It's been a while since Steph Curry has gone directly at President Donald Trump on Twitter, but that's exactly what he did Saturday.
In an early morning tweet, President Trump called the city of Baltimore a "disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess." Those words caught the attention of CNN anchor Victor Blackwell, who responded with an emotional monologue defending his hometown.
Blackwell's words caused Curry to react. The Warriors superstar defended Baltimore and took shots at President Trump.
It's this kind of boldness that our country needs! Keep calling him out. I'm not from Baltimore- but I know countless people who are. Teammates, family, hardworking employees. All People that represent the best qualities of what it means to be American! & who want to live there!

Curry wasn't the only member of the Warriors franchise encouraging people to watch Blackwell's monologue. His coach, Steve Kerr, got in on the act, too.
Nearly two years ago, Curry and Trump got into a war of words over the Warriors' invitation to the White House to celebrate their 2017 NBA title.
After Curry said he didn't want to go to the White House, President Trump withdrew the team's invite.
Instead of going to the White House that year, the Warriors spent time with school children in the Washington D.C. area.

Curry knows the difference between right and wrong. The words directed by President Trump at the citizens of Baltimore were wrong.
Kudos to Curry for saying the right thing at the right moment.
