If you thought Donald Trump can’t let go of things, meet LaVar Ball.
Ball posted an animated gif on social media Thursday showing the boss of the Big Baller Brand posterizing the president.
Trump called Ball an “ungrateful fool” for not thanking him after the president had helped get his son, LiAngelo, and two other UCLA basketball players released from China after the trio were nabbed for shoplifting last month.
“It wasn’t the White House, it wasn’t the State Department, it wasn’t father LaVar’s so-called people on the ground in China that got his son out of a long term prison sentence — IT WAS ME,” Trump tweeted. “Too bad! LaVar is just a poor man’s version of Don King, but without the hair.”
Trump got his thanks from LiAngelo and the other two players, but not from LaVar.
“Who?” LaVar Ball asked ESPN on Nov. 17 when asked about Trump. “What was he over there for? Don’t tell me nothing. Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out.”
In posting the “thetrumpdunk” gif, LaVar told the Tweeter-in-Chief to “stayinyolane.”
Your ball, Mr. President.
