‘Lavar is just a poor man’s version of Don King, but without the hair’

Trump launches personal attack on basketball dad as he calls him an ‘ungrateful fool’

    LaVar was interviewed on CNN the other night.

    He’s a complete buffoon.

      A white woman let that inside of her.

    As with so many politicians, we grit our teeth and support the program. And grit out teeth.

  • After Trump is done with politics, we need to hire him as our professional troll.
    OTOH, he would probably do it for free.

    • DVult

      Maybe he could give courses or possibly set up a university dedicated to teaching and awarding degrees in trolling.

    It’s this aspect of Trump’s personality that I find most problematic: his inability to ignore direct or implied criticism and his need to respond in some manner. It’s a way he manages to keep his ego intact, but it is a huge vulnerability once the Democrats and other countries learn to manipulate Trump. Trump is also very susceptible to flattery, which explains some of the people he chooses to surround himself with.

    Having said that I still think he is the best politician – Democrat or Republican, that could be President of the United States at this time.

      I agree with you. Trump needs to learn to remove the buttons that make him jump.

      Truman did the same thing in the pre-computer era. When a critic panned daughter Margaret’s singing, Truman sent the critic as letter threatening to “break your head and kick your nuts off.” Afterwards, he said, “Every father in my position would have said the same thing.”

        Harry got his start in politics as the honest front man for the Irish gangsters who ran Kansas City. He had brought their relatives in his WW1 artillery unit home from the war without losing a man.

      • But then he let go. Once Trump gets an obsession in his head, he returns to it over and over again.

      I like that he shoots back as why should he be wimpy and frankly most of the time he’s right on target and the recipients get what they deserve. All the Lefty public ridicule isn’t having the desired effect.

        Since nobody in the media is willing to say the truth, Trump just shines a flashlight on all the assholes in the world.

          That’s something I won’t be able to forget.

    You shit on the Trumpster’s doorstep after he has done you a
    You can expect a punch in the nose and a kick in the nuts.

      I think they thought black athlete privilege would protect them just like it does back in the States.

      • The players themselves thanked him, though. It is only the father (already well-known to be a jerk) of one of them who refused to do so.

    Money quote.

    “Shaun King, a leftist political activist and writer for The Intercept, asserted Monday in response to a Trump tweet that “ungrateful is the new nigger.”

    Everything Trump said is correct, but sometimes he should keep his mouth shut anyway.

      Why? I love the sound of leftist heads exploding in the morning, it’s the sound of………… Victory..
