Last time we checked, it was possible to disagree with Donald Trump without going here:
Pop has spoken: "our country is an embarrassment to the world" https://t.co/g8Qn3bWl7x

Popovich didn’t mince words when speaking about Donald Trump and the weekend’s NFL drama.
“Our country is an embarrassment to the world,” he said during the press conference.
Of his own players, he said, “They have our full support. No matter what they might want to do or not to do, it is important to them to be respected by us, and there is no recrimination no matter what might take place unless it’s ridiculously egregious.”
It’s great that Pop sticks up for his team. As a coach, that’s part of his job. But what purpose does trashing America serve, other than alienating more fans from yet another beloved pastime?
Gregg Popovich is now an embarrassment to our country. Had to turn it political! Why???

Why is it so difficult to just commit to taking the high road?
I know Pop likes to speak up, but saying America is an embarrassment is not okay, @spurs. If anyone is an embarrassment, it’s Pop.

In attempting to criticize Donald Trump, Popovich took a page from Trump’s “Doing It Wrong” book. Do better, Pop.
