President Donald Trump was booed while attending Ultimate Fighting Championship 244 at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night.
It was the second time in a week that Trump had received boos at a public event, after receiving chants of “Lock Him Up” when he attended the World Series.
The internet ridiculed Trump for the harsh public reception.
Here’s some of what people were saying about Trump, who is currently facing an impeachment inquiry:

Trump getting booed every time he goes to a public gathering that isn't one of his pseudo Hitler Youth rallies is one of the only good things 2019 has given us

Trump getting booed at the World Series is one thing.
Getting booed at UFC is a whole other level. That’s significant overlap with his base. https://t.co/Ol7OXCE5S4

Trump campaign: “We need to send Trump somewhere he’ll be cheered, he’s still humiliated from being booed at the World Series.”

At this point, Trump will be booed at a greyhound race in Florida

And that's what #UFC244 sounds like when Trump shows up.
He got booed.
Just like the #WorldSeries.
Now, all he's got to do is an NFL game and NBA game and he can round out his tour of disapproval.pic.twitter.com/0PJJUOF8rX

You guys, he can’t even go to ultimate fighting without getting booed.

The only places Trump is not likely to get booed at are his own rallies & maybe white evangelical churches. Wide swaths of the population see him as toxic.

Honestly surprised to see Trump booed at Ultimate Fighting Championship. This should be his crowd. pic.twitter.com/r1O1Vs20SR

If you want to go to a sporting event and not get booed, you better book a plane to Russia.
