DNC Backs Out of Annual Softball Game Against RNC: 'All Our Players Are in the Field'

Talk about petty. Leftists are so triggered by anything associated with the GOP, President Trump and anyone else who doesn’t agree with them that they’ve decided to shun a traditional show of solidarity between the two major political parties.

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) has refused to play in this year’s edition of the annual softball game between the DNC and the Republican National Committee (RNC).

According to the Daily Caller:

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.'

That’s a pretty ridiculous excuse. Which field? Certainly not the softball field. Why are those “players” on the team if they’re not available for the one game they’re supposed to play every year?

Who knows if the DNC’s excuse matches reality. All I know is that Leftists once again have slapped tradition in the face, while providing nothing of substance in its place.
