MLB Star Responds to Leftists Angered by His MAGA Hat

Published

on

A day after the World Series champion Washington Nationals visited the White House, the event was still reverberating well outside the Beltway.

A morning segment on “Fox & Friends” contained a roundup of liberal overreaction to the actions of Nationals catcher Kurt Suzuki, who caused leftist heads to explode throughout the land when he donned a “Make America Great Again” and got a playful hug from President Donald Trump.

And Suzuki himself was a focus of media attention for his own reaction to White House welcome — and to the backlash it engendered.

“It was amazing,” Suzuki told USA Today in a text message. “That was the president. Just trying to have some fun.”

“Everybody makes everything political. It was about our team winning the World Series.”

For liberals, of course, everything has to be political.

And the moment Suzuki put on that MAGA cap seemed to push many right over the edge.

It seemed innocuous enough. Trump began the introduction by talking about a game-winning home run Suzuki hit in a Sept. 3 game, then brought the catcher to the microphone.

Putting the MAGA cap on his head, Suzuki said simply, “I love you all. I love you all. Thank you.”

A now-deleted Twitter post from the political website the Palmer Report likened the MAGA cap to a Nazi swastika.

Soledad O’Brien, the ludicrously leftist former CNN host and former special correspondent for Al Jazeera America, called the Suzuki scene “pathetic.”

A New York Times and CNN contributor, Wajahat Ali, took to Twitter to basically call the applause for Suzuki hypocritical, presumably because it was coming from the Trump White House.

“They will never love you, Kurt Suzuki,” Ali wrote. “They will never love you. Enjoy the hug and the delusion. Whatever makes you feel great.”

Well, Suzuki didn’t need the permission of liberals like Ali, or O’Brien, to enjoy the moment.

On a day when, according to Fox News, seven of his teammates declined to attend the White House gathering, Suzuki put it all in perspective.

“Everybody makes everything political,” as he texted USA Today. “It was about our team winning the World Series.”

Trump supporters can understand that. There was a time in the United States when even liberals could understand something that simple (just like there was a time when a harmless article of clothing like a MAGA hat didn’t make Americans targets for harassment).

Maybe another election in 2020, and another four years of a Donald Trump presidency, will help them see the light.

Stranger things have happened.

After all, pretty much no one expected the Nationals to win the World Series this year, either.

    Yeah, thank you Kurt Suzuki for what you did. Really enjoyed it. And, yes, congratulations on winning the World Series (even though I was rooting for the Astros).

    Thank you so much for standing up against everyone. A visit to the Whitehouse is a true Blessing, especially when invited by the President.

  • Mary says:

    Mr. Suzuki,
    Raise your head up high.
    You’ve accomplished what many only wish.
    Let all that Hate roll off your shoulders.
    You’re above it all.
    Congratulations on your win.
    The President “Does Care” unlike what the leftists say.

    Good luck hoping those clowns will ever learn to not be fanatical sheep.

  • kat says:

    Love it! God bless Suzuki!

  • William says:

    Soledad O’Brien is a big time left winger. One of those devastated when Hillary lost. Who cares what she says or thinks? She is a nobody.

  • Roger says:

    Everyone knows that the democrats and the MSM are insane but they don’t want to leave any stone unturned they want to make sure every American knows that they have lost their minds!

  • Madeleine says:

    Best ignore the sour pusses. They clearly have no sense of humour or patriotic loyalty Shame, just feel sorry for them, sour grapes produces vinegar 🙂

  • Goodforall says:

    The party of hate cant stand anyone who doesnt share their opinions. Anyone else notice that this really started to get out of hand during the eight years of Obama and really increased when Killarey was defeated?

  • Sandra McDonald says:

    This is America and we can wear any damn hat we want to. Time the Democrats learn this. We all have choices we make without the help of a bunch of idiots telling us what we can and cannot do when it comes to who we support. I want to thank all the National Ball players who came to the White House. For those who stayed away because they don’t support Trump thank you also for not making a public display and ruined it for others.

  • Stella says:

    ABC News……That hug was not awkward at all. You showing your BIAS again.

  • Lisa says:

  • Karyn says:

    I love it! President Trump hugged him just like he hugged the flag, with total endearment.

  • Jim says:

  • SusieQue says:

    Is it just me…or is it WAY past time for the whiny ass cry baby Libs to take off their poor lil ole me pity party dresses???? Maybe we should all just throw them a Participation Trophy???

  • Martin says:

    Suzuki Congrats, Outstanding!

  • Martin says:

    Suzuki. Congratulations to you and you Team to one of the. Best
    World Series. I tip my hat to you for being Brave to wear The Magna Hat.

  • Diane says:

    By showing their hatred toward a MAGA hat, the only logical conclusion is that the Left wants to “Make America Lousy Again.”

  • M. Warf says:

    Suzuki MAKES AMERICA GREAT

  • Sunflower Surfer says:

    It is so entertaining to watch the Democrats/Lefties/Progressives absolutely loose any sense of common sense or decorum over something so trivial in the grand scope of things. Mr. Suzuki, thank you for helping them shoot themselves in there foot?feet.
