Trump Shoulda Let B-Ball Shoplifters Rot in China

By Debbie Schlussel

Donald Trump got three lowlife basketball players out of hot water in China. Now he’s whining that they didn’t thank him. But we should be whining that helped these entitled spoiled brats in the first place.



What would you say if three Chinese nationals shoplifted sunglasses in Beverly Hills and we allowed them to leave the country without facing any justice? Well, that’s exactly what China was convinced to do by Donald Trump . . . and now, he’s expecting kudos for that. Instead, he deserves jeers.

Follow Me on Twitter . . .

The three UCLA basketball players–LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley–shoplifted sunglasses at the Louis Vuitton store (and two other stores!) in Hangzhou, China, last week. They were in China for a massive UCLA and college basketball marketing trip. I’m not sure why taxpayer dollars (UCLA is a publicly-funded university) must be wasted to “market” college basketball in a Communist country (or any foreign country), but that’s a topic for another column (though the NBA should’ve paid for the trip, since college basketball is the NBA’s free, tax-funded farm team system).

Nobody ever accused college basketball players of being intellectual giants. But it should be basic common sense not to steal. The players should know that shoplifting is illegal in any country. Name me a country where it’s legal to steal from stores. I mean, don’t steal in a foreign country–especially Communist China–should be a no-brainer. Just as “don’t steal” in America should be a no-brainer.

But these are spoiled brat, entitled college athletes who think they can do whatever they want without consequences. They don’t really have to study in college like real students (they have classes like Toothpick House Building 101 and Introductory Golf), don’t have to worry about paying for school or meals (they get all of this free), don’t have to engage in actual normal social behavior (mindless groupie girls throw themselves into bed with these fellow idiots), etc. They feel everything is owed to them, and they never have to work or try hard for anything.

And, now, they haven’t had to try hard to get out of shoplifting in China, an act which anyone with two brain cells to rub together would know is a no-no. You go to a Communist country of your own free will, you’re a moron. You go to a Communist country and steal (at three different stores!), you’re really a total imbecile. You taunted fate, and you deserve whatever happens to you, without our interference.

I’ve written over and over again about the Americans who travel to Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, then-ISIS-controlled Syria and Iraq, and North Korea. They took their chances being idiots and traveling to these dangerous places where they knew the odds were high that bad stuff would happen. No reason for us to get in the way of these Darwin Award winners meeting natural selection. Sorry.

Yeah, I know that the basketball players could have done up to 10 years hard labor jail time if they were convicted of shoplifting in China. But, so what? No tears from me. Nobody forced them to go to China. Nobody told them to go “shopping” at Louis Vuitton . . . AND at two other stores. And nobody put a gun to their heads to force them to steal . . . at ALL THREE stores. These were all choices they made freely. And they should’ve been forced to face some sort of punishment for their poor, willing choices. Instead, they were “held” in their luxury hotel. And that’s it. There have to be consequences for their actions. But there aren’t any.

If Trump was going to waste political capital on these privileged thugs, he could’ve worked out a deal in which the three did at least a month or two of imprisonment to teach them a lesson–a lesson that they deserved and never got. On the contrary, they were taught that because of who they are, they will never have to face consequences of stupid, criminal behavior. Oh, and by the way–this is yet another example of “White Privilege!” since they are all Black. LiAngelo Ball, by the way, comes from a rich NBA family. I should feel sorry for him that he got caught shoplifting in China? Nope. But like they say, “Black Lives Matter.” Apparently, they mattered enough that American political capital was expended–no, wasted!–on them.

And that’s my biggest problem with this whole deal. Contrast the three college hoops stars with the three Americans currently being held in North Korean prisons for baloney trumped-up “crimes.” My biggest objection is Trump’s waste of political capital with China on these three nothing basketball players a/k/a future multi-babydaddy bankruptcy filers. Yet, Tony Kim, Kim Hak Song, and Kim Dong Cul are all American and all stuck in North Korean prisons. They need Trump’s help. They need Trump’s influence on China to influence North Korea. But they won’t get it because they aren’t bigtime college athletes, which is the only reason the UCLA basketball stars got away with this and got to go home. If they were average American tourists to China, they’d do the time and Trump wouldn’t bother with them.

Yes, nobody told the three Americans in North Korea to go there, and they knew the risks, just like the college b-ball players should have. But, they didn’t willingly engage in crime a la the hoopsters. One of them, Kim Hak Song, was in North Korea helping the starving North Korean people develop agricultural technology so they could efficiently grow their own food. Compare that with stealing sunglasses at Louis Vuitton . . . and two other stores from which they also stole. It simply doesn’t compare.

And we need our political influence with China to leverage our debt with Chinese banks and to deal with North Korea’s growing nuclear and other military threats to the Western world, including South Korea. All of these are more laudable goals–infinitely more laudable and more important–than worrying about three childish, privileged college athlete thugs who felt they didn’t have to pay for sunglasses at a luxury store in China.

As I said, at the very least, Donald Trump would have been performing a service to America in forcing them to stay in China for at least a few months. This would’ve made both Trump and the Chinese look like heroes.

Instead, Trump is begging for Thank Yous from these three jerks on Twitter. Thank Yous from three privileged aholes whose next move will likely be kneeling during the National Anthem.

these are coddled american teenagers who do not understand consequences of their actions. If this had happened in the US they would have screamed the store was ‘rayciss” and that would have ended it. Blacks have never left the plantation and in this case “massa” fixed it all.

chuck on November 15, 2017 at 5:56 pm

Well they should be kicked off team, not allowed into the NBA, and should serve jail time here in America along with having to pay for those items. Granted privileged is true, but let’s show we are a humane society and not forget they’ve got parents who probably can’t help it when their kids act stupid. North Korea freeing prisoners?. Please, the odds of winning the lottery would be a better bet than those Communists being humane.

I would have thought the mere presence of Ball’s father LaVar in the world, would have made the Chinese government tremble and release them immediately.

I can’t look for news without seeing this guy and his line of $495 sneakers, and a son who now plays for the Lakers, all over the place, every window on my screen. He’s in the news, entertainment, business, and of course sports sections of every web site.

LaVar Ball is “Trumping” himself and his kids into untold riches by being The Greatest Thing Since Sliced Bread. I would have thought the Chinese government heard that LaVar told the world last year he could have taken Michael Jordan in a game of one on one.

If he could have done that, no problem with a lightweight like Xi Xinping, right? Just send President LaVar Ball over there.

What a bunch of everything Debbie said these kids were, and a lot more. Did these kids ever hear of what happened at Tiananmen Square after the lights went out? It was a heck of a lot worse than The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia, that’s for sure.

Only one died that night. It was tens of thousands more that bloody week in China. Jerks should be kissing the President’s butt at High Noon in Macy’s Window on December 24th.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on November 15, 2017 at 8:45 pm

Nor, do I anticipate, will this score points for Trump in light of the Dems who are now drawing up articles of impeachment against him.

But as for the Roy Moore imbroglio – to my antennae, that whole flap smells of a typical Larry Flynt smear/hit job. Especially since this sleazy porn merchant has been at war with the “religious right” his entire career, and given his takedowns of politicians of a certain political persuasion in order to ensure that only those who aspire to his particular (sewer) “values” (which are at one with the likes of Harvey Weinstein and the Hollywood Left) get into office – plus his offering millions to sundry individuals to crawl out of the woodwork to make their particular allegations.

Concerned Patriot on November 15, 2017 at 9:24 pm

I also wonder what compromises Trumpster made to get these jerks off while people are rotting in jail in Iran. Everybody seems to know now Trump is easily flattered. I wouldn’t thank him either. Stupid idiot.

Mochizuki Koga on November 16, 2017 at 2:39 am

I agree that this was a waste political capital. Save it for something important, not three Black Privileged ASSLETES!

MuzzCrusher on November 16, 2017 at 11:10 am

I wonder if Big Baller Brand shoes are made in China? Trump may have indeed threatened Xi Jinping with LaVar Ball. Maybe it should be Ambassador Ball. Then LaVar Ball could start a Big Political Balls brand of shoes.

But as Debbie pointed out, it takes more political balls to get people who are no-name political prisoners out of a place like China than three high profile “student”-athlete types.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on November 16, 2017 at 11:57 am

Typical, as can be expected, gutter tripe responses and even words used in this article. Thugs? for making a screw up by stealing. They have no record. In college, playing basketball.
Of course you repukelicans, defend some Pedo but call these young Blacks the spawn of satan.

Just when you think Trump has sunk low, he reaches new depths of disgusting. He’s more than moronic, he has absolutely NO compassion, empathy or sense of what’s right. He’s so jealous of everything Obama accomplished that he’ll allow the slaughter of the majestic elephant leaving behind the orphaned babies and destroying family groups. Shame on you, Moron in Chief, there is a special place in hell for nonhumans like you.

