(CNSNews.com) -- Jeff Kent, the former professional baseball player who was just voted off the "Survivor" television show, left with a parting shot at President Barack Obama -- and the amount of tax he would have to pay if he had won the $1 million prize.

“You know what pisses me off, is that I think I’ve made about $60 million dollars playing baseball and I want this frickin’ million dollars in this game. And it’s not even a million bucks, it’s $600 grand by the time Obama takes it,” said Kent, during the show’s ending credits on Wednesday.

“I’m a game 7 World Series loser. You know, I’ve played in the biggest games in the world and the worst games in the world, but this just sucks,” he said.
