Booing Boston Red Sox Fans Tear Down ‘Trump 2020’ Banner At Fenway Park

Mod: Apparently followers of America's pastime in Boston have little regard for America's waste of a President, and said so.

Boston Red Sox Fans Tear Down ‘Trump 2020’ Banner At Fenway Park (Inquisitr.com link): Boston Red Sox fans tore down a “Trump 2020” banner that other fans had brought into Fenway Park on Friday night, the day after several members of the team skipped meeting Donald Trump at the White House, Yahoo News reports.

Just before the sixth inning began, fans in the uppermost deck unfurled a red, white and blue banner that read, in part, “Trump 2020” and “Make America Great Again.” Within moments, fans from the deck immediately below had grabbed it and pulled it down, getting a standing ovation and loud cheers from the fans in surrounding sections of the park.

The incident happened a day after some members of the team skipped meeting with Donald Trump at the White House.

For the past few decades, it’s been tradition for members of a championship-winning team to visit with the president at the White House following their victory. While it’s nothing new for some members of some of the winning teams to skip the meeting for whatever reason, the Trump administration has seen more members of more teams skip the meeting. In fact, whole teams have been dis-invited because some members have publicly stated they won’t go to the traditional meeting.
         
The Boston Red Sox, who won the World Series in 2018, don’t appear to have been exceptions to that recent trend of some members of the team skipping out.

As CNN reported on Friday, on Thursday Trump hosted some of the World Series-winning players at the White House, but a sizable number of them skipped the meeting. In fact, the division between those who attended the meeting and those who skipped was largely along racial and ethnic lines; most of those who skipped were people of color, including several Puerto Rican players.

The team’s manager, Alex Cora, who is Puerto Rican, said in advance that he wouldn’t be going, and neither would most of his teammates who aren’t white. Boston sports columnist Steve Buckley, in response to Cora’s decision to skip the meeting, tweeted that it would be “mostly the White Sox” who would be going.

  4. Being a Red Sox fan i understand that the younger generations do not have the maturity level of players of the past.
    Baseball was the last hold out in sports to remain out of politics, being a Bostonian has nothing to do with taking down the banner.
    If the Puerto Rican players disagree with the amount of money sent for recovery, which was more money than any of the other hurricane effected states received, than they should get out their checkbooks and send more money home.
    Bean Town is proudand not all residents are Progressives.
    Play Ball.

  6. More than half of the Red Sox players did attend the White House reception given in their honor.
    Good thing the athlete Jackie Robinson came along in baseball when he did because if he had played today people might notice the color of his skin.

  10. Images of GOP lawmakers were featured during a Channel 1 Russia broadcast on recently lifted sanctions.

    An image purportedly showing a screenshot from a Russian state TV news program featuring eight Republican U.S. senators — Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Mitt Romney (R-Utah), John Cornyn (R-TX), Richard Burr (R-NC), Ted Cruz (R-TX), Ron Johnson (R-WI), and John Thune (R-SD) — made its way online in January 2019, along with the claim that the pictured American lawmakers were being “honored” or “thanked” for lifting sanctions against three companies controlled by Russian oligarch Oleg V. Deripaska.

  14. Report Shows Fox News Lies Daily In Newscasts To Viewers

    https://www.politicususa.com/2019/05/13/report-shows-fox-news-lies-daily-in-newscasts-to-viewers.html

    The myth that Fox has a news side and an opinion side was shattered a by a new report documenting the lies that Fox told to their viewers during their “news” segments of their programming.

    Here is a smattering of some of the lies pushed as news by Fox anchors:

    – Anchor Harris Faulkner claimed Democrats “have gotten” Mueller’s findings “through that four-page report from the AG.”

    – Anchor Maria Bartiromo suggested that Democrats don’t support border security because they didn’t vote for three specific proposals

    – Anchor Bill Hemmer said the Trump/Russia investigation began with “the original sin” of the “dirty dossier.”

    – Chief national correspondent Ed Henry said, “House Democrats already seem to be, at least, encouraging illegal immigrants to vote” through voting and campaign finance reform bill HR 1.”

    – Anchor Sandra Smith parroted a highly misleading claim that “Medicare for All” would cost $33 trillion in its first 10 years.

  16. Trump Is Angry That the FBI Won't Endorse His Theory of Victimhood

    https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2019/05/trump-wants-chris-wray-buy-his-theory-victimhood/589333/

    The president has already fired an FBI director and an acting director. Now he’s gunning for the present director, Chris Wray.

    Trump wants the FBI to endorse his own theory of victimhood—and it won’t. Worse, the FBI was embedded in the Mueller investigation. The FBI received, and still holds, whatever information the investigation gathered about Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, including potential answers to the all-important question: Why? Why was Vladimir Putin so eager to help Trump into the presidency? Why did Russia care so much, and run such risks for him?

    The answer may be indicated in an underappreciated pair of sentences on page 76 of Volume II of the Mueller report: “As described in Volume I, the evidence uncovered in the investigation did not establish that the President or those close to him were involved in the charged Russian computer-hacking or active-measure conspiracies, or that the President otherwise had any unlawful relationship with any Russian official. But the evidence does indicate that a thorough FBI investigation would uncover facts about the campaign and the President personally that the President could have understood to be crimes or that would give rise to personal or political concerns.”

  17. Long ago before the Republicans, GOP and RNC said trade wars are bad and tariffs are bad for the USA economy and now they have gone over to the RED SIDE. Let the fun begin, who can hold their breath longer? Either way these darn fools gave us the longest Govt shut down and now they are setting themselves up for a complete 2020 sweep taking them out of power and making them a illegal political party right along with the American Communist Party. https://www.sgvtribune.com/2019/05/13/trade-war-rattles-southern-california-industry-leaders/

  20. I am sure this post has touched all the internet people, its really really nice paragraph on building up new website.
    There is definately a lot to learn about this subject.

    I love all the points you have made. I've been browsing on-line greater than 3 hours
    these days, yet I by no means found any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It's beautiful value enough for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you did, the web might be
    much more helpful than ever before. http://pepsi.net
