Washington Nationals fans who gathered at Nationals Park Wednesday to watch a scoreboard TV broadcast of Game 7 had plenty to cheer about.
But it wasn’t Donald Trump. The president once again attracted boos, just as he had in a live appearance at Game 5 of the World Series in which the crowd booed him and chanted “Lock him up!”
This time, of course, the president wasn’t there, the game wasn’t even there, and Trump still was met with derision when a 2020 campaign ad appeared during the Fox broadcast on the scoreboard TV, viewers noted.
Former NBA player Etan Thomas posted one of the longer snippets.
Kelyn Soong of Washington City Paper was among those who shared news of the negative response.
John Henry of WUSA 9 also posted video.
It sounds like at least one fan resurrected the “Lock him up!” cheer, as evidenced in this vignette.
Alex Sopko, a former White House staffer under President Barack Obama, kept score of the boos.
But the most important score of all was the Nationals’ 6-2 victory over the Houston Astros for the team’s first World Series championship.
