Former Major League Baseball right-handed relief pitcher Goose Gossage gives us hope for a better tomorrow when you consider he once was a life-long Democrat.
In an interview this week, Gossage went off on Democrats, saying he’s praying that they “go off the cliff to never be heard from again.”
The New York Yankees great was contacted by NJ.com for a comment on the death of Yankees managing partner Hank Steinbrenner, the son of the late Yankees owner George Steinbrenner.
As the news outlet said, it only took 2 1/2 minutes before President Donald Trump’s name came up.
“Trump is the only guy on the planet who could replace Mr. Steinbrenner!” Gossage joked, after noting that son Hank was not named his father’s successor.
The former player was then asked if he supports Trump — a natural question in 2020, given that there is no in-between allowed, you either love Trump or you hate him.
“I love Trump,” Gossage boldly declared. “I have Trump signs in my yard and I wear my Trump hat everywhere.”
He lives in Colorado Springs — while the state is more liberal as a whole, the city leans conservative.
“I’m hoping and I’m praying that these (bleepers) go off the cliff to never be heard from again,” Gossage said. “All of them! Nancy Pelosi and that lying Chuck Schumer. And then (bleeping) Robert Mueller and the (bleeping) Mueller Report, and the FBI … I hope some of them go to jail!”
Eyes open to the truth, Gossage said liberals are dishonest and obsessed with trying to get Trump out of office.
“It’s just lies, lies, BS, BS,” he said. “They don’t even respect the election. The majority of liberals still think the Russians got him in office. They all want him out of power.”
Giving voice to a belief many have in America, that being that Democrats are hoping the coronavirus pandemic tanks the country’s economy bad enough to help presumed Democratic nominee Joe Biden beat Trump in the 2020 election, Gossage’s words are music to the ears.
“I cannot even fathom that they would go to this length, but this is the last straw,” he said. “Where would you attack Trump? In the economy. That’s all they have. And let me tell you something, people are (bleeping) dying and the liberals could give a rat’s ass.”
And make no mistake, the former star pitcher has Biden nailed.
“Our civil liberties are under siege. And Biden, he can’t put (bleeping) two sentences together!” he said.
Pointing out that he once backed Barack Obama for president, Gossage said after he heard Trump in the 2016 presidential election, he was on board.
“I was a Democrat my whole life,” he said. “I voted for Obama. When Trump started running and saying all the things that he was saying, like bringing bring back manufacturing, drain the swamp … I jumped ship.”
And just like that, Gossage became “an angry conservative,” as NJ.com characterized him.
“I’m scared to death of these crooked (bleepers),” he said. “They’ll do anything to get rid of Trump.”
“Look at the middle class that built this country. It’s gone,” Gossage continued. “The middle class is in China. All of those factories that were in the ‘40s ‘50s ‘60s and ‘70s … they all boarded up and shipped over, and Trump is bringing it back.”
“People have got to get their lives in order, man. It’s just common sense. That’s all it is.”
