David Wells is once again letting the world know how he feels about woke ideologies.

The former MLB pitcher went on Fox Business with Maria Bartiromo and threw flame-throwers at progressives and many of their agendas - including explaining why he put tape on the Nike logo of his jersey at the New York Yankees “Old Timers Day.” Like most Americans, Wells said he'd lost a lot of respect for Nike due to its partnership with Colin Kaepernick.

"When Kaepernick took the knee against our national anthem, and I'm a huge, huge military supporter, that's what my foundation is all about, and for Nike to jump on board and reward this guy for that and the things that are going on, I told myself if I was playing in today's game," the former Yankees pitcher said, "and we had Nike jersey, I'd tape it up. I'd cut a hole in it."

He also saluted Riley Gaines for speaking out in the fight to prevent men from competing in women’s sports. Wells also said that if he were still in his athletic prime, he would likely injure females with how fast he can pitch and his inherent physical advantages as a man.

"She is so spot on when it comes to transgender in sport, men playing women's sports. You just you can't do that. It's not right, and it's dangerous," Wells said. "If I was to say: I'm going to switch over and I'm going to go play women's sports, I'm going to hurt somebody, especially if I'm throwing 95… they need to start their own leagues, if that's the case, if that's what they want to do, and make it fair."

Except of course in women's sports where you want "transgender" men to crush them.
