President Trump attended Game Five of the World Series at Nationals Park and he was not well received by fans.
Trump arrived at the game at 8 PM, nine minutes after rival José Andrés threw out the ceremonial first pitch. He sat in the “Washington suite” with the first lady, Melania Trump, and other Republican allies.
After the third inning concluded, President Trump was announced to the crowd. He was loudly booed.

Later in the game, Nationals fans started a loud “lock him up” chant. It was captured in a video by NBC News’ Monica Alba on Twitter.

The mocking chant was a nod to Trump’s supporters chanting lock her up in regards to Hillary Clinton in 2016.
Democrats in the House of Representatives are currently engaged in an impeachment inquiry after President Trump tried to pressure the Ukrainian President in an apparent quid pro quo to investigate Joe Biden and his son Hunter. Robert Mueller, earlier in the year, also documented 10 possible instances of President Trump commiting obstruction of justice during the Russia Investigation.
Later in the game, fans unveiled an Impeach Trump sign in right field.

There was also a “Veterans For Impeachment” sign held up behind home plate. It was captured on the national telecast on FOX.

Trump is a historically unpopular president, which is magnified even more in the DC area where Maryland, Northern Virginia, and Washington DC lean heavily Democratic. Support for impeachment and removal from office countrywide is at or above 50 percent in polls.
