Trump Supporters Are Coming For LeVar Burton Thinking He's LaVar Ball

President Donald Trump reportedly provided a whirlwind of free advertising for LaVar Ball in their back-and-forth feud.

President Trump has been on the wrong end of some harsh words this week for his petty Twitter response over not getting a thank you from LaVar Ball for allegedly helping spring his son and two other UCLA basketball players from a Chinese jail after they were accused of shoplifting. You have people that make suggestions you got people that do things. "You gotta just be humble".

"After comparing the ungrateful Ball to Don King, the colorful former boxing promoter and Trump supporter, the president continued: "...

"A billion dollars, it has to be there", Ball told USA Today in the spring.

Since the feud, Ball has been the subject of jokes on NBC's famed comedy show "Saturday Night Live".

"Both", replied Schwartz. "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". "If exposure is half the problem, then I think it's got to help".

Many people have opinions about the current president, but few of them can say that they actually have any idea how his brain really works. He went on to call Ball an "ungrateful fool".

He also warned that Mr Ball "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" had it not been for his intervention.

"That's just him, he always talk wild", the rapper added of LaVar Ball's personality.

"Ball also pushed back against Trump's suggestion that shoplifting "is a very big deal in China". But and at another point, he appeared to excuse the criminal behavior because the Chinese saw that his son "has so much character".

Perhaps predictably, Trump has been criticized for getting into another Twitter war.

Some people are confusing him with Ball.
