It’s Trump’s fault.
San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich went off on President Trump in a pre-game interview on Sunday.
Because everyone wants to hear an NBA coach rant incoherently on politics before a playoff game.
“Usually, things happen in the world and you go to work and you’ve got your family and you’ve got your friend and you do what you do,” he told reporters before Game One of the NBA Western Conference Finals. “But to this day I feel like there’s a cloud, a pall, over the whole country, in a paranoid surreal sort of way that’s got nothing to do with the Democrats losing the election.”
He continued, “It’s got to do with the way one individual conducts himself. It’s embarrassing. It’s dangerous to our institutions and what we all stand for and what we expect the country to be. But for this individual, he’s at a game show and everything that happens begins and ends with him, not our people or our country.”
The Spurs refused to stay in Trump Hotels this year after Donald Trump won the presidency.
CNN celebrated the coach’s drivel.
