Here is what Gregg Popovich, the Basketball Coach of the San Antonio Spurs NBA team, said about the President of the United States Donald Trump

One Air Force veteran, San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich, spoke for a lot of Americans this week in comments he made to Dave Zirin at The Nation. It is worth reading and reflecting on Pop’s full comments:

“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.

“This man in the Oval Office is a soulless coward who thinks that he can only become large by belittling others. This has of course been a common practice of his, but to do it in this manner — and to lie about how previous presidents responded to the deaths of soldiers — is as low as it gets. 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.”
