Master P Says "God Would Like It" If LaVar Ball Thanked Trump

'So first of all, his father (LaVar Ball) is a tall black man and I think Trump is half awed and half frightened by black people and his only way of dealing with them is to attack them'. Greg Sargent, political writer for the Washington Post, argued Trump "goes out of his way to attack prominent African Americans", casting the feud as evidence of racism.

'They were headed for 10 years in jail!,' he added. "I think he has a zero tolerance for any criticism of any kind, that's why he goes after anybody who says virtually anything about him that's negative", Schwartz said.

On the other hand, Schwartz said, "if [Trump] felt fear, he always felt aggression", which Schwartz uses to explain why Trump also felt "a need to put them down".

"Trump's rage-tweets about LaVar Ball are part of a pattern", Sargent tweeted to his 164,000 followers Wednesday. Trump added that LaVar Ball was a "fool" and that the release of the UCLA players was "a really big deal". Mr Trump claimed he played a pivotal role in securing the younger Mr Ball's release, but his father downplayed the President's role in an interview with ESPN.

Ball has refused to thank Trump despite the fact his son LiAngelo and the other UCLA players did, sparking a full-scale war of words between the Big Baller and #45.

And although the players themselves expressed gratitude to the president at a news conference, LaVar Ball minimized Trump's involvement in the matter.

President Trump started Thursday morning by tweeting at a liberal columnist who had slammed Trump's attacks on African Americans.

Three players were arrested and accused of shoplifting from a Louis Vuitton store while the UCLA basketball team was on a trip to China for its season-opening game. That wasn't the thought process, right?

In his Twitter posts, Trump also said, "Lavar, you could have spent the next 5 to 10 years during thanksgiving with your son in China, but no National Basketball Association contract to support you".

"It wasn't the White House, it wasn't the State Department, it wasn't the supposed men and women on the ground or even LaVar in China who got his son out from an extended jail sentence. You want me to thank you?" said Ball.

"You embarrassed your families, you embarrassed the country, and you embarrassed the president".
