This Saturday, President Donald Trump and first Lady Melania Trump attended a football match at the Bryant-Denny Stadium in Alabama.
The people gathered to watch the game were surprised and pleased to see the President and first lady in suite at 50 yard line behind LSU bench.
President Trump was greeted with loud chants and cheers of “USA! USA!” at Saturday’s college football game between the Alabama Crimson Tide and LSU Tigers.
Clay Travis, Fox Sports Radio host reported “cheers and chants” of USA as the presidential couple first appeared in the box before the game.
President Trump’s introduction to the crowd occurred during a CBS network commercial break, but the aftermath was caught when live programming returned. Alabama beat reporter Mike Rodak tweeted the reaction.
One of the biggest showdowns of the year to date pits the number three ranked Crimson Tide against the number two ranked Tigers. Alabama is ranked number one in the Coaches poll and LSU sits at the top of the AP poll.
The President’s attendance at two other recent sport events was greeted with mixed reactions. Crowds booed and heckled President Trump last month at the World Series game five in Washington, D.C., while a mix of boos and cheers greeted the President at a UFC match in New York City last weekend.
The President’s potential attendance made the news early this week, and he is actually the first U.S. president to ever attend the annual Alabama-LSU game. President Trump also attended the 2017 national championship game between SEC rivals Georgia and Alabama, as The Daily Caller reported.
