Warriors coach Steve Kerr posts hilarious tweet on The Onion’s Donald Trump satire
Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr had an interesting response to a tweet that The Onion sent in President Donald Trump’s direction over the weekend.
On Sunday, The Onion posted an article with a thumbnail of Trump giving a speech. In the satirical caption, the media outlet wrote, “Federal Officials Investigating Man Posting Racist Attacks Online Armed With Millions Of Explosives.”
Kerr, who is not exactly a fan of the 45th president, saw The Onion’s post and decided to retweet it with a message of his own:
Everyone keep an eye out for this man. https://t.co/7B1o7Eoa3i

Kerr has been outspoken about his displeasure with the sitting president for a while. In fact, after winning the 2017 NBA championship, he told Trump that the Warriors would not be making the traditional trip to the White House. Kerr claimed that Trump has created a divisive mindset within the American people:
“In general, going to the White House as part of a championship team is awesome,” Kerr said in 2017. “It’s an incredible honor. You honor the office. You honor the institution.
“I can speak from personal experience,” Kerr added. “I’ve had the pleasure to meet with (Ronald) Reagan, George Bush, (Bill) Clinton, George W. Bush and (Barack) Obama. I didn’t necessarily agree with all of them, but it was an incredible honor to be in their presence. There was a respect for the office. And also a respect from not only us, but from the president himself.
“We would — in normal times — very easily be able to set aside political differences and go visit, have a great time” Kerr said. “That would be awesome. But these are not ordinary times. (These are) probably the most divisive times in my life.”
Earlier this month, Kerr called out Trump again, claiming that the tweets he sent out about four freshman congresswomen were racist in nature. As part of Trump’s string of tweets, the president stated that these congresswomen should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came.”
However, all four of the women are American citizens. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) was born outside of the United States, but she immigrated to the U.S. at a young age and became a citizen at 17.
In the end, Kerr is adamant in his beliefs and will continue to criticize President Trump as he sees fit.
