Spurs coach Gregg Popovich takes on Trump and racism in a powerful speech.

San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich has a bone to pick with President Donald Trump’s attitude toward politics and sports.

An outspoken critic of Trump, the five-time NBA champion coach laid into the president during a press conference on Monday, critiquing his “childishness” and “gratuitous fear-mongering.” This came after a weekend in which Trump uninvited the NBA champion Golden State Warriors from the White House and raged against NFL players protesting police violence.

“Our country is an embarrassment to the world,” Popovich added, referencing Trump’s antics during his first months in office.

Popovich didn’t stop there.

He brought the conversation back around to the real topic at hand: race and racism in America.

“Obviously, race is the elephant in the room, and we all understand that,” he said, shrugging off the idea that if we simply stop talking about racism that it’ll somehow just go away.
