Donald Trump and Melania Knauss singing the 7th inning stretch at Wrigley Field in 2000. Really.
Donald Trump and Melania Knauss singing the 7th inning stretch at Wrigley Field in 2000. Really.

HOLY SHIT YOU GUYS, THAT GAME LAST NIGHT! After giving everyone a heart attack for approximately one and one half hours after the Cleveland Indians tied it up in the 8th inning, the Chicago Cubbies came back in the 10th to break the 108-year curse and win the World Series! Now, we are a Cubs fan, and we know some of you are a Cleveland Indians fan, but we think we can agree that, regardless, that was some damn good baseball.

Now, if you were running for president, you’d probably see something historic like that — in a venue where there were literally no Hillary supporters or Trump supporters, just baseball fans — and at least get on Twitter and say “Good game, Chicago Cubs, I pat you on the bottom thrice!” Hillary Clinton is from Chicago and grew up a Cubs fan, so she obviously did:

hilltweet

Now, granted, she’s a REAL FAN. Hell, in the pictures of Hillz watching the game Wednesday night, that comes through loud and clear. She even had a “Fly the W!” banner, for god’s sake.

hillzcubs

But your current president, Barack Chicago William Ayers South Side Obama, is a MAJOR White Sox fan, and yet he still had the class to Say A Thing:

obamatweet

Nice! Unity! America! Baseball!

Donald Trump hasn’t said a fucking thing, though, perhaps only partly because he is a classless piece of trash. For someone as obsessed with Twitter as Trump is, you’d think he, a Mets fan, might have at least figured out a way to tweet congratulations at the Cubbies, all the while making it about himself. “Looks like the Cubs took my advice and played baseball big league. Guess they read Art Of The Deal!” Something like that. But no.

Salon reminds us of why he might be staying silent, and SURPRISE, it’s for petty, immature, tiny-handed, Trump-esque reasons. It goes back to the Republican primary, and the Ricketts family, who own the Cubs. They committed the dastardly sin of not supporting Trump in the primary, if you can believe that, donating $5.5 million to an anti-Trump super PAC.

Back in March, Trump had this to say about the Ricketts family and the Cubs, in an interview with the Washington Post‘s editorial board:

FRED HIATT: You said a few weeks ago after a family in Chicago gave some money to a PAC opposing you, you said, “They better watch out. They have a lot to hide.” What should they watch out for?

TRUMP: Look, they are spending vicious … I don’t even know these people. Those Ricketts. I actually said they ought to focus on the Chicago Cubs and, you know, stop playing around. They spent millions of dollars fighting me in Florida. And out of 68 counties, I won 66. I won by 20 points, almost 20 points. Against, everybody thought he was a popular sitting senator. I had $38 million dollars spent on me in Florida over a short period of time. $38 million. And, you know, the Ricketts, I don’t even know these people.

HIATT: So, what does it mean, “They better watch out”?

TRUMP: Well, it means that I’ll start spending on them. I’ll start taking ads telling them all what a rotten job they’re doing with the Chicago Cubs. I mean, they are spending on me. I mean, so am I allowed to say that? I’ll start doing ads about their baseball team. That it’s not properly run or that they haven’t done a good job in the brokerage business lately.

OOH, BIG THREATS, BIG MAN! Seriously, he is such an asshole.

Now what’s funny is that family patriarch Joe Ricketts is now running and has since donated a million ameros to a PRO-Trump super PAC (also funded by that dick Sheldon Adelson) called Future45, that’s targeting Latino voters for Trump. Indeed, the family has taken A LOT OF SHIT for its overt Trump support during the Cubs post-season. So shouldn’t all be forgiven?

Meh. It’s Trump. He’s a total pussy and he holds grudges forever. Fuckin’ Ricketts family still hasn’t given $5.5 million to elect him, have they?

So maybe he still hates the Ricketts family and the Cubs. Or maybe he’s superstitious and he heard this thing about how, most of the time, in election years, the home state of whichever team wins ends up voting for the winner of the presidential election. We all KNOW what Illinois is going to do.

Or maybe he’s just a tacky, uncouth pig whose mother and father didn’t teach him how to act right.

Hey, want to watch a video of Trump singing “Take Me Out To The Ball Game” at a Cubs game back in 2000? Guess that was back before they hurt his little feelings. Anyway, he really fucking sucks at singing:

In conclusion, fuck Donald Trump, BIG CONGRATS and sexxxy hugs to the Cubbies, and Cleveland fans, your time is coming, we promise.

