Crowd At Madison Square Garden Goes Wild As President Trump Enters UFC Fight; CNN Says It Was Negative

I’ve listened to and watched the videos of this and the response to me sounds like they were cheering Trump. But CNN and the rest of the lying media claim that Trump was roundly booed. I guess you’ll have to decide for yourself. In my estimation, President Trump received massive applause from a Manhattan crowd as he entered Madison Square Garden in New York City on Saturday night to watch the UFC 244. Trump arrived at the legendary venue at approximately 9:00 p.m. along with his family and high-ranking members of Congress.

The New York Post reported that even though there was a small gaggle of anti-Trump protesters outside the venue and a few fans that booed Trump on the way into the arena, “there were twice as many fans happy to see the Commander in Chief.” A video posted by MMA fighter Tara LaRosa appears to confirm this, as it shows fans mostly cheering Trump as he walked in to watch the sporting event. Many were chanting Trump’s name as well.

From TheBlaze:

“The Post reported that Trump traveled to New York to watch the fighter Derrick Lewis take on Blagoy Ivanov with House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy and Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and arrived at John F. Kennedy Airport shortly after 8:00 p.m. The entourage arrived at Madison Square Garden about an hour later after taking the Marine One helicopter to a heliport in lower Manhattan. The president and his entourage then went by motorcade to the arena located in midtown Manhattan. He was also accompanied by his sons, Eric and Donald Trump Jr.

“Media Spin?

“Despite the warm reception seen on video, several media outlets are portraying the crowd’s reaction as negative. A CBS News headline reads “Trump booed at UFC event in New York City.”

“Meanwhile, CNN said “Trump met with loud boos, some cheers, at UFC fight in New York.”

“Over at The Hill, a headline reads “Trump gets deluge of boos upon entering MSG prior to UFC 244.” Adding, “President Trump was welcomed into Madison Square Garden Saturday night with heavy booing from the crowd.”

“Counterpunch Donny

“Reacting to the negative media reports, Donald Trump Jr. counterpunched on Twitter late Saturday night, calling the reception “overwhelmingly positive” and blasting media critics of the president as “leftist hacks.” Similarly, UFC President Dana White called it “the most electrifying entrance” he’s seen in 25 years.

“Lewis went on to win the fight and praised President Trump in his remarks. “Shout out to that boy Donald Trump,” said the fighter in the Octagon after picking up the win. “I know everything ain’t going so good in the White House, but you gotta turn that s*** around in 2020.”‘

Trump and his family were at the event for the main attraction, the fight for the title of “BMF” (“Baddest Motherf**ker”), between Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz. The match ended abruptly in favor of Masvidal on a technical knockout after the third round, when a doctor called it off over a gash that opened over Diaz’s right eye.

“No matter what your views are on Trump as a president, the guy’s a bad mother f*ucker, man,” Masvidal said earlier in the week. “The money that he’s made, the obstacles that he’s conquered — he’s a bad mother f*cker in his own way, you know, no matter what your political views are.”

Trump and his family are long-standing UFC fans and thoroughly enjoyed the outing. Donald Trump, Jr. and Eric Trump both watched Colby Covington — a proud Trump supporter — win a fight in August. Other Republicans joined Trump at the fight, including House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Rep. Pete King (R-NY).

“Trump stood up in his seat in the VIP section and waved to a crowd that mostly cheered — though there were also plenty of ‘boos’ and the occasional raised middle finger as well,” The New York Post wrote.

From The Daily Wire:

“The Hill pointed out that Trump was booed when he attended the World Series in Washington. “When Trump was recognized on the jumbotron, he was met with loud rejection and instead of cheers,” the publication wrote, apparently forgetting the word “boos.”

“But boos in New York — the most liberal city in the country — and Washington, D.C., where just 6% of registered voters are Republican, are not necessarily surprising, either.

“And Trump Jr. said the cheers outweighed the boos.

“Fake News gonna fake. Why don’t you play the video you leftist hacks? I was there in the heart of NYC and it was overwhelmingly positive. An awesome response. It’s nice that everyone at least sees that you’ve flat out stopped even pretending to be objective,” Trump Jr. wrote.”

The media is just making Americans hate them more and more and more. They are actually helping Trump get elected to a second term. Thanks, guys!

These hacks pounced on Trump’s entrance at the event but didn’t even bother to look around them. They are in for a huge surprise in 2020… you might even call it a looming ‘knockout’ by Trump.
