Opinion/Satire| Mark Sidney| Oh, no! It looks like the “Trump Curse” may be back!
If you recall, many athletes who publicly trash our President, end up not performing up to par when the spotlight is on them.
Urban Dictionary explains (no fact checkers, we are not suggesting Urban Dictionary is a solid source, but it is funny as all heck!)
“The “Trump Curse” is a theory that anyone who says or does negative towards Donald Trump will be cursed with bad luck or negative karma.
The origin of the Trump Curse is a mystery, but it is speculated that the mass hexes being carried out around the world are actually backfiring and hexing those who oppose Trump.
P1: Did you hear about the idiot who shot himself in the face while taking a selfie?
P2: Yeah, he was posting anti-Trump sh*t.
Alleged “victims’ of the curse have included, but are not limited to Olympic skier, Lindsey Vonn, who ‘got out in front of skis’, (see what I did there ;)?) and talked a mountain of s*** about Mr. Trump, then went on to underwhelm in her competitions. Ms Vonn became a darling of the left while she was going around the international community trying to embarrass our President. Vonn later ended up getting hurt. We hope she has made a full recovery, not just physically, but mentally/politically too 😉
I bet you saw the clip of President Trump getting booed at the National’s game during the World Series this weekend. If not:
Some are saying the audio is not genuine, but I’ll take the media at their word on this one. I mean, crap, what a shocker that there are people who live in the swamp, the one Trump is draining, who voted 92.8% for Kleptocratic hall of fame member, hell, chairwoman, Hillary Clinton, that do not like President Trump.
I think it would be interesting to see what would happen if Trump went to a game somewhere around here:
The Washington Nationals lost their third game in a row during their World Series against the Houston Astros this past weekend. The losses came after the Nats won the first two games of the World Classic, IN HOUSTON.
Growing up, my hockey coach always used to say that, ‘a 2 goal lead is the worst lead in hockey.’ His point being, when you get ahead there is the temptation to pump the breaks and play defensively, which is what losers do.
Both hockey and life, are both similar to being in a fist fight, either you are busy punching, or you are busy getting punched, pick one (I suggest you start punching as it sure beats getting your ass kicked.)
I was not in the National’s locker room but I would be dollars to donuts that the team was already talking about how they would celebrate their World Series win and began resting on their laurels. Since those two wins, they have only scores a single run in each game.
Following the two wins IN HOUSTON, the Nats were headed back to Washington for 3 games at home. All they had to do was win 2 of those games and they would be the World champions, and be able to celebrate the victory at home.
By the way, it was not just the mistreatment of President Trump when he was announced at the game. The Nationals have been showing symptoms of TDS for sometime now. For instance, I am unsure who made this call, if it was the Nats or MLB itself, but, in what appears to be an effort to rub it in Trump’s face, the had anti-Trumper chef Jose Andres throw out the first pitch of the game. I never heard of him to be honest. It felt pretty desperate and low in my view and oh so classy guys, real classy.
The Nationals have announced that humanitarian and Trump critic José Andrés will throw out the first pitch ahead of World Series Game 5 on Sunday, should the series extend that long. On Thursday, Trump announced that he planned to attend Game 5. https://t.co/eAT7Kx93Ur

Confirmed by @Nationals: Trump not scheduled to throw out the first pitch if there's a Game 5 of the World Series. Instead, he'll watch @chefjoseandres — a critic who pulled out of Trump's DC hotel — throw the ceremonial pitch

This from Trump on why he likely won't throw out the first pitch at Game 5 of the World Series, which he plans to attend:
“I don’t know. They gotta dress me up in a lot of heavy armor. I’ll look too heavy. I don’t like that."

A report was soon released explaining that team owners were against sitting beside the President. So it’s not just the boo’s and the chants, it looks like, at least the decision makers over at the Nats operation, are not merely not fans of Trump, they are willing to go out of their way to try to hurt our POTUS.

More from the Washington Post:
So, is there a ‘Trump Curse?’ No one will ever know, but it sure is fun to speculate about. I’m sure we will take heat for even joking about this, but if we were to talk about the ‘Curse of The Great Bambino,’ no one would say jack … It’s called Trump Derangement Syndrome, and there is a cure for it, take the red pill.
Because of how Orwellian a society we live, I feel if I do not say this I could get ‘dinged’ by a ‘fact checker.’ I do not think nor am I representing ‘The Trump Curse” to be a real thing. We are having fun. Lighten up Pointer Institute, laugh a little.
