Skip to comments.Nats owner says Trump has 'every right' to come to World Series game Sunday

Nationals principal owner Mark Lerner said President Trump has every right to attend Sundays World Series game in Washington to watch the Nationals face off against the Astros.
Well, he has every right to come, Lerner said in an interview with The Washington Post Friday. Hes the president of the United States whether you like him or not. Its a special event. He should be at it.
The president will not throw out the first pitch of Sundays game, with the Nationals instead tapping chef, philanthropist and vocal Trump critic José Andrés for the honor.
The first pitches are our call, and we felt there are many other candidates that should be considered before [Trump], Lerner said. We wanted to have the right people. I think we got a nice mix of people.
MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred said the league spoke with Trump about throwing out a first pitch, but that Trump declined, citing concerns about causing delays for fans entering the stadium.
We actually had a conversation with him about first pitches, Manfred told The Post. His view was that in order to make the fan experience as positive as possible, he would arrive at Game 5 sometime after the game began so it wouldnt interfere with fans getting into the stadium. Quite frankly, we were very grateful for that.

It's a big jump from Trump to José Andrés.
Nationals principal owner Mark Lerner said President Trump has every right to attend Sundays World Series game
That’s mighty white of him to allow the President of the United States to show up for a baseball game.
MSM to Pelosi: “Do you think President Trump has a right to attend the World Series?”
Pelosi: “Well I think we need to have a discussion about whether it is appropriate for a President under an impeachment investigation to attend such an event”.
Why José Andrés?
And if not the president, why non Don Jr., Eric or Rudy?
In any cast, the crowd will go wild when Trump walks in.
The over and under for the standing ovation is 11.5 minutes.
So, he's definitely a White Hispanic...
A big jump down. Like into the septic tank.
Washington is a political town but I would have thought the Nationals would bring out past Washington baseball stars like big Frank Howard (now 83), Camilo Pascual (now 85), Ken McMullen (now 77) or Livan Hernandez (now 44). Maybe a relative of Walter Johnson, the greatest player in Washington history.
Next in line might be folks associated with bringing the Nats to DC back in 2005.
Why does everything in DC have to be about politics?
Please tell me she didn’t really say this?
You gotta figure most of those with the ability to pay for a ticket in DC are somehow suckling at the Uniparty/DS/Federal teat. Not many Trump fans there.
This ia setup. Trump would be smart not to attend. He doesn’t need the potentially bad reception.
I wonder if I am the only one who thinks of Frank Howard every time I hear about “the Nats”
Still remember listening to his home run in the Senators’ last game here like it was yesterday.
The Nats owner is giving Trump the middle-finger salute. Why would Trump walk into this trap?
How’d he get a ticket to the game? lol
Trump knows baseball better than most. He has, in his back pocket, the Covfefe Play. This is even better than the Hidden Ball Trick. Covfefe wokrs like this. Trump announces his intention to attend the game. Hours prior to the start of the game, Secret Service agents swarm the premises and surrounds ensuring there are no hidden threats. Attendees will be subjected to long lines and security procedures that make going through TSA lines seem like a two minute wait for your chow at Turd Burgers or wherever. Of course all the fans who hate Trump will hate him more. The TV network talking heads will prattle on and on about the situation and maybe interview some beaner ball players to get negative comments. And then to complete the Covfefe Play, Trump never shows up but goes on Twitter near the end of the game to congratulate the winner of the PGA tournament being held outside Tokyo.
It appears some in MLB want the league to go the way of the NFL and NBA.
A diss to PRESIDENT TRUMP at the WORLD SERIES would further strengthen the resolve of his base and bring fence sitters into the fold.
Trump should throw the first pitch after the hecklers are removed.
I’d like to see her under investigation
More than a right! Read what hes accomplished in 3 years and youll lay red carpet, have a 21 gun salute and treat him and the office with the respect hes earned! You know...how you treated Obama.
Civil and civilized Americans would welcome any president at such an event. But whiners, crybabies and tantrum-throwing fascists wouldn’t.
