President Donald Trump will be attending Game 4 of the World Series in Atlanta, Ga. on Saturday as the Houston Astros and the Atlanta Braves face off for the honor of winning the Commissioner’s Trophy in 2021.
“Looking forward to being at the World Series in Atlanta tonight,” Trump announced in a new statement. “Thank you to the Commissioner of Baseball Rob Manfred, and Randy Levine of the great New York Yankees, for the invite. Melania and I are looking forward to a wonderful evening watching two great teams!”
In April, Trump previously slammed Major League Baseball (MLB) for going “woke” in response to the league’s decision to move the All-Star Game and the Draft from Atlanta because of their opposition to new voting integrity laws in Georgia. The law, which simply requires photo ID to apply for a ballot, has been labeled by Democrats and opponents of election integrity as “racist,” despite no real evidence to support this claim.
Trump fired off at MLB in his April statement:
“Baseball is already losing tremendous numbers of fans, and now they leave Atlanta with their All-Star Game because they are afraid of the Radical Left Democrats who do not want voter I.D., which is desperately needed, to have anything to with our elections. Boycott baseball and all of the woke companies that are interfering with Free and Fair Elections. Are you listening Coke, Delta, and all!”
In what is perhaps an amusing twist of fate, the World Series has brought the MLB back to Atlanta, thanks to the Braves’ playing in the championship. Trump’s decision to attend Game 4 is unexpected as the 45th president has limited his public appearances considerably over the past year, outside of exclusive interviews and speaking at rallies.
Over the past few months, sporting games and events across the nation have erupted with fans chanting “F*** Joe Biden!” and its more modest counterpart, “Let’s Go Brandon!” in response to a seemingly nationwide distaste for the current Commander in Chief, due to hyper-inflation, a botched Afghanistan withdrawal, an unsecured southern border, and a supply-chain crisis. In fact, “Let’s Go Brandon” has become such a popular, national sporting event chant that rapper Bryson Gray reached #1 on the iTunes charts with a musical version of the chant – despite being banned and censored by YouTube and Instagram.
In light of Trump’s anticipated appearance tonight at the World Series, it remains to be seen if the “Let’s Go Brandon” trend will continue. Regardless, Trump supporters will undoubtedly be excited to see the 45th president and the First Lady tonight at the game.
