( -- Former Major League Baseball player Aubrey Huff triggered some liberal outrage over the Thanksgiving break when he tweeted a photo of himself with his two sons holding a gun-range target with lots of bullet holes in it.

Huff, a two-time World Series champion,  said in the tweet that he was training his sons to use guns "effectively ... under socialism" in case Bernie Sanders beats Donald Trump in the 2020 election. 

"Getting my boys trained up on how to use a gun in the unlikely event @BernieSanders beats @realDonaldTrump in 2020," tweeted Huff.  "In which case knowing how to effectively use a gun under socialism will be a must. By the way most [of] the head shots were theirs. @NRA @WatchChad #2ndAmendment."


In addition to holding up the practice target with his sons, whose heads are cropped out of the picture, Huff is wearing a Trump 45 t-shirt and a red hat in the tweeted picture. Huff is a Trump supporter and a supporter of the Second Amendment and gender as set by nature, male and female.

As he stated in a Nov. 24, 2019 tweet, "I believe n marriage the way it was in the old days when women had pride n being a stay at home mom & making sure her man is satisfied providing for the family. Marriage has become a biz 4 women looking 2 get rich off a successful man ⁦@RationalMale."

Huff's marriage tweet linked to a CNBC article entitled, "A woman’s best route to the top 1 percent is to marry rich, research shows."

Some liberals were not pleased with Huff's tweet about teaching his sons to use firearms. 

Actress Kathy Lee Griffin tweeted, "This dumb f**k right here," and linked to Huff's tweet. 

Actor and activist Tom Arnold tweeted, "Kathy Griffin just handed Aubrey Huff his ass."


Another person criticized Huff, tweeting, "Congrats on getting away with making terroristic threats. Being white is great huh buddy?"

Also, Daniel J. Trujillo tweeted to Huff, "You are a f***ing piece of s**t. F***in racist White nationalist. Neo nazi! You are definitely not American. Everything you say and do is totally Un-American."

In another example, Kenny Mayne tweeted, "To be silent about a former MLB player posting a threat of political violence is to normalize it. It is not normal. It is unacceptable. (Politics & sports intersected here-so we are good) And now....imagine a non white player posting what he posted...& what would come. BeAlert#."

In response to the criticism, Huff tweeted on Nov. 27, "For all you that reported me to the FBI, and Twitter I’m happy to report I flew today & got to my destination with zero security problems. Also had 100’s of emails from @Twitter  that say I violated zero of twitter’s posting rules. Thanks for all your concern! Happy Thanksgiving."

Aubrey Huff, a first baseman and designated hitter, played for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, Houston Astros, Baltimore Orioles, Detroit Tigers, and the San Francisco Giants. With the Giants, he was a two-time World Series champion (2010 and 2012).
