Patriot Retort: When President Trump was in China, he personally appealed to President Xi on behalf of the three idiot UCLA basketball players arrested for shoplifting.
And isn’t that exactly what a President should do?
Except Barack Obama.
For more than a year, Obama let Otto Warmbier sit in a North Korean jail where Warmbier was tortured and abused.
By the time President Trump got him released in June of this year, Warmbier was in a coma and on the verge of death. Sadly, he died a short time after being freed.
And let’s not forget Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi whom Obama left in a Mexican prison for over two hundred days.
But since intervening on behalf of American citizens in foreign jail is what Presidents should do, I guess it isn’t surprising that Obama didn’t do it.
Any old how.
By intervening within days of these three idiots getting arrested, President Trump spared them heaven knows what kind of treatment.
LaVar Ball, the “celebrity father” of one of these morons, decided that his hatred for Donald Trump and his need for attention was more important than his son being spared jail time in China. read more here
SNIP: I’d like to say something to people, like those basketball players, who travel with their brand-named baggage filled with their conceit and delusions of grandeur to foreign lands.
- You may be something to somebody here in America, but you are worth absolutely nothing to those outside of it. Always remember that and accept it, you have no other choices.
- Locate the American Embassy. Research and understand the customs and laws in your host country and accept that you must behave accordingly. You have no other choices.
- Don’t start your argument with local law enforcement with, “Well, in America” or “But I’m an American.” Because they don’t care. See # 1.
