Tell us how you REALLY feel, Tommy!
In an interview with WPBF-TV in Florida, 86-year-old Tommy Lasorda, the former manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers, has become one of a very small pool of people coming out in support of L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling, despite his racist rant.
“I’ve been a friend of that guy for 30 years,” said Lasorda. “It doesn’t surprise me, and he shouldn’t have said it. He just hurt himself by talking too much and doing things that he shouldn’t be doing.”
Lasorda saved his most vicious remarks for V. Stiviano, the girlfriend of Sterling who leaked the now-infamous recording: “I don’t wish that girl any bad luck, but I hope she gets hit by a car.” Someone should probably teach Tommy what wishing someone bad luck is all about, since he appears to be having a bit of trouble with the concept.
Donald Trump similarly made derogatory comments about Stiviano last week, but only after eviscerating Sterling:
