Becky Hammon works for arguably the best coach in the NBA, and one of the best coaches of all-time in San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich. Moreover, her boss, who is known not only for his Xs and Os, but his bluntness when it comes to things on his mind.

And, in a recent interview, Popovich pulled no punches in his thoughts on President Trump:

“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 better than anyone just how unfit he is, and yet they choose to do nothing about it. This is their shame most of all.”
