Trump booed again at MLB World Series finale by Washington Nationals fans as re-election ad appears on jumbotron
The 30-second advert appeared at the moment the D.C. team was losing in the fifth inning as the clip proclaimed the president is "no 'Mr. Nice Guy,' but sometimes it takes a Donald Trump to change Washington." The ad focused on job creation statistics and a dip in illegal immigration
President Donald Trump was jeered again during the World Series game, this time during the finale Wednesday as rain-soaked Washington Nationals booed his re-election ad which appeared on the home stadium's jumbotron.
The 30-second advert appeared at the moment the D.C. team was losing in the fifth inning as the clip proclaimed the president is "no 'Mr. Nice Guy,' but sometimes it takes a Donald Trump to change Washington." The ad focused on job creation statistics and a dip in illegal immigration.
It also mentioned the weekend military strike that killed ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, lauding the president. As the clip played, a voiceover intoned that Democrats "would rather focus on impeachment and phony investigations."
The House Democrats, led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi passed a resolution to formalize the Trump impeachment process Thursday morning. As the commercial appeared on the Jumbotron, thousands of fans present at Nationals Park booed and chanted "Lock Him Up," a phrase derived from Trump's coinage of the "Lock Her Up" slogan, directed at his 2016 political rival, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
The advert, however, received a positive signal from former President Barack Obama's 2008 campaign manager David Plouffe, who tweeted: "@realDonaldTrump ad that just ran during World Series was quite strong. National TV ads in October of off year - unprecedented."
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, shortly after Plouffe's tweet, took a dig at his "unprecedented" comment while appearing during a 'Fox and Friends' interview Thursday morning. "You know why?" she asked. "Because they've raised unprecedented amounts of money, but also because this man is under unprecedented attack. The people see through it."
Trump was greeted with loud booings Sunday when he attended Game 5 of the Fall Classic, despite showing up a few hours after announcing that the ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi had been exterminated.
