Trump Continues To Rage About LaVar Ball

The Washington Post reports:

President Trump began the day before Thanksgiving on Twitter, calling out those who he claims have not, in fact, given him their proper thanks.

His target, again: LaVar Ball, who Trump had previously called “very ungrateful” for the president’s help in resolving a shoplifting charge in China for his son, LiAngelo, and two other University of California at Los Angeles basketball players.

It had been nearly two full days since Trump last mentioned the elder Ball by name — and in the intervening hours, Ball had been on CNN, saying that he had nothing to be thankful for when it came to his son and his president.

The final tweet below was retweeted by Trump today.

  • Christopher

    When Cheetolini finally shuffles off this mortal coil, I’ll be thankful.

    Seriously, that man is just not right in the noggin.

  • JoeMyGod
  • hdtex
  • Gustav2

    That is the problem with America, not thankful enough to the whitie saviors.

    • Gustav2

      Maybe we should make more movies with whitie saviors of people of color!

  • Boreal

    Just have a fucking stroke already, you fat POS. Also someone who wears a taxidermied ferret on their head doesn’t get to make fun of other peoples hair.

    • Reality.Bites

      Hey there, my father’s had two strokes and I wouldn’t wish that on Trump.

      And by “that” I mean my father’s recoveries.

      Let’s have no more wishing of recoverable illnesses on Trump.

      • Oscarlating Wildely

        I agree, and let us pity the taxidermied ferret. Surely, it did nothing to be forced into such a sad state– by which I mean of course sitting on Trump’s head, not being taxidermied; it’s an art I hear.

      • Robincho

        The operative word being, presumably, “recoverable”…

      • Todd20036

        I would. If your father had Obamacare insurance, there’s a real chance he’d be bankrupt by now.
        Would you wish Adolf Hitler a long life?
        Be very careful about wishing decent health on someone who really would authorize camps for us.

    • lattebud

      I”d rather see him impeached, all his lies and dirt dragged out into the spotlight during the investigation and his fortune taken from him and used to support the less fortunate that he hates so much

      • Boreal

        Those things could still happen after a stroke. A boy can wish.

      • StraightGrandmother

        I hope we all get to see the sex tape, this man must have a micro penis.

        I long for the day he is put up to public shame and ridicule and he can’t lie his way out of it, the camera doesn’t lie.

    • Lantor

      Didn’t he ask the White House chefs to make his food like McDonalds? I’d support the president on this move!

  • JoeMyGod
    • Buford

      Also in Trump’s comments was the dysfunctional declaration that this is ‘a special time’ for women because their stories of harassment and assault are finally being told and that’s a good thing for America, but if the accused harasser-assaulter denies the allegations we are obligated to accept the denials at face value.

      • DesertSun59

        In the meantime, fully supports Moore in AL.

        • Buford

          Yep… and as I explained previously, if Trump’s agenda is so divisive and partisan that its existence is dependent upon which party controls a single Senate seat in Alabama… a seat that Republicans would rather give to a child-molesting sexual assaulter than allow it to be won by a Democrat… then maybe that hyper-divisive is the real problem here.

          Why not revamp that agenda into something that can be deemed acceptable by a bipartisan super-majority in the Congress…?

          • John Thayer

            We could, if we still voted as our Founders intended. Only White, property owning males could vote. That’s the thinking man’s way.

        Trump keeps that word special, only for the Oval you know.

      • Gustav2

        Now, now, if he used the n-word that would be racist. As long as you don’t use that word, that specific word, nothing you say is racist.

  • Oscarlating Wildely

    “Ungrateful fool!” Gee, what could that be code for?

    This is from the President of the United States. This is how the leader of the “free world” acts. This behavior is now part of discourse of the most powerful person on the planet, at least in terms of being able to blow us into a glowing ember. And his followers see nothing wrong with it.

    • JCF

      His followers WORSHIP it. Seriously, to them, it’s one of his most BELOVED qualities: “He hates the same people I do!”*

    • JaniceInToronto

      As a non-U.S. person, I can say your country is beginning to be seen as an asylum for really dangerous people who have way too much power.

    • RoFaWh

      He probably has paid operatives out right now scouring thrift shops far and wide for medals.

      Of course, he’s so stupid that he’ll make the Michael Jackson mistake of thinking they’re just glittery decorations, then get all surprised (and very hostile) when informed that he has no legal right to wear them because he didn’t earn them.

