Trump to Throw First Pitch at Yankee Stadium While Fauci’s Ball hits The Dirt at Nationals’ Game

President Donald Trump will be tossing the first pitch at Yankee Stadium on opening day for the Major League Baseball season, and is getting in some practice by throwing shade at Dr. Anthony Fauci’s poor attempt at the Nationals’ game.

Fauci, a National’s super fan, threw the ceremonial first pitch at Washington Nationals’ home opener against the Yankees on Thursday. But the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases soon found out that even though his team won the World Series last season, it didn’t mean he had the ability to throw a strike. 

The doctor’s poor attempt at a pitch hooked so far outside of home plate that the catcher had to stand up to walk after it.  Donald Trump Jr. heckled Fauci on Twitter with a clip of the video and a jeer: “Just a bit outside!!!”

Prior to the game, the Nationals and Yankees teams collectively kneeled during the National Anthem but stood for the Star-Spangled Banner.  

During an interview with Sean Hannity on Thursday, President Trump expressed his optimism that players would stand during the anthem at the Yankee’s game. While he’s excited that baseball has returned, “I hope everyone’s standing; I hope they’re not going to be kneeling when the flag is raised,” he stated. “That would hurt a lot of people in our country.” 

He went on to say: “There are plenty of places you can protest. You don’t have to protest on the raising of our flag.” 

For Trump, who has thrown ceremonial first pitches at both major and minor league games in the past, this will be his first pitch as President of the United States. Hopefully he retained the skillset he developed as a baseball player in high school and will put Fauci’s attempt to shame.

Protesting the flag is a reason to never watch pro sports. Anytime I see someone not supporting our flag I will not support them.

I join the crowd and will not watch a game this year. America has given them an opportunity and they have shown distain for America and our flag. The flag represents the hope and purpose of America. It is not the flag that creates the problems we need to resolve, it is the humans that are imperfect, including these rich elitists who obtained their wealth and fame under the very flag they now condemn.

It is not distain for the flag as much as it is a lack of courage by some of them to stand up for their beliefs. They should take some of their millions and at least rent some testicles.

“Prior to the game, the Nationals and Yankees teams collectively kneeled during the National Anthem but stood for the Star-Spangled Banner.”

Am I missing something here or is the author confused? Regardless, I guess baseball is now on the no watch list along with football and basketball. I don’t care what these useful idiots think they are doing I am more concerned with what they are doing. And the league owners should know better, but I guess they are either useful idiots or support the destruction of The United States of America as well (they can be both at the same time).

Too many professional sports players have “sold out” their integrity for the almighty dollar. That is their choice and mine is to forever boycott the players and their sports as long as they allow politics to dictate their patriotism. There is no genuine defense for selling out!!

Most if not all of the Pro Sports People, regardless of the sport are just as bad as the Hollywood Elite. They are way over paid for what they do, which is very little, they spit in the face of the Fans that are Paying them their outragous salaries and in the face of the Country that allows them to make such saleries. I can count on one hand the number of Pro and College Sports I have watch in the past ten years. IF all of the sports teams went away today it would Not have the slightest effect on me.
