Donald Trump Vs. Lavar Ball Is the Rivalry We Deserve in 2017

 In Humor, News, Politics

In case you missed it, LiAngelo Ball, and a couple of other UCLA basketball players were arrested last week. Apparently, they practiced some casual shoplifting in China. I’m not sure what inspires a man to think stealing shit in a foreign country is a good idea, but here we are. This incident set up one of the most ridiculous rivalries to come across my news feed in a long time: Donald Trump vs. LaVar Ball.

Courtesy of CNN:

President Donald Trump on Sunday shot back at Lavar Ball, the father of one of the UCLA basketball players arrested in China, for belittling the President’s role in the students’ release.

“Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal,” Trump tweeted. “I should have left them in jail!”
Damn, Trump ain’t playing around. You’re ungrateful to Trump? He’ll leave your ass sitting in a Chinese prison for 10 years! How do you think the Ball boys really feel about their pops? I mean, he’s the only mouth I can think of that can rival Trump’s. You think ‘spouting off at the President after he helped get you out of a Chinese prison,’ is bad, just imagine the things we don’t know about.
Days after Trump touted his involvement in the release of three students who were arrested in China on suspicion of shoplifting, Ball suggested the President had little to do with the matter.
“Who?” Ball told ESPN when asked about Trump’s role in the situation. “What was he over there for? Don’t tell me nothing. Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out.”
Trump’s social media director, Dan Scavino, fired back at Ball on his personal Twitter account Saturday afternoon, saying Ball’s son, LiAngelo, “would be in China for a long, long, long time” without the President’s assistance.
“Wannabe @Lakers coach, BIG MOUTH @Lavarbigballer knows if it weren’t for President @realDonaldTrump, his son would be in China for a long, long, long time! #FACT,” Scavino wrote.
This is madness! Folks, this is where we’re at in 2017. As a society, we’re honed in on a spat between our wild card President and some wannabe reality star. Don’t you think we kind of deserve this? I don’t want to get too deep here…I mean, bullshit like this is perfect for our web site. But, this is one of those things that also makes me a little sad as well. I wish Ball would just go away. The shtick has run its course. I could actually say the same thing for our President….and I don’t know what that says about either guy. Maybe just stay off Twitter for a bit.
Still, with all that in mind, I think there’s only one place to settle all of this: a WWE ring. Trump’s a WWE Hall of Famer, but lest we forget, Ball made an electric appearance on Monday Night Raw over the summer. If I’m an oddsmaker in Vegas, I think I’m listing Ball the favorite in a literal street fight. I don’t know how well Trump can scrap, but I’d be willing to bet Ball could drop him relatively easy.
OOOO – even better. I just thought of the stipulation. The loser of this fight has to spend the next 10 years in a Chinese prison.
