“It wasn’t the White House, it wasn’t the State Department, it wasn’t father LaVar’s so-called people on the ground in China that got his son out of a long term prison sentence – IT WAS ME. Too bad! LaVar is just a poor man’s version of Don King, but without the hair. Just think LaVar, you could have spent the next 5 to 10 years during Thanksgiving with your son in China, but no NBA contract to support you. But remember LaVar, shoplifting is NOT a little thing. It’s a really big deal, especially in China. Ungrateful fool!” – Trump tweet 11-22-17
“IT WAS ME” you “Ungrateful fool!”
I am going to celebrate Thanksgiving with my family tomorrow. I am going to sit at a crowded table filled with too much food surrounded by people I love, people I am thankful for. My Dad will say a pray and thank God for all the blessings that have been bestowed on his family. He will pray for the safety of those family members that couldn’t join us. He will pray for the service men and women who won’t get to hold the hands of their children, their spouses, their moms and dads during this holiday. And he will pray for the leaders of this country, people who have accepted the responsibility to serve all the citizens of this country no matter their color, religion, nationality or sexual preference. He will pray for you, he will pray for us. Lastly, he will pray for the soul of America because like me he doesn’t understand the man who is suppose to be leading this great country of ours. He doesn’t understand his words, his actions or his intentions.
Tomorrow is Thanksgivings. I hope that it will be a peaceful and joyful day for you and I hope that someday soon we can recapture the soul of America that has been missing for the last ten months, a soul of charity, of love and compassion for each other. We can’t afford to wait until January 20, 2021, we simply can’t.
