Apparently Pete Rose Did Not Endorse Donald Trump

Remember that time when Pete Rose apparently endorsed Donald Trump for President?

Turns out…not true.

“Though he respects everyone who works hard for our country — any outlet that misinterpreted a signed baseball for an endorsement was wrong,” according to Rose’s attorney Ray Genco. “Pete did not personally send any candidate a baseball or a note of endorsement.”

Up is down. Left is right. I’m not even sure who I can believe anymore!

So how did Trump get the ball? Is it possible baseball’s hit king just signed whatever someone asked of him?!? Because, listen…that’s what he does.

Anyway. There’s no word yet if this changes the Trumpster’s stance as to whether or not Rose belongs in the Hall of Fame, but if it does…you’ve gotta think he’ll tweet about it at least a dozen times.
