With our everyday lives quickly becoming inundated with political drama, those who once held a seat at the table are looking to extend their time in the spotlight by reinserting themselves into the fray.
The latest to push for a renewed bit of limelight is former President Barack Obama, who weighed in on the latest flap regarding the MLB and the State of Georgia.
Former Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump have weighed in on Major League Baseball’s decision to move its All-Star Game out of Atlanta in response to Georgia’s new sweeping election law that imposes significant new obstacles to voting.
Obama on Saturday congratulated the league “for taking a stand on behalf of voting rights for all citizens,” following MLB’s Friday announcement. The Democrat’s tweeted support of the move struck a starkly different tone from his Republican successor’s statement late Friday that called for a boycott of baseball and all of the “woke companies that are interfering with Free and Fair Elections.”
Georgia Governor Brian Kemp has recently signed into law an unpopular bill that reforms the ways in which Peach State voters will be able to cast their ballots, and that has been lambasted by critics as creating unnecessary restrictions on our right to elect our representatives.
