I would support the Trump clan not going to jail for crimes, but their punishment being for them to only be able to reside in cities where he received >60% of the vote.

Looks like it’s starting. Trump can’t even go to sporting events anymore, including UFC fights, without getting booed.

Getting booed by UFC and NASCAR crowds is probably the only thing that could actually make him feel bad.

I may be stereotyping, but I assumed UFC fans would be hard-core Trumpists.

You are. UFC fans are overwhelmingly under 50, and hard-core Trumpists are even more overwhelmingly over 50. So, there's not much demographic overlap.

What would it take for the opposition to snatch up most of the tickets for a Trump rally and then start chanting "Lock him up!"?

I would like to participate in such a prank.

Demographic by age, but culturally? Are UFC fans more likely to follow Katie Couric or Rush Limbaugh?

If they're under 45, they're most like to ask why they'd follow either one of those people, since they're both Boomer bait with some, limited, Gen-X crossover (that's decreasing with every passing minute).

The opposition would need to start hanging out in trailer parks and big box Evangelical churches. Not worth it.

What's the overlap between UFC and WWE? WWE would probably be the Trumpest of the mass public entertainment events, being fundamentally a reality TV show, and one at which Trump has a history of joining the performance.

If this happens at a WWE event, that's the end.

I have no problem with Trump attending an event that involves beating the shit out of someone. By all means, send him to more UFC events.

But WWE is fake. I want actual blood.

WWE is scripted, but the blood is real.

I mean, a guy performed with a broken back rather than reveal to fans that good guys and heels were friends outside the ring.

They played War Pigs for his entrance. Whoever made that decision deserves a medal.
When Trump stepped into the Garden floor, shortly before the beginning of the 10 p.m. main card, he was met with some undeniable boos, but also, some cheering, which—mixed with a sound system loudly blasting licks of AC/DC’s “Back in Black,” then Black Sabbath’s “War Pigs” (someone is going to get a talking-to)—made the whole thing feel frantic, less like the arrival of a Head of State, and more like a disputed heavyweight rumbling into battle.

A friend of a friend was big in the College Republicans at USC* when Dan Quayle, at the peak of his "potatoe" this-guy-is-a-buffoonish-airhead troubles in the 1992 campaign, made a campaign stop there. The friend-of-a-friend had a CD of Souza marches, because of course a College Republican would have a CD of Souza marches, which they decided to use as the ambient music prior to Quayle's speech. Being very familiar with the CD, he knew its track order, and it was finishing one march as Quayle prepared to walk out to greet the audience. The CD's owner panicked and said, "You have to skip the next track!" but the guy was all, "Oh no this is a great American march!" and so it was that Dan Quayle came onstage to the "Liberty Bell March".

His quest to find a sporting event where he won’t get booed is getting hilarious. Now he’s headed to the LSU-Bama game. I hope he gets booed again and his next sporting event is some West Texas rodeo.

I kind of want to pay for a billboard near the game and put up stuff Trump said about Jeff Sessions' accent and alma mater.

If Trump wants cheers at the Bama game, maybe he should dress as a black cat and run out on the field.

Given how much he apparently avoids having lunch with his supporters, that would be a punishment indeed!
