Gregg Popovich Donald Trump's a 'Soulless Coward' & 'Pathological Liar'

Popovich served in the U.S. Air Force before going on to one of the greatest coaching careers in history.

Gregg Popovich is absolutely fed up with President Trump. calling POTUS a "pathological liar" and "soulless coward" for comments he made while talking about the deadly ambush in Niger.

"President Obama I think probably did sometimes and maybe sometimes he didn't".

Trump held a press conference on Monday during which he claimed that many past presidents have not made phone calls to the families of military members killed in action.

"I've been amazed and disappointed by so much of what this President had said, and his approach to running this country, which seems to be one of just a never-ending divisiveness".

The president contrasted his approach to that of some of his predecessors, saying, "If you look at President Obama and other presidents, majority didn't make calls, a lot of them didn't make calls". Other presidents did not call.

"This man in the Oval Office is a soulless coward who thinks that he can only become large by belittling others", Popovich said. This has of course been a common practice of his, but to do it in this manner-and to lie about how previous Presidents responded to the deaths of soldiers-is as low as it gets.

"We have a pathological liar in the White House: unfit intellectually, emotionally, and psychologically to hold this office and the whole world knows it, especially those around him every day", Popovich said Monday.

Of those who work under the president, Popovich said they are all aware of how unfit Trump is and that that, "This is their shame most of all".

It doesn't take a long time to know that what was originally said was definitely a lie so Popovich called The Nation's Dave Zirin to talk about Trump's comments and wanted to make sure what was said was on the record.

He said the election's results gave him a sick stomach in November after Trump was elected. In May, he referred to the president's tenure as a "game show". That same day he spoke about using his platform as an National Basketball Association head coach to rebuke white privilege and promote equality. A five-time NBA champion with San Antonio, he has added the title of head coach of the US national team, taking over from Mike Krzyzewski, and will lead it into the 2020 Olympic Games. Even when he was still President-elect, the coach didn't stay silent.
