  1. Ladies AND Gentlemen this is what Intelligent, Educated, people call a PUBLICITY STUNT…100%

    EVERYONE was in on this…

    Except the PUBLIC.

    You see how Donald Chump went over to China AND bailed them out. No charges were EVER FILED.

    NOTICE: how the players that got caught 'shoplifting' were NEVER worried about NOTHING from the very beginning.

    100% PUBLICITY STUNT!

    gotta love 💗 UCLA

  2. "I saw people taking stuff". boi
    THEY WERE PROBABLY TAKING STUFF TO THE CASH REGISTER TO PAY FOR THEIR STUFF OR THEY ALREADY PAYED FOR IT AND THEY WERE TAKING THEIR STUFF OUT OF THE STORE!!!!!

  3. Blacks always stealing white and Asian good because they are poor and blacks have nothing. Even Jordan went to a white man to sell his shoes

  4. The Father is truly ungrateful am black but that's really ungrateful
    Your son could face charges yet you don't say thank you!atleast your son isn't full of pride like you.he said thank you to the president.

  5. LiAngelo was being a disrespectful tourist, should've been more educated before he decided to mess around in other people's countries. I'm surprised President Trump actually showed sympathy for the lad and bailed him out.

  6. That dude at the end be like I'm I'm I'm Im a gummy bear yes I'm a gummy bear an blikey stify hot bet she get some licky

  7. Should of kept them in jail for a little longer time maybe he would of learned something or larvar ball in auil cuz he's stupid

  8. I mean, what does his old man think. Steal, say 'I'm sorry and all is fine?. NO. Your gonna pay the price… Thay gotta grow up.

  9. I would have respected the Dad if he said “He was being stupid. I am embarrassed and grateful for the President helping the players. We are very sorry. “

  10. I am not sure if I understand the cultural difference here (if there is any), Is theft not a shameful thing in US? If the mistake was not "costly", then it would be ok? They released shoes in his honour?

  11. How stupid can you be… stealing something because others in your company are doing it… and they're stealing in a communist country that can be quite strict…

    Before they went over there did anybody tell them at all the difference between China and America ?

  12. You leave a great college like u.c.l.a,and join the n.b.a your no Michael Jordan or magic Johnson or any other basketball out there your son is a shoplifters that why Donald trump do what he did helping them

  13. I wonder how much lock up time Chinese players would get if they shoplift in LA on Rodeo Drive? I wonder if the President of China could call and have them released? Why double standards?

  14. Alan Foster didn't teach him well. Gotta steal the gold secretly then get caught purposely when you got most of the goods and fool everyone that you only stole just a bit of pocket money.

  15. He is a grown man . What he did is horrible . Give him a chance . We all grow and learn from our mistake .

  16. That dad is a TRIP. He WAS ungrateful to Trump, and I'm African American and didn't vote for Trump.
