The grudge match between LaVar Ball and President Donald Trump may be hitting new levels.
Ball joined CNN on Monday night for an interview. Sitting in for Don Lemon was Chris Cuomo, and he had no idea what he was in for.
Cuomo tried to grill Ball about Ball’s son, LiAngelo, being arrested along with two other UCLA basketball players for shoplifting while in China on a trip with the basketball team. The three players were eventually released, and the belief is that Trump’s presence in China helped the boys get released without facing charges.
However, while the three players thanked President Trump for helping get them released, father LaVar downplayed Trump’s role in the controversy. The result was Trump calling LaVar out by name on Twitter for not thanking him.
And just like that, LaVar was invited onto CNN to talk about things. And you better believe that LaVar had his gameplan ready. Want to guess what that was? Refusing to say “thank you” to Trump.
