Rapper says LaVar Ball should thank Trump: 'Be thankful,' 'Give respect'

Rapper says LaVar Ball should thank Trump: 'Be thankful,' 'Give respect'

"There are plenty of people on all sides of the political and racial spectrums hoping LaVar Ball types will receive their comeuppance, but generally, Trump has saved his most sustained assaults for black people who are prominent and popular among young people, and for those who in a different era might have been considered 'uppity'".

Ball insists Trump had little to do their release and wonders why the president doesn't have more important things to worry about.

"That's on your mind, that a father didn't say "Thank you"?" LaVar Ball's unwillingness to bow down to Donald Trump has spurred an endless stream of media reports and interviews, prompting Donald Trump to lash out at Ball for his refusal to admit that LaVar's son would be on the next season of Locked Up Abroad without the Great White Help.

"Keeping the Ball brand in the news creates a level of tension that definitely does not hurt them". "Let's just stay in our lane", said Ball during a weird 22-minute exchange with CNN's Chris Cuomo opposite "Monday Night Football". "Too bad! LaVar is just a poor man's version of Don King, but without the hair", Trump tweeted.

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. D'Antonio then went on to lay out an argument that Trump essentially "shops" for enemies that can help him with his base - and this frequently leads him to black people.

The attention from the president early Thursday morning was a "jarring wake-up call", Sargent added, but so far, his mentions haven't been too insane. And you're the head of the U.S.?

"The audience who sees Ball on TV now might not follow basketball or the Balls and probably wouldn't buy the shoes anyway", he said. "Ungrateful fool!", Trump tweeted.
