Former Major League Baseball Pitcher Curt Schilling has taken on the brave (read: stupid) task of challenging Progressive Democrat Elizabeth Warren for her seat in the Senate. Schilling announced just this week, less than three weeks until the election, that he would be challenging Warren for her seat – fat chance.

His announcement came during an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper where Schilling went on a bizarre rant concerning members of the Jewish faith and their political affiliations.

Said Schilling:

“I would like to ask you something as a person who is practicing the Jewish faith and has since you were young. I don’t understand – and this is, maybe this is the amateur, non-politician in me – I don’t understand how people of Jewish faith can back the Democratic Party, which over the last 50 years has been so clearly anti-Israel, so clearly anti-Jewish Israel.”

Tapper was clearly a bit stunned to be asked such a strange question during the time when he is meant to do the interviewing. He responded that while he cannot speak for all Jews, it was likely that many who supported the Democratic party prioritized the Israel issue less than they did support for social programs and the like.

Just another amateur go-getter with no plan, inspired by the Trump campaign.
