LaVar Ball has been in an off-and-on public dispute with Donald Trump since Ball refused to thank the president for his role in helping his son LiAngelo avoid shoplifting charges in China. Heck, even LiAngelo thanked Trump when he gave a speech apologizing for his actions. But apparently the younger Ball’s expression of gratitude was not exactly genuine. LiAngelo told “The Breakfast Club” on 105.1 FM Wednesday that he only thanked Trump because UCLA officials wanted him to. “They wanted to hear that. And he tweeted about it before my speech, so I had to add him in there right before I gave it,” LiAngelo said.
