I’m not sure ESPN expected two of their most opinionated analyst to jump into the political realm this hard, but things are really heating up after Mike Ditka weighed in on the White House.
During an appearance on the Bernie and Sid morning radio show on WABC-AM in New York, the ESPN “Sunday NFL Countdown” analyst and Hall of Famer was asked about President Barack Obama by the hosts, when Ditka unloaded the POTUS.
“Obama is the worst president we’ve ever had,” said the Pro Football Hall of Famer, who coached the 1985 Bears to a victory in Super Bowl XX.
“His leadership skills are disgusting.
“Barack Obama’s a fine man. I mean, he’s pleasant. He would be great to play golf with. 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.
“Every once in a while you’re going to get punched in the chops. But you keep going forward. That’s all there is to it. You know it’s not always going to be a perfect situation, but to do what he does, there’s no leadership there. I think that becomes very disgusting to me.”
Ditka went on to say that if the election were held tomorrow, he’d vote for Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton or Republicans Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and John Kasich.
