Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, November 25, 2017

President Donald Trump is feuding with LaVar Ball and LeVar Burton is taking the hit on Twitter. Burton is an actor best known for playing Lt. La Forge in Star Trek on TV and film and for championing kids' education through the Reading Rainbow series. Ball is the father of Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball and UCLA basketball player LiAngelo Ball, one of three student players recently arrested in China for shoplifting. Trump tweeted that Ball was an "ungrateful fool" for not being more appreciative of presidential intervention in LiAngelo Ball's case. Some of the president's followers in turn attacked Burton on Twitter, with one calling him a "has been actor with a thief for a son."

I thought Burton was best known for playing Kunta Kintay?

I have to admit I was LMAO - The ignorance of the right sometimes is so completely overwhelming.

Not very important, that's for sure.

Deplorables are funny because they are a bunch of morons. Hillary was right!

And the worst thing about this is that LeVar Burton is one of the truly good guys of Hollywood.

How is it that never-wases are so comfortable insulting others?

No confusion at all. Both are uppity nigras that need to be put in their place. I never liked that Star Track show anyway -- it was on the same time as Hee Haw. They're all thieves, stealing jobs from white folks with their firmitive action and college educations...

Profiling at it's best!

Actually, I am surprised that Trump supporters ever know who LeVar Burton is. "Star Trek: The Next Generation" is a rather high brow show for them...

"They're both black, right?

What's the difference."

Lavar Burton is in a big spat after more or less stealing the reading rainbow customer base. Business deal gone sour.

Profiling at its most accurate. I've yet to meet a trump supporter who's not a rich ----- or total moron.

Excuse me, it's what Sitzkrieg said, Reading Rainbow.

I'm not sure if it's still Reading Rainbow or not. The lawsuit was settled last month but my kids haven't been using the site since the domain changed for a time.

It's not profiling if it's true.
