You’d figure pro basketball coach Gregg Popovich had more important things to care about Tuesday. His San Antonio Spurs team was taking on the Miami Heat in an NBA game.
He had a spare moment to share his thoughts on the New Hampshire primary with the nation, though.
As is customary during the game, Popovich was interviewed by a reporter for TNT, which was broadcasting the game nationally. Popovich is known for giving curt answers on-camera, especially during in-game spots.
This time, what he didn’t say stood out.
Asked by reporter David Aldridge if he was interested in election results, Popovich asked, “who is it?”
Informed that Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump placed in first in their respective primaries, he gave Aldridge a look, shook his head, and walked away.
Popovich has shared his political views before. Speaking out on the 2013 federal government shutdown, Popovich quipped: “It’s funny how each of them talks about what the American people want . . . How the hell do these people know what they want? They live in a fishbowl.”
