President Donald Trump‘s spat with an American citizen reached a fevered slope on Wednesday morning, as he took time to call Lavar Ballan’ heedless fool.’

Ball–in case you’ve made the week off and have ignored this unnecessary imbroglio–is the leader of Liangelo Ball, a UCLA basketball player who was arrested with two teammates in China for shoplifting( One of Ball’s other sons, Lonzo, plays for the Los Angeles Lakers ).

Trump began the morning before Thanksgiving by taunting Ball, saying if it wasn’t for him, Lavar would have expended his celebrations over the next decade calling “their childrens” in jail, while also announcing him a poverty-stricken man’s Don King. He also took two seconds out to discredit the State Department as well as his own White House.

The fight between the chairman and the first family of basketball began in earnest over the weekend. During his swing through Asia last week, the president spoke with Chinese President Xi Jinping to intervene on behalf of the UCLA players, curing secure their handout. After they returned to the U.S ., Trump knocked off the fight by requiring gratitude for his efforts.

The musicians thanked Trump in a news conference, saying they “appreciated” him helping out, but Liangelo’s father then said in his own interview that he didn’t want to credit the president for their release.

“Did he help the sons get out? I don’t know. If I was going to thank somebody, I’d perhaps thank President Xi, ” Ball said. “He’s the president in China. Someone can make a suggestion and somebody can do something.”

Trump responded by saying he should have left the players in jail.

In a press briefing at the White House after his tweets, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, when pulped, told the journalist that the president was simply being rhetorical.

Trump concluded this morning’s fibre of tweets by retweeting a Twitter user who said he detested Hillary Clinton but had she done something on his behalf he would have” her corrupt ass .”
