President Joe Biden Says He Would Support Moving MLB All-Star Game Out of Atlanta

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?

  1. Georgia and 40 states.. so this is a rule in 41/50 states? Getting 82% of any group to agree on anything is dam near impossible. Yet 82% of our states agree. Why is their outrage again?
    Oh and baseball related, yeah if they move the game I am done with them. Basically am anyways, if not for outkick articles would have no idea opening day was today and I was the guy who used to take opening day off work every year to watch.

  2. It’s interesting how this group has called out 2 professional sports with the least amount of black players to do the heavy lifting. Why not pressure the Hawks or Falcons not to play? Why not University athletics at UGA or Georgia Tech?

  3. This guy is a really sad human being seems to always be taking the sides of the criminal lying type but then again look at his appointments there is nothing in the bill that prevents folks from voting only cheating I mean come on man.

  4. The idiot referenced the NBA, who eventually reversed course on the SJW nonsense when the ratings cratered. MLB doesn’t have the chops to be messing with their audience. I hate the Left for sucking the joy out of everything they touch.
