On Sunday, President Trump tweeted, "Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal". It's a problem that LaVar Ball who said on CNN "Why are we talking about this with all these political matters going on in the world?" actually sounds more Presidential than the President. F**k you. I'm with Marshawn Lynch, n***a.
In an interview with CNN Monday, LaVar Ball defended his son's actions and talked around thanking the President.
I got the sense Cuomo was struggling to keep a straight face at times as they sparred, repeatedly talking over one another.
And although the players themselves expressed gratitude to the President at a news conference, LaVar Ball minimized Trump's involvement in the matter.
However, all of the players did thank Trump.
Like, sure, you don't have to convert to a Trump supporter because he got your son out of jail, but why would you react like that to a president that just secured the release of your kid from a foreign prison. Trump also wrote, "I should have left them in jail". And you're the head of the U.S.?
At one point, Mr Ball seemed to suggest that he had personally played a role in his son's release.

Late in the third quarter, Wisconsin redshirt junior linebacker Andrew Van Ginkel smoked Peters into the ground on third down. The Wisconsin rushing offense is formidable, especially with freshman Jonathan Taylor , who is averaging 7 yards per carry.
"Do I think the president helped?" There's a lot of other things that's going on. Donald Trump's game is LaVar Ball's game.
Mr. Trump exploded on social media over the weekend after hearing of the elder Ball's reactions to his diplomatic efforts.
Then, Trump called for the NFL to suspend Lynch, a running back for the Oakland Raiders, after he sat for the US national anthem while standing for the Mexican national anthem during a game in Mexico City. And why? Because one of their fathers perpetrated the ultimate crime against Trump - not stroking his ego.
"I can assure you President Trump mentioning [the detainment] to the Chinese President didn't hurt his situation".
Clearly, Ball thinks Trump did nothing special.
