In an interview on Fox Business Channel, former major league pitcher Curt Schilling shocked anchor Trish Regan by refusing to condemn Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s sleazy comments about a 10-year-old girl that he made in 1992.
Mediaite reported that the former video game entrepreneur asked Regan, “How many times have you looked at a young man and said ‘Wow, he’s a beautiful young man’ or ‘Wow he’s a gorgeous young man?’ and that man was 12, 13, 14, 15?”
“I’ll be honest,” Regan said. “Zero.”
“See, now, that’s a lie,” Schilling said. “There’s no way you haven’t seen a young man, somebody else’s son and said, ‘Wow, he’s beautiful.'”
“Nope, sorry,” Regan said. “You’re on your own on this one.”
Schilling said that women tell him all the time that his youngest son is going to be a beautiful man.
“To jump to the point where you’re assuming, like, pedophilia or molestation is where you’re going with this,” Schilling said. “He’s just joking about ‘When she gets older, I’m gonna date her.’ I mean, how do you get from there to being revolted and disgusted?”
On Wednesday, CBS news released footage of Trump ogling a pre-teen as she rode up the escalator at Trump Tower.
“I am going to be dating her in 10 years. Can you believe it?” Trump said.
