PROTEST: Houston Astros Fans Urged to Wear Trump Shirts

A Houston Astros fan says she was forced to undergo additional screening because she wore a "FreeTrump" t-shirt to the ballpark.

A Houston Astros fan says she was forced to undergo additional screening because she wore a “FreeTrump” t-shirt to the ballpark. Teneea Tate said she was only allowed to enter Minute Maid Park after she covered up the shirt. She was a guest on my show. Watch the interview below:

“We are being silenced and our rights are being taken from us,” Tate wrote on Facebook. “Wake up America! It’s happening everywhere.”

Callers to the Todd Starnes Radio Show said every fan should show up wearing Trump apparel.

Tate said the ticket taker pulled her aside and directed her into an “extensive metal detector scan for no apparent reason.”

“They quickly phoned another person telling them about my shirt and the seats I was in (to keep an eye on me),” she said. “They threatened to kick me out if I didn’t change or cover up my shirt.”

“Luckily I brought a jacket, which I was forced to put on or risk no being let in,” she said.

Not only is this a violation of my 1st Amendment right as an American Citizen, it was also very embarrassing, Tate said.

The Astros did not return calls seeking comment.

“I love my Astros and spend tons of money on tickets and Astros gear, but unfortunately this may be my last game in person,” she said. “Let’s fix real problems, America! Do better Minute Maid.” Click here to read “Twilight’s Last Gleaming: Can America Be Saved?”
