Mets pose for photo with Donald Trump, Jr, sending some fans into a tizzy

Mets pose for photo with Donald Trump, Jr, sending some fans into a tizzy

Late Friday, the Mets did a little team bonding. This is nothing new during Spring Training, and certainly not surprising now that a new skipper is in town. Camp is a time when most of these guys are just meeting each other, and little outings like this help break the ice a bit. Most dudes love fishing, so this makes a whole lot of sense. Shark fishing it is. 

What got some Mets fans' blood boiling was that, while on the beach, the team happened to run in to Donald Trump, Jr. Phillip Evans snapped a photo for his Instagram story (it's since been deleted), and the NY Daily News shot off a post. 

METS HANG OUT WITH WITH DONALD TRUMP JR. was the headline. For click bait purposes, of course. If I "hung out" with everyone I ever took a photo with, I'd be a very popular dude. The Mets were fishing, Trump, Jr happened to be there, and that should pretty much be the end of it. "Hanging out" seems to be a stretch.

Of course this is the internet age where people need to have an opinion on everything. Maybe it was just heat of the moment? Maybe, but for me, I felt like some went a little overboard. 

Just a hunch, but this kid isn't giving away his Mets gear, arms will not be sacrificed, and Callaway isn't going to be fired.

I do get it. A lot of people hate Trump. Times are crazy, and strong views are held by much of the population. To each their own, for sure. But if you let politics dictate who you cheer for, watch in the movies, talk to in a bar, or God forbid, who you allow yourself to randomly run into on a beach while fishing, you're going to be disappointed, and probably live a very isolated life. Just my two cents.
