Former MLB player and ‘Survivor’ contestant jabs Obama

*Spoiler alert:* – The following article contains a spoiler from last night’s episode of “Survivor.”

Jeff Kent, former San Francisco Giants second baseman, was one of the celebrity contestants on the latest season of CBS’s “Survivor” but as of last night, his run on the island came to an abrupt end. After a crushing blindside that sent him packing, Kent took a big swing – not at his tribe, but at President Obama when he conducted his exit interview following tribal council.

“You know what pisses me off is I think I’ve made about $60 million playing baseball – and I want this fricken million dollars in this game and it’s not even a million bucks – its 600 grand by the time Obama takes it!” a disappointed Kent ranted to the camera in the final seconds of last night’s episode. “I’m a game seven world series loser.”

Kent would be what the Left would call a “one percenter” having made several million dollars in his lifetime playing 16 years of Major League Baseball. And Kent’s frustration with President Obama and his penchant to make the rich “pay their fair share” simply stems from Kent’s “evil” idea that he should be able to keep as much as possible of what he has rightfully earned.

Though his anti-Obama, anti-high tax comment seemed a little misplaced during the tail end of a reality show, his anger at the president’s affinity for raising taxes on the rich still holds some value.

Fittingly, “Survivor” host Jeff Probst had some chilling words for the tribe in the wake of Kent’s eviction, stating, “That vote may go down as one of the biggest blown opportunities in this game.” For dejected conservatives and Romney supporters in the wake of Tuesday’s election, Probst’s words might just cut a little deeper.