DisgustedAtYouPeople on November 16, 2017 at 1:35 pm

And the Teleprompter-In-Chief allowed the slaughter of wolves and bald eagles. Listen, bot, I don’t have time for this right now. You can do better than to bring up elephant dung.

Alfredo, this so-called “DisgustedAtYouPeople” is a classic troll who does nothing but start and provoke “flame-wars” for attention and thinks that he’s on this instance, more ethical than his fellow humanity. He’s (I assume it’s a male?) your typical “beta-male” that’s a wimp and is VERY boring.

    Yes, SeanR., thank you, and with an emphasis on the BORING part. Really!!! If you’re going to be a trollbot, at least be interesting. Do some jousting. A few clever insults, a couple hard barbs here and there, a banana peel on an icy sidewalk, . . .

    SOMETHING!!! But DON’T be a boring troll. That’s terrible.

    Alfredo from Puerto Rico on November 16, 2017 at 8:49 pm

Their “apology” sounded like the old “we’re sorry – that were were caught” speech.

Martel on November 16, 2017 at 6:18 pm

maybe China let them go because their DNA wasn’t a donor match for anyone.

Yes Trump should have let the Chinese justice system work.

Keep up the good works Debbie

General P. Malaise on November 16, 2017 at 7:08 pm

As a follow-up to this article, it should be noted that LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley have publicly apologized and thanked Trump for helping them to get-out-of-jail free (but not in those words). I’d hardly be surprised if their statements of “apology” were written by UCLA lawyers for the Bruins. They still haven’t shown much contrition though, as they mostly go through the motions and are not convincingly sorry for what they’ve done. And they still haven’t even admitted that what they did was wrong. Calling their own thefts “unfortunate” and “poor judgment” doesn’t do it.

And the response from UCLA demonstrates beyond any doubt that ethics and integrity are simply outmoded relics of the past. Instead of immediately kicking them out, UCLA officials say they will “review” the matter and will temporarily suspend the players. But there’s nothing to “review.”

Moreover, UCLA already has an example of how to deal with such conduct. In 2010, Paul Richardson, Shaquille Richardson and Josh Shirley, three UCLA freshman football players were charged with felony theft after being caught stealing items. In their case, the three players were not only quickly suspended for the season, but they were not allowed to continue summer school or enroll for the fall quarter. Instead, the three had to transfer.

Eventually, their felony charged was reduced to a misdemeanor. The three ex-UCLA players eventually joined Pac-12 Conference rivals, and afterward, they went on to play professional football, with receiver Paul Richardson currently playing well for the Seattle Seahawks.

But at least UCLA drew a line in the sand for those three UCLA football players. It remains to be seen whether UCLA will at least follow that example, or whether it will send a message to others that crimes have no consequences–if you have the right connections and there’s money to to be made from failing to punish criminal conduct.

I will close with a joke, as presented by the greatest “inebriated” comic of all time–Foster Brooks–on the subject of “stealing” . . . and hypocrisy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y9z3sh9ZTNs

Ralph Adamo on November 17, 2017 at 12:01 am

    Having seen and loved Foster Brooks a lot during the 70’s, I’ll try and watch the video later if time permits.

    But to provide an addendum to what Mr. Adamo said, yes, the salient point is that, in AfroLabadSouthAmerAsiexico, The Untied States of Amerika, the DisUnited Snakes of Americca, however you wish to say it, . . .

    crime DOES pay.

    Our sins and the constant justification of them, have sealed our fate. God takes no delight in suffering, but He WILL allow us to soon be blown off the map, for this, among our greatest sins as a nation, which are many.

    Quite unfortunately, crime DOES pay. That’s a big problem, IN and FOR America.

    The world is a 3 ring circus, we’re just in the center ring, that’s all.

    Alfredo from Puerto Rico on November 17, 2017 at 11:42 am

I just remembered when I was a young Marine stationed at Camp Pendleton and was with a few buddies up in Westwood on a Friday night and almost tangled with a few UCLA basketball players; don’t recall what prompted the confrontation, but recall looking up at this b ball player towering over me and telling him listen fuck stick; we ain’t college frat boys out on the town, we’re Marines and will fuck you up if that’s really what you want or words to that effect. They had a change of heart.

