Curt Schilling — outspoken former Boston Red Sox pitcher fired from his job as an ESPN analyst for a rant about transsexuals — says he's going to run for president.

Schilling took to Facebook to reveal he plans to seek the nation's highest office in eight years — or four if Hillary Clinton is elected in the general election this November.

Trashing Democrats, Schilling wrote in one post: "Can't get over just how fraudulent the entire party is. From Obama, Clinton to Pelosi and Reid to this [expletive]," referring to ex-California State Sen. Leland Yee, who is headed to prison on weapons trafficking charges.

He later added, "I am going to run, soon," first for a state office, then for the White House in eight years.

"Or 4 if by some amazing illegal event this country elects another Clinton," Schilling said.

In April, ESPN booted the former All-Star thrower after he reacted to the North Carolina law banning transgender people from bathrooms that do not correspond with their birth genders by posting a photo of an obese man wearing a wig and women's clothing.

"LET HIM IN! to the restroom with your daughter or else you're a narrow-minded, judgmental, unloving racist bigot who needs to die," wrote Schilling, The New York Times reported. "A man is a man no matter what they call themselves."

Schilling, 49, helped the Arizona Diamondbacks win the World Series in 2001 and the Red Sox in 2004 and 2007. He is a member of the 3,000-strikeout club.
