Luke Scott Does Not Believe President Obama Was Born in America

Baltimore Orioles slugger Luke Scott has a reputation for his unconventional political views which aren’t exactly endearing him with most fans. In fact, the Orioles themselves have made it clear that Scott’s views don’t reflect those of the club. After all, how many clubs would be proud to say their left fielder is a birther?

“(President Obama’s) birth certificate has yet to be validated” Scott told The Kansas City Star. “If they can counterfeit $100 bills, I think it’s a million times easier to counterfeit a birth certificate, if you ask me,” Scott says. “So, all it is, let’s just see if it’s real. Anybody can produce a document, so let’s check it out.”

Talking to Luke Scott shouldn’t even be allowed for reporters at this point because it’s just too easy. It’s bad enough that we have football players who don’t believe airplanes brought down the Twin Towers, now we have to worry about baseball players not believing Obama was born as a U.S. citizen? Fantastic.

    why would he spend so much over the last few years to keep it from becoming public and then well here it is something is not right here .I don’t think it is real either. Also he cannot be believed some of everything Obama says stinks of untruthfulness. I myself don’t trust or believe anything that comes out of his mouth

    I would argue that most of us are here illegally since the first settlments in America were settled by the British ! So if Obama is illegal so are the rest of us ! My family came from Germany in the 19th century so !

    This story is very unfortunate. It suggests that general stereotypes of baseball players as morons is valid. People think: No wonder we see so many professional athletes with DUI’s and other stupid stuff.

    It is like Christine O’Donnell running for the Senate and “proving” that female candidates are fraudulent wackos, or Sarah Palin showing that women lack the intelligence to run for President. Those stereotypes are NOT in fact true, not all baseball players are complete idiots, but THIS ONE is. When we are presented with such easy “examples” the stereotypes are fed. The team should put a clause in this guy’s contract that prevents him from giving public interviews. He is an embarrassment to his family [at least I HOPE there is someone in his family with an IQ above 30] as well as the team and the city of Baltimore.
