Gregg Popovich calls Trump a ‘deranged idiot,’ criticizes his lack of leadership

[The Washington Post, AP]

Gregg Popovich has sharply criticized President Trump in the past, calling him a “soulless coward” and someone who “brings out the dark side of human beings for his own purpose.”

“He can’t do anything to put us on a positive path, because he’s not a leader,” Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich said of President Trump.

Even after all that, the San Antonio Spurs coach may have just used his most unsparing language yet to castigate Trump. While lamenting what he saw as a lack of leadership in the tumultuous aftermath of the killing of George Floyd while in custody of the Minneapolis police, Popovich called the president a “deranged idiot,” a “fool” and a “destroyer.”
