for the thought of inviting me)

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Exactly. The problem is Lavar Ball is unable to communicate effectively. He’s not articulate. This is why it is important that “we” have the capacity to communicate in an articulate educated way. I’m not saying that we can’t speak ebonics/slang, but we need to be able to do both.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    What else does Trump want??
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    To break Lavar Ball, so he can sit around with his racist friends and talk about how he was the one that made Lavar humble himself.

  • 5000BlinK

    Otto Warmbier was in N. Korea and that in itself is something NO ONE should be comparing this case to. You cant compare the UCLA and China situation to the Warmbier and N.Korea situation… its like oil and water

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    he had Chris throwed off tho… when he asked him if his name was Chris Chromo, like google????

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    well, from the looks of things, the only story he gonna be telling about Ball will be ‘the one who got away’ LOL!!!!

  • 5000BlinK

    See and stuff like that pisses me off….real talk. He is the Prez and this is NOT normal. I understand he is a different person but he is still Human, he was still elected to a position and we have been sitting around for almost a year now trying to figure out if he is doing his job or not. Shyt is strange and I know the World is changing but the World is always changing so we should not ignore that there is something wrong here.

    We have to be twice as good. You know this!! You get no where fighting with Satan. No where. He doesn’t even have to interview about it. Let Trump say what he wants. Only people who listen to the numbnut are white folks. Besides your kid is a thief…that’s more concerning.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    This interview was cringe worthy to say the least. I was embarrassed for him

  • Vicki White

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Lol

  • 5000BlinK

    I love the way Ball is not going!!! I dont think its arrogant about the situation or any of that. Its his son!! What do you expect a Parent to do or say?? His family was fully prepared to take on the outcome of the foolish situation the College Kid put himself in. Trump always going into personal spaces in people lives and making it seem like O its no big deal…

  • alwayznillin

    The players are responsible for their own actions. Stealing is a crime in any country. There is no need for UCLA to tell the players, if you steal something and get caught you go to jail.

    It’s not like they were arrested for an action they were unaware is a crime. Taking something that does not belong to you is an universal crime.

  • FOR COMMENT

    Negros are so stupid..Yal hate trump that much not to even say thank you and be sincere. Lavar left China without his son. they were facing 10 years. i would have already said thank you in a millions ways if this was my son. Idiot he could have died in a china prison…this is why blacks will never have nothing or get anywhere..stupid–he is the president deal with it.

  • You Could Never

    Chris was like come again???? Girl.

  • Phillybruh

    Why can’t he interview about it. If trump can demand an apology from him, he is within his rights to explain why he ain’t going to give him that satisfaction. Mr. Ball say what you want, has bested the President on this issue.

  • Queen B

    Its the principal of it tho

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    Doing what the president is doing? This does not make him logical, rational or right…This doesn’t make him a hero. He looked foolish. He added insult to injury…..to even interject that he had enough pull to get his son out of that country. He focused on semantics of whether his child was in prison or a hotel, when the bottom line was, his child could not LEAVE THE COUNTRY at will. Lavar Ball is an idiot

  • V Dubb

    No really he doesn’t understand how many of Trump’s buddies are in the NBA either….you about to mess your son’s future up with your mouth. My point is…thank you no thank you. Stealing is foul. You’re right he can bite back if he wants to…immaturity begets immaturity but there is a bigger picture.

  • 5000BlinK

    You are so right because if Lavar Ball was able to communicate on the level of lets say Van Jones….the interview would have been different and also if Don Lemon was there instead… This interview would have been totally different.

  • Phillybruh

    To you, I found it entertaining. Those boys were never going to JAIL in CHINA. Between the NCAA, UCLA and the billionaire that funded the whole tournament those boys were always coming home. The President wants the credit, for something he had very little to do with ( Lavar all but said that last night). He didn’t have to speak like Barack to get his point across. If you missed it then you really weren’t paying attention.

  • Elevated Soul

    LaVar Ball is a complete clown.He is what’s wrong with what is left of the Black community.

    First off, bail is not a given in China.Many times it’s not offered because it’s not a right. On the occasion that it’s offered,you will usually have to give everything you have.

    If President Trump had paid those thieves dust like Obama paid Wendell Brown,he would be complaining that President Trump didn’t lift a finger….He would be complaining because even he knows the power that the position of President have.

