Nats fans boo Trump, chant ‘Lock him up’

In nearly three years in office, President Donald Trump has rarely ventured outside the White House into Washington, D.C., save for crossing the street to the hotel he owns.

Perhaps now we know why.

With the Washington Nationals in the World Series, Trump decided to attend Game 5 against the Houston Astros. He surrounded himself in a luxury box with wounded veterans and Republican sycophants.

And when he was introduced during the game, the crowd—which has been ornery after back-to-back losses—made themselves heard.

Some think his face turned into a grimace when he heard it. You be the judge.

But one thing is certain. With the president facing impeachment in the House, the crowd let him have a taste of his own medicine.

The Nats are currently losing 4-0.
