Tomi Lahren takes on the outrage over President Trump's tweet toward LaVar Ball, the father of one of the UCLA basketball players arrested in China.
Okay, it’s time for Final Thoughts and breaking news: Trump tweets and the mainstream media falls all over itself.
Imagine that. It all started when 3 UCLA basketball players decided to steal designer sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton store while their team was in China.
Now that’s just pathetic on its own, but instead of rotting in a Chinese prison, they are back in cushy California.
How? Donald Trump is how.
But basketball equivalent of a Kardashian-Father of the Year - LaVar Ball - didn’t see it that way.
See, LaVar Ball doesn’t seem to think Donald Trump was much of a help and LaVar Ball also doesn’t think shoplifting is a big deal. Well Mr. Ball, maybe not in cushy California but in China, it is.
I guess LaVar Ball is not familiar with the case of Otto Warmbier, an American student in North Korea who was tortured and later died after being detained on charges that he tried to steal a poster from his hotel.
Mr. Ball, your klepto kid doesn’t have to worry about that because Donald Trump personally stepped in and made sure he got home.
I know it would absolutely kill you to give the president some credit, but he saved your son’s butt, so just a little bit of gratitude would be awesome.
I guess that’s too much to ask though, right? This is just another instance in a series of BS where Donald Trump is damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t.
Can you imagine what they would have said if Trump hadn't stepped in?
Oh, the race card would’ve been slapped down so hard our ears would still be ringing.
But he did, and y’all are still not happy and you’re still slapping down the race card! Why? Because Trump sent off another mean tweet.
Get over it. It’s a freakin’ tweet. What are you gonna do about it? Scream at the sky again? Make a sign and stand outside of Trump tower during traditional working hours, again? Wear a dumb hat and resist, again?
Go for it!
His tweets offend you, we get it. It’s not “presidential,” we get it.
Well here’s the cold hard truth, we had a “presidential” president for 8 years and it got us nowhere.
Look at diplomatic relations under Obama. All of our enemies got stronger and we kicked our allies, especially Israel, square in the face.
That was President Obama being “presidential. That’s what 8 years of bowing to the world and apologizing for America looks like.
Well the apology tour is over and if your biggest issue with Trump is what he tweets, I think your little snowflake heart will be just fine.
Trump is Trump and I’ve got news for you, he’s not changing. He's effective and quite frankly, he gets a kick out of watching mainstream leftist media hacks lose their minds each time he lays down 280 characters.
If the American people wanted a limp noodle in office we would have voted for low-energy Jeb or full-blown Democrat John Kasich.
Yet, here we are. If Trump didn’t tweet, half of you “journalists” would have to research real stories so thank your lucky stars you just get to sit back and scroll through Twitter and wait to be offended.
Those are my Final Thoughts. From LA, God Bless and take care.
