Trump Gets Demolished Online For Complaining He’s Not Being Praised By UCLA Basketball Players

Unable to play golf because it was too cold on Sunday, President Trump got stuck on Twitter where he lashed out at the father of a UCLA basketball player for not praising him after getting his son released from shoplifting charges in China.

Trump took credit for their release, and questioned in a tweet whether the players would thank him.

“Do you think the three UCLA Basketball Players will say thank you President Trump? They were headed for 10 years in jail!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

The players subsequently held a press conference last week in which they apologized for the incident and thanked Trump.

But the self-centered president wanted more than just a “thank you.” He wanted to be praised. So he became enraged when LaVar Ball said that the shoplifting arrest in China where involved his son “ain’t that big of a deal.”

Let’s be clear, having your child arrested and thrown in prison in a foreign country is a big deal, but Trump has been acting like getting the UCLA basketball players out of the shoplifting arrest was like freeing the US hostages from Iran.

In political terms, it isn’t that big of a thing. It probably involved someone on the White House staff making a call and reminding the Chinese that sticking three US basketball players in jail for shoplifting isn’t such a bright idea.

Trump doesn’t get the fact that he is a public servant. He works for the American people. The presidency does not work for Donald Trump. The President wasn’t bestowing some great favor on the three basketball players. He was doing his job.

With all of the vital issues facing the country at this moment, Donald Trump is plopped down on his couch and tweeting about how LaVar Ball doesn’t show him enough love.

“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. I should have left them in jail!” Trump tweeted.

Of course, Twitter had some words in response:
