Trump calls for baseball boycott after MLB pulls All-Star Game from Atlanta
Former President Trump called for a baseball boycott after the MLB announced it is pulling the All-Star Game from Atlanta to protest the new law. In a statement, he said,
“Baseball is already losing tremendous numbers of fans, and now they leave Atlanta with their All-Star Game because they are afraid of the Radical Left Democrats who do not want voter I.D., which is desperately needed, to have anything to do with our elections. Boycott baseball and all other woke companies that are interfering with Free and Fair elections.”
Several Republican lawmakers in Congress have said they will seek to end the league’s special status as a legally protected monopoly.
Keith Olbermann calls for a boycott of The Masters golf tournament
Keith Olbermann, meanwhile, said on Twitter that the decision to pull the All-Star game out of Atlanta was “an outstanding first reply to the war racists declared on America,” and called on people to boycott The Masters golf tournament next.
In another tweet, he implied that the tournament name is a reference to slavery.
“Think it’s a coincidence that a golf tournament in an ex-slave state is named “The Masters”?” he asked.
According to The Golf Channel, the name refers to “the masters of golf” who play in the golf major.
In October, the former ESPN and MSNBC host posted an angry rant in which he called President Trump a terrorist who must be destroyed, and said that his enablers must be prosecuted, convicted, and removed from society.