  • Msgr_Bad_Hombre

    RE: Trump singing the national anthem. Just like Roseanne Barr, but with less pussy-grabbing.

  • BMW

    Paul Ryan probably didn’t congratulate the Cubs by name, but instead probably just referred to them as the “National League team playing in the World Series.”

  • lucidamente

    Trump is a Mets fan? Noooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!

    • Spotts1701, The Baddest Hombre

      Probably only because Steinbrenner dissed him.

    • Blackest Noobs

      you would think he would be more of a Yankees fan but probably has some petty beef with Steinbrenner.

      • Dr. Rrrrrobotnik

        I have zero difficulty seeing that. They probably just ended up in the same room and spent the rest of the day trying to talk over one another.

      • Oblios_Cap

        Maybe George Costanza said something bad about Trump when he was working for Steinbrenner.

    • Mr. Blobfish

      Dude fucks up everything, don’t he?

    • AnnieGetYerFun

      I don’t understand. The Yankees have all the money.

      I have heard all those statements in the wild.

  • Spotts1701, The Baddest Hombre

    Last night was surreal. Everyone on the thread was going bonkers about it, and I think I may have stopped breathing once or twice (and I’m a Diamondbacks/Mariners fan!)
    But the best thing was seeing my best friend, who’s been a Cubs fan his whole life, happy that his team finally hoisted the trophy. I already got him a “Cubs World Champions” t-shirt for Christmas.

    • Vincent Ricola

      My mom called me crying in happiness. It was the greatest.

  • Flywing

    The less Trump says about the Cubs’ win the better. I don’t want his orangina churro fingers typing the taint to what was an outstanding series, a well deserved win, and a team that’s gotten crapped on for 108 years.

  • AnnieGetYerFun

    Honestly, keeping his stupid mouth shut and his tiny fingers off of the Twitter are probably his two best moves right now. It’s actually probably killing him not to say anything awful about the Cubs.

    • Spotts1701, The Baddest Hombre

      It’s the only reason the gap is narrowing – he’s not being stupid in public. Or at least obviously stupid in public.

      • AnnieGetYerFun

        It might have been a landslide win if he had never given a speech or said anything in public after declaring his candidacy.

    • anwisok

      Quick! Lizzy needs to bait him, hard!

      • EXACTLY! She’s their secret weapon!!!

    • Dr. Rrrrrobotnik

      He quite literally said as much during a speech: http://www.politicususa.com/2016/11/02/unglued-trump-tells-front-entire-rally.html

      He’s probably been told a bazillion times since Monday to stay on message and say nothing, and he’s somehow managed to do it.

      • AnnieGetYerFun

        Shock collar. In his pants.

        • Dr. Rrrrrobotnik

          That or the chip in his brain briefly connected straight to his mouth hole.

  • Vincent Ricola

    Donald is still trying to figure out how the Cubs escaped the Chicago urban hellscape of gunfire and apocalypse to play a baseball game. That and Alex Jones told him the game was “as staged as the moon-landing.”

    • Beanz&Berryz

      Which it was…

    • cat cafe

      Yes, I actually think there is a nasty little streak of racism that is part of his refusal to say anything positive about Chicago.

    • A LITtle Annoyed, Yet ARoused

      The urban hellscape of Wrigleyville that those nasty gays have taken over.

  • Crystalclear12

    They probably have his phone locked up until after the election.

    • That’s why I really wish the Democratic Overlords would let Liz Warren start tweeting shit at Drumpf so his head explodes.

    • Blackest Noobs

      he probably is still tweeting, just they turned off his cell phone service….like making it go to a dead electronic mail office or something

      • Nastyinencinitas

        The ex was in a reggae band that had a guitarist who was a veteran of a punk band. The guy would crank up the distortion, turn the amp up to 11 and get really drunk. When he was good and drunk they turned his amp off and he never noticed. He was too busy “shredding.”

      • Crystalclear12

        Mel, the cyber isn’t working!

  • bubbuhh
  • Oblios_Cap

    Or maybe he’s just a tacky, uncouth pig whose mother and father didn’t teach him how to act right.

    Maybe. Or Momma tried and he ignored her.

    • bubbuhh

      Trump is a hybrid, combining the worst of both his parents.

  • Callyson

    Well, it means that I’ll start spending on them. I’ll start taking ads telling them all what a rotten job they’re doing with the Chicago Cubs.

    I didn’t think I could be even more happy for Cubs fans. I stand corrected.

  • The Deplorable Ms. MLG

    He looks like he’s getting ready to unhinge his jaw and swallow that microphone he’s hogging from Melania.

