While visiting Washington, D.C. in part to celebrate the 2016 NBA Championship without visiting the White House due to his team’s hatred of President Donald Trump, Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr poked fun at the President for taking an anti-gun rights position that Kerr himself agrees with.
Back on February 28th, while meeting with a bipartisan group of lawmakers in the wake of the Parkland, Florida school shooting, President Trump caused panic amongst his base and excitement amongst the anti-gun left, when he openly talked about being in favor of taking away a law-abiding American’s guns without due process.
“I like taking the guns early, like in this crazy man’s case that just took place in Florida … to go to court would have taken a long time.” Trump said, “Take the guns first, go through due process second.”
The next day, Kerr was asked during a short media availability if he was “pleasantly surprised” by Trump’s anti-gun rights comment, which gave one of sports loudest Trump critics a chance to make fun of the President by comparing him to a character from the movie Anchorman.
“He reminded me of ‘Anchorman,’” a laughing Kerr said, “when Brick ends up on the wrong side of the fight, and he’s like ‘yeah’ and they’re like ‘no, no Brick you’re on this side.’ … Sorry is that wrong? I’m in big trouble.
“I know I’m going to take all kinds of shit,” the coach added. “It was worth it.”
This is just more proof that for anti-Trump liberals like Steve Kerr, taking shots at President Trump is more important than advancing the ideas they claim to believe so strongly in.
