Curt Schilling: Hillary Clinton ‘should be buried under a jail somewhere’
Curt Schilling is making headlines once again for his political comments.
Schilling generously spent an hour on the radio with our friends Danny Parkins and Carrington Harrison on the popular 610 Sports in Kansas City Tuesday. After talking baseball at first, they ventured into political talk. That’s when Schilling, who is currently registered as an independent, made his controversial remarks.
Schilling is anti-Hillary Clinton and says he wants to see her go to prison. He even said “she should be buried under a jail somewhere.”
“If she’s allowed to get to the general election before she’s in prison, I’ll be stunned and upset. Because I think she’s shown her true colors all along the way. I’ll ask you this: do you see her being anything even remotely different than what we’ve had?” Schilling asked the hosts.
He was then asked whether he thinks she should be in prison.
“I hope she does,” Schilling answered. “If I’m gonna believe, and I don’t have any reason not to believe, that she gave classified information on hundreds if not thousands of emails on a public server after what happened to General Petraeus, she should buried under a jail somewhere.”
Schilling says he is opposed to both parties and also criticized Donald Trump, who is the frontrunner for the Republican nomination. He is unhappy with the state of the country both domestically and abroad.
Schilling is certainly entitled to his opinion, and anyone who hires him knows he has many political beliefs. But you have to wonder whether ESPN will have anything to say about the comments. Recall that Schilling was suspended by ESPN last summer for these tweets about Muslims. He remains a broadcaster for the network.
