President Joe Biden does not think the Major League Baseball All-Star Game should be played in the state of Georgia. In fact, he would “strongly support” moving the game out of Atlanta due to the new voting laws in the state.
During an interview with ESPN on Wednesday night, Biden had plenty to say about those new laws.
“This is Jim Crow on steroids, what they are doing in Georgia and 40 other states,” he said, via CBS News. “What it’s all about — imagine passing a law saying you cant provide water or food for someone standing in a line to vote. Can’t do that? Come on. Or you close a polling place at 5 o’clock when working people just get off?
“This is all about keeping working folks and ordinary folks that I grew up with from being able to vote. Come on.”
As a result, Biden is now supporting the idea of moving the game.
“I think today’s professional athletes are acting incredibly responsibly,” Biden told Sage Steele in the interview. “I would strongly support them doing that. People look to them. They’re leaders.”
At least we’re making some progress on the logic. A civil rights group wanted to move the Masters away from Augusta National without realizing that the Masters can only be played at Augusta National. OutKick founder Clay Travis absolutely ripped the ignorance of that demand earlier this week.
The All-Star Game can be played anywhere, but will the MLB actually move it? If so, how would you react to that decision?
