It’s come down to this: The president of the United States, the commander in chief of the world’s mightiest military machine, is waging a war of words/wits with a loudmouth father of sons who aspire to athletic greatness.
That’s right. Donald John Trump and LaVar Ball are going back and forth via Twitter.
This is how the Leader of the Free World chooses to spend some of his time. He calls Ball “an ungrateful fool” because Ball said the president didn’t do what he said he did to obtain the freedom of one of Ball’s sons, who got caught shoplifting in China.
The president has made a stupid feud even more stupid by his engaging this blowhard bozo in a Twitter feud.
I know the president is hopelessly addicted to Twitter. I won’t call on him to quit engaging in this kind of petulance. He’s acting like an overgrown, overhyped pubescent punk. He can’t help himself.
The man is diminishing the high office to which he was elected.
But … he “tells it like it is.”
