“Fox & Friends” put a creative spin on the thunderous boos President Trump received as he entered Madison Square Garden on Saturday ahead of a UFC 244 fight, marking the second time in less than a week that the president has been booed during a public appearance.
As Trump entered the stadium, the crowd greeted him with a mixture of loud boos, profanity and some scattered cheers.

But the Fox News hosts decided focused on the sporadic cheers, not the boos.
Co-host Pete Hegseth said the crowd was showing its appreciation for “the brawler style of a brawler president.”
“There are some media outlets that are saying they mostly heard boos. This has become so juvenile,” said co-host Ed Henry. “If you actually listen to the video and the audio, there clearly were a ton of cheers. And the bottom line, who cares? The president was clearly trying to have a fun night.”

This is the second time in a week Trump has been booed in public by thousands of people at once.
On October 27, Trump was greeted with thunderous boos and chants of “lock him up” during his appearance on the jumbotron at Nationals Park for Game 5 of the World Series.
