Furious Liberals ATTACK Innocent Baseball Star

Liberals are the worst kind of people…

There was a time, not so very long ago, that when the president of the United States invited you to the White House, you went. Even if you were not in line with his policies. Even if you voted for the other candidate. Even if you couldn’t stand the man, frankly.

He is the U.S. president — elected by Americans — and it is the White House, steeped in history and the very emblem of democracy.

But it’s no more. Nowadays, if you’re a North American Free Trade Agreement fan, and the White House guy likes the U.S.- Mexico-Canada Agreement, then, you’re allowed to call him every name in the book.

Then there is Kurt Suzuki, born and raised in Maui, a fourth generation Japanese American. He bounced for years in Major League Baseball before being picked up by the Washington Nationals — who traded him back promptly. But the Nats re-signed the 36-year-old catcher in 2018, and this year Suzuki fought through injuries to help the team win their first World Series (and he became the first Hawaiian-born player ever to hit a home run in the Series).

And he went to the White House when he was invited. He also took something special along with him.

Trump, standing Monday with the team on the White House’s Truman Balcony, introduced Suzuki, saying he hit “an amazing three-run homer.”

“Where’s Kurt? Where is he?” Trump asked, looking around. “C’mere,” he said, spotting him. “Say a couple words. C’mon.”

Just then, Suzuki donned a “Make America Great Again” hat. Trump feigned shock, then embraced him. “I love him!” Trump said.

“I love you all. I love you all. Thank you,” Suzuki said.

With that much love floating around, it was time to cue the haters.

Wajahat Ali, a regular New York Times columnist and contributor to CNN, spun some vitriol on Twitter.

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

Norman Ornstein, a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, wrote, “Very sad. I love Kurt Suzuki as a player. But he wore a MAGA hat to the White House, so I will not cheer him. Not quite as bad for Ryan Zimmerman, but his praise for Trump is hard to take.”

Zimmerman, the outstanding first baseman who was instrumental in the Nats win, had committed the heinous crime of praising Trump for keeping the country safe and had presented the president with a team jersey.

Soledad O’Brien, a former CNN anchor, said simply: “Pathetic.”

Another wrote: “A lot of people are saying that Kurt Suzuki should be PERMANENTLY BANNED from major league baseball. I agree with them.”

But plenty of Twitterers came to Suzuki’s defense.

“Ironic the party who claims ‘love over hate’ is at it again showing their hatred by chastising people who don’t conform to their beliefs,” wrote Andrew Pollack.”Thank you ⁦@kurtsuzuki for not caving into communist bullies & showing love for our president and country!”

Jordan Schachtel summed it up best. “Kurt Suzuki is a 4thGen Japanese-American. His relatives were prob living in the USA when Democrat pres FDR ordered the mass internment of Japanese-Americans. FDR, to this day, is idol-worshipped by Dem Party. Can’t say I’m shocked he’s a MAGA guy,” he wrote.
