    Trump says he 'should have left American basketball players arrested in China in jail'
    The President attacks a player's father for being 'unaccepting of what I did for his son'


    President Donald Trump has suggested that he should have left three American basketball players imprisoned in China because he did not like the comments made by one of their parents.

    "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," Mr Trump tweeted. "I should have left them in jail!"

    I would have been ok with if it was Lavar Ball who he wanted to leave in China, but it wasn't.

    As a Laker fan, I kind of wish it was Lonzo that was in jail in China and that Trump had left him there
    "Discipleship is not a spectator sport. We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf

    I had zero clue you were a Lakers fan. China would've let those guys go without Trump. I have a colleague who used to work for the State Department in Shanghai, a big part of his responsibilities were getting Americans out of jail. He said the only times it was impossible was when violence or narcotics were involved.

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    There's no way Trump did a thing. Seriously. This is right out of his playbook.

    Is there any indication that that is the reason? Because of a personal favor to Trump?

    Well, who knows. But that Trump brought it up indicates to the other side that it is important. For Xi it's a no brainer to respond and let those kids go. Made Trump very happy. Let the kids go, avoid the international scandal of the whole thing, send the problem back to the U.S.

    Agree about xi's interest in letting the high-profile idiots go rather than causing an international incident. Leave it to Trump to swoop in and demand glory for it, though. Can't stand Lavar Ball any more than the next man, but I wouldn't kiss Trump's ass, either. The kids did thank him anyway, iirc.

    One of the worst things for our country under Trump is the complete erosion of the expectation that the presidency shouldn't be a circus of idiots.

    Speaking of, I was a the Supreme Court today (humble brag for lawyers, embarrassing fact for normal people); I think Gorsuch is kind of a dick. I see why Trump choose him.

    The video, which puts his always-patronizing approach on full display, is truly embarrassing. I understand that many like what he has done (or not done) thus far, but how anyone can approve of his manner of speech, texting and demeanor is stupefying.

    Liberals don't like him! So because the political bean counter game is more important the the well-being of the country, it's all good even if Trump is a total horse's behind who is dumber than a pile of rocks.

    And you have to acknowledge if you're honest, that to a significant portion of his hardcore base, he's the perfect reaction to the "disgrace" of our last president having been black.
