President Donald Trump recently endorsed a possible congressional run from former MLB pitcher and Breitbart podcast host Curt Schilling. Schilling has a long history of spewing anti-Muslim, racist, sexist, and anti-Semitic commentary, and he was fired by ESPN for posting anti-trans bigotry on Facebook. He has also promoted multiple conspiracy theories, including QAnon and claims that the Sandy Hook mass shooting was a hoax, and once praised a shirt endorsing violence against journalists.