    Keeping someone from going to prison especially in China is a very big deal.Mainstream Media aka Fake News was quiet because it went against the racist natrative and that is why President Trump uses Twitter for now….

    Negroes like this arrogant Ball guy set back the Black race but many Black people are too d@mn brainwashed to see it….

  • Phillybruh

    No he didn’t. No one will remember this when that boy goes PRO.

  • klwbaby

    I agree. Look at Johnny Manziel. He was treated like a king in college but when he step in the NFL and he was hit with reality, he didn’t know how to act.

  • 5000BlinK

    Maybe he had to fork over the restitution fee… which is why he feel the “Thank You” that the players gave on national tv was enough. He acts as if he knows wayyyy more than we do and when you are put in that situation you act like Ball. He didnt do the crime, his Son did and he was obviously fully prepared to do or pay whatever it took to get his Son out of jail and eventually home. We know they are willing to take money like any other Country when it comes to Legal situations involving jail time because another family said they are dealing with the same issue with their Son in China.. but they dont have 100,000. Do you think Ball is able to get his hands on the amount of money they wanted to release his Son? I do, I think he did pay.

  • klwbaby

    Why is that every time a black person does anything wrong, people have to make it a reflection on the entire black community. What they did was wrong and its a reflection on them and them thinking they could really go unnoticed in that store or stores.

    “maybe we were doing some talking with some other people before he even got there” – lavar ball

    and notice he said chris has to “listen slowly and carefully” to what he’s saying.

  • SpillyNillie

    Okay…did they ever go to jail? If so, they went from jail to a hotel room? If so, was this after Trump paid the bail? If they never went to jail and was simply confined to a hotel room, why was bail needed? Did Trump simply negotiate a deal with China to NOT send them to jail? So many questions that need answers…

  • Lavar is a bully

    I’m black and I agree with this 100%….

  • KA

    We know Trump exaggerates (LIES) and takes credit when he shouldn’t. According to Trump, him saying in a meeting in China “let those boys go” – because that’s all he admittedly did – was the reason they were sent home. History has shown that it is NEVER that simple to get an American citizen accused of any crime in a foreign country sent home that easily. It takes serious negotiations for that to happen. So WHY are people so quick to believe that all it took was Trump saying something, when the WHOLE ENTIRE world think he’s a joke?? I’m not saying the government didn’t have some part in it, but I don’t believe it’s something that Trump can personally take credit for. The fact that Trump tweeted “I should have left them in jail” is an indication that he wasn’t even fully aware of the details of the situation.

    And though I’m not a LaVar Ball fan, I support him in this position. He shouldn’t be kissing Trump’s orange a!#!

  • OBAMA would not care!

    LaVar is a BULLY idiot, and there are many like him in our race. Idiots like him put US 50 steps back…..President Trump should have left those thieves in China, because he would still be criticized no matter what he
    would have done…….I’m still trying to figure out why my people hate
    Trump, no one can give me an answer, hell, Obama would not lift a
    finger to get them back UNLESS he was running for a political office.

  • Guess Who

    Why did this sort of remind me of an SNL skit?

    As obnoxious as LaVar can be, I’m glad he held his own!

    I cannot believe they gave this over 20 min. Cuomo was hell bent on trying to make LaVar acknowledge Trump, lol…but LaVar made a great point. HOW THE FUK DID HE OR ANYONE FOR THAT MATTER KNOW THAT OTHER STUFF WAS IN THE WORKS PRIOR TO TRUMP’S ALLEGED HELP?

    lmao!

    That cant be true because its too many people criticizing him to truly care about this one situation and if has the time to care about this small thing (especially when he is the President of the U.S.) then I think we should all be worried. Notice I said “I THINK.” You don’t know what trump really wants from Lavar and neither does anyone else. I know this because I think for my self and common sense stepped in on the rest. I dont have hate for someone I dont know and why do you think your the only one that can think for yourself. That is problematic…or nah

  • You Could Never

    You summed me up nicely

  • Elevated Soul

    Bravo!!!….Black democrats are traitors to the race,they are the true “coon”. White liberals have hella disdain for Blacks that “think for self” because they know unlike the troublesome democratic negro,that we aren’t fooled by they.

