San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich unloaded on President Trump before his teams matchup with the Washington Wizards Tuesday night.
“He brings out the dark side of human beings for his own purpose, which is himself,” said Popovich, who is a frequent critic of the president. “If its not pointed out, if people dont stand up and point it out, he will become commonplace, and its not the world that I want to live in.”

The Spurs coach also had strong praise for last weekends March For Our Lives.
“Thats why the kids that have been doing this, that had the march and everything, they give me hope that Im actually living in the country that I thought I was living in. Because at times, its not where I thought I was living, but they made me believe, they give you hope for the future that they want to do the right things that have moral clarity and common sense,” said Popovich, who then contrasted their stance to his view of the presidents actions on gun control.
“We have a president who sat across a table in a fake environment of goodwill to talk about gun violence, just like the immigration facade where hed sign anything, and of course he didnt do anything,” said the Spurs coach. “Hes who he is. Hes actually kind of boring because hes done this all so much. We all know whats coming and we know what lies gonna happen. Thats not very interesting. Its pathetic.”
