Ex-Red Sox pitcher and conservative firebrand Curt Schilling, guest-hosting on Boston Herald Radio’s Lawn on D broadcast yesterday, hurled some high, hard heat at liberal darling Elizabeth Warren, calling the Bay State senator “Hillary Clinton Jr.”
“She’s a Hillary Clinton Jr. in just about every possible way,” Schilling said on the “Morning Meeting” show. “Because you look at Hillary Clinton and I always think, how on Earth could anybody, much less a woman, man — I don’t care — get to the position she’s in, doing the things that she’s done?”
Warren and Clinton met yesterday in Washington after the Massachusetts senior senator finally endorsed the former secretary of state on Thursday, hours after President Obama did the same.
“(Clinton) said Elizabeth Warren is very much the same — preaches for equality while making hundreds of thousands of dollars speaking about free education when (Warren) gets $400,000 to teach a class,” Schilling said, referring to Warren’s former job as a Harvard law professor.
“A class, not classes, plural. … We’re almost desensitized to it,” he added. “It’s like, ‘Oh, she lied.’ It’s embarrassing for me as a conservative to see that and to see that in action.”
The former All-Star was abruptly fired from ESPN in April after sharing a Facebook post that appeared to be in opposition to a North Carolina law barring transgender people from using bathrooms and locker rooms designated for the opposite sex.
Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey said she expects the Warren endorsement to help bring the seemingly fractured Democratic Party back under the same tent — even as her lagging rival Bernie Sanders vows to stay in the race.
“Now is the time where everyone is going to come together,” Healey said. “Look, you saw President Obama (Thursday), senator Warren (Thursday), I expect that we’ll see and hear from senator Sanders.”
Healey added: “As folks start to focus on what really is at stake, who do you trust, who do you believe is going to put us in a better place four years from now, the answer couldn’t be clearer … (Warren) I think (has) taken on Donald Trump in ways that are spot-on in terms of calling him out for what he is and what he is about — which is somebody who’s only been about himself.”
Healey said Warren would make a “terrific vice president” and hopes she continues to “be aggressive in pointing out to the American public exactly what Donald Trump is all about, what he represents and why it’s so dangerous, and why people should be afraid of the specter of a Donald Trump presidency.”
