Leftists on social media blew a collective fuse after Washington Nationals catcher Kurt Suzuki donned a MAGA hat during the White House’s welcoming ceremony for the World Series champions.

Suzuki, prior to speaking at the ceremony, put on a MAGA hat, prompting an embrace from President Donald Trump:

The catcher’s display of support for the president drew anger and feelings of betrayal from leftists on Twitter, some of whom suggested that he be canceled out or “banned from baseball” altogether.

“Putting on a ‘MAGA’ hat is a form of racist hate speech and an implicit threat of violence,” the leftist blog Palmer Report tweeted. “Kurt Suzuki should be banned from baseball. If you don’t like this tweet, fuck you”:

If he wore a swastika hat, he’d get banned from baseball – and a MAGA hat is no different.

“What’s the difference between Kurt Suzuki and everyone else in the world? He willingly got b**t f****d by Donald Trump,” one user wrote.

“Shame on the @Nationals for appearing at the WH and normalizing this shitshow of presidency. Shame on Kurt Suzuki and Ryan Zimmerman, both of who have shown their true colors,” another wrote. “Disgusting. Kudos to all of the Nats players who refused to attend.”

“Kurt Suzuki I feel sick and sad,” one individual remarked. “As a longtime A’s fan, I proudly wore your hat. Never again! I rooted for the #Nationals in hopes you would get a ring. My mistake. MAGA pres is criminal- that’s how you’ll be remembered: #unmasked. Doolittle is a man of character.”

They will never love you, Kurt Suzuki. They will never love you. Enjoy the hug and the delusion. Whatever makes you feel great.

Not gonna lie: having spent the past decade cheering on the Nats and the last several months obsessed w/ their playoff journey, it’s pretty heartbreaking to see Kurt Suzuki and company go far beyond polite reception and cozying up to a monster who hates people like me.

Hey, Kurt Suzuki, you just won the World Series. Now what are you going to do?

I’m going to make a gesture that’ll guarantee that 63 percent of the country loathes me even before they know who the hell I am.

After their fans booed Trump out of the building I did not expect the Washington Nationals would be the first pro sports team to treat their White House visit like a MAGA rally but here we are.

Kurt Suzuki offers Trump some political vindication by donning a MAGA hat at the White House ceremony. But the @Nationals follow Red Sox in being divided over Trump’s presidency, with several key players skipping out. Story with @dougherty_jesse https://t.co/WLkXWLgd7i

Do many of the athletes who go to the White House don MAGA hats like the Nationals’ Suzuki did?

Suzuki was not the only Nationals player to show support for the president. Ryan Zimmerman thanked Trump for “continuing to make America the greatest country in the world,” triggering leftists in droves:

“And the #ryanzimmerman Triggering topped 9.1 on the Prog Resistance Richter scale,” conservative author and commentator Michelle Malkin remarked:
