CNN’s Chris Cuomo appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers Wednesday night, where he relived his epic interview with LaVar Ball, father of LiAngelo Ball. The interview, which was intended to be relatively short, gained momentum,extending to 23 minutes of now-viral hilarity. As the interview with Ball barreled along Cuomo said he was asking himself: “Why am I watching this? What is happening?”
In actuality, Ball was trolling Trump, who was in mid-tantrum due to the reluctance of Ball to lavish praise on him. LaVar Ball seized the opportunity to get under the thin skin of the most powerful man in the free world – God save us all, and make him go berserk. Trump obliged. Yes, it is a ridiculous waste of time, but would you rather have Trump signing things and pushing buttons or fighting with LaVar Ball?
