Marco Rubio Destroys Rob Manfred Who Has Yet To Resign From Augusta National

The battle between Major League Baseball and those who see the sport's leaders as selectively woke has erupted to a senatorial level as Florida's Marco Rubio has now jumped into the fray. In a letter to Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred, Rubio eviscerated the commissioner who has yet to denounce his membership at Augusta National. "I write to ask you whether you intend to maintain your membership at Augusta National Golf Club. As you are well aware, the exclusive members-only club is located in the State of Georgia," Rubio wrote.

"I am under no illusion you intend to resign as a member from Augusta National Golf Club. To do so would require a personal sacrifice, as opposed to the woke corporate virtue signaling of moving the All-Star Game from Atlanta," the senator concluded.

And with that, Manfred has a major decision to make. How woke is he willing to go, especially when his side, led by the lunatic fringe of ESPN's Bomani Jones and Keith Olbermann has been beating the 'Boycott The Masters' drum? Is Rob ready to man up and tell the Masters he won't be back to enjoy a round? Is Rob ready to go back to fighting for a badge like the commoners?

Rob's screwed here since Major League Baseball, led by Manfred, is now of the mindset that it must punish Georgia for passing a voting law it doesn't agree with. He can't attend the 2021 Masters and needs the dust to settle in 2022 to get back to a place he loves.
