President Donald Trump's Twitter habit has been called into question in the past, but it's been making news recently after he tweeted that he shouldn’t have helped negotiate the release of three college basketball players who were caught shoplifting in China.
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. I should have left them in jail!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 19, 2017
Shoplifting is a very big deal in China, as it should be (5-10 years in jail), but not to father LaVar. Should have gotten his son out during my next trip to China instead. China told them why they were released. Very ungrateful!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 19, 2017
The President accused LaVar Ball, the father of one of the players, of not being appreciative, following an interview with ESPN during which Ball stated:
“Everybody wants to make it seem like [Trump] helped me out. I’ve seen a lot worse things happen than a guy taking some glasses. My son has built up enough character that one bad decision doesn’t define him.”
The same day, President Trump continued his attack of Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona, who was heard over a hot mic saying the Republicans would be “toast” if they stood by President Trump and Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, who has been accused of sexually assaulting several women who were underage at the time.
Sen. Jeff Flake(y), who is unelectable in the Great State of Arizona (quit race, anemic polls) was caught (purposely) on “mike” saying bad things about your favorite President. He’ll be a NO on tax cuts because his political career anyway is “toast.”— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 19, 2017
The series of tweets led Fox host Neil Cavuto to attack the President on his show...
“Forget about either comment not being presidential,” Cavuto said. “At what point does the president see such remarks don’t even border on being human? Last time I checked, you are the president of the United States. Why don’t you act like it?"
The segment led to mixed feelings on social media.
We are Fox viewers and my wife and I were very offended by how you addressed the President. It sounded like we were listening to CNN. You owe us and the President an apology.— NIGEL WILKINSON (@NS_Wilkinson) November 20, 2017
We'll said, Neil. This is why I watch you when I can. A dose of common sense goes a long way today.— Jim Dalbec (@JimDalbec) November 21, 2017
Sounds like he'd be better on a reality show than as President. This buffoon represents us on the national stage. He's an embarrassment. 🤦 Being presidential is part of the job of President.— "Translator" 2000 🤔 (@TranslatorBot2k) November 21, 2017
