‘Veterans for Impeachment’ Banners Unwind at World Series

Banners urging Donald Trump’s impeachment were unwound by demonstrators during Game 5 of the World Series, after Trump arrived and was ridiculed by the crowd.

According to The Hill, two banners bearing the phrase “Veterans for impeachment” were unwound by fans in second and third row and caught by pitch cameras.

CPD Action tweeted a short video where the banners were showing, with the caption:

“WOW Right behind home plate #VeteransforImpeachment signs appear for Trump to see on the jumbotron #WorldSeries #NeedToImpeach.”

It wasn’t initially clear if Trump, who left the game around 10 p.m., had seen the banner on the stadium’s display board before departing. The White House did not immediately return a request for comment on the issue.

Trump arrived shortly after the game started Sunday evening accompanied by a number of House Republican leaders including Minority Whip Steve Scalise (La.) and Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (Calif.), but an announcement of his arrival at the stadium was met with a loud chorus of boos and chants of “lock him up” from detractors in the crowd.

Sunday’s game also began with a ceremonial first pitch from celebrity chef José Andrés, a vocal critic of Trump’s.
