CLEVELAND (AP) — An hour before the first pitch of a series opener against Kansas City, a steady flow of fans stream into the Indians’ team shop at Progressive Field to buy new All-Star merchandise and other Cleveland gear — some bearing his unmistakable smiling face.
Broadcaster and former NBA Star Charles Barkley often dips into politics during his sports commentary. However, on Friday he took it a step further by saying the fans should not be able to vote on the All-Star game because they also voted for President Trump. Which, in Barkley’s mind, proves that the fans have bad judgment.
Ever the showman, Trump invited some of the most prominent voices in the conservative movement on stage to urge supporters to vote on Tuesday.
