Steph Curry has sent the “et” home.
After Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank endorsed Donald Trump on Tuesday as an “asset” to the country, the Warriors star responded to his sponsor’s comment with a shorter, sharper label for the president.
“I agree with the description, if you remove the ‘et’ from asset,” Curry told The Mercury News.
Curry, who is one of Under Armour’s top endorsers, has mostly avoided using his status as the NBA’s two-time reigning MVP as a platform for political commentary. He said he was surprised to see Plank praising Trump in an interview with CNBC and felt compelled to have a chat with his sponsor.
“I spent all day yesterday on the phone with countless people at Under Armour, countless people in Kevin Plank’s camp, my team, trying to understand what was going on and where everybody stood on the issue,” Curry said.
