“(Obama) was not born here,” Scott asserted to Answer Man in the session’s last segment. “That’s my belief. I was born here. If someone accuses me of not being born here, I can go — within 10 minutes — to my filing cabinet and I can pick up my real birth certificate and I can go, ‘See? Look! Here it is. Here it is.’ The man has dodged everything. He dodges questions, he doesn’t answer anything.”
Scott’s controversial comments are gaining steam in the online world, his **Wikipedia page has already been updated with the comments and teammate Adam Jones(notes) has tweeted a preemptive show of support (“Luke Scott Luke Scott Luke Scott Luke Scott you still my boy”).
Scott used to come to the ballpark packing heat. Now sporting an offseason beard but no noticeable firearm, Scott came out guns blazing, figuratively, in Orlando.
