On Wednesday night, the Washington Nationals defeated the Houston Astros 6-2 to win the World Series for the first time in the team’s history. Naturally, fans were reveling in the streets after the game, and local news cameras swarmed the celebration. One Fox 5 reporter got a little more than she bargained for when she asked one fan for his thoughts on the win.
And while it would have been nice to have just one night away from Donald Trump, who seems to consume every headline, all day, every day, Trump couldn’t resist making himself the center of attention again last night, airing an ad during the game that featured “tough guy” Trump and a photo of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the terrorist killed in a recent U.S. military operation. It appears the crowds in Washington, who gathered both inside and outside the stadium for a watch party (the final game in the series took place in Houston), are going to need another scolding by the Very Serious People about booing the president in public, because when the ad aired, the boos once again rained down.
And for Houston fans who are upset that they weren’t able to pull off the game 7 World Series victory at home, you really only have one person to blame.
