President Trump got booed by a left-wing crowd at Game 5 of the World Series in Washington, D.C., and the leftist media gleefully hyped the incident. However, they forget that Barack Obama was also booed at baseball and football games during his presidency. So were Bill Clinton and George Bush.
Besides, “The Five” panel noted that Trump “was laughing” while the booing occurred because that’s how you roll when you’re the leader of the free world. Not everyone is going to like you.
“He’s laughing!” co-host Dana Perino — who is not a Trump supporter — noted.
Host Jesse Watters pointed out: “I researched presidents that got booed and Barack Obama got booed in Baltimore and also in St. Louis.”

Democratic guest host Capri Cafaro said you have the right to boo, but called the gesture disrespectful.
“Everybody has their First Amendment right to express themselves however they want, but regardless of whether or not you agree with President Trump, he is the president of the United States and this is the World Series,” Cafaro said. “I may not agree with pretty much anything President Trump does, but I would refrain from booing and just be silent.”
For the record, the Washington Nationals lost the game to the Houston Astros by a score of 7-1. Haha.
Greg Gutfeld mocked the hypocrisy of leftists, who derisively laughed because a crowd in left-wing Washington booed Trump. Gutfeld asked how people could feel so free to openly boo Trump like that. After all, hasn’t the media repeatedly shrieked that he’s an authoritarian dictator?
“Wasn’t [the United States] supposed to be like ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ under Trump?” Gutfeld asked. “Yet people are booing him to his face.”
Separately, Gutfeld noted that the media were hyping the booing incident to trivialize Trump’s huge victory with the killing of ISIS founder Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi over the weekend.
Gutfeld pointed out that President Trump had also ordered a hit on the ISIS spokesman.
“This must’ve been very hilarious that Trump was able to kill the ISIS PR guy too, so they couldn’t get a comment from him,” Gutfeld said. “CNN couldn’t go to ISIS and get a comment [from its PR guy] because he was dead.”
On Twitter, leftists mocked Trump for getting booed, and falsely claimed that Barack Obama was never booed during his presidency.
Meanwhile, remember this? Obama was booed at the 2009 All-Star Game.
Barack Obama was also booed at a Baltimore Ravens game.
NFL fans didn’t care much for Obama, either.

Unlike Obama, the 6-foot-2 Trump was actually a star athlete in high school, where he was captain of the baseball team.
Trump’s baseball skills even got him scouted by professional teams like the Boston Red Sox and the Philadelphia Phillies. Let that sink in.
Did you know?

Meanwhile, let’s take a walk down memory lane for when Obama tried to throw a baseball.

Flashback: In 2004, Donald Trump threw out the first pitch for the Somerset Patriots, a professional baseball team based in New Jersey. At the time, Trump was 58 years old.
