Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich has never been one to hold back on his criticism of President Donald Trump, and that's no exception during the longest government shutdown in U.S. history.

While the Spurs volunteered Monday at the Champions Against Hunger dinner, a fundraiser for the San Antonio Food Bank, Popovich spoke his mind on the government shutdown, now in its fourth week.

"It's just a shame that so many people are affected by what President Trump and our politicians have done. We all know it's really for no good reason," Popovich told reporters. "It's a prop. It's childish. Petty. But everyone else pays."

Coach Pop also had a suggestion for what big names in D.C. could do during the shutdown.



"It'll be nice if every congressman and congresswoman didn't accept any paychecks while no one else is getting it," he said.

That, or Trump could just stop throwing a hissy fit.
