Gregg Popovich Pops Off On Trump
Gregg Popovich is my favorite coach ever! Don't get me wrong I would be a nervous wreck if I ever had to hold a conversation with him and I might pull a Doris Burke just to save myself from any of Pop's sass.
But you can't ignore the fact that Pop is brave and honest AF and that's why I admire him.
This being said, the San Antonia Spurs head coach doesn't shy away from criticizing Donald Trump. As he shouldn't.
During a pregame discussion, before the Spurs' Martin Luther King Day game against the Hawks, Pop commented on Trump claiming to be "least racist person you will ever interview."
"Every time I hear somebody say they're not a racist, you know they are," Popovich told reporters.
"We have a pathological liar in the White House, unfit intellectually, emotionally, and psychologically to hold this office, and the whole world knows it, especially those around him every day," he said.
Trump's claims of being the "least racist person" came days after he called Haiti, El Salvador and African nations "s**thole countries" when discussing people from those countries immigrating to the US.
