A MAJOR VICTORY FOR DONALD
The President may not be able to do anything about influencing the elimination or modification of Obamacare, nor revising any aspect of the tax situation to benefit his true base of wealthy individuals and giant corporations, or even be able to dissuade his fellow headstrong counterpart in North Korea.
However, today he did achieve a major victory, regarding the three UCLA basketball players who were detained in China after they were caught shop-lifting sunglasses while on a goodwill tour in that foreign land.
At a made-for-television news conference, the players read from their own scripts, like Donald does. In both cases, others may have authored the scripts. The players (unlike Trump) apologized for their actions, which caused the American media to find another juicy, non-story to push.
Live and Learn, Perhaps
They each mentioned that this experience would help them in life, by learning from it. The President immediately tweeted that his intervention while in China, probably save these three teenagers from ten years ensconced in prison. Their main unsaid lesson would be, “If you are going to steal, especially in a less-tolerant foreign land, don’t get caught.” Their coach Steve Alford looked on.
The President wanted to make sure that he received maximum credit for his outstanding work on their behalf, the sole, positive result on his prolonged trip to Asia. Donald tweeted that he wants the UCLA players to thank him for intervening, and they did so in their staged media showing, with no questions asked.
Credit for Donald Since
No Bomb Was Dropped
Trump must be given credit for not starting a war with North Korea, and with his limited worldly knowledge, for not starting a war with South Korea.
The three UCLA freshman players were LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill, and all have been suspended indefinitely. Their coach Steve Alford said, “They will have to earn their way back.” What he means is if UCLA is not winning when the Pac-10 Conference Season begins, UCLA will find room for the three as long as they aren’t “caught” doing any other unacceptable deeds.
The Young at Heart
The 6’5” Ball will turn nineteen on November 24th, the 6’7” Riley will be twenty on December 12th, and the 6’10”Hill will be eighteen on December 17th.
Perhaps the youngsters have learned their lesson, and will be sure that they don’t get caught the next time. UCLA basketball needs to hire chaperones for their kiddies, to go along with their other nine “coaches,” including twenty-five-year-old Kory Alford, their Video Coordinator. His last name seems familiar.
