Donald Trump Lashes Out at LaVar Ball and the NFL in Racist Morning Tweetstorm

This morning, Donald Trump woke up to continue demanding that LaVar Ball bow down and be thankful.


It wasn’t the White House, it wasn’t the State Department, it wasn’t father LaVar’s so-called people on the ground in China that got his son out of a long term prison sentence - IT WAS ME. Too bad! LaVar is just a poor man’s version of Don King, but without the hair. Just think LaVar, you could have spent the next 5 to 10 years during Thanksgiving with your son in China, but no NBA contract to support you. But remember LaVar, shoplifting is NOT a little thing. It’s a really big deal, especially in China. Ungrateful fool!

I don’t care if LaVar Ball is a jackass. I don’t care if LaVar Ball sells his shoes for $4000. I don’t care if LaVar Ball eats live kittens on TV. Because LaVar Ball hasn’t turned the commander in chief of the free world into a whining infant demanding that people change his sodden nappy … and like it.

This is utterly disgusting, and represents a new low in Trump’s eternal quest to get lower. If the racist message of Trump’s demand weren’t clear enough, see his next tweet for a reminder of his other great quest to get people to behave the way he thinks they should.

The NFL is now thinking about a new idea - keeping teams in the Locker Room during the National Anthem next season. That’s almost as bad as kneeling! When will the highly paid Commissioner finally get tough and smart? This issue is killing your league! ..…

Trump apparently intended to everyone to connect those dots to “black people don’t act right” as he next he retweeted a post about Ball’s “ungratefulness” in failing to acknowledge that, for all of ten seconds, Trump might have done his job. Since this is the day before Thanksgiving, it seems appropriate to toss Trump a Bible verse.

But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister will be subject to judgment. ... And anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell.
Matthew 5:22
