Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, October 17, 2017

San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich called Donald Trump a "soulless coward" following the president's false statements regarding former presidents calling the families of military members killed in action. Popovich, an Air Force veteran, contacted The Nation soon after Trump's remarks. "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," Popovich said. "But his comments today about those who have lost loved ones in times of war and his lies that previous presidents Obama and Bush never contacted their families, is so beyond the pale, I almost don't have the words."

"This man in the Oval Office is a soulless coward who thinks that he can only become large by belittling others. 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.

The people who work with this President should be ashamed because they know it better than anyone just how unfit he is, and yet they choose to do nothing about it. This is their shame most of all."

Popovich also slammed Trump's "childishness and the gratuitous fear-mongering and race-baiting [that] has been so consistent that it's almost expected."

Funny how Bourdain was qualified to comment on Clinton, but Pop isn't qualified to comment on Trump.

With that poster, it's only when Trump is being bashed that some people aren't qualified to comment.

"Trump is one crisis away from being the worst president we have had, ever."

Oh I think that train left the station a long time ago.

All this overpaid clown is qualified to comment on is how to babysit rich, egomaniacal athletes whose sole contribution to society is dribbling leather balls while flapping their gums. Just play the goddamn game and stfu. Fans don't pay you for your political analysis.

I don't get it. He's a rich businessman. That's literally your ONLY qualification for being president. So why is he an overpaid clown?

He is allowed to say anything he wants. I believe in the first amendment. And I have a right to call him a moron who tosses out basketballs to genetic freaks and thinks he's a genius.

#17 - Were you ever this angry at Ted Nugent?, or is your outrage only for those that call out republicans?

I never owned a Nugent album, cassette, 8-track cartridge in my life. Why would I be angry with him, goofball?

Yeah we know. Conservatives hate education. Their entire philosophy relies on ignorance of history, statistics, and facts.

The media isn't liberal because of a conspiracy. They're liberal because they're smart and educated.

Which is obvious to most, yet more than you know. So again, that "idiot" is smarter than you.

Maybe fans of that team?

At least he's using his position to spread the truth. While you use yours to pretend trump is no worse than anyone else, demonstrating your lack if intellect to anyone who will listen.

You have a real problem distinguishing "truth" from "my opinion" Typical

#19 - My point had nothing to do with whether you are a fan or not of any of these celebrities. My point was you seem to be exceedingly eager to call out a liberal celebrity for making their opinion public, but you never complained about any loudmouth rightwing celebrities. Your seem like you might be full of crap when you state that you don't care about celebrity opinions, because you are certainly bothered by what Popovich said.
