Gregg Popovich was not shy about his views on politics before or after the 2016 election. He was outspoken in his support of Colin Kaepernick during his national anthem protests, and he ranted in disbelief that the country elected Donald Trump in the days following his electoral college win.

President Trump isn't going away, so neither is Popovich. In the video above, provided by, Popovich went all the way in on Trump while discussing the success of today's Women's March on Washington: 

"Today was great, that message is important... Our President comes in with the lowest rating of anybody who ever took office. There's a majority of people out there, Hillary [Clinton] won the popular vote, that don't like his act. I just wish he was more... had the ability to be mature enough to do something that really is inclusive... so far we've gotten to the point where you really can't believe anything that comes out of his mouth. All those thousands were over on the rooftops after 9/11, there were like two. He went to Hawaii and checked [Barack Obama's] birth certificate and the investigators couldn't believe what they found."

He wasn't done there. Coach Pop saved some ammo for the surrogates and team surrounding Trump, who he feels continue to aid despicable actions by Trump:

"What really bothers me are the people around him; the Sean Spicers, the Kellyanne Conways, the Reince Priebuses, who know who he is, and actually have the cynical approach and disingenuous attitude to really defend him and try to make it look like he didn't say what he said. So when he's mad at the media for them reporting what he said, it just boggles my mind."

He may be famously surly during mid-game interviews, but Popovich comes off as measured and well-spoken when discussing issues that impact all Americans. In between keeping the Spurs humming and coaching Team USA, it's good to know the legendary coach is taking time to speak up.
