The longest-serving justice on the Court is no stranger to controversy, and he may have stirred some up while giving a speech in Houston on Friday. According to the Houston Chronicle, Scalia was taking questions from the audience when one attendee asked him if he was a Redskins fan.
“I’m not really much of a football fan,” Scalia said. “To the extent I am, I hate the Redskins. In fact, I always root for Dallas.”
On the very next question, Scalia was asked how he would “handle Syria,” and he was able to answer without offending his hometown’s football team.
“Naw, I shouldn’t talk about that. I have strong views on it, though.”
