March 30 (UPI) -- Since saying goodbye to his $2.5 million ESPN salary, Curt Schilling has been less than quiet.

The three-time World Series champ and six-time All-Star was fired in April by the sports network for repeatedly breaking its 2016 Presidential Election Policy. Some of the comments he said at the time regarded Muslims and Nazis. He also said he thought Hillary Clinton should be "buried under a jail."

But the Ben Carson contributor isn't letting up on Clinton, even after she fell in the November election to President Donald Trump.

On Thursday, he posted a video calling the former First Lady and New York Senator "a skank." The video appeared to be filmed from inside of his house and was posted on Periscope.

"We're not [expletive]," Schilling said. "Thank God we got Trump in office. If we would have had that skank, [expletive] we'd already be in World War III."

Schilling said last year that he was eyeing a run for president in 2020 or 2024.

The former star pitcher has maintained that ESPN is "outwardly bigoted and intolerant." His firing came immediately after he made a post on Facebook showing a man wearing women's clothes with the caption: "Let him in to the restroom with your daughter or else you're a narrow-minded, judgmental, unloving racist bigot who needs to die."
