Well, here is the latest case of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Former San Francisco Giants first baseman and member of the World Series Champion 2010 San Francisco Giants, Aubrey Huff, has been banned from the team’s upcoming reunion.
Why, you ask? Well, he has some views that make him a deplorable. He’s a Trump supporter! And, some of his tweets hurt their feelings. Larry Baer, CEO of the Giants, told Huff the vote against him being invited was unanimous.
Huff announced in a tweet,

Aubrey has made multiple comments on social media that are unacceptable and run counter to the values of our organization,” the team said. “While we appreciate the many contributions that Aubrey made to the 2010 championship season, we stand by our decision.”

News that Huff wouldn’t be invited was first reported by The Athletic.
“If it wasn’t for me, they wouldn’t be having a reunion,” he told The Athletic. “But if they want to stick with their politically correct, progressive b——t, that’s fine.”
What were the controversial tweets you ask? One was regarding training his boys how to use a gun. Another was when, “Huff tweeted about taking a flight to Iran to ‘kidnap about 10; women to ‘bring them back here as they fan us and feed us grapes, amongst other things’.”
Getting my boys trained up on how to use a gun in the unlikely event @BernieSanders beats @realDonaldTrump in 2020. In which case knowing how to effectively use a gun under socialism will be a must. By the way most the head shots were theirs. @NRA @WatchChad #2ndAmendment pic.twitter.com/6xUsS7ciX3

Does nobody have a sense of humor anymore!? 🤦🏻♂️ The way Iranian women are treated over there I simply wanted 2 say I’d go there 2 rescue them & bring them back 2 the states. And they would be so thankful 2 escape that hell that they’d fan me & feed me grapes. Never said rape! 🙄 https://t.co/F3IpCcivkN pic.twitter.com/WbGpgnAEmL

So, this is the thanks Huff gets for putting up stellar numbers for the Giants in 2010. He had a .290 batting average and hit 26 home runs while knocking in 86 RBIs. Perhaps the San Francisco Giants need to screen the political views of all their players before signing them. Maybe MLB should remove all the RBIs Huff contributed and the Giants should be stripped of their championship. They wouldn’t want a trophy won, in part, due to the contributions of a Trump supporter, would they?
I perused Huff’s Twitter. He says what he thinks and pushes the limits. However, the bottom line on this seems to be they don’t like his politics. Somehow, I think if a player was tweeting left-wing views, they would not have been “cancelled” from the reunion party.
Tolerance is a one-way street with liberals. Comply with their views, or risk being cancelled. Like Huff said, everyone in America should be free to express their political views (even when stupid) without fear of repercussions.
