LaVar Ball, whose son was facing ten years in a Chinese prison until President Trump intervened, can’t bring himself to say “thank you.” Instead, the self-centered ego…
The father of LiAngelo Ball, one of the three UCLA basketball players who was arrested for shoplifting in China, personally showcases the reason why his son was shoplifting in the first place. It’s because he’s got a rationalizing piece of liberal, entitled trash for a father.
Ignorance, lawlessness and a total lack of respect or appreciation seem to be just some of the elder Ball’s defining characteristics. Judging from his statements, those, combined with extreme arrogance, made him the ideal role model to raise a social misfit and thief.
When asked by ESPN’s Arash Markazi about President Trump’s effort to free the three court-thugs, Ball asked, “Who? What was he over there for? Don’t tell me nothing. Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out.”
That’s because he did help you and your boy out, you ignorant maggot. Everybody recognizes what you refuse to because of your own bigotry or political corruption. Without a timely word from President Trump the’d be learning the Mandarin words for “get off me, I’m not that kind of boy.” The three shoplifters have been suspended from the UCLA basketball program indefinitely, which is expected to mean approximately three games.
And what relevance, exactly, does the purpose of President Trump’s trip to China have to the fact that he helped get the three, who were looking at up to ten years of prison time each, get out of a real jam? The players themselves are more mature than this self-obsessed scumbag, offering their thanks to President Trump upon their arrival on US soil last Wednesday.
UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero said Wednesday that there were also two other stores they stole from on their Chinese crime spree in addition to stealing some expensive Louis Vuitton sunglasses from a shop next to their Hangzhou hotel. They might want to have the maid count the towels in their room and check to see if the batteries are still in the remote.
Presenting a strong argument in favor of single mother parenting, LaVar Ball told ESPN, “As long as my boy’s back here, I’m fine, I’m happy with how things were handled. A lot of people like to say a lot of things that they thought happened over there. Like I told him, ‘They try to make a big deal out of nothing sometimes.'”
Downplaying the significance of what President Trump did for the boys and the magnitude of their offense, Ball said, “I’m from L.A. I’ve seen a lot worse things happen than a guy taking some glasses. My son has built up enough character that one bad decision doesn’t define him. Now if you can go back and say when he was 12 years old he was shoplifting and stealing cars and going wild, then that’s a different thing.”
Ok, Ball, you’re saying that because your son is now older and should know better that his crimes are less significant than they would have been as a preteen? Doesn’t that logic fly in the face of such practices as more lenient treatment for juvenile defenders for the exact opposite reasons? And it wasn’t one bad decision, they stole from at least three stores.
He added, “Everybody gets stuck on the negativity of some things and they get stuck on them too long. That’s not me. I handle what’s going on and then we go from there.”
So he ignores what his son did and doesn’t thank the guy who saved his career and his youth because he’s a white President and that wouldn’t be “hood-cool?” And because there is no rational way to explain the basis for his decision beyond simple bigotry and hatred he makes up that idiotic explanation.
Given his background, the kid will be lucky if he’s not in prison in the US before he graduates. He shouldn’t hold my breath waiting for President Trump to rescue his kid a second time.