  • Callyson

    Anyway, he really fucking sucks at singing

    I’ll take your word for it. The less I have to listen to that asshole’s voice, the better FFS.

    • Bub the Bad Zombre

      He fucking sucks at everything. Why should singing be the exception?

      • Kiri the Nasty Unicorn

        You’d like to think that everyone has at least one redeeming characteristic…

        • Spotts1701, The Baddest Hombre

          Well, he is better at it than Ditka. Mike Ditka’s singing should be considered a war crime.

        • Bub the Bad Zombre

          I suppose he might make good shark chum, ground up (with votes) and allowed to ferment for a few days in an oil drum.

    • I actually covered my ears and said “Lalalalalala, I can’t hear you!” when I heard his voice on the radio today. Listening to him makes my skin crawl.

  • Blackest Noobs

    so yeah kinda weird he didn’t congratulate the Cubs….but he is a petty asshole.

    and the game definitely was NOT political…but in my head i was thinking Cubbies more liberal, Indians more conservative, but that just cuz of their cities/states..but it had zero bearing on the game itself….like it doesn’t means cuz the Cubs won, Hillary will definitely win…but god damn why can’t our political discourse be like this World Series….good sportsmanship all around with both teams ( like you even noticed it when players from opposing teams chit-chatted or gave a hand up when a guy was down)

    and i know the reason why our political discourse sucks….Donald Trump is the reason.

    • OneYieldRegular

      Not weird that he didn’t congratulate Chicago, since he’s been slamming the city since the beginning of this election season. On Tuesday, I expect Chicago to slam him right back, and bigly.

      • Blackest Noobs

        big league!

        side-note…do they still make big league chew?

        • Tacoclamgenda

        You’re goddam right we will! Hopefully lots and lots and lots of people are with us.

  • Nastyinencinitas

    I’m just so happy for Bill Murray. Oh, and those guys who played and that coach who is so nice.

    • cat cafe

      I, too, felt the same way watching the sportsball.

      • Nastyinencinitas

        I especially liked it when the sportsball player did the thing and made the point and won the sportsball game. I cried.

        • cat cafe

          He was so excited, too, because the sportsball team hadn’t sportsed all the way to the end of the sports competition thing, for a long time, they said!

          ps, this reminds me of years and years ago, I had moved to western Mass from California, and so necessarily became a Red Sox fan. Took a student to one of the games, and when the pitcher screwed up, and the fans booed him lustily, she turned, her eyes filling with tears, “The poor man!” Which is what Mr. Cat Cafe and I now say to each other whenever a multi-million-dollar sportsball player gets booed.

    • Villago Delenda Est

      I’m happy for Bob Newhart.

      • Nastyinencinitas

        Mmmk.

  • msanthropesmr

    Pffffft. Game was rigged.

    • Taco Treg

      Has Cleveland conceded?

      • Nastyinencinitas

        They’re thinking about it.

      • msanthropesmr

        Oh Cleveland can conceded a looong time ago.

  • whitroth

    I *knew* I should have started a business last week, and begun selling Really Sturdy Umbrella to Chicagoans. I mean, all those flying pigs, and none wearing diapers….

    And in spite of my utter disinterest in sportsball, they not only won, but this was a series and an ending that would have been worth watching. ever understood why anyone would be interested in seeing one team wipe the floor with another… but this wasn’t that; it was two really good teams fighting to the end… and overtime.

    Wonder if they tore the Sears Tower down by hand, celebrating.

  • Courser

    I wasn’t terribly interested in the World Series, but as a Cubs fan in my childhood (Rockford, IL) I was thrilled to death to see them win. There’s a new sports bar just up the street and I went to bed listening to the cheers. It’d get quiet and then more cheers. When the final HUGE cheer went up, I checked my phone. And I slept the sleep of angels (whatever that means. Slept good)

  • sbanthony

    I thought I was numb to the insanity coming form the Rep ticket, but something DT said yesterday has stunned me in a way I’m not sure I can articulate. It was deeply disturbing in a new and ugly level.

    At s rally yesterday DT said:

    “We’ve gotta be nice and cool, Nice and cool. All right? Stay on point, Donald. Stay on point. No sidetracks, Donald.”

    http://www.cbsnews.com/news/stay-on-point-donald-trump-said-at-his-last-rally-of-the-day/

      • sbanthony

        My gods, I think you’ve hit it. This is really does feel like the someone who is acting out an inner dialogue without the filter that keeps us sane.

        It also speaks to his handlers really trying to keep him in check for the next 5 days. And that is scary, because DT may not know he is unstable, but those around him sure do and are pulling out all the stops to get him elected.

