Of the 25 athletes on the Washington Nationals 2019 World Series championship roster, nine decided not to attend President Trump’s celebratory invitation to the White House.
But that’s OK. The remaining 62 percent remained loyal to the team, their manager, their coaches… and above all, to their fellow teammates.
To the delight of the POTUS and FLOTUS, two of the ballplayers took it upon themselves to go full-on MAGA.
As reported by Breitbart.com;
Washington Nationals player Ryan Zimmerman, who hit the first World Series home run in Nationals franchise history, thanked President Trump for “continuing to make America the greatest country in the world” at the White House Monday afternoon.
Before walking away, Zimmerman gave the president a Nats jersey with “Trump 45″ on the back.
Washington Nationals’ catcher Kurt Suzuki wore a MAGA hat while speaking at the White House’s welcoming ceremony for the World Series champions.
Following his brief remarks, Suzuki was embraced by President Donald Trump.
As reported by The Daily Caller, the players that boycotted the presidential invite are as follows;
- Anthony Rendon
- Javy Guerra
- Joe Ross
- Wander Suero
- Wilmer Difo
- Michael A. Taylor
- Victor Robles
- Roenis Elías
- Sean Doolittle
