Fake Boos?

This is not fake news, nor is it fake boos. The Baseball championship game of the World Series was going well until an announcement was made over the intercom that POTUS was there, Although this is sad that Americans are reacting this way in public, it speaks volumes about the state of our political discourse.

Just before the fourth inning started, the video screens carried a salute to our military service members that drew loud cheers throughout the stadium. When the video cut and they announced the Trumps were there, a torrent of boos and heckling.

Then, President Donald Trump was shown on the widescreen for a few seconds after the third inning, watching from a lower-level suite, the fans were not amused as they let loose with very loud boos as is they were offering a preview of Halloween. Suddenly the crowd broke into a very real and audible chant of “Lock him up!”

It looked like everyone’s smiles in the stadium box with Trump were wiped off their faces once he was shown on the Jumbotron and greeted with thunderous boos and chants of locking him up. Trump then left the baseball game early after he realized the All-American crowd were loudly booing and chanting 'lock him up'
