A new episode of TheDC Newsroom is here, and reporters Alex Pfeiffer and Amber Athey have some thoughts on the latest news surrounding President Trump, Al Franken, and more.
Trump Spars With LaVar Ball Over Twitter:
- President Trump went after LaVar Ball on Twitter after he gave President Trump little credit for securing the release of his son, as well as two other UCLA players who were caught shoplifting from a store in China.

- The attacks continued, with Trump tweeting, “Shoplifting is a very big deal in China, as it should be (5-10 years in jail), but not to father LaVar. Should have gotten his son out during my next trip to China instead. China told them why they were released. Very ungrateful!” (RELATED: Trump Continues Attacks On Father Of Basketball Player)
