UCLA Player’s Father, LaVar Ball Dismisses Trump As Reason Son Was Released From China Custody

The President helps to speed up the process to help Lavar Ball’s son out of serving ten yrs in a Chinese prison and his response when asked about Trump’s involvement: “Who??

Un-stinkin-believable! So he disses President Trump and downplays the crime. He’d be singing a different tune if Trump had left his son’s rear end in China and at the mercy of China’s “justice” system. Unreal and ungrateful!

LaVar Ball, however, is having exactly none of Trump’s credit-taking.

“Who?” Ball told ESPN’s Arash Markazi when asked about Trump’s involvement in the matter. “What was he over there for? Don’t tell me nothing. Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out.”

The elder Ball also tried to minimize the crime committed by his son and his teammates, who were detained by Chinese authorities after they were caught shoplifting from some high-end stores near the team hotel ahead of UCLA’s season opener in China.

“As long as my boy’s back here, I’m fine,” Ball said. “I’m happy with how things were handled. A lot of people like to say a lot of things that they thought happened over there. Like I told him, ‘They try to make a big deal out of nothing sometimes.’ I’m from L.A. I’ve seen a lot worse things happen than a guy taking some glasses. My son has built up enough character that one bad decision doesn’t define him. Now if you can go back and say when he was 12 years old he was shoplifting and stealing cars and going wild, then that’s a different thing.

Wow, some outstanding family values there and of course I am sarcastic. I guess to LaVar; it’s no big deal for a grown man to steal a pair of sunglasses because at least it’s not as bad as a 12-year-old who steals cars? Oh-kAY! Add ingratitude to that list, wow what a great father figure!

Then these parents wonder how their “children” end up having problems with the police and have protests/riots because the police targeted their little darlings.

Well, they’ve been suspended from their team but with the way the father seems to dismiss this as just a small matter, only time will tell if they have learned their lesson.

LaVar forgets that Barack Obama allowed our Marine to rot in a Mexican prison for 200 days when the parents pleaded with him for help, and none came. You should be so lucky, Sir. Shame on you.
