Reading Rainbow’s LeVar Burton bombarded with tweets from angry Trump fans who think he’s LaVar Ball

Published

LeVar Burton, the actor who’s best known for his past work in “Reading Rainbow” and “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” is getting bombarded with angry tweets from Trump fans who have mistaken him for LaVar Ball.

LaVar Ball — the father of UCLA basketball player LiAngelo Ball, whom President Donald Trump helped free after he got caught shoplifting in China — has been in a public feud with Trump for the past several days. In particular, the president was incensed that Ball didn’t personally thank him for helping his son get out of a potential prison sentence.

However, none of this has anything to do with LeVar Burton, the former “Reading Rainbow” host who simply happens to share a first name with Ball.

As UpRoxx notices, this hasn’t stopped furious Trump supporters from calling Burton “ungrateful” after they watched interviews of LaVar Ball on CNN and Fox News Tuesday morning.

On Twitter, Burton responded to a tweet that mistook him for Ball by calling it “one of the many sleights I am having to endure these days.”

Specifically, Wilson says that the leaked excerpts from Bolton's upcoming book have put a major political price on Republican senators who vote to acquit the president without even hearing a single witness.

Published

Rudy Giuliani denied claims by former national security adviser John Bolton, and kept the door open to his own possible impeachment testimony.

The former New York City mayor said he was still President Donald Trump's personal attorney, but explained why he had not been added to his impeachment trial defense team, reported CBS News.

"Well, I am, but I can't participate in what goes on in the Congress, because I'm a possible witness," Giuliani said, adding that he's ready to testify if he got White House approval.