    • kev

      sane people keep the internal monologue in their brains ‘internal’. idiots either blurt it out, or they think god is talking to them.

        So the Repub candidate for POTUS starts straight up talking to himself in the middle of a rally, reminding himself to keep “on point” and giving himself gentle encouragement.

        And everyone’s all, “Meh.” Perhaps if he mentions emails…

        It certainly says she’s a hell of a stronger candidate than anyone ever gave her credit for. No candidate since at least FDR has had as many people and organizations and countries arranged against him as she does.

      Hey, Cleveland DOES rock. When I lived in Pittsburgh I drove there many times for the sole purpose of rockin my Jukesgrrl butt off. Best Springsteen shows I’ve ever seen were NOT in New Jersey (and I’ve seen many there), but in Cleveland, the first city east of PA to embrace the great Jersey Shore Sound.

      • Paul Dietzel

        Cleveland’s WEST of PA; think that’s what you meant.

    … but we think we can agree that, regardless, that was some damn good baseball. …
    It was. We think of baseball as this leisurely, summer game and forget there are a series of incredibly tense playoffs that culminate in a Series that can go 7 games and extra innings and have great moments for each team. Each.
    (having been there; I do not expect it again in my lifetime, but to have it even once is fantastic)

    • Jen B_VA

      I am just super psyched that my prediction panned out :D
      I said it would go to 7 and the Cubs would take it in a nail biter because the cosmos says so.
      Now I am predicting Hillz AND Senate go blue because the conservative surge fails to show up as it did in 12. Also predict at least 25% of the current GOP rep seats will go D or I this year.
      Place your bets now, ladies and gents and unicorns.

    • Jukesgrrl

      It was, indeed, a great series with brilliant moments for both teams. Cleveland players and the great Terry Francona should hold their heads high. The outcome could have gone either way. Now please, Chicago, stop with the curse nonsense.

      • Spotts1701, The Baddest Hombre

        Jason Kipnis, Cleveland’s second baseman, had some good words to say:

        “All we did was put our noses to the ground and kept fighting. We took a very good ballclub to extra innings of Game 7 of the World Series, so I don’t think I’ll be hanging my head for too long. I’m very proud of what we’ve done.”

    • Rags

      Best WS game evah?

      • Pierre_de_Fermat

        My team is the Braves and their worst-to-first run in 1991 ended with a loss in the 7th game to the Twins. But it was exciting the whole time; Braves were in the NL-West at the time, so played a lot of games on the west coast the last few weeks. People stayed up to watch and the Atlanta Constitution kept a block open for the late scores.

        • Rags

          I was a twins fan in 91. My favorite memory is of the decoy at second by knoblach that saved the seventh game. Sorry to bring up a sad memory for you……….not!

    Trump just announced he is not conceding the outcome of the World
    Series. His campaign manager Kellyanne Conway clarified that he meant
    he would demand a recount of the runs scored by Latin and black players
    in Cleveland and Chicago. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f50f283f37af0c9a7b7399a141c2160ba34e8f5089ad42d94acd69d60935e322.jpg

  • Professor Fate

    The most depressing part of this story was finding out Trump is a Mets fan. I root for the Mets – I am depressed that we have some thing in common other than being bipedal apes.

    • Latverian Diplomat

      Cheer up, a lot of the Mets’ fans are terrible people, but Yankees fans are even worse. :-)

      • Professor Fate

        Well for some they can’t help it the poor dears they were raised by Yankee fans – and my sister married a Yankee fan – who aside from this crippling character flaw is an okay guy. Still in some circles this is considered a mixed marriage.

        • Latverian Diplomat

          My understanding is that a lot of the Mets fans are from families that used to root for the Giants, and could never bring themselves to root for Yankees.

          • Tacoclamgenda

            True this.

          • BeachBum

            Dodger fans too. Mets : Giants Orange and Dodger Blue.

          • Professor Fate

            Well my parents were both from Brooklyn and as such the Yankees are the enemies of my blood. If I ever rooted for the Yankees they would both rise from their graves and we would have just bury them again (hat tip Groucho Marx).
            Lot of ex-Dodger fans in the Met’s fans gene pool as well as their leaving left a really really bad taste in everybody’s mouth.

        • Villago Delenda Est

          A TRUE mixed marriage is a Cubs fan and a White Sox fan.

          • FlownOver

            This combination is not known to exist.

          • Professor Fate

            This is true – My brother remembers years ago on a cross country trip when he and our cousin were in Chicago and were hanging out at a bar watching a Cubs game, and it came as something of shock to them when folks at the bar cheered when the Cubs fell behind. He asked bartender what was up ‘this is a White Sox bar” he was told.