    White liberals show so much condescension for Blacks who think for self. i have seen White liberals call think Blacks “crazy” while their black mascot call us “coon”….Black democrats are the mascots,that back up their “condescension”……

  • TxCyn

    Thank you ! I mean Mr. Ball is a lot of things but stupid isn’t one of them ! He was obviously saying what you mentioned above – he even said “you’re not hearing/listening” ?. People need to listen to what people are NOT saying rather than words what they say ! Thank you again!!

  • free

    nooooooooooo!!!! smdh!!!

  • Well$$Well$$?

    Lavar Ball sounds ungrateful and entitled af. His son was totally in the wrong and it could’ve turned out a lot worse. I still think Trumps a douche, but I don’t think it’s coincidental that he was in China and the players were allowed to go home.

  • wiseone

    The polls are right about Dump because he is unfit for the job. You are talking about last year – this is a new day and Dump is going down. Hillary did win the popular vote and the reason why his approval rating is so low is because many of your supporter friends have abandoned you. They woke up but the rest of you are still stuck on stupid. Anybody with an ounce of common sense can see that Dump is unfit for the job – I guess that leaves you out.

  • wiseone

    I sound stupid – you are stupid bytch.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    LOL.
    The rallies were only for Trump’s ego. That’s why he kept having them even after he became president.

  • You Could Never

    Im so sick and tired of the Democrat vs Repub debate on here as IF folks are STILL not aware in 2017 almost 2018…that BOTH parties switched party stances with each other DECADES ago. MANY decades ago. Sometime between the 1860s and 1936. So stop your MESS with that every single political thread. GOOD Lord.

  • 5000BlinK

    Giggling… he did! stuck out his lil hand and everythang

  • Trace da Ace

    exactly!!!!!! I’m going to need receipts on this one…..but then again…I could give zero fu*s about this mess…..I mean they are out….Trump needs to focus on world issues rather than somebody saying thank you…hell the boys already did in a press conference…what else needs to be said??? They are really milking this stupid story…..lets talk about how Pueto Rico is still in shambles and they are US territory!!!! Let’s talk about that Trump!!! Oh, thats right, he is deflecting again…..smdh

  • KA

    Which is exactly what LaVar wants. He wants to distance his son from the conversation so it doesn’t hurt his draft potential. That is why he keeps saying things like “I’ve seen worse” or “you address a mistake and move on from it” and (essentially) my kid is a good kid who made a dumb mistake, which he admitted to and didn’t lie about. He knows the NBA takes character into great consideration when determining the draft. If he intends this kid to go pro relatively soon, he needs to dead this conversation.

  • Karen Brady

    You have to. No question about it.

  • wiseone

    The parties have switched places – now the GOP is the old Democratic party. Now it’s the GOP attacking us and calling us coon and such. I don’t hate my people but I hate bigots. Now it’s the KKK led GOP.

  • Karen Brady

    All of this. ESPECIALLY zero fuks.

  • Karen Brady

    Me too.

  • wiseone

    Dump is not my president because I did not vote for that clown and I will be glad when Robert Mueller takes Dump down.

  • Phillybruh

    And the kids said Thank you. How many Thank yous does a man need.

  • Summer

    The blog COON.

  • Quitedeliteful

    LaVar Ball is gangsta!!!! I don’t believe those boys got out of China on the strength of Trump alone. Cuomo tried hard to out-talk and out-think Ball. Ball stuck to his guns and I can appreciate that. Trump has finally gotten a taste of his own medicine. Trump is arrogant and unapologetic and so is Ball. He could have ‘kept the peace’ by just saying thank you but instead he’s like, so what did you really do for my son??? I am sure Ball has gotten waay under Trump’s skin and I am here for it!!!

  • wiseone

    Get your facts straight – we are not negroes. First and foremost we are human beings. The only thing you said that I agree with is Dump is garbage.

  • wiseone

    Me too – I love when he gets that Kelly Ann bytch upset.

  • Phillybruh

    That’s what I got from it aswell and in the meantime, I’m a get some of this free press for everything Ball family related.

