NYT: Trump was never invited to throw out the first pitch at Yankee stadium and was jealous of Fauci

WASHINGTON ó An hour before Dr. Anthony S. Fauci threw the first pitch at the season opener between the New York Yankees and the Washington Nationals, President Trump stood on the briefing room stage at the White House and declared that he, too, had been invited to throw out his own opening pitch.

ďRandy Levine is a great friend of mine from the Yankees,Ē Mr. Trump, referring to the president of the baseball team, told reporters on Thursday as Dr. Fauci was preparing to take the mound. ďAnd he asked me to throw out the first pitch, and I think Iím doing that on Aug. 15 at Yankee Stadium.Ē

There was one problem: Mr. Trump had not actually been invited on that day by the Yankees, according to one person with knowledge of Mr. Trumpís schedule. His announcement surprised both Yankees officials and the White House staff.

But Mr. Trump had been so annoyed by Dr. Fauciís turn in the limelight, an official familiar with his reaction said, that he had directed his aides to call Yankees officials and make good on a longtime standing offer from Mr. Levine to throw out an opening pitch. No date was ever finalized.

He was jealous of Fauci the minute Brad Pitt played him on SNL - it was way more than Fauci's medical credibility.

16. What a petty, jealous little man!

He is so envious of truly intelligent, accomplished people who didn't need daddy's help to get where they are in life.

And another thing that drives me up a wall is when he refers to everyone he knows as "A really great friend of mine", even when he's only met them only once or twice and they probably hate his guts. I don't think he has one real friend in the world or one relationship that isn't transactional.

He doesn't know the meaning of the word.

I didnít hear it discussed much on ESPN. There was absolutely no need for it other than for him to THINK he got the better of the situation - just the little monster Fred ruined him to be.

Fred Trump created this monster. He is incapable of changing at this point in his life. As the virus continues to spread and his failure gets bigger, the lies will soon take over everything. When he loses the election, it will be like nothing we have seen up to this point.

30. once again, if a democrat did this, their career would be *over*

for donnie, it just another ho-hum matter-of-fact story about a lie. the media covers it with a yawn. a story with no "legs".

but when they catch a democrat in anything they can even pretend to be a lie, they are relentless, keeping the story alive for the entire campaign or even long after it, running stories from every angle. how can they govern if they lie, how can anyone trust them, how can they negotiate with trading partners or with adversaries, etc. they did this with hillary, gore, even gary hart.

but donnie, seriously, all these derivative stories they run against democrats finally are blatantly relevant with donnie, but there isn't anything near the level of media interest in running those stories.

34. Trump is arguably the most powerful man in the world.


Yet, he has to lie because his fee fees got hurt, because somebody who works under him threw out a baseball.

There is absolutely nothing inside of Trump. There is no core to his being. He is just an empty, babbling meatsuit.

37. How embarrassing for him ...

In most instances, the minute any other president "accidentally" said he'd planned to throw out the first pitch on a date certain - you know, like if he somehow mistakenly thought he'd been asked (wink wink) - the team would be delighted and jump to make sure he got an invitation to throw out the first pitch on that date.

The fact that, even after Trump put them on the spot like he did, no invitation was forthcoming, and he had to "cancel" his appearance due to a "conflict," is very, very awkward ...
