#Trumpeachment is everywhere, even at America's pastime

It could be his jury pool.

When his name was announced to the sellout crowd after the third inning of World Series Game 5 in the midst of the Washington Nationals’ regular salute to veterans, Trump was met by a torrent of boos. The noise was intense and long-lasting, a wave of negativity that washed up to the Major League Baseball suite where the president was watching the final game of the Series to be held at Nationals Park.

But the moment the big screen in center field switched from showing Trump to once again showing the veterans, the boos from the crowd immediately returned to cheers.


Trump’s visit made many people uncomfortable. He did not sit with the principal owners of the Nationals, the Lerner family, in their suite. Word was the Lerners didn’t want to have anything to do with him during his visit, a source who asked not to be named but was familiar with the situation told USA TODAY Sports.
