When it was announced that the New York Yankees were going to have Donald Trump throw out the first pitch for an August 15th game, Palmer Report predicted that it wouldn’t end up happening. The Yankees were going to face widespread backlash for allowing a murderous racist traitor anywhere near their stadium – and things were going to be even uglier for Trump.
Trump was going to avoid getting booed by fans in the stands, but only because there are no fans in the stands this season. But with so many Yankees players taking a knee during the National Anthem, and Trump still clinging to the wrong side of that issue for idiotic reasons, the whole thing was going to be an ugly scene for him.
So we’re not surprised to see Donald Trump pulling the plug on throwing out the first pitch. We’re just a bit surprised it’s happening already:
To be clear, if any of these excuses were real, they would have prevented Donald Trump from agreeing to throw out the first pitch to begin with. The real reason he’s canceling is that he didn’t want to have to stand there and play the fool while most or all Yankees players take a knee and show the world that they’re not on his side of the issue.
