You know Curt Schilling. He's the guy who won a World Series MVP with the Diamondbacks, and made a bloody sock famous with the Boston Red Sox.
Nowadays, he's the dude who makes f***ing crazy political statements.
Last August, while on assignment at the Little League World Series (which, to make perfectly clear, is a baseball tournament for children under age 13), Schilling turned to social media to compare Muslim extremism to Nazi Germany. ESPN subsequently removed Schilling from the Little League broadcast team and suspended him from ESPN Sunday Night Baseball coverage.
Even during his ESPN suspension, Schilling didn't fully curb his social media activity, tweeting more anti-Muslim rhetoric.
This week, Schilling is getting right to the point on the presidential campaign. While appearing on Kansas City's 610 AM sports talk radio station, baseball conversation turned into politics. When pressed if Hillary Clinton should go to prison, Schilling revived the heat that made him a six-time All-Star.
"I hope she does," he said. "If I'm gonna believe, and I don't have any reason not to believe, that she gave classified information on hundreds if not thousands of emails on a public server after what happened to General Petraeus, she should buried under a jail somewhere."
Schilling spent much of the last decade-and-a-half living in Massachusetts, and his name was rumored as a potential replacement candidate for Ted Kennedy's vacant senate seat in 2009. On Tuesday night, hours after Schilling's comments, Clinton won the Massachusetts Democratic Primary.
