Spurs coach Gregg Popovich goes after ’embarrassing’ President Trump

San Antonio Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich on Sunday called President Trump’s actions “embarrassing” and “dangerous.”

At the end of his pregame media session for Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals, Popovich blasted the president, USA today reported.

“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, 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,” the basketball coach said.

“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.”

Without naming Trump, Popovich continued: “When he talks about those things, that’s just a ruse. That’s disingenuous, cynical and fake.”

His comments come after the president last week fired former FBI Director James Comey, a move that sparked controversy across Washington.

Popovich has criticized the president in the past.

Earlier this year, he suggested Trump couldn’t be trusted, saying people can’t “believe anything that comes out of his mouth.”