DisgustedAtYouPeople on November 19, 2017 at 5:27 pm

Somewhat late to see this story, much less comment, but here goes…

While the students by now have thanked the president, what should have been demanded was an apology. Also, there’s the 1 ‘dad’ who demonstrated the problem w/ 1 of the ‘kids’. It’s interesting that they had to read a prepared statement for the apology: like the average basketball ‘scholarship’ student, they were probably straight ‘F’ students ?

Wonder who is setting the priorities for this president. Trying to get back these 3 students is like Obama trying to get back Bergdawl, except that we didn’t give China anything in return (or so it seems)

Given how the president needs TWO things from China – both its influence on North Korea, as well as it’s agreeing to a fairer trade arrangement, I see no reasons why these 3 were a priority at all. On the North Korean ‘prisoners of conscience’, since he’s already trying to get Beijing to get North Korea to stop on its nuke program, asking them to intervene on this one as well was probably asking too much. Not to mention, the US, in addition to North Korea & trade, also needed to get China to scale back its ambitions in the South China Sea, but that’s not gonna happen: hence the meetings w/ Vietnam & the Philippines.

Misplaced attempt to gain support from Leftists. I’ve seen politicians do this time and time again… and it NEVER works. I’ve even advised politicians not to do such, yet they still do. All I do is shake my head when they lose their next election because their base feels they were betrayed.

Russ on November 19, 2017 at 11:48 pm

That’s right, Russ, and the American people are now no longer in the dark about the fact that 99.9% of our politicians in both parties no longer work for us. It is all too obvious that they work for themselves, and that their control over us is out of control.

All the people have been betrayed. And they keep betraying us, keep lying to us, and know that we know we’re being lied to. They basically dare us to do something about it, because one thing they know is that the American people are not likely to rise up and physically pound the crap out of them and make Baby Doc burgers out of them all.

    My gosh you’re boring, do you have ANYTHING original and thoughtful add to the dialogue rather trolling and justifying classic “ad-hominems” by being sanctimonious conjecturing that you’re the arbiter of prudence, logic, ethics, etc.

    And BTW, before you start calling anyone a racist, I happen to be a Black person who not only follows and subscribes to Ms. Schlussel, but also a Black person who voted and supports Donald Trump as being our current president, does that make me all of a sudden a so-called “uncle Tom”?

    To me, you White-Liberals are the real “white-supremacists”, you patronize, coddle and exploit non-Whites by telling them how to argue, think, etc., instead of being “self-reliant”. Now wonder the late “Malcolm X” (yes he was very flawed and did some stuff that was questionable) said that the White-Liberals are “Dixiecrats” in disguise (referring to the Democrats before the Civil Rights Act of fifty years ago)!

The President should have handled these thugs in the same manner the previous administration handled Otto Warmbier. I don’t think that Mr. Trump should be engaging in any talk whatsoever on the subject. When I donate to charity, I don’t expect thanks or acknowledgement and neither should he. I happened to ask a very famous former UCLA Bruin how Coach John Wooden would have handled them, back in the day. I cannot repeat his answer other than to say they would not be playing ball.

Tommy Thomas on November 26, 2017 at 12:13 am

Re: DAYP’s comments for November 25, 2017 at 9:38 pm and 9:39.

First of all, I’ll give you (DAYP) credit for your comments cited above being at least somewhat on topic as to what Debbie’s post is about, unlike your earlier comments on his thread, although I still don’t like your arrogance and nastiness that are in your comments.

Second, on your link from the Washington Post that says in its headline that Trump’s claim that the three basketball shoplifters would have gotten up to 10 years in jail if Trump hadn’t intervened is wrong. Actually, the headline is somewhat misleading because the article does say that “Trump is right that China’s criminal justice system has a very high conviction rate and that the punishment for theft ranges widely, from a couple of days to 10 years in prison. …” but then it goes on to say that “… experts say the basketball players would have almost certainly escaped China without jail time. When foreigners commit minor offenses, Chinese officials are more likely to deport them instead of imprisoning them. It’s just not worth the diplomatic headache.” In any case, if those experts are correct, then it would only further confirm Debbie’s main point that Trump shouldn’t have interfered on behalf of the three basketball players because in addition to the points that she made in her post, it was also unnecessary because they weren’t in danger of facing jail time anyway although–as Debbie pointed out–they should have spent a month or two months in jail. I agree with that.

JeffE on November 26, 2017 at 3:06 pm
