So much for defanging the poisonous debate in Washington.

Dozens of congressional staffers erupted into boos, jeers and even vulgar gesticulations Thursday when President Trump appeared in a video at the Congressional Baseball Game at Nationals Park.
Mr. Trump delivered a message of unity, but some fans in the stands weren’t having any of it.

One man shouted an expletive at the video screen as Mr. Trump was telling the fans: “We are showing the world we will not be intimidated by threats.”

The episode marred what had been a night celebrating those wounded in Wednesday’s murderous attack on GOP players practicing for the game.

When both teams went to second base — the symbolic spot where Rep. Steve Scalise was wounded in the attack at the Alexandria practice field — to kneel and pray, some mocked the prayer too. The fans appeared to be Democratic staffers, having booed the announcement of several members of the GOP lineup.


  1. All the class and sophistication of a group of sixth graders. Or well maybe only fourth graders.

  2. At first I was going to express my outrage at the conduct of the DC Democratic staffers. Then it occurred to mean that this was to be expected. Hostility to Christianity is one of their core values. It is a form of "virtue signalling" to others that you are a part of the group, when you mock Christianity. Remember, at one of the previous Democratic national conventions, broadcast for all to see, was the booing at the mention of Christianity. They are just showing their true colors. And if you give it some meditation, the hatred of Jesus, is the underlying reason for the positions and policies of the Democrats.
