Detroit Pistons coach, Stan Van Gundy, just doesn’t “get” it.
After a life built around basketball – growing up as a coach’s son and playing college ball for his father, playing in college and working his way up as a college coach to the NBA level, Van Gundy seems to have lost touch with the simple fact that the life of the nation doesn’t revolve around grown men in shorts chasing a ball and collecting millions of dollars from fans who actually have to work to pay for their tickets.
Van Gundy, who took a page or two from the Democrat talking points playbook, called Republican Donald Trump all the tired, overused and “under-proved” names – misogynist, racist, sexist, homophobe – during the campaign also had some choice words for the voters.
“It’s like the majority of the population in our country is retarded or something.”
Casting the election on purely racial tones, rather than on matters of policy, on Democrat Hillary Clinton’s flawed candidacy and troubling record, or the perception by more than two-thirds of the country that we are “on the wrong track,” Van Gundy went on to paint the voters as… no surprise… racists.
