MLB umpire threatens “Cival War” if Trump is impeached
Drake tweeted about the ongoing House impeachment inquiry into Mr. Trump. “I will be buying an AR-15 tomorrow, because if you impeach MY PRESIDENT this way, YOU WILL HAVE ANOTHER CIVAL WAR!!! #MAGA2020,” he wrote, according to ESPN.
The Major League Baseball Umpires’ Association issued a statement regarding Drake’s tweets: “Rob is a passionate individual and an outstanding umpire. He chose the wrong way to convey his opinion about our great country. His posting does not represent the view of the MLBUA or reflect those of the umpires we represent.”
Drake was not working postseason games this year.
This is the second controversy to mire the 2019 World Series that has nothing to do with baseball. MLB is also investigating thewith a troubling history that an Astros executive apparently directed to a group of female reporters.
A Sports Illustrated reporter said Astros assistant general manager Brandon Taubman turned to the female reporters, one of whom was wearing a domestic violence awareness bracelet, and yelled: “Thank God we got Osuna! I’m so f***ing glad we got Osuna!” He was referring to pitcher Roberto Osuna, who was picked up by the Astros after he was arrested on domestic violence charges in 2018. Osuna received a 75-game suspension but assault charges were later dropped.
