Vin Scully gets political, not a fan of socialism

Vin Scully rarely gets political when broadcasting a baseball game. The legendary voice of the Dodgers decided to talk briefly about socialism Friday night and he doesn't care for it in the least.

"Socialism failing to work as it always does," Scully said. "This time in Venezuela. "You talk about giving everybody something free and all of the sudden there's no food to eat."

Scully continued.

"And who do you think is the richest person in Venezuela? The daughter of Hugo Chávez. Hello."
