Trump's Latest Tweet Actually Is Coherent; It's Just Insanely Pathetic

If you don’t follow sports-ball much, or keep up with ESPN/Bleacher Report, etc., this Donald Trump tweet may have gone completely over your head:

What? Did Trump’s brain break? Huh? Is that some kind of racist word salad? WHAT IS GOING ON?

OK, well. There is an explanation. Three UCLA basketball players were arrested in China for allegedly shoplifting a pair of sunglasses. According to Trump, at least, they were facing 10 years in prison. Thankfully, UCLA, the Chinese hosts, the state department and apparently even Donald Trump intervened to help the three basketball players gain their release and return home.

For that, Donald Trump is using Twitter to preemptively berate the three basketball players — LiAngelo Ball (Lonzo’s brother), Cody Riley and Jalen Hill — before they’ve had a chance to say thank you, because Trump desperately craves validation, he doesn’t expect it here, and he wants all the credit.