      Sort of like that Purple Heart that foolish vet gave him, except so far he hasn’t been so crass as to wear it in public. In private? Well, that’s another matter.

  • Buford

    Keep this assholery in mind the next time someone loses their job for flipping the finger at Trump. Never before has a US president been so dickish, critical, and insulting to specific, named US citizens. The citizens have the right be critical and insulting right back at him without fear of losing their jobs for being ‘too political’.

    This is new territory, and it’s humiliating.

    • JCF

      The really sad thing, it’s NOT new: it’s exactly who he’s been, unchanged, since he announced (for the Presidency of the United States of America) in 2015. An Electoral College “majority” voted for it, and a hard third of the American electorate STILL loves it. Let’s just hope that (despite Mueller) that hard third—with voter suppression, w/ continuing Russian interference, w/ fake news—isn’t enough to KEEP him President…

      • Buford

        Re-read my comment. It’s new for a US president to publicly criticize and insult innocent citizens by name. I wasn’t suggesting that this dickishness is new behavior for Trump.

        • RoFaWh

          A bevy of lawsuits for defamation of character, slander, and/or libel might shut Trump up, even if they can’t be pursued further than filing while he is president.

  • romanhans

    LaVar Ball IS just like Don King!

    They both have crazy hair. No, that’s wrong.
    They’re both fight promoters — no.
    They’re both really involved in basketball. Uh-huh.
    They both are involved in their sons’ careers. Wait, no.
    They both threatened athletes to get signed as their managers. Nope.

    Hm. I got nothing.

So, please just GFY.

        • John Thayer

          President Trump won the popular vote in 30 out of 50 the states, he won the majority of the Congressional districts, the counties and the precincts. All Shillery won was the raw vote tally, do solely to Democrat vote packing in heavily minority urban areas. Look at the map. America is Red!

          • ZRAinSWVA

            Now, now. Please try to find a map that overlays vote counts with population. Tis true that rural america tends to vote rethuglican, and in many states rural is all you’ve got (except for those blue ‘dots’ on your map that represent urban centers). Rural americans tend to be less educated and more religious. THAT’s why they vote the way they do.

          • Acronym Jim

            Not to mention that the entire state of Vermont is apparently now a “heavily minority urban area.”

   More and more evidence has come to light showing that our democracy has been stolen. Our votes not counted honestly and correctly.

          • clay

            Turmp won a simple majority in most of the arbitrarily and anachronistically drawn states and counties, as well as the gerrymandered Congressional districts and precincts. The “packing” of the Democratic voters into a minority of districts is due to GOP gerrymandering. Hillary won the majority of the US vote, she won in areas that are home to an even greater proportion of the US economy, she won the areas that are home to the majority of US children, and she won the areas of that are the home of most US businesses and business start-ups.

            What you are claiming is that Trump won the majority of white men, ya racist, misogynist FUCK! Sorry to burst your little bubble (and I do mean little, small, narrow, fragile film), but the 14th Amendment is JUST as much a part of the Constitution as the rest of it. Those “minorities” ARE real Americans. Women ARE real Americans, Children ARE real Americans. Active duty military (not just rural retirees) ARE real Americans.

  • Yalma Cuder-Zicci

    I think some of Trump’s tweets are off the cuff, but this one reeks of being crafted to outrage and distract. He was probably snickering and thinking, “Oh, this will really rile them up. Tee hee.”

    • Jefe5084

      I think you are right. He does that type of calculated tweet fairly frequently. I wonder if Bannon or his other cohorts tell him what to tweet to piss his non-base off. Much of what he does (the elephant stuff, national parks and monumnets, immigrants, DACA, seem to me, to be just that. “Let’s piss them off.”

      • Yalma Cuder-Zicci

If they’re not going to hold him responsible for the real issues that face this country they shouldn’t be covering the petty emotional knee jerk responses this so called leader spews out daily either. I just can’t help but feel we might be riding a runaway train headed for a bridge that’s out over a very deep abyss that could lead to the destruction of this country.

    Me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me.

    Disgusting. As usual.

    He does know that this sort of thing is pretty much de rigueur for the office of the president, doesn’t he?

    As a wise person once told me, “Don’t expect to be praised for doing something you should normally be doing”.

    I never would have imagined that a person assuming the role of Commander in Chief and president of our country would stoop to this level. With all the incredibly important things associated with that position, he actually takes time out of his day to compose childish tweets like this? And, many Americans actually condone such behavior?? I’m at a loss. Simply at a loss…
