“There will be some people who will say, ‘Just go coach your basketball team’. Just go do this, go sit in your sauna, just go run the football, whatever it might be… [But] that willingness to do whatever it took to get elected, to say and act the way he did, was unacceptable and really disgusting… Even people who voted for him can see that, but for some reason, they think they can ignore that or forget about it…
Sometimes when life moves along, you’re presented with situations where you find it necessary to speak because so many people either seem to be afraid to or, more sinister, are unwilling to face things and let things go and worry about their own situations. And most of those people have had opportunities the vast majority have not. I think it’s important for people who have had opportunities to make sure other people with opportunities know they were very, very, very fortunate…where you were born, what you skin color is, what country you were born in…It’s all chance. You didn’t do that; you get no credit for that.
So a lot of people have an easy time forgetting that and this situation we’re in now, we’re finding a lot of people who are in charge and who will be in charge have very little clue about what many, many people have to go through to live in this world.

On Monday, San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich went on yet another long anti-Trump rant. During an interview, Pop told WTHR.com he doesn’t plan to stop talking about the president:
As The Washington Post noted, Popovich seems to have “found the opponent of his life” in President Trump. But there are those who have been critical of Coach Pop’s opinions on the new President. Breitbart claimed that Popovich just “can’t get over that Donald J. Trump won the 2016 presidential election” – which is probably accurate, but not really a bad thing. No one should just “get over” the election of an unqualified and unstable candidates like Trump. His behavior is not acceptable and it should not be treated like it is.
The country deserves better. As Popovich said in January: “I just wish that he was more — had the ability to be more.”
