Steve Kerr is a man who is not afraid to speak his mind, especially when it comes to taking shots at the current president.
The Golden State Warriors coach took more than just a jab at President Donald Trump on Thursday when he accused him of interfering with the upcoming election.
“He is literally TELLING US that he is interfering in the election by not funding the USPS,” Steve Kerr tweeted.
From one coach to another one, Doc Rivers and the Clippers are getting set for their first round playoff matchup against the Dallas Mavericks, but they are also paying attention to what is going on outside of their NBA bubble.
On Thursday, Trump admitted in an interview that he’s refusing to fund the USPS because that would mean more votes by mail.
Clippers head coach Doc Rivers sees right through Donald Trump’s antics.
“It’s funny, I’ve been sending mail out vote all my life and it’s never been a problem,” Doc Rivers said while shaking his head. “And now all of a sudden, it’s a problem.
“Voter suppression is happening, right? This is not new, voter suppression has been happening my entire life. And it’s been done by the same people to the same people. Now you add the youth in. It used to be black and brown, now it’s black, brown, and young. So on one end, we have voter suppression, and then on the there end, we all of a sudden have this mail problem which has never been a problem.
“You know there are four states that do mail-in only voting, and they’ve done it for years, and they’ve had no problems. So it’s something that someone, and I’m just gonna say it that way, wants us to believe that’s not there.”
Doc Rivers has preached the importance of voting and has been even more outspoken after seeing the failed response to the coronavirus pandemic from Donald Trump and the White House, among other things.
The Clippers have one more seeding game on Friday night against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
