Listen to Clay Travis call out Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr after the politically outspoken Kerr, a frequent critic of President Donald Trump’s every move, suddenly went radio silent on the NBA’s nightmare PR run-in with one of the world’s most intolerant countries.

Check out the audio below as Clay rips Kerr apart for conveniently keeping quiet and selling out to Chinese-mandated censorship.