  • Sorry_Not_Sorry

    There’s no proof Trump did sh!t so I’m I have to unfortunately have to agree with LaVar. Why thank him when he doesn’t know if Trump actual did anything. Trump is a proven liar

  • wiseone

    Dump said he loves the uneducated but actually he doesn’t love them. He said he loved them because he knew they were stupid enough to vote for him and fall for his BS. Dump ran a divisive campaign that brought all the racists out looking forward to a step back in time to cross burnings and lynchings. His campaign was race baited and ignorant hicks fell for it hook, line and sinker.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    Because it’s common decency to say thank you when someone does something for you. I REALLY don’t like that man ?

  • Ryan

    So me putting “negroes” in quotation marks didn’t tell you I was being sarcastic and mocking the original post above (which you ignored for some reason despite it being racist as hell) where it was used. SMDH.

  • Phillybruh

    The rest of the world thinks this man is in imbecile so I doubt he played a huge part, his ego would like to think it did. But those kids were always coming home. Why Trump couldn’t just take his credit and leave it alone at the thank you from the boys involved.

  • Vicki White

    Really… U don’t know who or what support or stand for. I’m actually a swing voter. I stand for what is right cause momma didn’t raise no fool or a problem child. It’s called being Well rounded saved sanctified and good with Jesus. #jesus takethecar

  • Guess Who

    Yes, he did hold his own and he made good points. Yeah, they were in a crude and inarticulate way ..but POINTS MADE.

    Trump didn’t help LaVar…he helped his child and two other young men who all said THANK YOU. Why does he need a thank you from LaVar and better yet, why is that orange ape focused on the wrong shyt 10000% of the time? He can lambast LaVar Ball and Colin Kapernik but not Roy Moore? Why not him but Franken?

    My point is SO WHAT LaVar did not say thank you? So what? We don’t know what LaVar was working out on his own and we don’t know what impact of his work in getting his son out of a bind was..NOR do we know that Trump was the trump card to get it him or if he did anything at all.

    I will say Trump loves praise, he loves folks falling at his feet and adoring crowds. LaVar wouldn’t placate him..
    …again, so what?

  • wiseone

    Sorry – my guard is up from reading some of the posts. You are on my side.

  • Guess Who

    He needs them all as his ego is as fragile as his hairline and accolades, positive reinforcement and ass kissing it what he needs to engorge his peen and make him feel like a man.

    ^^^THIS^^^ all of this..completely!

    Exactly. Thank you. This is what I have been telling people. Trump just wanted the good press.

    Who are “our people” that you speak of?

    Foh. He isn’t kissing that racist white mans feet for something he never did!

  • Guess Who

    Did any person from China confirm WHO DID WHAT to get the young men out of China? Funny how that is dead silence….
    ..someone come with some receipts please so this can be laid to rest, lol.

  • Pnthr

    Trump never got them “out”. Open your eyes and ears and stop tap dancing for massa.

  • Chris

    I’m convinced that this Lavar Ball is a complete idiot. I would definitely say ” thank you” to the president regardless to how I felt about him. What could it hurt to do so? If Trump said he helped I would have to take him at his word. I’m sure it’s not as easy to get someone released from China jail by just showing up or making a phone call.

  • Pnthr

    Lavar is absolutely right as usual. As I told some of the delusional women on here, the boys were already going to be released BEFORE Trump alleges he apoke to the president of China. Has that ever been confirmed?

    1. LiAngelo and the other 2 Players did thank Trump.
    2. Lavar didn’t Steal anything and doesn’t have to thank racist Trump.
    3. China’s president didn’t once confirm Trump’s statement.
    4. Trump is a known liar. He lies 5.5 times a day.

  • JENNYJONES1

    NO LAVAR IS AN IDIOT IF HE THINKS WHAT HIS FUNNY LOOKING SON DID WAS NOOOO BIG DEAL IN CHINA. HE BETTER TALK TO THE OTHER BLACK BOY’S FAMILY THAT IS STILL LOCKED UP OVER THERE FOR ALMOST 2 YRS. HIS MOM SAID ‘WE’LL THANK HIM EVERY DAY IF HE CAN GET MY SON OUT’. WHICH GOES TO SHOW YOU WHAT MONEY, A PRESTIGIOUS SCHOOL & POWERFUL FRIENDS CAN DO FOR YOU VS. A REGULAR ‘JOE’. CHINA IS ‘PETTY LABELLE’ FOR REAL ON THINGS WE ARE SPOILED AT GETTING AWAY WITH. I’M SURE TRUMP WASN’T THE ONLY REASON THESE BOYS GOT OUT, I’M FEELING THAT CHINESE BILLIONAIRE HAD 98% TO DO WITH IT BUT HIS ORANGE A$$ DID SPEAK ON THEIR BEHALF SO NO MATTER WHAT A ‘THANK YOU’ SHOULD HAVE BEEN GIVEN INSTEAD OF THE IGNORANCE LAVAR IS SPITTING. EITHER WAY IT’S 2 TOTAL A$$ES GOING AT EACH OTHER………JENNY JONES!!!!

