CNN anchor Chris Cuomo was tasked with the job of interviewing Big Baller Brand patriarch LaVar Ball for 23 minutes regarding his feud with Donald Trump.
Ball refused to give credit to Trump for freeing his middle son LiAngelo and two UCLA basketball teammates who were arrested in China for shoplifting.
Throughout the interview, Ball played up his character that has generated attention and headlines since his son Lonzo burst onto the scene and was talking in circles while Cuomo seemed to be dumbfounded with what was happening.
Following the interview, Cuomo appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers to discuss the entire interview.
While the entire interview was off of the rails, what really stood out to Cuomo was that the President of the United States lacked enough restraint to avoid getting into a Twitter feud with a character like Ball.
“I never thought the president of the United States would take the bait,” Cuomo told Meyers. “I didn’t even take the bait – and my job is to take the bait.”
