Obama held an interview with ESPN – at a Cuban baseball game – after the ISIS terrorists attack in Belgium.
Obama started out the interview joking about Michelle. He then got serious for the next sixty seconds about the deadly attacks in Brussels. Nine Americans were injured in the attacks including a US serviceman and his family.
Obama made his remarks from a Cuban baseball game:
“The world has to unite against terrorism… They cannot defeat America. They don’t produce anything. They don’t have a message that appeals to the mass majority of Muslims. What they can do is scare, and, and, and, make people afraid, and…”
Obama then lectured on Cuban society from the baseball stadium.
Obama spent a few minutes lecturing on racism in America, “We still have a long way to go.”
Then he lashed out at former Major League Baseball player Eduardo Pérez after he poked fun of Obama’s pitching skills.
Via Business Insider:
Eduardo Perez also asked Obama about the previous first pitches he’s thrown out at games. He jokingly asked Obama “you didn’t play much baseball, did you?”
“You know what, Eduardo, can I just make a point?” Obama said. “My dad wasn’t a Hall of Famer.”
Pérez’s father, Tony Pérez, was a Hall of Fame infielder who spent most of his career with the Cincinnati Reds.
This was unbelievable!
