New York Mets pitcher and Mansfield Legacy alumnus Noah Syndergaard, who has the nickname Thor, dropped a hammer of satire on President Donald Trump early Saturday morning.

Syndergaard mocked the president with a satirical post on Twitter just after midnight early Saturday morning.

“Sports Illustrated called and said I was probably going to be Sportsman of the Year, but it was going to take a long photo shoot and interview,” Syndergaard posted. “I’m not proud of my recent perm and have a interpretive dance class at the interview time so I turned it down! No Thanks SI!!”

The tweet mocked the presidents assertion on twitter that he had turned down Time’s “Person of the Year.”

“Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named “Man (Person) of the Year,” like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!” Trump posted at 4:40 p.m. on Friday.
