NBA star Steph Curry calls Trump an ‘ass’
Basketball star Stephen Curry slyly called President Trump an “ass” following comments from the CEO of Under Armour in an interview Wednesday.
Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank called Trump an “asset” to the country in an interview with CNBC.
Curry offered a different interpretation of the president in an interview with the San Jose Mercury News.
“I agree with that description, if you remove the ‘et’” from asset, Curry said.

Plank joined in a group of business leaders who met with Trump in late January to talk jobs.
“To have such a pro-business president is something that is a real asset for the country,” Plank said this week. “People can really grab that opportunity.”
Curry, who has a contract with Under Armor through 2024, said Plank’s work with the president won’t result in him breaking the contract, but said he hopes Under Armour does not conform to Trump’s values.
“It’s a fine line but it’s about how we’re operating, how inclusive we are, what we stand for. He’s the president,” Curry said. “There are going to be people that are tied to them. But are we promoting change? Are we doing things that are going to look out for everybody? And not being so self-serving that it’s only about making money, selling shoes, doing this and that. That’s not the priority. It’s about changing lives. I think we can continue to do that.”
Curry is the star of Golden State Warriors based in Oakland, Calif.
Fellow basketball star LeBron James came out against Trump’s executive order barring citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S.
“I am not in favor of this policy or any policy that divides and excludes people,” James said, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “I stand with the many, many Americans who believe this does not represent what the United States is all about. And we should continue to speak out about it.”
