President Trump was greeted on Sunday with loud boos and chants of “lock him up” during his appearance on the jumbotron at Nationals Park for Game 5 of the World Series.
Trump was sitting in the stands along with First Lady Melania Trump, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), House Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) and House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.). Other GOP members of Congress present included Sens. Lindsey Graham (S.C.) and David Perdue (Ga.).

According to multiple reporters who attended the game, the audience erupted into thunderous boos when the president and his group of Republican allies appeared on the Jumbotron.
Loud, sustained boos for Trump at Nats Stadium when he was announced. Maybe loudest crowd cheer of the night.

Baseball fans also expressed support for the president’s impeachment by unfurling a large “Impeach Trump” banner and holding “Veterans for Impeachment” signs behind home plate.
