Melania looks visibly uncomfortable as crowd boos Donald Trump and chants 'lock him up' at World Series
The first lady's facial expressions oscillated between looking very awkward at the reaction her husband was receiving from the audience and forcefully smiling
First lady Melania Trump looked visibly uncomfortable as POTUS Donald Trump was booed by crowds that chanted "lock him up" at the World Series in Washington DC on Sunday, October 27.
Melania could be seen sitting in a suite behind home plate at Nationals Park when they were shown on the video board during a salute to veterans.
The first lady's facial expressions oscillated between looking very awkward at the reaction her husband was receiving from the audience and forcefully smiling.
The Trumps were joined by a few Republican members of Congress such as Rep. Steve Scalise, Sen. Lindsay Graham, and Rep. Matt Gaetz.
A picture of US troops came on the screen during the Nationals "wave your caps" mid-inning and the stadium exploded into cheers and applause.
However, the cheers quickly turned to "boos" when Trump was shown on the video board.
Unlike his wife, Trump seemed unfazed by the audience's disapproval and continued to smile and wave. The screen then shifted back to the troops along with a message which read, "thank you for your service."
Some people could even be heard chanting "lock him up" as they pointed at the suite that Trump was sitting in.
According to MLB commissioner, Rob Manfred, Trump had decided not to throw the ceremonial first pitch "in order to make the fan experience as positive as possible".
Trump was taunted throughout the game with two fans behind the home plate unveiling signs which read "VETERANS FOR IMPEACHMENT" at one point. It is not clear whether Trump saw the banner before he left at around 10 pm.
Just hours before he was seen at the game, he had announced that US forces had captured and killed Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. The mission was a success and resulted in the death of one of the most-wanted enemies of the United States.
