Trump Wants UCLA Players To Thank Him For Their Freedom

Submitted by: oobaka 1 month ago in News & Politics Sports


ESPN is reporting that there is surveillance footage of Ball and fellow UCLA freshmen players Jalen Hill and Cody Riley shoplifting from three stores inside a retail center near the team hotel in Hangzhou, China. The players have spoken with police and are currently confined to their hotel while the investigation continues.

China’s justice system moves slowly, but its conviction rates are high (as in 99 percent for shoplifting offenses) and the penalties are often stiff. In this case, the players could face up to 10 years in prison. Today, after Trump allegedly made a few phone calls, the three men are back in Los Angeles, and Trump commented on the deal.


I don't think it's asking too much for the three idiots who decided to break the law while in China for a "thank you."  If trump actually did change the course of events and saved these idiots from a lengthy jail term, I think they should get down on their damn knees and thank him a dozen times over for helping them.

And to try and put a racist twist to it is ridiculous. What are the odds of three basketball players being black and the president of the United States being an old white guy?

If you're stupid enough to break the law in an  authoritarian  country i have little sympathy. I hate westerners who think they should get off and get media and diplomaric pressure to do so. Natives dont get that, other citizens of minor countries dont get that. Its arrogance. Your societal standing shouldnt affect your punishment.

when three black guys are caught by Chinese officials red handed, should we say they were black handed or yellow handed ?

If Trump personally made their release happen, then he should be thanked personally.
If Trump White house made it happen, then the White house should be thanked in general, including the president.
If American diplomats made this happen with minimal help from White house, then the government should be thanked in general.

If the Chinese did this so Trump would have a "success" under his belt when he left China  (keep him happy with a cookie) then the Chinese should be thanked.

I really hope this was done with honest conviction - that this release was orchestrated by the Trump White House for the benefit of the kids.  If there was any talk of this being a great diplomatic win for Trump or talk of 'lets do this so we get a great photo op" then  it would simply reinforce my terrible opinion of elected politicians.

So did they get in any punishment what so ever? I'm sure they are sitting out a few games or more but were the charges dropped or did their parents just pay some fines?
