What you need to know

  • John Legere considers running for office following the riots at the U.S. Capitol.
  • He has called for Donald Trump to step down as president prior to Joe Biden's inauguration.
  • Legere was formerly CEO of T-Mobile which he transformed into a leading U.S. carrier.

T-Mobile's former CEO, John Legere, has been chillin' since he stepped down from the company last year. That doesn't mean his outspoken personality has chilled at all during his time off, as noted by his recent criticism of the U.S. Capitol riots and the handling of the recent presidential election. In fact, the events seem to not only have angered him but could possibly have inspired his next move to potentially run for office.

In the same breath, Legere joins many others in calling for Donald Trump to step down just weeks before President-elect Joe Biden is set to be inaugurated, while he also considers running for office. That's right, the guy who brought us the Un-Carrier wants to try his hand at politics, as indicated by his recent tweets:

As the former CEO of T-Mobile, which carries many of the best 5G phones, Legere does know how to turn things around for a company, transforming T-Mobile from a flailing mobile carrier to a leading 5G provider. As we've seen through his various Un-Carrier announcements over the years, when Legere is passionate about something, he goes out of his way to try and fix things for the benefit of the customers. He seems to believe that he can do the same for the country, although that's a much bigger fish to fry.

  • More political news.....
  • You know there's titles in the articles that pretty much tell you what they're about all you have to do is not click on it and then you don't have to see it. At this point you and people like you are just looking for something to complain about, no one is forcing you to click on articles that you're not interested in.
  • Agree, but I like to know what the Libs on site are spreading. But if I ran a site where I survived on ads, people clicking links and buying things, I don't think I would want to drive away 50% of my $$$. If this site post a good deal, I'll search for deal myself and would never click on a link and buy.
  • What happened to **** your feelings? You guys are all suddenly not wanting to talk politics. Why is that, I wonder. Now you lost, you want us to pretend you all didn't just try to stage a coup. No thanks, we'll never forget. If you don't like "the libs", then go to Parler. Oh wait. You can't. Because no company wants to do business with insurrectionists.
  • Yes let's just not have these posts. We are exhausted.
  • It would be hard to do worse than the last guy tbh 🤷🏻‍♂️
  • I think my poodle could do better than both of them.
  • D J S
  • Donald J Sucks? We agree!
  • Would anyone follow a tech website that talks about whatever tech it talks about and not politics? So tired of this ****.
  • Bye! No one cares :)
  • We should probably stick with professional politicians for a while. They know how to work within the system and get things done. Most of them with a minimum of embarrassment to the country. Washington outsiders really should stay outside.
  • “They know how to get things done.” That’s funny.
  • Did you really just say that?
  • Free lines for you you and you lol
  • Good luck with that, the establishment will eat you up and spit you out.