      • theblackdog

        The worst fans I dealt with were Mets fans. They were the rudest and nastiest people in the stands when I visited Shea stadium back in 2008.

    • Bitter Scribe

      OTOH, I started rooting for the Cubs in 1969 and consequently HATE the Mets. This just adds to my disdain for Trump.

      (Although when my sister lived in NYC in the early ’90s, when the Mets sucked and there wasn’t much demand for tickets, she discovered that if you slipped an usher $10 or so, he would show you to a box seat on the first base line that was not being occupied by whatever big corporation had season tickets for it. Spent a couple of very pleasant afternoons at Shea that way.)

  • Bitter Scribe

    As a lifelong Cubs fan, let me say that the fact that Trump did not tweet congratulations matters to me means less than a rat’s ass.

  • cmd

    I refuse to watch that. But yeah, that’s what I want my president spending time doing, taking out ads against a baseball team.

    For the history nerds out there, one of the guys at lawyersgunsmoneyblog wrote a seven part series of posts on all the imperial houses that were in power ruling big empires back in 1908, the last time the Cubs won the series.

    F**k Trump. I’ll bet even Indians fans were happy for the Cubs last night. It was possibly the best World Series Game ever! How the hell can anyone want to kick Winnie the Pooh when he finally gets all the honey? Seriously?

    • SeeTrain65

      I tweeted my sincere congrats to the Cubs and their fans last night between jokes about how Cleveland sports fandom is an annual exercise in negative reinforcement.

      For me it wasn’t seeing Bill Murray celebrating, although that was awesome AF. It was Bob Newhart holding up his “W” flag. He’s reason #1 I don’t feel so awful about a Cleveland baseball team FAILING AGAIN.

      • H0mer0

        The look on Hillz’ face in the first pic look a little pained, as if doing a Jeebus impression. It’s nice to see her cheering with abandon since the self control she has displayed publicly in the campaign has been monumental.

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

      This was like Charlie Brown finally getting to kick the football.

    • clairence

      It really was one of the best baseball games I’ve watched – with the stakes so high and neither team backing down.
      Plus, now I’ve enjoyed watching the Cubbies win it all. I can still hear Harry Caray saying, “Holy cow!”

    • Saxo the Grammarian

      Game 7 of the 1991 World Series, Twins 1, Braves 0, Jack Morris pitched 10 complete shut-out innings, GTFO. :-)

      That being said, the Cubs and the Indians played a whale of a game last night and players from both teams can hold their heads high.

      • Henry B.

        What he said.

        • Nasty_ahughes798_woman

          For me it’s the Cincinnati Reds in the ’70’s. Their ’75 and ’76 teams were arguably the best to ever play the game. I live in Cub country, but I’ll always be a Reds fan. Congrats, Chicago Cubs! 107 more years ’til the next one!

  • Paperless Tiger

    Who told Trump he was mainstream? They have a lot to answer for.

  • Charles Wolf

    From the latest episode of the TV show Chance:
    (aside)
    Frontotemporal dementia is a degenerative brain disorder
    that affects the nerves and blood vessels of the frontal lobe.
    Someone with this condition will experience dramatic changes in their behavior…
    Socially inappropriate actions.

      His brain is broke. Of course Reagan ran the country with Alzheimers, so there’s that!

      The frontal lobe also helps with motivation. He is quite motivated to continue this dumpsta fire of a campaign so “that runs rings around your theory!”*

        I’m not a linguist and I always got Bs in Rhetoric in college but that article kind of clarified the appeal of Trump, Palin and Reagan and their word salads to the “educationally challenged.” (I was trying to find a good description of their followers, but that was the best I could come up with this time of morning.)

    “I’ll start doing ads about their baseball team. ”

    There’s a guy who has his priorities straight. He’s in a primary race, has momentum, but decides to take the time to spend his money attacking a another candidate’s donor even after the donor didn’t make a dent. I swear to God, if he becomes president, he’d lose focus in a negotiation over nuclear treaties to tweet insults at Cher.

    As wonkeratti of old know, I spend election day working at a church dinner to keep the closest thing this town has for a shelter for the town’s few liberals is to keep the town’s United Methodist church doors open. I live amongst Southern Baptists and have to deal with the galling sight of our parking lot empty when theirs’ is full.

    This is because I am a Hillary Clinton Methodist. And this is what we do. This is opposed to the Baptist and Pentecostal dipshits’ idea of Xianity.
