Most of us realize the current president is nothing more than a racist, misogynistic, narcissistic, blowhard.
The latest piece of ignorance and pettiness coming out of his mouth has to do with the three UCLA basketball players who were detained in China for shoplifting.
Now, first and foremost, the decision for the players to go shoplifting in China is just plain stupid. However, while what they did was wrong and dumb, it was not worthy of a life sentence, or harsh punishment.
The three players, including the Leangle Ball, the son of America’s most boastful basketball dad, LaVar Ball, were released after spending a few days sequestered in their hotel room.
Of course, the idiot president had to step in and take credit for their release. He said his phone call to the president of China secured their release. And, the idiot president insisted that LaVar thank him for doing his job.
However, Ball refuses to thank him. “I don’t have to go around saying thank you to everybody,” Ball said. He is absolutely right. He owes that man no gratitude.
If the idiot happened to say something that got the kids released, he was only doing his job.
Although he may think is king of the United States, he is really a servant of the United States. The president serves the people of the America. It is his job to work for, and advocate for, Americans.
Only a narcissist would want credit for doing what he was supposed to do.
