‘Lock him up!’: Nationals Ballpark breaks out into loud boos as Trump is finally announced

President Donald Trump arrived at Nationals Stadium as the first official pitch of the game was being thrown, but according to one Bloomberg reporter, hardly anyone noticed.

It was unknown if Trump would be officially announced by the team because he was expected to be booed. As one person noted, the Nationals stadium holds more people than supported Trump in Washington, D.C. in 2016.

It went exactly as expected, with scores of people dressed in bright-red shirts screaming their displeasure at the president. They even began chanting “lock him up!”

Here’s why Mike Pompeo picked the worst possible moment for his expletive-laden anti-Ukraine rant

Published

on

By all accounts, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's interview with "All Things Considered" host Mary Louise Kelly was a disaster. He reportedly swore at her, challenged her to pick Ukraine off an unmarked map, and said "Do you think Americans care about Ukraine?" — an incredibly insulting statement for America's top diplomat to say of an allied foreign country.

But as Politico noted, the timing of all this was especially ill-considered, because Pompeo is gearing up for an official visit to Ukraine — and even before this outburst, that visit was fraught with difficulties.
