Most notably, he has not shied away from criticizing President Donald Trump whenever the opportunity arises. After Trump let out a string of controversial tweets (surprising, right?) on Sunday morning, Kerr made sure to let everyone know how he felt:
Come on members of Congress, call out the president for his racist tweets this morning. Show some leadership. It’s the job you were elected to do.— Steve Kerr (@SteveKerr) July 15, 2019
Kerr's pointed words come in response to, among others, these tweets from the president, who told his female adversaries in congress to go back and "fix" the countries from which they (supposedly) originally came.
....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 14, 2019
Of course, Twitter has since astutely pointed out that three of the four Congresswomen to which Trump was referring were born in the United States.
Kerr continues to champion players and coaches who have no interest in shutting up and dribbling, but rather those who hope to use their platform to create political change.
The coach shows no signs that he plans to hold his tongue now or in the future.
