Report: DNC Won’t Play RNC in Annual Softball Game

Report: DNC Won’t Play RNC in Annual Softball Game

Talk about taking your ball and going home

This is not a good look for Democrats.

According to The Daily Caller, the DNC will not play the RNC in this year’s annual Congressional softball game.

The long-standing tradition has always been an opportunity for parties to put politics aside for a little fun and camaraderie.

Sources at the RNC told TDC that Democrats are focused on the midterm elections and as a result, won’t have time to make play this year:

Despite being a time-honored tradition going back many years, the DNC is refusing to play the RNC at this year’s annual softball game.

RNC sources tell The Daily Caller that they were “stunned” when Democrats abruptly pulled out of the good-natured game between leadership and staffers at opposing political organizations.

The game was an opportunity to put aside the partisan bickering and come together in friendly competition. The decade-old tradition typically ended in staffers having a drink at a nearby bar.

RNC sources familiar with the decision said the DNC told them that “all our players are out in the field this year. We won’t be able to play.”

In the past, good-natured bets would be made between RNC and DNC leadership. In 2014, Sean Spicer and former DNC spox Mo Elleithee made a bet that Mo would shave his head if the DNC lost and Sean would swap Twitter avitars to the DNC logo if the RNC lost.

Right smack in the middle of a party-wide identify crisis and desperate to flip seats in the upcoming midterms, it makes sense the DNC has prioritized the RNC game off the schedule, but it’s disappointing to see one of the few purposely non-partisan events kicked to the curb because of politics.

James Hodgkinson could not be reached for comment.

“The game was an opportunity to put aside the partisan bickering and come together in friendly competition.” Clearly the Dems/Progs have no interest in stopping bickering. If you take that away, they have NOTHING!

They are just acknowledging that the Democrats and the GOPe are really on the same team anyway.

    Shouldn’t confuse RINOs with actual conservative republicans.

    RINOs are NOT republican, they are NWO/globalists.
    USA’s 5th column, RINOs and ALL democrats:
    Obama, McCain, Boehner, McConnell, Clinton, Kerry, Graham, Bush, Ryan and Rubio (and ‘their’ puppets like Comey, Jeh and Lynch) answer ultimately to this ‘boss’ and who is enabled by Soros’s NGOs:
    Ignore the stupid music in the beginning, after watching both short videos, it is not hard to see the real agenda of MSM, Obama/Clinton/Bush crime families, Soros, many of the Obama populated judgeships, progressive left infested alphabet Federal agencies (CIA, DHS, DOJ etc. Obama insider hold overs). ALL globalist RINOs and all democrats fight and undermine Trump every inch of the way. By the way, the above; ‘Paid for by Taxes to Subvert President Trump’, yep, we’re paying for this sedition on a massive scale.
    Obama and Rockefeller 1
    Obama and Rockefeller 2
    … and why never Trumpers wanted the treasonous, fellow globalist criminal Hillary:
    When listening to this short speech below, put it in context with her emails (did she say ‘inbox’?) and the fact that our foreign enemies also, with “100 percent certainty”, hacked into her and her aid’s ‘top secret’ emails.
    Hillary Clinton ADMITS CFR Runs the Government!

    This explains it all, the GOP RINOs haven’t been ‘caving on everything’ as Sean Hannity and Rush keep saying, the GOP RINOs are COMPLICIT.

This could be worked into a Republican campaign ad by one of those imaginative sorts.

At the very least, use this story for another media cycle and bring the shooting of the GOP Congressmen back into the light.
The MSM has buried the story so well that their own people warn us that “hatred” for the media could escalate to violence, without a hint of irony or shame.

Wrong link Kemberlee.
Should have used this one with the included picture.

Then count up the diversity the dnc baseball team has. You’ll also be hard pressed to find more than 4 black people in the picture.
Add in the demand to show photo id to get into the dnc headquarters we have a problem with their stance I’d think.

    Democrats, far more than average run of the mill politicians across the world, have never had a problem with hypocrisy.

My bet is that they know the game would be covered extensively with plenty of references to the shooting last year, especially if Steve Scalaise attended. This story won’t be covered at all.

You only need 9 players on the field. I hope the RNC holds the game without the Democrats.

Pitiful behavior, but expected from Zealots rabid ideologues communist democrats. Their Hate consumes them, vipers snakes,

no trust with them beware always. Alinsky acolytes.

They are tired of getting beat. Just picture the resulting photos of them trying to hit or field? haha! The resulting pictures would make Obama on the bike in his mom jeans look studly.

    THe point of the game was to play, and have fun…If the actual victory becomes a monumental event, then the game should be tossed. This is just another molehill in Washington that is officially now mountain. If they wanted to have a symbolic game, field two teams with both sides of the aisle maybe draw names from a hat. Show the public how our Congress can play (work) together. Sadly, this will never ever happen. That being said, the blue team are a bunch of babies.

From what I have heard the Dems will be at home beating the bushes for votes in Nov. Meanwhile, the R’s are whining about what bad sports the Dems are and not getting any new votes at all. Has anyone at the RNC thought about getting out the vote? Less than 100 days to decide the future of our country and our side is worried about sportsmanship and softball!

Somehow this feels like that record album that “mocked” the Kennedys

It had a skit that ended with … “because it’s my ball”

Maybe somebody realized how bad it would look on video when the D’rat players don’t stand for the anthem.

Let’s be honest here….the “ball” is not theirs, its most likely belongs to someone that worked for it and they feel entitled to take it.

Baseball, hot dogs, apple pie, and Chevrolet. They really don’t get America, do they?

No great loss as who wants to associate with Marxist’s in the first place.

Democrats are afraid of being shot by other Democrats. They just want to get out of the line of fire.

    Liberals, being gun control advocates, in general don’t know squat about guns. In particular, that shooting is a skill which requires self discipline and practice. They’ve seen too many movies and think they can pick up a piece and start splitting wigs and busting caps on people. The Dems want to be out of the way.
