Not even one week after Donald Trump was booed by spectators at Game 5 of the World Series in Washington D.C., he took a little journey to New York’s Madison Square Garden, where he was booed once more. Trump, who has been a fan and supporter of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) for a long time, appeared at the MMA match with his sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, as well as House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Republican Reps. Peter King and Mark Meadows.


Trump waved and gave a thumbs up to the crowd, reports The New York Times.

Here are some clips of the moment, which have gone viral on Twitter. And of course, some commentary from the Trumps.

Protesters also convened outside of the arena:

Donald Trump Jr. took to Twitter to try and write-off the jeering videos. He also made an interesting jab at “blue checkmark” Twitter (referring to verified Twitter accounts) though he does, indeed, have a blue checkmark himself:

Eric Trump also went to bat for his dad, and brought out a little hashtag Fake News:

And what did Trump himself have to say? Like son, like father, in this case:

He also compared entering MSG to entering one of his rallies:

And, for memory’s sake, Trump being booed at Nationals Park:
