Sure LiAngelo Ball had a pretty lousy time after being arrested for shoplifting in China a couple weeks ago. But at least he can take solace in the fact that no matter what he does, he’ll never be the most hated person in his family.
That’s because his too-proud papa, LaVar Ball, can’t help but open his mouth. ALL the time.
And like he did this weekend, when he tried to downplay President Trump intervening to help get his son out of China. You know, the communist country who could have shredded his son, his buddies (the other two UCLA players—Cody Riley and Jalen Hill) who were also caught stealing?
Yeah, which is probably why the first thing LiAngelo did when he got stateside was thank the President and his lucky stars in that order.
His father did the opposite asking “Who?” when asked about Trump's involvement, adding “What was he over there for? Don’t tell me nothing. Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out.”
Yeah, can you believe that?
Tell you who couldn’t, our president who tweeted that Daddy Ball was "unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal. I should have left them in jail!"
Of course, Trump shouldn’t have done that and besides, reuniting LiAngelo with his arrogant idiot father is far worse punishment.
