Former President Trump went to a World Series game over the weekend and was greeted warmly. Trump was seen doing the “Tomahawk Chop” with Melania during the game.
Trump released a statement that said: “Looking forward to being at the World Series in Atlanta tonight. Thank you to the Commissioner of Baseball Rob Manfred, and Randy Levine of the New York Yankees, for the invite. Melania and I are looking forward to a wonderful evening watching two great teams!”
But it was the fans sitting near him who went viral when they started the chant heard round the world. In the video below you can see Trump laughing and nodding his head to the chant that is sweeping the nation, “Let’s go Brandon.”
Hollywood star Rob Schneider took issue with all the Dems who of a sudden lost their sense of humor after relentlessly bashing Trump for four years.
Specifically, he was referring to all the people who lost their minds over a Southwest Airlines pilot saying “Let’s Go Brandon” over the intercom with Schneider saying “they have lost their souls.”
The pilot said: “We’re heading east at about 107 or 108 mph. Clear visibility, mostly clear skies, about 77 degrees. Thanks for coming out, flying Southwest Airlines, welcome home, and let’s go Brandon.”
Schneider said: “The authoritarians more angry at a Southwest Pilot for saying “Let’s go Brandon” then they are at a President that is pressuring States to fire; Police Officers, Fireman, Nurses and other First Responders who only a year ago were hailed as heroes, is proof they have lost their souls.”
An AP reporter Colleen Long broke the story. She wrote in the AP:
On Friday morning on a Southwest flight from Houston to Albuquerque, the pilot signed off his greeting over the public address system with the phrase, to audible gasps from some passengers.
Southwest said in a statement that the airline “takes pride in providing a welcoming, comfortable, and respectful environment” and that “behavior from any individual that is divisive or offensive is not condoned.”
Veteran GOP ad maker Jim Innocenzi had no qualms about the coded crudity, calling it “hilarious.”
“Unless you are living in a cave, you know what it means,” he said. “But it’s done with a little bit of a class. And if you object and are taking it too seriously, go away.”
