As soon as it was announced that Mr. Trump was going to attend the LSU/Alabama football game, the SGA from the University of Alabama issued a statement threatening students that they would lose their reserved seating if any protests happened during the president’s attendance. After it was met with resistance due to its unconstitutional nature, the SGA retracted their statement.

Trump’s reception at the game on Saturday was a mixed one. He definitely received some boos as well as some enthusiastic support which wasn’t a surprise coming from the south.

According to NJ.com:

‘The inflatable figure depicting a baby Donald Trump wearing a diaper, which has been seen at protests around the world, made an appearance in Tuscaloosa. A protester carried a sign that said “Roll Tide Impeach 45” and a woman held a signing saying she had sold her ticket and donated the money to the Alabama Democratic Party.’

Even in the south, people have grown tired of the corrupt narcissist who inhabits the White House. Sporting events have often provided an environment for presidents to woo support as well as for fan to express their political leanings.

NJ.com reported:

‘Both loud boos and cheers could be heard as Trump took his seat before the recent pay-per-view UFC title match. The greeting was warmer than the reception Trump received at the World Series at Nationals Park, when he was roundly booed and became the target of a “Lock him up!” chant.’

In 2016, Trump received 63 percent of the vote in Alabama. LSU quarterback Joe Burrow said:

‘Regardless of your political views, that’s pretty cool, having the president at the game.’
