Now Donald's upset that LaVar isn't kissing his ass.

Donald, LaVar. LaVar, Donald.

Donald J. Trump‏ @realDonaldTrump 28 minutes ago

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!

And the winner is... Big Baller Brand. Well trolled, Mr. Ball.

Shoplifting is a very big deal in China, as it should be (5-10 years in jail), but not to father LaVar. Should have gotten his son out during my next trip to China instead. China told them why they were released. Very ungrateful!

Neither do I. I blame the people who don't hold him to a higher standard than getting into a twitter battle with the one of the biggest clowns in the world. On the other hand, Trump supporters should hold him to a higher standard, as well.

More tweets

and so the news cycle of the trump's feud with LaVar Ball begins

Lavar vs Trump. The world needs this feud.

Christ, he's going to start a feud with LaVar Ball to pick up his ratings. We've hit peak 2017 idiocy.

If LaVar Ball gets our president to fight with him via Twitter instead of nuclear-supplied world leaders, he should win the Nobel Peace Prize. I think I'm kidding, but I'm not sure.

This is your moment, Lavar. Shoot your shot. But like shoot it like a shooter and not Lonzo.

Hard to say which is more ridiculous:
-Trump picking a fight with Lavar Ball by name.
-Trump saying American citizens should have been left in Chinese jail
-Trump thinking he alone could decide whether they stayed in Chinese jail or not

You don’t have to like that he tweeted this but he is 100% correct. LaVar Ball is a total ingrate whose son could have spent years in a Chinese labor camp.

LaVar Ball trolled the President of the United States into mentioning him by name. I mean, just think about that.

LaVar Ball's response will determine whether I buy some Big Baller shoes this week

Strike up another victory for Big Baller Brand. The more hype, the merrier. A Donald Trump vs LaVar Ball beef truly defines America in 2017. Can't believe it took this long.

LaVar vs Trump already better than the Mayweather Pacman hype

I'm so here for Trump to live tweet Laker games when Lonzo shoots 1-10. "Lavar should be thanking the Lakers for paying his son anything. Very bad shooter. I'll be looking into BBB. $500 shoes are very unfair."

I’ll be the first to tell you Lavar annoying as hell at times. But that man and his family do not deserve any of what’s about to happen. The president of the United States just called him ungrateful. Fox News about to go wild on this. Terrifying

America cannot survive an endless Trump/LaVar Ball flame war. It cannot.

It's the ultimate battle of "even bad press is good press." The two biggest trolls are finally going at it.

Paging Doctor Howard, Doctor Fine, Doctor Ball.

Where you at, LaVar? The silence isn't like you.

And of course Don took the bait.

It wasn’t the White House, it wasn’t the State Department, it wasn’t father LaVar’s so-called people on the ground in China that got his son out of a long term prison sentence - IT WAS ME. Too bad! LaVar is just a poor man’s version of Don King, but without the hair. Just think..

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump 6 hours ago
...LaVar, you could have spent the next 5 to 10 years during Thanksgiving with your son in China, but no NBA contract to support you. But remember LaVar, shoplifting is NOT a little thing. It’s a really big deal, especially in China. Ungrateful fool!

David Frum has the best perspective.

They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.
