Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr has not been one to remain quiet when it comes to the issues facing the United States today.
One quick check of Kerr’s social media accounts, and it becomes increasingly clear that he’s not a fan of those in power at the White House or within the United States Senate.
Here’s the latest example.
Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr puts GOP leader on blast
This was in response to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R) calling out democrats for wanting Washington D.C. to become the 51st state in the union. Specifically, McConnell noting that two senate seats in the far left region would impact balance of power.
Kerr has been an outspoken critic of current gun laws in the United States. Hence, the three-time NBA champion head coach calling out McConnell for his supposed double standards as it relates to the will of the American people.
Steve Kerr has been an outspoken critic of GOP leadership, President Trump included
It’s no surprise that Kerr would go this route. He’s joined in with fellow NBA champion head coach Gregg Popovich in calling out President Trump, among others.
It’s been seen on a never-ending loop on Kerr’s Twitter account.
Kerr has the overriding support of a more liberal Warriors organization and a region in Northern California that’s seen as more progressive than others.
He has in the past urged his players to speak out, too. They did so in opting against visiting President Trump after winning back-to-back titles late last decade.
2019-20 NBA season to restart with Black Lives Matter protests as a backdrop
Commissioner Adam Silver has urged his players to remain active when it comes to forcing for social reforms in the United States. He has also backed star players in spats with President Trump in the past.
The backdrop to the 2019-20 resuming in Orlando is the ongoing Black Lives Matter movement following the murder of George Floyd by a then-Minneapolis police officer back on May 25. The expectation is that there’s going to be widespread protests and displays of solidarity with those calling for change.
As for the Warriors, the five-time defending Western Conference champs are not one of 22 teams set to resume the season.
When they take to the court again, likely in December, the 2020 presidential election will have already been decided. Guess we can bet who Kerr will be pulling for.
