Fox & Friends' Jillian Mele deliberately misled viewers in her description of Trump's reception at the World Series last night by leaving out the boos, the calls to “Lock him up!” and the large “Veterans for Impeachment” signs that only a propagandist could miss.
As BuzzFlash noted, Trump was probably expecting cheers when he appeared at the game given that the day “began with Trump taking credit for the assassination of ISIS terrorist al-Baghdadi, offering, in the morning, self-aggrandizing remarks with sensationalistic gruesome alleged details of the killing.”
Instead, The Washington Post reported, “When the president was announced on the public address system after the third inning as part of a tribute to veterans, the crowd roared into sustained booing — hitting almost 100 decibels.”

The boos were loud enough to hear on radio:

Then there were the “Lock him up” chants.
And the “Veterans for Impeachment” signs behind home plate:

Veterans like us swore to uphold the constitution, and we can’t stand by while Trump exploits military aid to try to get a foreign gov to interfere in our elections. pic.twitter.com/IsiLHFsXeb
See how Fox’s Mele described it this morning, below, via Media Matters’ Bobby Lewis.
Fox & Friends' Jillian Mele reports that Donald and Melania Trump "were greeted with mixed reaction" at Nationals Park, "but they were out there smiling, waving to everybody as you can see in the crowd." The thousands of boos are completely inaudible. pic.twitter.com/EBlRWi63ta— Bobby Lewis (@revrrlewis) October 28, 2019
