President Trump will attend the Army-Navy game Saturday in Philadelphia

Source: Washington Post

President Trump will travel to Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field on Saturday to attend the Army-Navy game for the second year in a row.

Saturday’s meeting, the 120th installment of the storied rivalry, will be the third time Trump has attended the annual game. Last year, he was the first sitting president in seven years to attend Army-Navy; he also attended the 2016 matchup in Baltimore as president-elect.

Trump is the 10th sitting president to attend the game, a tradition Theodore Roosevelt started in 1901. As is custom, Trump is expected to sit on the Army side of the stadium for one half and the Navy side for the other.

It remains unclear whether Trump will officiate the coin toss, as he did last year.

1. As a navy vet, I hope he stays on the army side.

Perfect place for him to attend a sporting event. The crowd would get face disciplinary action if they booed him

3. I just hope the academies don't go "soviet / North Korea" on the cadets/midshipmen:

"The first to stop clapping and cheering our dear leader gets shot!"

(go Army! - from an army vet)

30. Depends

Philly is racist as fuck and quite a few neighborhoods will happily display Trump 2020 yards signs in the coming election.

I would LOVE to see my town give him a nice hostile greeting, but I don't have much faith, especially for that game.

5. Gee, I wonder who his

"guests" will be? Who performed best at the impeachment hearings? Oh, Gaetz, Collins and Gym Jordan. Plus the first (naked) lady has to be there, so tRump can claim it is disgraceful for people to boo her. Gotta hand it to him, he does not believe that he is unwelcome ANYWHERE. Of course, all military members will be briefed ahead of time - no booing, only cheers for the orange blob of waste material.

6. When I hear or see him now I picture him as ...

...cousin Eddy in the "Vacation" movies, especially after his shxtter issues from not knowing how to flush his toilet. He's just using this for more pr and redirection as he may not now be able to play golf because of his failing health.

14. I wonder if all the flushing is

Maleria getting rid of any actual food she just consumed? If she has bulimia or another condition, she would constantly throw up anything she ate, before an extra pound appeared on her body. Of course when Ivanka is there too, the flushing really gets bad.

7. "Look at all the people who came to see ME!!"

FOXNews: "Amazing turnout at rally for Donald Trump as he accepts the position of America's God Emperor for Life!"

It remains unclear whether Trump will officiate the coin toss, as he did last year.

10. He's going because he won't get booed

He is also holding a rally in Hershey.

He must really be scared over being impeached. He needs support and adoration from his base. At least 2 of the major networks have stopped carrying his rallies. It was disgusting the coverage of his hate fests he got in 2016.

22. On the heels of impeachment, all he'll see and hear is applause.

The pressure to respect the Commander in Chief is real and will silence all dissent. There will be no booing at this event. Hearing him be applauded is disgusting!

Go Army! Beat Navy!

Maybe Trump can tell 'em about the good deal he just cut for Kim & North Korea?

26. Suggestion for the service men and women:

While you may not be permitted to boo, you can always remain silent. Let the civilians in the stadium boo, and let their noise be loud and clear.

31. You can't tell in some neighborhoods

The city has a racism problem. There were more than a few neighborhoods that were full of Trump signs in 2016 and will look the same in 2020. Plenty of Trump flags and Confederate flags fly here. Philly is a blue city, but it's fairly divided.

28. Sit on the Army side of the stadium for one half and the Navy side for the other. So he'll be ...

booed by one side for a half and by the other side the next half. And by both sides coming and going.

He may have some friends Army, but he's not popular with any Navy I know of.

32. The first draft dodging C.I.C.

is going to a game where real warriors will pack the stands? I wonder if he'll bring along his "participation" trophy from his prep-school bowling squad, just to show off?

Of course everyone in the stands will be forbidden to boo the son-of-a-bitch. Could you pick a more safe place to plant your fat ass this weekend, Donnie?
