One-term ex-president Donald Trump went on Newsmax yesterday for an interview that was equal parts funny, sad, and infuriating. The host of the interview, Heather Childers, had a difficult time controlling the former president when he went off into tangents. Trump complained about the 2020 election being rigged, of course with zero pushback, and brought up ballot dumps, “illegal immigrants” voting, and dead people voting. The former president also complained about the Supreme Court treating him unfairly when they followed the law rather than being subservient to him.
The interview then shifted focus over to the MLB and its decision to pull the All-Star game out of Atlanta over Georgia’s recently-passed voter suppression law. Trump in recent days has joined a chorus of right-wing voices calling for a boycott of the MLB. Childers asked Trump about this and he had a peculiar response, which was to say, “I’m just not very interested in baseball for the last number of years. It’s not appropriate.” Trump went on to say that he has a tough time finding professional baseball in his programming lineup on cable TV. It’s not clear whether this was Trump being dismissive, telling a joke, or if he was just having an old man “get off my lawn” kind of moment.
