San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich lashed out at President Donald Trump over his White House disinvite of Golden State Warrriors star Stephen Curry, declaring America's become "an embarrassment in the world."

At the Spurs' media day Monday, Popovich likened Trump's decision to a child's temper tantrum, MySanAntonio.com reported.

"It's like a sixth grader is going to have a party in his backyard and he finds out somebody might not come, so he disinvites them," he said. "Although it's disgusting, it's also comical."

"Our country is an embarrassment in the world," he said.

He also weighed in on the NFL protest of Trump's criticism of players who won't stand during the national anthem.

"They have our full support," he said. "No matter what they might want to do or not to do, it is important to them to be respected by us, and there is no recrimination no matter what might take place unless it's ridiculously egregious."
