Detroit Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy has spoken about Donald Trump in the weeks leading up to the election.

Now that Trump has been declared the President-elect, the Pistons head coach is not holding back.

"We just elected an openly brazen, misogynist leader," Van Gundy said Wednesday morning, according to MLive's Aaron McMann .

He spoke to reporters before the Pistons and Suns game in Phoenix.

"We have just thrown a good part of our population under the bus," he continued. "I’m having a hard time being with people. I’m going to walk into this arena tonight and realize that most of these people voted for him. Like, [expletive], I don't have any respect for that."
