LaVar Ball responds to Trump, wishes him a 'great Thanksgiving'

LaVar Ball responds to Trump, wishes him a 'great Thanksgiving'

"I think it's very possible that he accidentally replied, but it seems this would mean that at a minimum, he probably saw the tweet", Sargent said in an email. "Trump regularly attacks high-profile African Americans to feed his supporters' belief that the system is rigged for minorities". "I need to go over and get them.' That wasn't the thought process", Ball told CNN.

For his part, Trump was up bright and early Thanksgiving morning, tweeting in response at 3:31 a.m., "MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!"

The epic, ongoing feud between President Donald Trump and media personality LaVar Ball over a perceived slight has drawn global attention and has been a trending topic for about a week. It's a really big deal, especially in China.

President Trump responded to what he saw as Ball minimizing his role in the release of his son, tweeting at the crack of dawn that Ball was an "ungrateful fool" and a "poor man's Don King", adding that "IT WAS ME", who helped secure the release.

Michael D'Antonio, the biographer who wrote "The Truth About Trump", said the President purposefully chooses black athletes as targets for his anger.

Lavar Ball has caught some flack from people for his recent interview with CNN on Trump's attack on him.

Trump raised the arrests during a two-day state visit to Beijing, arriving after the three freshman players were accused of stealing sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton store next to the team's hotel.

"Who?" he told ESPN when asked about Trump's role in the situation days after their release. "Too bad! LaVar is just a poor man's version of Don King, but without the hair", Trump tweeted this week.

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". Trump claimed he was responsible for getting the incident resolved and the players back home.

The attention from the president early Thursday morning was a "jarring wake-up call", Sargent added, but so far, his mentions haven't been too insane.

He acknowledges that Lavar Ball is vocal about his opinions but he still thinks the President's help should be acknowledged in some for of gratitude.
