The President clearly wasn't thrilled by Ball's comments Friday, when the loud-mouthed basketball father of UCLA freshman LiAngelo Ballsaid he didn't think Trump did all that much to help get his son and two teammates out of a shoplifting incident in China.
Trump, apparently sore about something said by a celebrity the rest of us have long ago learned to ignore, then said he should have left the UCLA players in jail, which is of course extremely presidential.
The younger Ball - whose brother Lonzo plays for the LA Lakers in the National Basketball Association - along with fellow freshmen Jalen Hill and Cody Riley, aren't with the rest of the Bruins, who are in Kansas City to play in the Hall of Fame Classic on Monday and Tuesday.

Trump, apparently insecure about approval ratings, asked whether the players would thank him. Like I told him, 'They try to make a big deal out of nothing sometimes.' I'm from L.A. I've seen a lot worse things happen than a guy taking some glasses.
At a press conference after their return, all three players had individually thanked Trump, and initially, Trump seemed to acknowledge the players' gratitude. The team's head coach, Steve Alford, later announced the trio was suspended indefinitely.

Asked later in the day whether he was anxious about his son, LaVar replied, according to ESPN: "He'll be fine, he'll be fine". UCLA coach Steve Alford said he will leave the three players out for this weekend's game against Georgia Tech in Shanghai.
