Monday on Fox Sports 1’s “Undisputed,” host Shannon Sharpe sided with President Donald Trump after the president lamented working with Chinese government to get three UCLA basketball players released after they were detained on shoplifting charges because LaVar Ball, the father of one of the players, acted like Trump played no role in his son’s release.
“Who?” Ball responded when he was asked by ESPN about Trump’s involvement in his son’s release.
Sharpe said even people who dislike Trump would agree with him in his feud with Ball.
“I can assure you even the people that dislike President Trump the most would agree that LaVar Ball is wrong in this situation. I guarantee you that,” Sharpe told co-host Skip Bayless. “Now, you might dislike what he’s done, what he’s said and who he is, but he had some effect on these kids coming home.”
Sharpe then said that if Ball’s “kleptomaniac son” would not have been taking stuff in China, this conversation would not be happening.
“If your son would have kept his sticky ass fingers in his pockets and not take people’s stuff in China, we wouldn’t even be having this conversation. So, you talk about ‘who?’ — your kleptomaniac son is who!” he exclaimed.
