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.
