On Monday evening, Fox News host Neil Cavuto had some choice words for President Donald Trump's latest Twitter beefs with LaVar Ball and Sen.

His comment came a day after Trump tweeted that he "should have left them in jail", referring to Ball's son and two other UCLA basketball players who were arrested on suspicion of stealing sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton store while their team was in China.

"If you help, you shouldn't have to say anything", Ball told CNN's Chris Cuomo in an interview. "OK then. Unless you were there, then you can talk to me", Ball shot back. "I know you weren't there, though". "Let him do his political affairs, and let me handle my son, and let's just stay in our lanes". "Do I think the president helped?"

"Did (Trump) help the boys get out? I wouldn't have thanked the motherf**ker either".

Suspect arrested in deadly Pennsylvania police officer shooting

"Pretending not to know him is the meanest thing you can do to Donald Trump", Colbert said.

"It wasn't a big deal because being raised in South Central LA, I've seen harsher things. They were headed for 10 years in jail", Trump tweeted. "The way I looked at it was, OK, he shoplifted, he wasn't physical, we returned it, he fessed up to it. He fessed up to it".

As confirmed by Sanders, those remarks were in response to comments made by Ball, in which he downplayed Trump's role in helping get his son, as well as UCLA's Jalen Hill and Cody Riley, home. Upon returning to the United States, they were suspended indefinitely from the UCLA team. After this apparent solicitation, the players thanked Trump. He started an apparel company, Big Baller Brand, with shoes that retail for $500 or more, and he got in several plugs for his products during the CNN interview.
