Members of the Boston Red Sox made the trip to Washington D.C., on Thursday to celebrate their 2018 World Series win with President Donald Trump.

Not every member of the team went, however. Most of the players of color and Puerto Rican manager Alex Cora declined to attend, clearly showing a divide among the team whether it’s admitted or not.

That trip spilled over into Boston’s game against the Seattle Mariners on Friday night.

Just before the sixth inning at Fenway Park, several fans draped a “Trump 2020” campaign flag from the upper deck.

That flag, though, didn’t last long.

Fans sitting in the section directly below where it was hung quickly ripped the flag down, and received a solid ovation from fans in the surrounding sections.

While the incident had no impact on the game itself — Boston cruised to a 14-1 win — it did make one thing abundantly clear. Red Sox fans are united with their team in the fact that they are divided on their feelings toward Trump and his administration.

That has to count for something, right?
