Some loon thought it might be a great idea to promote socialized medicine on ESPN. That didn’t work out so well.
Then again, everybody’s talking about it this morning (including me), so maybe it did.
Win Butler is the frontman for Arcade Fire, a Canadian band that’s not as good as Rush. He won the Celebrity Game MVP award at a basketball game in Toronto last night.
ESPN’s Safe Steele attempted to interview Butler afterwards. It was a very brief interview.
Butler said: “I just wanted to say, it’s an election year in the U.S., the U.S. has a lot it can learn from Canada, health care, taking caring of people—”.
“We’re talking about celebrity stuff, not politics,” interjected Steele. “Congratulations on your MVP.”
Oh, by the way: socialized medicine sucks.
Check out the video below.
Bad look for ESPN/Sage Steele to short-circuit Win Butler and draw a bright line between "celebrity stuff"/politics. pic.twitter.com/e5TLIzZV4u
