In an interview with Yahoo’s Big League Stew, Baltimore Orioles slugger Luke Scott slammed President Barack Obama and claimed that he wasn’t born in the United States.
Scott said that Obama doesn’t represent “anything what our forefathers stood for.”
“This country is basically built on an attitude. It’s a way of life…Obama, he doesn’t represent that. He represents, ‘Hey, everyone. Give me votes and I’ll give you stuff’,” Scott said.
Scott, 32, later added that the president was not being truthful about the location of his birth.
“He was not born here…If someone accuses me of not being born here, I can go — within 10 minutes — to my filing cabinet and I can pick up my real birth certificate and I can go, ‘See? Look! Here it is. Here it is.’ The man has dodged everything. He dodges questions, he doesn’t answer anything. And why? Because he’s hiding something.”
A spokesman for the Orioles has not yet offered any comment on the matter.
