Remember Enemy #1 in Miami, David Samson? He was the Miami Marlins president when the organization hosed Miami taxpayers with a publicly funded boondoggle that turned into a fire sale that then turned into Derek Jeter and the new owners angering Marlins Man, which turned into 98-loss season, which turned into…etc….etc…etc. And then Samson went New World Order heel at Dan Le Batard’s birthday party by middle fingering the gathered crowd and telling them, “f–k you.”

Actually, I have to respect this bit. Samson played it up perfectly here and the timing couldn’t be better since it’ll mean that Le Batard — the Howard Stern of South Beach — will now have to talk about it since this video is now out there and the nerds at Deadspin are nerding out over some guy acting like he’s sticking it to the taxpayers.

The guy’s stepfather is Jeffrey Loria. He knows he’s forever going to be hated in town. Might as well have some fun with it.

Samson was once quoted as saying about the ballpark he suckered taxpayers into paying for“We don’t care if nobody comes,” Mr. Samson recalled with a smile. “We’ll play in front of nobody, and we’ll have all the money.”

His stepfather bought the Marlins for $158 million in 2002 and sold for $1.2 billion in 2017.
