Foley: “I think that democracy’s at stake”

Sep 13, 2020 - by Steve Gerweck

WWE hall of famer Mick Foley talks about why he’s criticized Donald Trump:

“I do think this is a matter between right and wrong. I think that democracy’s at stake. I really do feel like future generations are going to study this period of time and wonder how we stood by and let so much go wrong. I want to be on the right side of history. I don’t know, we’ve lost something along the way. And it’s been aided and abetted by the President, who seems way more concerned with being re-elected than he does with keeping us safe. Deep down, I need to feel like I’m doing what I can. I know the country’s very divided and I have a pretty diverse following. But as things progressed in this administration, I just felt like we were going down a really bad and dangerous path. I just wanted to have some public record for my own children and grandchildren to point to decades down the road to show that their father, or their grandfather, at least tried to do something.”
