Colbert and his writers are quick on their feet.
Trump, angry about LaVar Ball's comments, tweets that he "should have left" LiAngelo Ball in jail.
Stephen Colbert: “Mr Trump, I know you’re upset — but maybe now is not the time to imply that someone’s kids should go to jail for what their dad did.”

The really funny thing is that Trump got played by Mr. Ball.
His tried-and-true strategy for promoting the family products is to troll people with a higher profile into speaking his name and, thus, grow the family business along the way.
He did it with Michael Jordan, with Steph Curry and with LeBron James, and now he’s done it with Trump.
