The look on the face of Trish Regan of Fox Business really says it all.
Former Red Sox/Diamondbacks pitcher Curt Schilling was interviewed by Fox Business on Thursday, and the talk was going to be about Republican candidate Donald Trump’s “locker room talk” defense after a damning video from 2005 came to light.
But first, Regan asked Schilling about a 1992 video in which Trump can be heard talking about a pre-teen girl and saying, “I’m gonna be dating her in 10 years. Can you believe it?”
Schilling tried to make it sound like everyone does this sort of thing, noting that people will comment on how handsome or beautiful a friend’s child looks.

To which Regan replied: “It’s fine to say she’s a beautiful young lady or a cute little girl, but do you need to follow it up with I’m going to date her in 10 years?”
You may recall that Schilling got into hot water for a interview in March with 610 Sports Radio in which Schilling talked about Hillary Clinton, now the Democratic presidential candidate. Schilling said Clinton “should be buried under a jail somewhere.”
Schilling was working for ESPN at the time. He was let go from the network in April for comments about transgender people.
