In footage tweeted by ABC campaign reporter Zohreen Shah on Wednesday night, a reporter off-camera asked Yang after he shot some hoops which presidential candidate would he challenge to a basketball game if he had to choose.

“Well, he’s not a presidential candidate. It would be Donald Trump,” he said. “Because I would school him."

“Donald Trump, oh my gosh,” Yang went on, pretending how the game between him and the president would go, “He’d just be standing there, like, ‘uh, uh.’”

“And I’d be like, score left, score right, score jump shot,” Yang joked. “And he’d be like, I don’t know what he would do, he’d probably gas out at some point.”

The moment on Wednesday night comes a day after a poll showed Trump trailing Yang in New Hampshire in a theoretical 2020 matchup.

Zohreen Shah @Zohreen

I messaged @AndrewYang

about how he was debate prepping last week:

He said, “Having a mock debate in NY tonight with supporters. Going to play basketball in Houston next week to get loose.”

True to his word, Yang threw down on the court today - @GarciaReports
and I joined!

1. Nice thought...

But in a real game between them:

Yang: 1
Trump: Cardiac arrest.

2. Can Democrats really afford this sort of light-hearted crap at this stage?

I'm disappointed in Yang.

4. There was a reporter who'd interviewed him who stated Yang was prepping some kind of "stunt" tonight

He said that it would be something that would be attention-getting. The reporter stopped just short of using the term stunt (that I did) but his message was pretty clear. This makes me very uneasy.
