Enjoy These Deeply Satisfying Clips of Trump Getting Booed at the World Series

“Lock him up.”

On Sunday, President Donald Trump made a rare public appearance at Game 5 of the World Series to root for the home team, the Washington Nationals. Trump’s attendance, his very first Major League Baseball game since taking office, proved instantly regrettable, as a wave of sustained boos and chants of “lock him up” met his jumbotron introduction. 

To be clear, this wasn’t limited to a handful of sections; the booing was overwhelming. 

“IMPEACH TRUMP” banners were also seen.

Could Trump make out what was happening? Or had he sufficiently inoculated himself from the chorus of condemnation by seating himself with some of his most sycophantic congressional supporters? Well, here he is, making the face of a man ruminating over how to best exact his revenge on America.

Trump left the game with only one inning to go. But in all, Game 5 proved to be a deeply satisfying, unifying moment for these divisive times. Don’t let the Joe Scarborough’s of the world tell you any differently today.

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
