‘Whoever suggested this should be fired’: Tom Price booed while throwing first pitch at DC Nationals game
Alan Dershowitz was right about one thing: Washingtonians really don’t like President Donald Trump or his administration.
As reported by The Hill, a Washington Nationals game became the site of dissidence when Health Secretary Tom Price threw the first pitch on Wednesday — and was met with boos by the crowd.
Attendees of the game took to Twitter to describe the scene — and, of course, to crack jokes.
“Whoever told Tom Price this was a good idea should be fired,” Pod Save America co-host Dan Pfeiffer tweeted.

Whose idea was it to have Tom Price throw out the first pitch in DC?? Stick to 1. Katie Ledecky or 2. a baby

Tom Price, the head of HHS, just threw out the first pitch at Nats Park. He wasn't greeted warmly.

No one except Mattis, Kelly and McMaster should go near an MLB mound

The Nats are really getting the good celebrities people want to see to throw out the first pitch. Sheriff David Clarke is clearly next.

Tom Price always looks like the mundane evil character in a B/W propaganda film from the 40's.

Good thing for Tom Price there's a small pre-game crowd because these boos would be a lot louder pic.twitter.com/KVHmokqpjV
