QOTD: Coach Kerr's Smackdown Of Trump

Yesterday, the NBA's Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr had what might be the best retort to bigoted dotard and bum Donald "Rump" Trump's unhinged call for players who kneel during the national anthem to be fired, when Kerr said:
The idea of civil discourse with a guy who is tweeting and demeaning people and saying the things he’s saying is sort of far-fetched. Can you picture us really having a civil discourse with him?....How about the irony of, ‘Free speech is fine if you’re a neo-Nazi chanting hate slogans, but free speech is not allowed to kneel in protest?' No matter how many times a football player says, ‘I honor our military, but I’m protesting police brutality and racial inequality,’ it doesn’t matter. Nationalists are saying, ‘You’re disrespecting our flag.’ Well, you know what else is disrespectful to our flag? Racism. And one’s way worse than the other.” (emphasis added)
As NBA star Chis Paul tweeted yesterday, Rump isn't man enough to confront the African-American players he's demeaning face-to-face, so he lets his little fingers do the talking.
