Yesterday, the Tampa Bay Rays were bludgeoned at home by the Baltimore Orioles, but there was at least one thing worth cheering about at Tropicana Field.
As you can see in the video below, a planned “Trump Won” flag drop was interrupted after security and fans stopped these two doofuses (or is it doofi?) from pulling it off. Notice the resounding applause after the flag was wadded up into a little ball and carted off, presumably to a trash can.
For the unfamiliar, these types of flag drops are the new “resistance” for people who wrap their entire identities around a guy who suffered a historic election loss, two impeachments, multiple bankruptcies, and now mounting legal setbacks.
But this particular flag drop was seemingly planned by members of the local Tampa Bay group, Community Patriots, which posted multiple videos of the incident. In one video (which we won’t link to because these guys are just gigantic chuds) a member of the group records himself getting turned away at the gates after Tropicana Field security finds one of the flags. The “patriot” then threatens to sue, but ultimately decides to leave after telling a cop, “I’m on your side.”
In a follow-up post, the group then claims victory after a few of the members got in anyway, and posted a screenshot of the flag drop.
“That is a clear case of discrimination,” wrote the group. “And they bought tickets. You took their money! That’s theft too! Get ready for the biggest pain in the butt lawsuit you’ve ever had to deal with !!!! You will have to spend lots of money just to make it go away. And for what? The flag was dropped anyway!!!!
Obviously, it’s sort of weird they didn’t post the whole video. Nevertheless, here it is…
