Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred has confirmed that Major League Baseball is investigating two decidedly political tweets by a longtime umpire, reports ESPN. Rob Drake, who’s been a major league umpire since 1999 and full-time since 2010, made these two tweets that were deleted shortly thereafter. The account has since been deactivated.
The first, according to ESPN’s story:
Drake tweeted late Tuesday that he planned to buy an AR-15 rifle “because if you impeach MY PRESIDENT this way, YOU WILL HAVE ANOTHER CIVAL WAR!!! #MAGA2020.”
“You can’t do an impeachment inquiry from the basement of Capital (cq) Hill without even a vote! What is going on in this country?”
For one, the guy needs to learn to use a spellchecker. But how stupid of him.
