Curt Schilling Threatens To Run For President In 2024

Another notoriously offensive nonpolitician has his eyes on the White House.

Former Major League Baseball player Curt Schilling is apparently ready to bring his racism and homophobia to the White House in eight years. 

The outspoken conservative, who was fired from his job as an ESPN analyst in April after going on an anti-transgender rant, laid out his political plans in the comments section of a Facebook post on Sunday.

“I am going to run, soon,” the former All-Star pitcher wrote, “...state office first, white house in 8 years ... or 4 if by some amazing illegal event this country elects another clinton.”

In later comments, he displays just how unprofessional, childish and sexist he can be by using a host of profanities ― including calling Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton a “skank” and referring to politicians and other commenters as “dumb ass.” 

The internet is no stranger to Schilling’s vulgarity and bigotry.

ESPN suspended Schilling last year after he tweeted this controversial meme comparing Muslims to Nazis:

In March, while a guest on 610 Sports Radio in Kansas City, Schilling went on an extended rant about Clinton, saying he would be “stunned and upset” if she got to the general election before going to prison and that she “should be buried under a jail somewhere.” 

Schilling lost his ESPN job for good after posting a meme showing a man dressed in revealing women’s clothing. Apparently responding to North Carolina’s so-called bathroom law, Schilling commented: “A man is a man no matter what they call themselves. I don’t care what they are, who they sleep with, men’s room was designed for the penis, women’s not so much. Now you need laws telling us differently? Pathetic.”

Schilling went on to defend himself in a wordy blog post, in which he said he “didn’t post that ugly looking picture,” but “made a comment about the basic functionality of mens and womens restrooms, period.”
