UNC basketball coach Roy Williams is the latest head coach to sound off on President Donald Trump after leaving the court.
It has become common among basketball coaches to speak out against the president — whether it be due to his Muslim travel ban or other nonsensical and downright hateful rhetoric coming from the White House — and Williams took the opportunity to join the discussion following Thursday’s quarterfinals win over Miami in the ACC Tournament.
Williams was asked about how the ACC Tournament being played in New York helps exposure due to the size of the media market, when he began talking about how media markets aren’t as important as they used to be thanks to social media.
When he turned the topic to social media, Williams blasted Trump for tweeting out “bullsh–” on the regular.
“It used to be much more [important to play in a big market] than I think it is now,” Williams said, via Joe Ovies of WRALSportsFan.com. “Now everybody has got social media, and we don’t need The New York Times to find out what in the dickens is going on in our country. You know, our president tweets out more bulls— than anybody I’ve ever seen. We’ve got social media.
“In the old days, there’s no question it was the media capital of the world, but I’m not sure it is right now.”
Geez, Roy. Tell us how you really feel.
If Donald Trump catches wind of these comments, we may get to experience another unhinged Twitter tirade in the wee hours of the morning from our Commander-in-Tweet.
