  • La Var Ball father of Los Angeles Lakers' Lonzo Ball and UCLA player Li Angelo Ball watches the Lakers play the Los Angeles Clippers during an NBA summer league basketball game in Las Vegas. President

The tweet came shortly after LaVar Ball, the father of one of the players who was arrested, downplayed the President's role in releasing his son from China.

LOS ANGELES - LaVar Ball downplayed his son's shoplifting incident in China as well as US president Donald Trump's involvement in getting his son and two other UCLA players back to the United States earlier this week.

Trump spends his day farting around the White House, posting insane tweets, insulting his staff, watching the cable news channels, and writing executive orders that are destined to be overturned by the courts. When you gonna get suspended, mother f**ker?

Screenshotting President Trump's retaliatory tweet, Chainz made known his take on the situation.

The players held a news conference after they arrived back in the United States, thanking President Trump, among other parties, for their release. "Do you think Becky will thank me for letting her sit with us at lunch?" Ball maintained that he doesn't "have to go around saying thank you to everybody", while launching into one of the most confusing interviews ever. Then I would have said thank you, Mr. Trump, for taking my boys out of China and bringing them back to the U.S. There's a lot of room on that plane.

On Monday's "Late Show", Colbert joked that LiAngelo's shoplifting scandal is "easily the most scandalous thing to happen in a mall that didn't involve Roy Moore", alluding to the disgraced Alabama Senate candidate's recent ban from an Alabama mall for allegedly hitting on a high-school-age girl.

I got the sense Cuomo was struggling to keep a straight face at times as they sparred, repeatedly talking over one another. It's straight out of the Donald Trump playbook. "And LaVar Ball knows there is no better way to troll Trump than by pretending to not know who he is".

"Not only are these tweets childish and embarrassing, they're also part of a disturbing pattern", Meyers added. "Trump is clearly a thug and a wannabe dictator who lashes out at anyone who isn't sufficiently obedient".

Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill were questioned about allegedly stealing sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton store earlier this month in Hangzhou.
