The president received a very unwelcome greeting at game five of the World Series when he was hit by a barrage of boos and chants from the angry crowd. The president left the stadium just an hour later, before the game was even finished.
Trump has decided he wants to relive some of that embarrassment by inviting the team to the White House Monday, and of course, in true Trump fashion, the president humiliated himself by awkwardly grabbing Washington Nationals catcher Kurt Suzuki from behind for a bearhug.
Check out the moment below:
Trump then says to the crowd:
“America fell in love with the Nats baseball. That’s all they wanted to talk about – that and impeachment. I like Nats baseball much more.”
“You reminded us all why baseball is truly America’s past time.”

Social media is literally blowing up with people mocking the president at every turn. Here are some of the best posts:
Not gonna lie: having spent the past decade cheering on the Nats and the last several months obsessed w/ their playoff journey, it's pretty heartbreaking to see Kurt Suzuki and company go far beyond polite reception and cozying up to a monster who hates people like me.

"President Donald Trump then reached around to feel Kurt Suzuki's nipples."
This would have seemed such an odd thing to write in 2010.

Does Kurt Suzuki really think the folks that rock this MAGA hat give a shit about people who look like him?
What an embarrassment to his family.

Shame on the @Nationals for appearing at the WH and normalizing this shitshow of presidency. Shame on Kurt Suzuki and Ryan Zimmerman, both of who have shown their true colors. Disgusting. Kudos to all of the Nats players who refused to attend.

Hey, Kurt Suzuki, you just won the World Series. Now what are you going to do?
I’m going to make a gesture that’ll guarantee that 63 percent of the country loathes me even before they know who the hell I am.
