Donald Trump is a business man, pure and simple. And successful business men surround themselves with people who compliment them.
So while he is “draining the swamp” of Washington D.C., it only seems appropriate that Trump get rid of those who do not share his vision and put into place people who share his blurred vision of America.
Filling the vacancy of heading the Federal Bureau of Investigations should be no different.
That’s why LaVar Ball is simply the best man for the job.
Why? Just listen to them.
- They think alike – meaning they think only about themselves and how others reflect on them. In fact, they are both very adept at trying to draw attention to themselves.
- They tout their kids as superhuman because they consider themselves as superhuman. Consider the following quotes:
“I’ve been coaching them all their lives. I’ve instilled something in them that you can’t take out. Like, ‘No shot is a bad shot.’ ” – LaVar Ball, March 2016.
“I’ll tell you what I’ve learned: Children are tough. Much tougher than people think. … I’m a really good father, but not a really good husband. You’ve probably figured out my children really like me–love me–a lot. It’s hard when somebody walks into the living room of Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach and this is supposed to be, like, a normal life. But they’re very grounded and very solid. The hardest thing for me about raising kids has been finding the time. I know friends who leave their business so they can spend more time with their children, and I say, ‘Gimme a break!’ My children could not love me more if I spent fifteen times more time with them.”
- They believe if others were like them, then those others would be better.
“If Charles (Barkley) thought like me, maybe he’d win a championship.” —LaVar Ball March 2017.
“He begged me four years ago for my endorsement — I mean, literally begged me,” Trump said on the “Today” show. “And he’s a failed candidate. I mean, frankly, I backed him; he failed. He was a horrible candidate, didn’t know what he was doing.”
On ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Trump added: “Mitt Romney was a failed candidate — should have beaten Barack Obama easily.” On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Trump again stressed that Romney “begged me, and I mean begged me” for an endorsement during the 2012 race (http://www.businessinsider.com/donald-trump-mitt-romney-utah-speech-2016-3).
- They seem to be all about their own “brand.”
“We already got our own brand. Triple B’s. Lonzo is going to be the first one drafted with his own brand. That don’t happen.” — February 2017
Trump has, well everything branded: water, golf courses, buildings, universities, ties, etc.
- They are both obsessed with being billionaires.
“A billion dollars, it has to be there. That’s our number, a billion, straight out of the gate. And you don’t even have to give it to me all up front. Give us $100 mil over 10 years.” — March 2017
- They both think very highly of themselves.
“Back in my heyday, I would kill Michael Jordan one-on-one.” — March 2017. Of course he did play one year of college basketball averaging a little over two points a game. The only person to hold Jordan under 20 a game was Dean Smith.
“We are going to have an unbelievable, perhaps record-setting turnout for the inauguration, and there will be plenty of movie and entertainment stars. All the dress shops are sold out in Washington. It’s hard to find a great dress for this inauguration.” Yep, he said that.
- They both think a lot of what food they eat.
“I was sitting at the table, we had finished dinner,” Trump told Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo. “We’re now having dessert—and we had the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake that you’ve ever seen—and President Xi was enjoying it.”

This is a match made in heaven.
