President Trump's Feud With LaVar Ball

For anyone who might have missed it, President Trump just returned from a trip to Asia. Among the other diplomatic tasks he undertook while traveling, he found time to negotiate the release of three American college basketball players who had been arrested in China for stealing a pair of sunglasses.

Upon their release, the three players had to be prompted by the President before they thanked him. Meanwhile, LaVar Ball, the father of one of the kids, outright refused to thank President Trump, or even acknowledge that he was the main reason his son was back on American soil. Adding insult to injury, Ball came back to state that if anyone deserved any form of gratitude, it was Chinese President Xi.

Welcoming Home A Veterans Day Hero

Returning to DFW airport yesterday after an out of state business trip, I️ witnessed something incredible. After landing, I️ left my plane, and on the way to the baggage claim, only two gates down from mine, I️ was stopped in my tracks.

I’m a huge supporter of our military and law enforcement, so I’m a sucker for any display of patriotism. Flags, National Anthem, historical monuments, all of it. So when I️ was about to exit to the baggage claim and saw a crowd congregating around a bunch of flags in the terminal, I️ had to take a look.

I️ had never witnessed the return of an Honor Flight before. But by some fluke, I️ happened to be at the airport at the right time. I️ have to say, it was incredibly moving.