  • Pnthr

    Prove Trump got his son out. You can’t because he didn’t.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I think the billionaire had 98% to do with the boys’ release as well. I also think Phillybruh is right when he says LaVar used this situation as an opportunity for free press for everything Ball related. A simple thank you and we wouldn’t even be talking about this anymore — and even if Ball doesn’t want to say thank you because he feels that the Prez really didn’t do anything substantial to get his son out of China, it would have been wonderful if he could have steered the conversation towards the other young black man rotting away in a Chinese jail…

  • V Dubb

    First of all watch ya damn mouth. All of this fire but no where to put it. Niccas so militant they act like they don’t even know when they are wrong. Bottom line is his son is a damn thief………can’t make that go away no matter how white folks paint it. Talk all of that shit about how great your sons are but this one is a criminal. Go sit down defending foolery.

    Show proof where the GOP is attacking you dummies.You are just repeating tired rhetoric.

    The only whites that call Blacks coons are liberal whites and many Black denocrats follow suit.You say you hate bigots and yet you support the democrats??

    It was Republicans who freed slaves in the physical sense in the 1800’s. In the 1963 according to my research it was Lyndon Baines Johnson who said “We will have those “n_ggers” voting Democrat for 200 years and d@mn if he wasn’t right.This was said due to the Voting Rights Act.Black Democrats STAYED in the party that PUBLICLY called our people NYGGER!

    Dump was looking for Steppin Fetchin to bow and say Massa I’s been mighty bad thank ya kindly suh. Why is Dump picking on him and not the other kids parents? If it was me I would have told Chris did Dump tell the Central Park 5 I am sorry. Did he tell Obama I am sorry but yet he wants me to say “thank you”. Dad was loving it but he was letting the world know Dump ain’t did what yall think he did. When he said Have A Happy Thanksgiving I said dayummmm. He is letting Dump know keep tweeting and I am gonna let it all hang out because according to dad’s attitude he could care less about him. Donald need to black friends to tell him you betta lay off bro. That right there ain’t want you want.

    With his white wife he is unapologetically what???

  • Maxima

    Lavar Ball ain’t thinking about that other boy, he hi too damn selfish and raised his sons to be as well.

  • Maxima

    It is interesting to see the same personalities make the same mistakes. LaVar should have personally apologized to Trump, but tell Cuomo he need not do that on his show. Trump should have quietly dismissed Comey, but no, he had to pick a fight with the FBI and then just last month say that he doesn’t believe his own intelligence agency about Russia.

    Both men have not learned that you don’t pick fights with opponents who can crush you.
    LaVar thinks the world should bow down to his mulatto baller kids.

    Lavar I was down with you until now. You wrong for this one. The fact that the president took the time to mention your sons name, you should be Thankful. No other president would waste 3 seconds of his time mentioning a college athlete name over petty theft.

    Obama did not even step in for Travon Martin but Trump steped in over Petty theft for your son. Your ignorance may be the sole reason he may never waste his time helping another black child.

    You make me sick!

    Everyone just believing Trump ??….he didn’t want to publicly thank the bastard…so be it

  • ?Sugar&Spice?

    Umm… this man should never have accepted this ‘interview’. He answered no questions and sounded like a moron.

  • 100

    If Lavar doesn’t know what Trump did in regards to freeing his son… I get it. He don’t owe him an apology. But where Lavar is wrong is minimizing that his son stole merchandise. As a college basketball member it shows team sportsmen ship by apologizing publicly and letting other athletics know how to be accountable for his/her actions. That’s what Lavar should have his son do. This is called being a
    responsible parent.
