TrumpWatch Daily Update; Week 44, Wednesday
 
Washington is quiet for the Thanksgiving holiday, but President Trump was up early this morning to continue his public, personal attacks on LaVar Ball, the insufficiently grateful father of a UCLA athlete who wasn’t sufficiently grateful for presidential intervention in his release from a shoplifting charge in China. After a series of insults leveled by the president at a private citizen, the White House insisted that the president had a full day of meetings scheduled just before Trump went out to play 18 holes of golf and then tweet about what he was watching on Fox News.
