Steve Kerr tried to take the high road Thursday, but it didn't defuse the situation with President Donald Trump.
At 11:25 p.m. ET on Friday, President Trump fired up Twitter and took another shot at the Warriors coach.
So funny to watch Steve Kerr grovel and pander when asked a simple question about China. He chocked, and looks weak and pathetic. Don't want him at the White House!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 12, 2019
The latest tweet from President Trump continues the war of words between him and Kerr.
During a press conference Wednesday, President Trump called out Kerr and Spurs coach Gregg Popovich for what he believed were weak answers on the NBA-China controversy.
A day later, Kerr spoke to reporters in San Francisco and offered a thoughtful response. He shared stories of his experiences with previous presidents and how different things are now.
"I realize the horse was out of the barn a long time ago," Kerr said Thursday. "But for me personally, this was my experience with, wow, has the office sunken low. My hope is that we can find a mature unifier, from either party, to sit in that chair and try to restore some dignity to the Oval Office again. And I think it will happen."
The Warriors practice on Saturday, and Kerr likely will get his chance to respond to President Trump's latest tweet.
