The Oranged-Face Invasion, Donald Trump, has nothing better to do than slang barbs at Big Baller Brand’s impresario, LaVar Ball, in a series of tweets.

If the “tweet” button was like launching a nuclear missile, we would’ve been burned this planet to the ground, thanks to our “president” Donald Trump. In a series of early Wednesday (Nov. 22) tweets, Trump continued his war of words with LaVar Ball, father of LiAngelo Ball, who was arrested for shoplifting in China.

Trump took full credit for intervening on the punishment LiAngelo and two other UCLA men’s basketball players were facing after shoplifting during a team trip to China. Discussing the arrest of the three players with Chinese President Xi Jinping, Trump had tweeted the week prior that he wondered if the players would thank him for speaking on their behalf. They did thank Trump and the U.S. government during a news conference on Nov. 15.

Meanwhile, LaVar has been less complimentary of Trump, wholly downplaying the president’s role on ESPN and challenging Trump to focus on more important things during a CNN interview Monday. Those words along with Trump’s fragile ego, triggered a back-and-forth between Ball and Trump, with the latter criticizing Ball multiple times via social media.

“A poor man’s Don King,” wow… In the words of Keith Boykin, we have a president who won’t make comments on white Americans who insult or demean his presidency (see: Eminem), but will wholly go to war with black folks over the slightest breeze of outspoken disagreement. Can you say not-so-hidden white racist agenda, America?
