Popovich wonders where he is living and who he is living with. He obviously believes half of America are “deplorables.” He is living with evangelicals and veterans, perhaps the most value-oriented cohorts in our country.
We Say: It’s gratifying and encouraging that MySanAntonio (Express News) published this spot-on rebuttal of Coach Popovich’s outrageous public whine on the election of Donald Trump. We’re cautiously hopeful but will keep eyes wide open to see if our local media provides more balanced news and viewpoints in the future.
Thank you for speaking out for so many of us, General Brady.

I must say I am sick to my stomach to hear Gregg Popovich whine that he is sick to his stomach for losing to Donald Trump. As a sports icon, and role model, he should be setting the example for losers, gracious, not whiny, in defeat and humble in victory. A poor example for our youth.
As one who has seen up close and personal the dishonesty of the media, I am shocked that he would believe, and promote, the phobias, bigotry and racist labels they have heaped on Donald Trump. Thank God America was not fooled.
As a veteran and former intelligence officer who once considered a career in the CIA, I am shocked that he would support a woman who jeopardized the security of our nation, and the lives of our troops, by her insane contempt for classified information. Popovich must know he would be in jail had he compromised national security during his military career as Hillary Clinton did.
Popovich wonders how evangelical Christians, 81 percent, could vote for Trump. He must be shocked to know that his fellow veterans voted for Trump by a margin of 3 to 1. In fact, in the key states where veterans are influential, Popovich’s fellow veterans may have been responsible for Trump’s victory.
Popovich wonders where he is living and who he is living with. He obviously believes half of America are “deplorables.” He is living with evangelicals and veterans, perhaps the most value-oriented cohorts in our country. Evangelicals are horrified to know about Hillary’s support for abortion.
Popovich is living in a country where veterans understand leadership. They know Hillary is not a leader, nor is Barack Obama. Veterans know Hillary will follow the policies of Obama, who has taken our military to unprecedented levels of unreadiness and treated suffering veterans beyond cruel in their hospitals. Popovich is a loser because of the votes of deplorables, his fellow veterans and Christians.
Would Popovich run his team as Obama and Hillary have run this country? Their agenda is antithetical to sports. Would he field a team half female in an all-male NBA? Would he keep a player with a record like Hillary, who exists simply because she married the boss? Trump has said he would run the country as the Spurs are run, not how their coach votes.
Popovich said we are Rome. No, but we are on the way.
It is no sure deal, but if Trump governs for life, readiness, morality and the family, we may be able to avoid the fate of Rome. We will fail if people like Popovich get in the way.
However, I hope he does not leave the country with his fellow leftists; the Spurs need him.
