Gov. Abbott declines invite to throw out first pitch at Rangers’ opening game

In a Monday statement, Texas Governor Greg Abbott said he will not be throwing out the first pitch at the opening game of the Texas Rangers’ season.

“I was looking forward to it – until Major League Baseball adopted what has turned out to be a false narrative about the election law reforms in Georgie, and, based on that false narrative, moved the MLB All-Star Game from Atlanta,” Abbott said.

“It is shameful that America’s pastime is not only being influenced by partisan political politics, but also perpetuating false political narratives,” he added.

Last week, MLB made the decision to move its All Star Game out of the state of Georgia over a newly enacted election law that Democrats argue resembles Jim Crow Laws, arguing that it restricts voting access to Black voters.

“Over the last week, we have engaged in thoughtful conversations with Clubs, former and current players, the Players Association, and The Players Alliance, among others, to listen to their views. I have decided that the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport is by relocating this year’s All-Star Game and MLB Draft,” Commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement.

Many other companies such as Coca-cola and Delta Airlines have come out publicly against the new law, including former President Donald Trump, who is calling on Americans to boycott the companies.

On the other side of the aisle, some Democrats like Stacey Abrams have urged Americans not to boycott the companies that don’t condemn on the law.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
