Spurs coach Gregg Popovich supports second Trump impeachment: ‘Least that we can do’

San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich is rarely ambiguous.

You know where he stands.

And he made it clear on Tuesday he supports a second impeachment of President Donald Trump.

“The fact that there’s going to be an impeachment beginning tomorrow is the least that we can do,” Popovich told reporters. “I don’t have a lot of faith that the 25th Amendment is going to be invoked. This impeachment will say a lot. If anything, it will bring people together rather than be divisive. It will bring people together who may have thought a different way and realize what Trump can really do and what he really is. So I’m all for it. It’s a good move.”

Popovich, who graduated from the Air Force Academy and served his five-year military commitment in the U.S. Air Force, has been a Trump critic from day one.

“As a citizen, what we all watched was horrific, and we all saw the lack of concern and incompetence on the part of our president, which is really sad,” Popovich said. “He is what he is, but what that does for our democracy and our country and our standing and our credibility, let alone the safety for all those people in the building, is just enough to fry your brain. It is something you can’t even conceive of.”

He was heartened to see some Republicans support impeachment.

“To see people like (Wyoming GOP Rep.) Liz Cheney come out today and said what she said really warms your heart,” Popovich said. “She’s a Republican. Trumpism is a cult. She’s a real Republican. I’m a Democrat. Her values are just as important as my values. That’s what you talk out. That’s what you compromise. Crazy nuts, wack jobs, conspiracy theorists have gotten us to this point.”

Of course, Popovich saved some ire for others. “It would be laughable if it wasn’t dangerous and sickening, when (Reps. Kevin) McCarthy and (Mark) Meadows and (Sens. Josh) Hawley and (Ted) Cruz talk about we shouldn’t do any impeachment because that might be divisive. I mean, it’s hilarious the level of hypocrisy they would reach and the shame they would not feel.

"As I've said before, they just think we're stupid. They are so full of themselves, so full of hubris, that they actually think a sane person is going to buy that argument."
