This is what happens when you say ANYTHING bad about our President in Obamaland. Do you think Mike Ditka should be able to voice his opinion without fear of backlash?
Mike Ditka will be replaced as a panelist on ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown, it has been revealed.
The announcement came less than a week after Ditka, both a former player and coach for the Chicago Bears, revealed he believed Barack Obama was the worst president ‘we’ve ever had’.
Ditka, who has been a main panelist for the ESPN show since 2006, said Obama was a ‘fine man’ but not a leader when he went on WABC’S The Bernie & Sid Show last Thursday.
‘He would be great to play golf with,’ Ditka continued.
‘He’s not a leader. This country needs leadership. It needs direction. It needs somebody that steps up front.’
‘We need somebody like Ronald Reagan. Everyone once in a while you’re gonna get punched in the chops but you keep going forward. There’s all there is to it.’
Ditka, who once described himself as ‘ultra-ultra-ultra conservative’, also revealed his vote in the 2016 election will likely go to GOP front-runner Donald Trump, according to the Washington Post.
‘They people that hate him, hate him, but people like him because he says things that resonate with what they think,’ he said.
‘If I were to vote tomorrow, I’d probably vote for Trump.’
This is hardly the first time Da Coach has spoken out against Da President.
In 2013 Ditka called not running against Obama in the Illinois 2004 Senate race the ‘biggest mistake’ he had ever made.
