Sportscaster Brent Musburger has put in his mouth with a controversial comment once again.
Musburger, who came under fire in 2013 for commenting on Katherine Webb’s looks as she watched her then-boyfriend A.J. McCarron play quarterback for Alabama during the 2013 BCS championship game, no longer calls NCAA games and is now an Oakland Raiders broadcaster.
For some reason, the 79-year-old sports thought it would be smart to use a photo from President Trump’s rally on Saturday in Montana as a way to take a shot at Senator Elizabeth Warren.
Similar to the way Trump often mocks the Massachusetts Democrat as “Pocahontas” for claiming Native American heritage, Musburger also took a shot at Warren’s family tree:

Following Musberger’s remarks about Webb in ’13, ESPN apologized for the comments.
As of now, neither the Raiders nor the NFL have commented about Musburger’s racial commentary.
It’s just another pitiful piece of what has already been a sad season for the Raiders, who will be moving to Las Vegas in 2020.

Mark Davis is free to hire and fire whoever he wants, but the fact that he fired Greg Papa for Musburger will not be a proud moment for this franchise. Among many bad moments this season and beyond.
