San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, for a long time one of the sports world’s most outspoken critics of President Donald Trump, sparked a violent rant against Trump on Thursday, the day after the President’s supporters stormed the US Capitol.
Popovich spoke to reporters ahead of Thursday’s Los Angeles Lakers game and spoke at length about the deadly DC riot. He wholeheartedly blamed Trump for fueling the vitriol that led to the attack and called for his impeachment.
Popovich also criticized Vice President Mike Pence and Senators Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley and Lindsey Graham for doing so they made Trump possible during his four-year tenure. Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press published a transcript of the flesh of Popovich’s response: « He is incompetent. He is incompetent, » Popovich said of Trump. « He is unable to care. And it’s sad because he’s a crazy, really flawed person, but he’s also dangerous. That’s why I don’t think it’s that far-fetched for people to talk about the 25th Amendment. «
Popovich even speculated that Trump was enjoying watching the riot and questioned the unwillingness of the Capitol police force.
» I believe with all my heart that Trump enjoyed it, « said Popovich. « And they talked about the police and how easy it was and the barriers were pulled and they just went inside. That only happens when there’s a wink and a nod somewhere. It just doesn’t happen. It has never happened in a protest that anyone has ever been to. «
Popovich’s speculation is backed by CNN’s Kaitlan Collins, who tweeted that White House officials were shaken by Trump’s » borderline enthusiastic « response to watching his supporters storm the Capitol.
At least four people were killed and dozens were arrested in the attack, according to DC officials, as was the resignation of the Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund.
« I’m embarrassed to be American and people watch leave what they saw yesterday, « said Popovich, a US Air Force veteran.
Scenes from the riot sparked conviction across the NBA, both for the surreal nature of the Capitol, which has been overtaken by violent insurgents , as well as the perceived double standard of how black protesters are treated compared to the predominantly white crowd in DC.
