Washington Nationals fans who gathered at Nationals Park Wednesday to watch a scoreboard TV broadcast of Game 7 had plenty to cheer about.
This time, of course, the president wasn’t there, the game wasn’t even there, and Trump still was met with derision when a 2020 campaign ad appeared during the Fox broadcast on the scoreboard TV, viewers noted.
Former NBA player Etan Thomas posted one of the longer snippets.
#Trump attempted to bounce back from the boo birds that showered him at his #WorldSeries appearance with a Game 7 campaign commercial at the viewing party at #Nats stadium and…..everyone booed again. He has to accept the fact that his approval rating in DC is just not very high pic.twitter.com/Qo2TJhQ20g

Kelyn Soong of Washington City Paper was among those who shared news of the negative response.

John Henry of WUSA 9 also posted video.
It sounds like at least one fan resurrected the “Lock him up!” cheer, as evidenced in this vignette.
Alex Sopko, a former White House staffer under President Barack Obama, kept score of the boos.
But the most important score of all was the Nationals’ 6-2 victory over the Houston Astros for the team’s first World Series championship.
