They Were Not, In Fact, Saying 'Boo-urns'
Last night, Donald Trump likely imagined he'd be taking a victory lap after the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. He probably imagined that even his worst detractors would be hailing him as a hero, despite the fact that he really had nothing to do with it at all. He probably thought it was safe to go to a public place that was not pre-packed with only his most devoted fans. That he could even attend the World Series, in a stadium with more seats than there are Trump voters in DC, and, at the very least, not be treated like the last living Cherry Sister.
When the announcer finally announced his presence, about an hour into the game, the entire stadium let out a loud, cathartic, sustained boo. Moments later, before the boos even had a chance to die out, the sports fans busted out with a surprise "Lock Him Up!" chant.
Nats fans boo Donald Trump after he’s shown on the big screen and then chant, “Lock him up.” https://t.co/WJvgbyDb4e— Shannon Watts (@Shannon Watts)1572226674.0
He did not seem to enjoy the experience.
Look how Trump’s face changes when he realizes an entire stadium is booing him https://t.co/E46rzbzmbl— Arlen Parsa (@Arlen Parsa)1572225748.0
The poor dear.
If you look closely (or not) at the video above, you can clearly see Matt Gaetz, who is likely being rewarded for being a good boy and leading a group of dumpy Freedom Caucus bros into a SCIF hearing that, legally, he was not allowed to be in last week.
Naturally, right-wing Twitter went to an extremely normal well on this, claiming that Trump was booed because the stadium full of Nationals fans just really loves ISIS.
And they wept, for how could anyone be so cruel and petty THE DAY AFTER HE PERSONALLY MURDERED ISIS!?!?
Donald Trump tried to go to a baseball game.
It didn't work out for him.
