The badass governor of Texas just stood up to the MLB over their ridiculous decision to pull the All Star Game out of Georgia over their new election law, by refusing to throw the first pitch at the Texas Rangers game:
I was looking forward to throwing out the first pitch at the Texas Rangers' home opening game until @MLB adopted what has turned out to be a false narrative about Georgia's election law reforms.
It is shameful that America's pastime is being influenced by partisan politics. pic.twitter.com/pNJApYBHpw

I love it! Kudos to the governor for boycotting the pitch and standing up to the MLB. They deserve all the bad publicity they get for buying the liberal hype and trying to punish a state for actually trying to protect the integrity of the voting process with a great new law.
I also love how he distinguished between the Texas Rangers organization and the MLB.
