President Trump was famously booed when he attended Game 5 of the World Series at National’s Park when the home team took on the Houston Astros. Liberals were ecstatic over the gesture.
A week later, Trump and his two sons attended UFC 244 at Madison Square Garden in New York City where he was met with both boos and cheers. Anybody who tries to convince you otherwise is flat-out lying.
And now Trump is expected to attend the LSU-Alabama game and here’s what the Crimson Tide coach had to say about it.
President Trump was booed in Washington, D.C. at a Nationals home game during Game 5 when the stadium showed him on the stadium screen.
They chanted, “Lock him up! Lock him up!” repeatedly after the rain of boos and a couple of fans even smuggled in an “Impeach Trump” sign they hung in the nosebleed section.
When Trump entered Madison Square Garden for UFC 244, most of the videos that went viral online were from the nosebleed section and it seemed worse than the reality of the situation – some fans booed and the rest of them cheered. It was muffled together, which made it sound more like boos.
Trump is now planning on attending the marquee NCAA football matchup between the University of Alabama and Louisiana State University on Saturday. They’re two of the top teams in the country so it’s not surprising this would be a game he would want to attend.
Nevertheless, noise is already surrounding this game because of its high-profile attendee.
And coach Alabama Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban was over the moon about having him attend the game.
Coach Saban told the Montgomery Advertiser, “It’s an honor, I think, that the President of the United States would be interested enough to come to the game. I’m sure we’ll do everything we can to welcome him.”
LSU quarterback Joe Burrow expressed the same sentiments saying he thought it was “pretty cool” President Trump would attend the game as well.
Burrow told the media, “Regardless of your political views, it’s pretty cool having the President at the game. Doesn’t matter if you’re a Democrat or a Republican, President at the game is pretty cool.”
That should be the case across any and every sport but unfortunately a lot of liberal athletes don’t see it that way.
Liberals are planning to protest and are even bringing that obnoxious “baby Trump” balloon down there.
The school is taking his presence very seriously, however, and is planning to revoke seating from those who plan to protest Trump. They feel as though it would be a distraction from the game.
Alabama’s Student Government Association sent a letter to students warning that they could lose their block seating for the rest of the season if they “engage in disruptive behavior” during the LSU game.
From the University of Alabama SGA, ahead of President Trump’s visit to the game. Strange that in all the games in which drunken bacchanalia has been tolerated, if not celebrated and encouraged I’ve never once been warned to not be “disruptive” pic.twitter.com/1j87QlxSDr

This letter was apparently sent to block seat groups.
People are crying that this is a violation of the First Amendment Freedom of Speech, but it’s not true. The First Amendment protects Americans from being prosecuted by the United States Government. That’s it.
It does not protect you from your school, your employer, and even your friends and family. If the school wants to issue a warning against “disruptive behavior” then that’s the administrators’ prerogative.
