FS1 Skip and Shannon: Undisputed co-host Shannon Sharpe said Sunday via Twitter that he would be fine paying upwards of $20 a gallon for gas, rather than have Donald Trump be president again.
The tweet received widespread response, with many Twitter users pushing back and arguing that it’s easy for someone in the position of Sharpe to say that rather than your average American. OutKick’s Clay Travis addressed Sharpe’s tweet during Monday’s OutKick The Show.
“Awful, awful, disastrous argument here,” Travis said. “It’s easy and I try to think about this all the time now that I’m a rich guy, it’s easy for a rich guy to forget about what normal, everyday people who are trying to make sure they can handle their family lives have to go through when gas prices skyrocket.
“… It is crazy to me that anyone would argue in favor of $20 gas over any presidential candidate. Whether you’re a Democrat, Republican or an Independent, $20 gas, if it ever actually occurred, would destroy this nation’s economy and it would destroy the economies all over the world. I would rather have any president than $20 gas. I’d rather have a Democrat, I’d rather have a Republican, I’d rather have an Independent.
“So, this anti-Donald Trump rhetoric breaks the brains of many different people out there where they’re willing to embrace wildly hyperbolic and awful for the country results, just so they can get their points in as it pertains to something like this. It is illogical, it is nonsensical, it is absolutely crazy.”
