Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump attended World Series Game 5 in Washington Sunday night, accompanied by a dozen Republican lawmakers and several wounded warriors.

But there was one person conspicuously absent… Barron Trump.

The president’s motorcade arrived at Nationals Park around 8 p.m., as the national anthem was being sung. Mr. Trump and his entourage took their seats in a suite in the second level of the stadium, with the president waving to some fans below.

During a “Salute to the Troops,” some in the stadium applauded and cheered for the Trumps as their presence was announced. A chorus of boos also could be heard, as well as some spectators chanting “lock him up.”

Among the Republican lawmakers with him were Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Sen. David Perdue of Georgia, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California, House Minority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana, and Reps. Mark Meadows of North Carolina, Matt Gaetz of Florida, Andy Biggs of Arizona and Liz Cheney of Wyoming.

It was the president’s first appearance at a major-league game since being elected. Trump said earlier he probably wouldn’t throw out a ceremonial first pitch due to the required body armor under his jacket that would be too bulky.

Once the game hit the third inning, it was rather obvious why Trump didn’t want to throw out the first pitch…he was booed.

According to multiple reporters at the scene, the audience erupted into boos when the group appeared on the Jumbotron. Some members of the crowd then began a brief “lock him up” chant, an echo of the popular “lock her up” chant directed at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that can often be heard at Trump’s rallies.

But one question kept being asked…why was Trump’s 13-year-old son Barron not there? I mean, attending the World Series is every boy’s dream, right?
