LaVar Ball goes on CNN to talk about President Donald Trump and the Internet goes nuts

LaVar Ball joined CNN for a live interview with anchor Chris Cuomo on Monday night to discuss his recent controversy with President Donald Trump, which escalated Sunday when President Trump tweeted out several remarks about Ball’s recent comments about the President’s involvement with getting Ball’s son LiAngelo and two other UCLA basketball players out of jail in China. The trio of UCLA players were detained and arrested for shoplifting in China earlier this month.

Here is a little taste of Monday night’s interview:

LaVar Ball on why he didn’t thank President Trump for bringing his son, LiAngelo Ball, home: “I would’ve said thank you if he would’ve put him on his plane and took him home. … There’s a lot of room on that plane”

LaVar Ball, father of UCLA player LiAngelo Ball, says he did more to help his son than President Trump: “I helped my son get out of (China). … I had some people that had boots on the ground that knew the situation”
