President Trump has had other, bigger and better things to do lately than continue a Twitter feud with LaVar Ball. Apparently not taking this well, LaVar Ball attempted to re-start the war of words with a tweet on Thursday night.

Ball tweeted an animated pic of himself dunking on President Trump. The president, enraged by the animated posterization, then takes out his phone and tweets:

The animated episode seems rather well done, professional and detailed. That would make you believe that Ball spent actual money having this done. Which, indicates a certain level of sadness and insecurity.

LaVar Ball’s son, LiAngelo, and two other players were arrested in China in November for shoplifting. After President Trump spoke with Chinese President Xi Jinping, the players were released and thanked Trump for his efforts.

However, LaVar Ball disputed that Trump had any role in gaining the players release, citing his own “boots on the ground” as being responsible for winning their freedom. That claim sparked a Twitter war of words between the elder Ball, and Trump.

That war of words had cooled in recent weeks, until Thursday night.
