The Washington Nationals brought the world series back to DC, but Trump refuses to throw out the first pitch because the kevlar vest will make him look “too heavy.”
John Leguizamo makes a pretty great point:
World Series coming to DC for first time since 1933, but Trump won’t throw out first pitch because Kevlar vest would make him look “too heavy.” If you can’t go outside without getting shot at, think less about your weight and more about whether you’re a colossal piece of shit.

So we didn’t get to see him make a complete ass of himself trying to throw a ball, but we did get SOME satisfaction out of his appearance there tonight – the entire stadium greeted him with raucous “BOOS” when he entered his presidential suite and we’re sure he won’t soon forget how that felt. Especially when about an hour into the game, the crowd started chanting, “LOCK HIM UP!!” as he was introduced.
Full on “LOCK HIM UP! LOCK HIM UP!” chants heard throughout the crowd at Nats Park after President Trump was announced and shown on screen here #WorldSeries pic.twitter.com/1ktVXkHYFy

Incidentally, as one adept Twitter user points out, the Nat’s haven’t won a game since Trump said he was coming to game 5.

Check out what other Twitter users had to say. These are hilarious!
Trump must be a hard core Nats fan to paint his face orange like that for the game. https://t.co/ew0c6mv2dA

Trump isn’t throwing out the first pitch because he doesn’t want to get booed off the field at the World Series. It’s unlike him to appear in such an uncontrolled environment, where red MAGA hats and overalls aren’t recommended attire.

Wait … Trump is going to the World Series? He’s going to get booed.
I am going to record this and save it for when I’m having a bad day.

The only thing Trump knows about baseball is “stealing third base” without consent. ⚾️ #WorldSeries

If the Nationals manage to pull off this win tonight, you just know Trump will take credit for it. Right now Houston is leading by 4, so it’s not looking good for them. I wonder if they are blowing it on purpose? Can’t say I blame them.
