Former baseball star pitcher Curt Schilling said President Barack Obama showed no respect for veterans and their families by hosting a football team at the White House on the anniversary of World War II's D-Day.

Schilling made the criticism when he called in to The Blaze radio show.

Schilling, former Boston Red Sox pitcher, said that he believed it was "disrespectful" to host the Denver Broncos at the White House on the same day as the 72nd anniversary of the allied invasion of Normandy in World War II, commonly referred to as D-Day.

The Broncos were invited to celebrate the team's win at Super Bowl 50. Schilling took no issue with the invitation, as it's a White House tradition. His critique is apparently based on the timing of the visit.

He issued a harsh rebuke of the visit's timing with a Facebook post, which contains strong language.

Schilling in his post said, "I'm now 100% convinced the President has absolutely zero concern with public opinion OR he's subliminally telling us all to [expletive] off."

In his Blaze appearance, Schilling told host Mike Opelka that he believed Obama would have time for the veterans that day. "I know the Denver Broncos aren't going to be in the White House for 24 hours. I know they're not going to take every minute of his time that day."

He said he doesn't dislike Obama, but he does find him disrespectful. "I do believe the amount of disrespect that he repeatedly shows for veterans and their families, it sickens me."

"What on Earth would lead you to think that publicizing the Broncos on the anniversary of D-Day is a good thing? You're either stupid, or you're just not watching," Schilling said.

Schilling has slammed the president before, including when the president visited Hiroshima, Japan, and critics said he was "apologizing" for the Hiroshima attacks in World War II. The Boston Herald reported that Schilling said the idea of Obama apologizing "makes me sick."
