What Do We Do When Our President Is Booed By An Entire MLB Baseball Stadium?


Sunday night the President of the United States of America attended Game 5 of the MLB World Series. President Donald Trump was accompanied by wife Melania Trump and a number of other politicians in the Washington Suite at Nationals Park.

Upon being introduced to the crowd after the third inning during the Nationals' salute to veterans, President Trump was welcomed (or maybe we should say unwelcomed) by a wave of boos and "lock him up" chants from the sold-out crowd (USA Today).

It is important to note the announcement made by Pres. Trump just hours earlier confirming the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

The announcement has taken much attention on Twitter, with the President's approach, tone, and shared details being the main topics in question.

President Trump's approach has been a hot topic far longer than his time spent as President of the United States of America. His entire candidacy has been covered in controversy, questioned by not only those who oppose him, but many who support him.

Although Pres. Trump is far from the first President to be booed, the current controversy surrounding his presidency raises the question:

What do we do, America?

We are booing our President in the form of masses.

We are on edge fearing what our President may say or tweet next.

Where do we, as an entire country (Republicans/Democrats, conservatives/liberals, immigrants, soldiers, and citizens), turn?

My instincts tell me that, no matter where you stand in the political spectrum, booing the President at a baseball game is not the answer to our country's problems. After all, what is more American than Game 5 of the MLB World Series in the United States of America?

So, what do we do when our President is booed by an entire MLB sold-out baseball stadium? Well, your answer is as good as mine. That is, if you even have an answer.
