It seems that when Phillies pitchers leave here they become emboldened politically.
First, Curt Schilling, who seems to think that political correctness got him fired at ESPN even though it was his culturally hostile and mean-spirited brain farts that did the trick.
And now Ryan Madson, who is pitching for the Oakland A’s, who says foreign-born ballplayers have nothing to fear from Donald Trump:
“I don’t think he’s worried about any Cuban players or any Mexican players,’’ Madson said of Trump. “Like he’s said, he has many Mexican Americans working for him, high up in his company.’’
Madson, who hails from Southern California, believes the idea behind the wall is to keep away terrorists – not necessarily from Mexico – who might try to infiltrate the U.S. through its southern border.
“I think the media has spun it in a way to make him look like he’s anti-immigrant, so I think it’s more their fault and how they’ve made him look than what he’s trying to do,’’ Madson said. “I don’t think he’s doing it in a way to be a Zionist. He’s not trying to seal us off from the world. He’s trying to just slow down or stop as much as he can what’s been happening here in America with the terrorists.’’
