Twitter is flooded with hilarious memes by President Donald Trump after embracing MAGA-hating Washington Nationals catcher Kurt Suzuki in the White House.
The heart-warming moment of Trump and Suzuki on the Truman balcony has been compared to the famous statue of Leonardo DiCaprio with his arms around Kate Winslet on the Titanic's bow.
& # 39; Near, far, whereEEEEVVVVVEEEEERRR you are & # 39 ;, wrote bestselling author Jamie Ford, sharing an image of Trump and Suzuki alongside Jack and Rose of the 1997 romance hit.
Another meme compared Trump & # 39; s hands over the chest of the MLB star with Janet Jackson's iconic Rolling Stone cover, where two hands are placed suggestively over her bare breasts.
The Nationals were invited to the White House on Monday to celebrate their 4-3 World Series victory and Suzuki briefly took on a MAGA. & # 39; I didn't know that would happen, & # 39; said Trump in awe.

& # 39; America fell in love with Nats baseball, & # 39; the president said yesterday from the balcony as the fans stretched out on the South Lawn. & # 39; It's all they wanted to talk about – that and deposition. & # 39;
& # 39; I love Nats baseball much more, & # 39; said the president.
More than half of the team came to the celebration and Trump paid a lot of compliments for them.
He told Juan Soto & # 39; he has no hair problem & # 39 ;, and explained to Ryan Zimmerman, who has played the longest in the team, that he really loves the city.
Trump called the silly theme song of Nats & # 39; Baby Shark & # 39; also a & # 39; powerful song & # 39 ;. It was played by the military band when the team entered.
And then the song of & # 39; another four years & # 39; broke out after Stephen Strasburg had spoken, Trump intervened: & I'm going to consider that four more World Series wins will be won. & # 39;

On Wednesday, the Nats defeated the Houston Astros in Game 7 in Texas – winning all four away games, even when they dropped three at home – including one with the commander in chief present.
Their trip to the White House is the final award for a team that made a remarkable comeback after a bad start to their season. Trump also remembered that when he told the story of the team.
& # 39; I'm sure the media was with you all the time, & # 39; the president said sarcastically. & # 39; I remember some rough stories. & # 39;

& # 39; It seemed that it would be easy, right? & # 39; Said Trump. & # 39; And then something bad happened. As far as I know you lost three games … we won't talk about that. & # 39;
The Sunday match marked President Trump's first outing to Nationals Stadium, where he was loudly booed by fans – and subjected to chants from & # 39; Shut him up! & # 39; from the crowd. The song was inspired by what the supporters of the president often shouted about the Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton 2016.
Back in Houston for Game 6, the Nationals lost ground thanks to a controversial phone call. Nationals manager Dave Martinez threw such a tantrum that he was thrown out.
& # 39; We know how you feel, & # 39; Trump said grinning Monday when he brought up Game 6. & # 39; I personally found that a terrible call. & # 39;

Monday's White House team event was more friendly, with only one player – Sean Doolittle – publicly saying he was not going to protest before the meeting.
& # 39; There are many things, policies that I disagree with, but in the end it has more to do with the division and rhetoric and making conspiracy theories possible and widening the gap in this country, & # 39; Doolittle stated in an interview with the Washington Post. & # 39; My wife and I stand for inclusion and acceptance, and we have worked with refugees, people from the & # 39; shithole countries & # 39 ;, Doolittle added, pointing to comments Trump made behind closed doors in January 2018 about Haiti, El Salvador and African countries.
