Donald Trump has called on his Make America Great Again supporters to “cancel” baseball after the MLB has had the testicles to grow a pair of balls. The decision to move the game from Atlanta was made due to the outcry over the controversial voting bill Governor Brian Kemp recently signed into law. Several Atlanta-based companies – including Coca-Cola, and Delta Airlines – have been critical of the new bill.
Democrats claim the bill is restrictive, while Republicans claim it provides expanded access to voting.
The MLB commissioner, Robert Manfred Jr, announced Friday on a Twitter post that both the All-Star game and the subsequent draft would be moved from Atlanta.
Former president Trump, who has had difficulty with transparency – often while accusing his opponents of lacking transparency – “let the cat out of the bag” when he responded to the commissioner’s statement with his own statement via Save America PAC.
“With an attitude like that, it’s no wonder that baseball is losing tremendous numbers of fans,” Trump said, apparently unaware that a tremendous number of those fans were lost due to COVID restrictions, none of which he had anything to do with. “And now they’re moving their stadium with their All-Star game because they’re afraid of the Radical Left Democrats who do not want voter ( suppression ), which is desperately needed ( if we are to ever win another election ).
“Cancel baseball – like they cancelled us – and all of the woke companies that are interfering with Free and Fair elections ( by suppressing our right to suppress the vote of undocumented immigrants, Antifa and Black Lives Matter ). Are you listening Coke, Delta, and all! ( We don’t want to suppress anyone’s vote. Just the votes of the Radical Left who want everyone to vote. If we allowed everyone to vote, Antifa would burn down entire cities and incite riots and Black Lives Matter would march down our city streets chanting, ‘Republicans in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon.’ That’s why Governor Kemp wrote the new legislation. It has absolutely nothing to do with voter suppression.”
When asked for comment about the former president’s statement, Governor Kemp responded, “President Trump is right. That’s exactly why I wrote the bill. It has nothing to do with voter suppression.”
