Dems get spanked at annual Congressional Baseball Game: ‘November is going to be worse’

Democrats got trounced at Thursday’s annual Congressional Baseball Game at Nationals Park, losing 10-0 to the Republican team — a loss that may very well reflect the outcome of midterm elections given that pundits widely expect Democrats to take a shellacking.

At least, that’s what the GOP believes, tweeting after the game: “And November is going to be worse.”

Roberto Clemente Jr., son of MLB Hall of Famer Roberto Clemente, threw out the ceremonial first pitch to get the charity game underway after Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff yelled “play ball,” with this year’s contest raising more than $1.7 million following a record high number of ticket sales and donations, according to The Hill.

U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.), who was seriously injured when shot by a Bernie Sanders supporter at a practice ahead of the 2017 Congressional Baseball Game, opened the ballgame at the plate, with U.S. Rep. Pete Aguilar (D-Calif.) on the pitcher’s mound for the Democrats.

Radical left climate alarmists who threatened to “shut the whole thing down” showed up at the ballpark. Capitol Police stepped up security after ShutDownDC made an online appeal for climate crazies to turn out to push for climate change legislation.

“We disrupted Brett Kavanaugh’s steak dinner and we will disrupt the Congressional Baseball Game. The monsters tearing apart our country deserve no peace,” read a previous tweet from the group.

There were at least three arrests for unlawful entry after the activists blocked one of the park entrances, The Hill reported, noting that Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) finally relented and reached a deal with Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Wednesday to spend a massive amount of money — $369 billion — to “combat” climate change.

Fittingly, given the rancor in our politics today, U.S. Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-Calif.) flipped off the Republican bench after drawing a walk and getting pulled for a pinch-runner.

Not exactly  a good example to set considering the charity game was in support of the Boys and Girls Club of DC.
