Nothing infuriates Democrats more than when celebrities vote Republican.
They rely heavily on the support of celebrity liberals to win.
But one celebrity has gone rogue by attacking Adam Schiff, and Schiff is red with rage.
Steve Garvey was a longtime star-player in the MLB with an almost 20-year career from 1969 to 1987.
While he isn’t a Hall of Famer – he would belong more in the “Hall of Very Good” – he was a 10-time All Star and won the 1974 National League MVP.
As a famous athlete, Democrats expect support from him just like sports figure Colin Kaepernick or coaches Steve Kerr and Gregg Popovich – all whom have signed onto left-wing causes.
But that’s not at all what Garvey decided to do. He recently roasted Adam Schiff for lying to the American people during a public debate.
According to the New York Post, “California Republican Senate candidate and former MLB first baseman Steve Garvey zinged Rep. Adam Schiff during a primary debate Monday night, pointing out the House had censured the Democrat ‘for lying’ about allegations the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government to rig the 2016 presidential election.”
“I think you’ve been censured for lying,” Garvey leveled at Schiff. “And this is exactly what I’m talking about: career politicians who are trying to determine who we are by race or by color or by gender. They never listen. They have pre-arranged words to say.”
Garvey is right – Schiff was censured for the lies he told, and it’s publicly humiliated him right in the middle of his campaign for U.S. Senate.
“The California Democrat, who at the time of his allegations served as chair of the House Intelligence Committee, read portions of the now-debunked Steele dossier into the congressional record and said there was ‘ample evidence of collusion in plain sight,’” the New York Post continues.
“Three independent federal investigations by special counsel Robert Mueller, Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz and special counsel John Durham later found no such evidence existed.”
Although California is a deeply Democrat state, many California voters likely remember rooting for Garvey during his years with the Dodgers and Padres. If they like him and trust him, they may consider what he has to say.
And this is exactly what Adam Schiff is scared of.
Steve Garvey may turn out to be Adam Schiff’s kryptonite – which would be an embarrassing, although well-earned, end to Schiff’s tenure in politics.
