Warriors' Chriss calls Trump 'dumba--' for coronavirus issues

Warriors

Marquese Chriss didn't hold back on Tuesday morning. 

The Warriors' center called President Donald Trump a "dumba--" on Twitter for his handling of the deadly coronavirus pandemic. 

Chriss was responding to a video in which Trump told a crowd in Swanton, Ohio that "it affects virtually nobody" when talking about the coronavirus, and called for schools to be open despite concerns raised by a large number of COVID-19 cases across the country. 

On Tuesday, the United States reached over 200,000 deaths from COVID-19. An average of 858 people have died every day from the disease since the first known US coronavirus death on Feb. 6, according to CNN.

Tuesday marks National Voter Registration Day, and Warriors coach Steve Kerr will be assisting Democrat nominee Joe Biden with a "virtual phone bank" event out of Tucson, Ariz. starting at 4:00 p.m. PT. About 350 Warriors employees tuned into a video session last Friday with California Secretary of State Alex Padilla in a voting tutorial as the Presidential Election nears. 

Kerr is an outspoken critic of Trump, and often uses his platform in an effort to try to defeat Trump in November. The Warriors also announced the locations of three voting centers earlier this month for the upcoming general election.
