Detroit Pistons head coach Stan Van Gundy went off on Wednesday about Donald Trump being elected as president, and Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr was asked about those comments in his press conference before the Warriors’ game at Oracle Arena on Wednesday night.
Well, Kerr didn’t exactly hold back about the election himself:
We talked about it as a team this morning. I don’t know what else to say. Just the whole process has left all of us feeling disgusted and disappointed. I thought we were better than this. I thought The Jerry Springer Show was The Jerry Springer Show. Watching the last debate, Trump would make a crack at Clinton, and you could hear fans in the stands ‘Oooooh, oooh, no you didn’t!’. Like, yeah he did. This is the presidential election, it’s not The Jerry Springer Show. I’m sorry, this is my rant. I’m disappointed in the lack of respect and dignity that’s involved, and that’s the way it goes.

Do not expect these kind of comments around the sports world to slow down anytime soon. Michelle Beadle, Jalen Rose, and Chauncey Billups went into a deep discussion on the topic during ESPN’s NBA pregame show on Wednesday night.
