Ballpark boos a rarity for shielded president

Trump's decision to attend a Nationals game for the first time came as a complete surprise, and Nationals owner Ted Lerner told The Washington Post that it was already too late to switch things up when it came to who was throwing out the first pitch.

In fact, it's a bit more of the opposite, as DC may be filled with politicians and those that have served in the military, but it's also a very liberal city, similar to NY.

President Donald Trump was greeted with a thunderous chorus of boos from the sold-out crowd attendance at Game 5 of the World Series between the Nationals and Astros. Here's how he reacted to the chants.

US President Donald Trump has used a conference of police chiefs to describe host city Chicago as "embarrassing" under the leadership of its top officer. Clinton would nearly certainly be impacted by President Trump's successes against the Islamic State, as she was the U.S. Secretary of State during their rise in Northern Syria and Iraq. Another banner appeared during the game: "IMPEACH TRUMP!"

Chicago's mayor tore into President Trump Monday for ripping the city as more risky than Afghanistan while he addressed a gathering of law enforcement officials at a conference there.

In September, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, a Barack Obama appointee, threw out the ceremonial first pitch as part of the team's recognition of Hispanic Heritage Day.

"Afghanistan is a safe place in comparison", he said, to laughter from the police chiefs at the International Association of Chiefs of Police Annual Conference and Exposition.

When the boos began as Trump's image flashed on the ballpark's giant video screen, the president seemed momentarily taken aback.

"You know what, he's coming to the game", Martinez said.

He touted the death of former Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who was killed during a USA military raid in Syria on Saturday night, as a major accomplishment, which was received positively by the crowd.

Throwing the first pitch on Sunday should a Game 5 be required will be celebrity chef José Andrés, who runs a number of restaurants across the D.C. area.

He didn't toss the ceremonial first pitch, a century-old baseball tradition.

Then, as Nationals starter Joe Ross took the mound to warm up for the fourth inning, fans started chanting, "Lock him up!" in an apparent reference to ongoing impeachment proceedings against the president.

While in Chicago, Trump is scheduled to headline a campaign luncheon that's set to raise approximately $4 million for a joint fundraising committee benefiting Trump's reelection effort and the Republican National Committee, according to the GOP.
