LaVar Ball fires back at Trump in heated CNN interview

LaVar Ball fires back at Trump in heated CNN interview

Don't tell me nothing.

Colbert said in response: "Pretending not to know him is the meanest thing you can do to Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpO'Malley tells Dems not to fear Trump Right way and wrong way Five things to know about the elephant trophies controversy MORE". After Trump, who aided in the athletes' release, felt he wasn't properly thanked by Ball, he tweeted about how he should've left the players in jail. "Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out". "They were headed for 10 years in jail", Trump tweeted.

LaVar Ball is attempting to build an empire around the basketball skills of his three sons - Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo, LiAngelo and prep prospect LaMelo - and his own bombastic personality. All three apologized for their actions and thanked Trump for his role in securing their release, which occurred while the president was traveling in Asia.

Ball didn't think he was criticizing the president with his initial remarks. They held a press conference shortly afterwards, during which they thanked the president for his role in helping them return home.

The next day, Trump said "You're welcome" to the players on Twitter, adding that they owed Chinese President Xi Jinping thanks, as well.

During his late-night show, Colbert also mocked Trump for asking for praise, calling for people to imagine what Thanksgiving is like with Trump. He said Americans should be ashamed of Trump. "Come on", Ball said. I don't know what it is, I don't know, North Korea, trade pacts - there just has to be something, it just can't be at the top of your priority list, I wouldn't think. "There's a lot of other things that's going on. Let him do his political affairs and let me handle my son, and let's just stay in our lane". "I wouldn't have thanked the motherf**ker either".

Ball's son, LiAngelo Ball, was detained trying to leave China when he and two other players were reportedly caught shoplifting. "I don't even tweet", Ball told CNN. I don't have to go around saying, 'Thank you, ' to everybody.

"Did he [Trump] help the boys get out?"
