Gregg Popovich is a great basketball coach, as evidenced by all the NBA championships he has won with the San Antonio Spurs. However, Popovich has earned plenty of enmity in Texas where he lives and elsewhere for his failure to restrain himself from spewing out his hateful liberal beliefs regarding Republican President Donald Trump.
Popovich went on a tirade again recently over the fact that Trump, who has been busy dealing with the devastation following Hurricanes Harvey, Maria and Irma, had gotten somewhat behind on calling families of fallen soldiers.
This set off Popovich, who said to Dave Zirin of ultra-liberal magazine The Nation, “I’ve been amazed and disappointed by so much of what this president had said, and his approach to running this country, which seems to be one of just a never ending divisiveness. But his comments today about those who have lost loved ones in times of war and his lies that previous Presidents Obama and Bush never contacted their families, is so beyond the pale, I almost don’t have the words.”
He added, “This man in the Oval Office is a soulless coward who thinks that he can only become large by belittling others.” Gregg continued, “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. The people who work with this president should be ashamed because they know it better than anyone just how unfit he is, and yet they choose to do nothing about it. This is their shame most of all.”
The blowback for Popovich’s loose comments was harsh. Said one internet commenter, “Anyone remotely familiar with Gregg Popovich would not dignify any comment this obviously mentally deficient cretin utters.” Added another, “Popovich’s hate of our country and its elected President is disgusting.” Do you think Popovich needs to shut his mouth and stick to basketball?
