This budding feud is peak 2017.

Earlier this week, the three UCLA basketball players arrested for shoplifting in China were returned home to the United States, reportedly after President Donald Trump intervened on their behalf, though it is unknown what exactly he did.

All three Bruins--LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley--thanked Trump during their return press conference. However, LaVar Ball was less than gracious, downplaying the role the President played.

You knew LaVar doing that would generate a Twitter response from Trump, and sure enough, here it is.

The internet might not be able to handle Trump vs. LaVar.
