So, progressives and the ilk. You are sitting there wondering about Donnie 45. He brags about assaulting women in the #MeToo age, and what happens to him? Nada. He is robbing the government blind with events held at his hotels and resorts. He doesn’t even try to hide it. Just says his sons run things now. This would be really familiar if the Trumps’ last name were Gotti or Gambino. Them we send to prison. Him, we fly to Mar-A-Lago at our own expense. If you accuse him of lying, he calls you a liar. If you accuse him of being ignorant he calls you stupid. If you say he has really stupid hair, he calls you ugly. Anyone who has been around young children is familiar with the mind-numbing exchange of: You are! No, you are! … or Are too! Am not! … etc etc etc etc. Children doing this get sent to their rooms. He gets sent to the Oval Office where he can make up insulting names for people with the power to destroy the world.
The question is why does he get away with this? The answer is he has never been accountable to anyone and thus no one has simply said, “No. Do that again and the hammer is gonna fall on you” and made it stick. He is that one spoiled kid who will fuss and scream until he will get what he wants if he will just shut the fuck up! His ability to outlast you is phenomenal. He is the reductio ad absurdum of inappropriate behavior.
Now it happens that there is someone who can out-Donnie Donnie, who can take Donnie’s insane narcissism game and take it even further. His name is LaVar Ball. He is the only person in recent memory with an ability equal to Donnie’s to say the most ridiculous, preposterous, money-grubbing, self-engrandizing thing and continually get away with it. He is the black Donnie. He is not a fool, he is a genius. He should be weaponized instead of demonized. The Democratic National Committee should turn him on Donnie with the same brilliant malevolence that he has for organized basketball and the big shoe companies.
But maybe, just maybe, Donnie has already started a Twitter war with LaVar Ball and has started a process that will cause his crooked fat-ass empire to explode as it encounters the LaVar antimatter to his Donnie matter. All that will be left are a smoking pair of handmade Italian loafers and a pair of Big Baller Brand high tops.

How valuable has LaVar Ball’s feud with Donald Trump been for the Big Baller Brand?
Let’s see, who was it that leveraged billions of dollars in free media time to get what he wanted? Fat white guy with stupid hair. Donnie something.
