The deluge of boos was the second time in six days the president has been loudly booed during a public appearance.
Last Sunday, 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.

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.).
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.

Twitter users responded to Trump’s public rejections by retweeting videos of former President Obama receiving a nearly 30-second standing ovation and chants of “MVP!” from fans in Toronto as he attended Game 2 of the NBA Finals in June.
Obama could be seen standing up during the chants and ovation to acknowledge the crowd.
