Legendary NFL Coach Mike Ditka told the cast on “Sunday NFL Countdown” that he will probably vote for Donald Trump.
Ditka also said Barack Obama was the “worst president we’ve ever had.”
ESPN worries this may be a problem because Ditka votes Republican. But the sports channel has no problem with its many far left commentators who regularly spew progressive nonsense.
Yahoo Sports reported:
ESPN has another potential image problem on its hands. Only two days after baseball analyst Curt Schilling ripped Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton, NFL analyst Mike Ditka blasted President Barack Obama as the “worst” president ever. He also said he’d probably vote for Donald Trump for president.
The longtime analyst on ESPN’s “Sunday NFL Countdown” made the comments Thursday during an appearance on the Bernie and Sid morning radio show on WABC-AM in New York. When asked about Obama by hosts Sid Rosenberg and Bernard McGuirk, Iron Mike unloaded on the commander in chief.
“Obama is the worst president we’ve ever had,” said the Pro Football Hall of Famer, who coached the 1985 Bears to a victory in Super Bowl XX.
Ditka believes Obama is a nice enough guy but that his leadership skills are “disgusting.” If Election Day were tomorrow, he said, he’d vote for the tough-talking Trump over Clinton or Republican rivals such as Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and John Kasich.
“Barack Obama’s a fine man. I mean, he’s pleasant. He would be great to play golf with. He’s not a leader. This country needs leadership. It needs direction. It needs somebody that steps up front. We need somebody like Ronald Reagan,” Ditka said.
“Every once in a while you’re going to get punched in the chops. But you keep going forward. That’s all there is to it,” he added. “You know it’s not always going to be a perfect situation, but to do what he does, there’s no leadership there. I think that becomes very disgusting to me.”
