Skip to comments."I just can't do it": Washington Nationals pitcher Sean Doolittle declines White House invitation
Posted on 11/02/2019 1:11:03 PM PDT by a little elbow grease
The Washington Nationals will head to the White House Monday to meet with President Trump following the team's historic World Series victory. But pitcher Sean Doolittle won't be going.
"There's a lot of things, policies that I disagree with, but at the end of the day, it has more to do with the divisive rhetoric and the enabling of conspiracy theories and widening the divide in this country," Doolittle said in an interview with The Washington Post.
"At the end of the day, as much as I wanted to be there with my teammates and share that experience with my teammates, I can't do it," Doolittle said. "I just can't do it."

The FOOL'S fool title
They are shttholes.
That isn’t the President’s fault.
He is a Useful Idiot.
Who gives a crap? Cant they just go/dont go and not be so dramatic about it? Feel its against your conscience or better judgement? Fine. Then be a man and bow out gracefully....and quietly.
Hes been a known lefty for a long time. I think his wife is a radical and hes a cuck.
I Scarcely Give A S....
There was a time when entertainment stars and sports stars weren’t considered relevant enough to warrant an invite to the White House, or politicians simply thought such a thing belonged to the realm of civil society and private citizens. Its time to bring back that notion and stop this nonsense.
Once again, leftist politics has divided and destroyed something that once united people. Nothing lasts forever.
Well, Sean Doolittle’s been sufficiently brainwashed.
He is just another ignorant citizen.
F. his sorry ignorant *ss.
Well.......at least hes living up to his name.
Hes gonna Doolittle, rather than the right thing.
Idiot. Once in a life time and hes going to blow it. He can tell his Grandchildren he Almost went to the White House and Almost met a sitting President.
I wish the president would just put a stop to all of these winning teams making a White House visit. Problem solved. He should just put the word out that if any team wants to come to the White House, they should contact him and he’ll let them know if he can swing it.
And he wants to make damn sure he does his share of THAT..!
Yup.. His wife won’t let him.
See what I’ve been saying to those Freepers supporting these pukes ? Regardless of who wins in the WS, there’s ALWAYS at least one leftard asshole drama queen Never Trumper...
Another bunch that are scared to death they might like Trump
“Hes been a known lefty for a long time. “
Literally. He’s a southpaw, and looks like a leftist goofball.
He had an average season...4.05 ERA, 1.3 WHIP. Definitely not up to his career stats.
His contract with the Nats is up. The club has an option year, if it chooses to exercise it. I’m guessing they will, and he’ll pitch for them in 2020.
It’s all about you, Sparky.
Because you are the center of the universe...
...in your drug-addled mind.
No one is forcing you to go douche bag..dont want to go, than dont
Great, fine, it’s not like I watch your stupid sport anyway. Go/no-go, it’s your choice, why do you have to do a press-release to tell the world? Self-important much, asshat?
