Congressional Staffers Boo Likely for the Last Time [VIDEO]
Daily the Left give us reasons to drain the swamp.
DC is supposed to show respect for the president regardless of political affiliation.
However, as we have learned the hard way, the only rules the Left follows are those they make.
At the Congressional Baseball Game at Nationals Park, dozens of congressional staffers erupted into boos, jeers, and even vulgar gesticulations Thursday when President Trump appeared in a video. I hope they captured all of these swamp rats on video to make it easier to identify them.
President Trump’s message may have been one of unity, but the Left wants no part of it.
Keep in mind that the boos followed the vicious attack by Bernie Sanders’ supporter and leftist James Hodgkinson. One would think that in the wake of such a tragedy, Democrats would put their animus away for just a moment!
One man shouted an expletive at the video screen as Mr. Trump was telling the fans: “We are showing the world we will not be intimidated by threats.”
As the Washington Times wrote,
The episode marred what had been a night celebrating those wounded in Wednesday’s murderous attack on GOP players practicing for the game.
When both teams went to second base — the symbolic spot where Rep. Steve Scalise was wounded in the attack at the Alexandria practice field — to kneel and pray, some mocked the prayer too. The fans appeared to be Democratic staffers, having booed the announcement of several members of the GOP lineup.
Put another way, even in what should be a friendly game of baseball, the Democrats hate Republicans.
Senator Rand Paul and others say this game must go on.
I see no need for this, and wonder what the cost of such an event is, and if the taxpayers must pay for it.
The game represents another boondoggle, as Congressmen try to remember the old days when most sucked at sports. Moreover, the game has gone from goon-natured fun, where supposedly both parties cared about the country. Now, we witness two groups who plot against the American taxpayer, with very little distinction between the two.
America already has a bunch of overpaid babies playing baseball, so we don’t need another.
And we certainly don’t need leftists being rewarded with play. These people work less in a year than the average American, and we indulge their intramural sports?
