LaVar Ball fires back at Trump in heated CNN interview

The rapper went on an tirade against the nation's leader following Trump's tweets taking aim at Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch for standing for the Mexican national anthem, despite protesting the American national anthem.

He's talking about Ball's refusal to thank the President for helping get his son LiAngelo out of a Chinese jail where he was locked up for shoplifting.

"Mr. Trump, I know you're upset", Colbert joked Monday night, "but maybe now's not the time to be implying that someone's kid should go to jail for what their dad did". Don't tell me nothing. China told them why they were released. LaVar Ball has refused to thank Trump. "If he thinks it, that's fine", he said.

Ball suggested that he and Chinese president Xi Jinping had more to do with securing his son's release than the president. He's in China. He's the president of China", Ball said, later adding: "I helped my son get out of China.

I'm not entirely sure, but I think Snoop Dogg is not a fan of Donald Trump.

"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".

"Somebody told me about the tweet a couple days ago. I don't even tweet", Ball told CNN. I don't know what it is, I don't know, North Korea, trade pacts - there just has to be something, it just can't be at the top of your priority list, I wouldn't think. "If you went to visit them in jail, then I would say, 'Thank you'". He later asked, "Why would I be in war with a guy ... the most powerful man in the world?" "I had some people who had boots on the ground that knew the situation when we first jumped on it".

"I can't hear you". Trump told the three Bruins, who have been suspended indefinitely by their basketball program.
