Washington Nationals Catcher and recent World Series champion Kurt Suzuki donned a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat during his team’s celebratory visit to the White House on Monday, sending leftist observers into an outrage and making it clear his team wasn’t entirely partial to the views of a pitcher who declined to participate on political grounds.
It’s a longstanding tradition for champions of baseball’s World Series to visit the White House and receive congratulations from the President. Nationals Closer Sean Doolittle chose to politicize the longstanding neutral tradition by declining to attend, akin to anti-Trump athletes such as the Golden State Warriors who had turned down a visit.
President Trump, a longtime baseball fan who was once scouted by the Philadelphia Phillies as a potential player in high school, appeared genuinely surprised and flattered by the sudden appearance of a ‘MAGA’ hat on Suzuki’s head.

Leftists on Twitter reacted with their usual outrage, taking great offense at the audacity of a World Series champion who chose to wear a pro-American hat at a White House event with the President.
imagine how tone deaf Kurt Suzuki is.
1. Ancestors, put in internment camps in his own country.
2. Happy to be supporting a president whose many followers hate him and his teammates.
Congratulations Kurt, you just gave the middle finger to yourself.

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.

Suzuki rejected attempts from liberal mainstream media operatives to browbeat him after his celebratory audience with the President. The veteran MLB catcher explained that was simply “having some fun,” brushing off the media’s desire to create a political stink over the display.
The Nationals defeated the American League’s Houston Astros in seven games.
Most Nationals players appeared at the White House event, despite the hostility among some of the Nationals fanbase for President Trump. The President was booed by Nationals fans present for Game 6 of the series, most of whom were likely wealthy upper-class people with the ability to afford a ticket to a dramatic World Series game.
“That Stuff Ain’t Happenin’ with [a] Kamala-Biden Ticket”: Fox Sports Broadcasters Joe Buck and Troy Aikman Mock Military Jet Flyovers on Hot Mic
The top NFL broadcast duo at Fox Sports, Joe Buck and former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman, mocked military jet flyovers on a hot mic during Sunday’s game between the Green Bay Packers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Aikman started it all by saying, “That’s a lot of jet fuel just to do a little flyover.”
“That’s your hard-earned money and your tax dollars at work!” Buck responded sarcastically.
The most notable and outrageous moment came when Aikman then quipped, “That stuff ain’t happenin’ with [a] Kamala-Biden ticket. I’ll tell you that right now, partner.”
Aikman GLEEFULLY talked about how Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will end them. This is disgusting. pic.twitter.com/sCChJAm1TN

How embarrassing and disgraceful. The NFL has already lost many conservative fans over its aggressively pro-social justice, pro-Black Lives Matter stance, so I guess it’s no surprise that its commentators and broadcasters would be liberal as well.
Many on social media are reacting to the Buck/Aikman hot mic by saying that the flyovers are a waste of money and that there’s nothing wrong with what they said. Aside from the fact that these flyovers are legitimate training exercises, none of them are focusing on Aikman’s last comment about the “Kamala-Biden ticket” (which is in the wrong order, if you didn’t already notice). He’s implying that flyovers honoring the military are nothing more than a partisan display that Democrats would prefer not to see. That’s shameful.
