Trump Plans To Attend World Series Game 5 In DC

The Washington Post reports:

President Trump said Thursday that he plans to attend Game 5 of the World Series at Nationals Park on Sunday if the Washington Nationals and Houston Astros are still playing, though he did not confirm if he had been asked to throw out the ceremonial first pitch.

“I don’t know. They’ve got to dress me up in a lot of heavy armor — I’ll look too heavy,” he responded when a reporter asked him about whether he would take the mound. He appeared to be making a reference to a bullet proof vest that presidents sometimes are required to wear by Secret Service when they are amid large crowds.

Trump’s attendance at the 41,000-seat stadium in Southeast would mark a rare time he has ventured into the District’s entertainment and nightlife scene, other than his occasional visits to the Trump hotel a few blocks from the White House. It could also mean increased security restrictions at the ballpark for what is expected to be a standing-room-only crowd.

Let’s hope that the Nationals sweep the series. And if doesn’t happen, fire up your meme generators.
