Curt Schilling, former pitcher for the Boston Red Sox and current radio talk-show host, has decided he wants to run for the Senate in Massachusetts to try to unseat Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) in 2018.
‘I’ve made my decision, I’m going to run. But I haven’t talked to Shonda, my wife. And ultimately it’s going to come down to how her and I feel this would affect our marriage and our kids.’

Schilling is an ardent supporter of alleged unregistered sex offender Donald Trump, who Schilling vehemently defended on the Fox Business channel after first the leaked audio of Trump confessing to sexually assaulted women in 2005 during an Access Hollywood interview with Billy Bush surfaced, and then later, when audio in which the alleged unregistered sex offender Donald Trump made questionable comments about a 10-year-old child.
‘To jump to the point where you’re insinuating something like pedophilia or molestation is where you’re going with this because he’s joking about, “Well, when she gets older, I’m going to date her.” […] How do you get from there to being revolted and disgusted?’
The revulsion and disgust comes from hearing alleged unregistered sex offender Trump admit to sexually assaulting women before sizing up a 10-year-old for future dating plans, but Schilling didn’t seem to understand that, despite the fact that he has a daughter. Like most supporters of the GOP nominee, Schilling is content to overlook these failings and dismiss the bragging about the sexual assault of women as “locker room talk.”
Schilling is in for a tough contest against the popular, progressive Democratic candidate. The former baseball player created some controversy in September when he first began publicly announcing his thoughts about running. In a poll conducted by WBZ-TV and UMass Amherst at the time, results showed that Schilling would begin a run against Warren with a deficit of nearly 20 points, 47 percent to 28 percent.
For Schilling’s entire interview with Fox Business in which he tries to defend alleged unregistered sex offender Donald Trump and has to be told repeatedly that he is alone in his defense, see video below.
