BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- Quite a tweet to the President from former baseball slugger Jose Canseco last night:
"Hey little buddy Donald Trump: You need a bash brother for Chief if Staff. Got a secret reorg plan already. Also worried about you looking more like a Twinkie everyday. I will buff you up, daily workouts. D-M me. hashtag Yes we Canseco"
Hashtag's the best part--it's catchy.
But, unfortunately--at least for the sake of the story--Canseco says he didn't send the tweet.
Mark McGwire's old Bash Brother from Oakland told C-B-S Radio he doesn't even have access to his Twitter account!
"Actually, I lost control of my account, really didn't even realize it til someone had mentioned to me, 'Jose, did you say these tweets?' I go, I haven't tweeted on my account--been locked out for months," he said.
Too bad. With the Red Sox planning to visit the White House in the coming months to celebrate their World Series championship, it'd be great if a former Boston player were there as "Chief If Staff."
