Pundits ‘Sickened’ by Sight of Fans Booing Trump During World Series

Pundits, even those vehemently opposed to President Donald Trump, said they were “sickened” by the sight of baseball fans booing the president during Sunday night’s World Series match between the Washington Nationals and Houston Astros.

On their Monday morning show, MSNBC Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinksi decried the boos and chants of “Lock him up” that erupted among fans when Trump’s name was announced on the stadium public address system and his image popped up on the giant television screen.

“We are Americans,” Scarborough said. “And we do not do that. We do not want the world hearing us chant, lock him up, to this president, or to any president.”

Even though the phrase, directed at Hillary Clinton, was a fixture at Trump’s own rallies during the 2016 campaign, the hosts said such language was uncalled for at a sporting event. Trump left the game about an hour after being booed, well before it was finished.

Politically, Washington is a heavily Democratic-leaning city. More than 90 percent of its residents voted for Clinton in the 2016 match-up.

Trump attended Sunday night’s game with First Lady Melania Trump and a handful of diehard Republican supporters from Congress.

He declined to throw out the first pitch of the series, as is customary for presidents, so as not to detract from the fan’s experience, according to Major League Baseball Rob Manfred. The privilege went instead to celebrity chef Jose Andres.

The Nationals lost Game 5 of the series 7-1.

What do you think?

Saw another post saying what I claimed, the media had to set up microphones to get this specifically, lol! Nowhere NEAR a majority was participating in this crap. And one report said the booing was for the banner they unfurled saying ‘Impeach!’

the media is ridiculous…they tore this man apart 19 minutes after he was elected president and talked of impeachment (Washington Post)….I am hoping this coming Tuesday, state elections, and next year’s presidential election shuts them up once and for all….they are corrupt…they lost power and will do anything to get it back….keep an eye on the House judiciary committee and Schiff there is a coup d’état going on

Like he should be surprised they have no respect so why expect something from them they aren’t capable of? I love how Mika and Joe were all like this isn’t ok, but they’ll disrespect the president on their show constantly. Freaking hypocrisy man they say one thing and pretend to do another. Why is it so hard for these people to just admit they have personal reasons for hating Trump it’s not his leadership they dislike.

Just shows how these liberals have no class. Liberals will never give credit to what Trump does. Just think how they can afford to buy tickets for that game. Because Trump has made economy so strong

What is sickening is hearing our Dear Leader and members of his administration LEADING chants of “Locker her up!”.

What is heartening is seeing a grassroots rebellion paying him back for doing so. Democracy at work.

The loser king and queen were laughing about it, so they were OK with it all.
