A video of former President Obama receiving a standing ovation and chants of “MVP!” from fans in Toronto as he attended Game 2 of the NBA Finals in June resurfaced on Monday a day after President Trump was greeted 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.
According to multiple reporters who attended Sunday’s game, the audience erupted into thunderous boos when the president and his group of Republican allies appeared on the Jumbotron.
The crowd also began a brief “lock him up” chant.
