Mike Francesa Tried To Argue That Trump Doesn't Curse Publicly While Criticizing LeBron For Cursing Publicly
Yup, that'll do it. Let's expedite that WFAN retirement paperwork. When you reach the age where you start declaring that Donald Trump absolutely, positively has not done something when someone else tells you he has then you can no longer be a trusted public voice. I'm sure there was a time when Mike Francesa was a well respected radio personality, but he's basically spent the last decade or so legitimizing every one of his points by repeating them - ad nauseam - into a microphone and hanging up on anyone who disagrees throughout the course of a 5 hour time slot. It's no wonder he was unaware that the President-elect might have used an expletive or thirty in front of a crowd, because Donald Trump could tell him to go fuck himself from the control room and he wouldn't be able to stop talking about Joe Girardi's job security for long enough to acknowledge the presence of a cuss.
Now, I don't need Mike Francesa to be Walter Cronkite, but to think that the dude who implied that someone should assassinate his competition in the race to become POTUS has never cursed into a microphone has far too big of a disconnect with society. I'm no LeBron James fan, but crapping on him for using some PG-13 language at a championship parade while blindly protecting the reputation of Donald J. Trump like a deaf person who hasn't heard a word he's said throughout the last 6-8 months? That might signal the appropriate time for Mike Francesa to start broadcasting to an audience of one (fed up wife) from his couch, because any person allowed out of the house by themselves should never give Donald Trump's mouth the benefit of the doubt.
