Washington Nationals Catcher Dons ‘MAGA’ Hat at White House World Series Celebration

The left went berserk as the catcher donned a ‘MAGA’ hat.

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.

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.

President Trump kicked off the Daytona 500 NASCAR race in Florida on Sunday, serving as grand marshal of the event and taking a lap around the racetrack in a new state-of-the-art presidential limousine before the start of the race.

Drivers could be heard discussing the president’s motorcade, being a witness to an exciting spectacle in which the formation of vehicles was on display for potentially millions of Americans on a world-famous racetrack.

The limousine is the newest iteration of the official presidential vehicle. Nicknamed “the Beast,” it’s equipped with state-of-the-art security features to protect the president from any bodily harm. Certainly admirers of beautiful cars would be intrigued to get a first-hand look at the unprecedented American engineering involved in its creation.

It’s traditional for the race’s grand marshal to officially kick off the race with the command for the drivers to start their engines.

Daytona International speedway, we love our country… Gentlemen, start your engines!”

The President even expressed his wish to participate as a driver in the great American sporting tradition.

At least one liberal journo has taken to opportunity to trash the Daytona 500 on the event of the President’s participation, revealing their contempt for the blue-collar Americans who largely form the fanbase of NASCAR.

President Trump has always been a fan of sporting events that coastal elites have sneered at, appearing at WWE events years before his political career.

The event all together appears to be a great American display of patriotism and national pride.
