Was the crowd cheering or jeering the presence of POTUS when he showed up at UFC 244? Different videos make conflicting claims.
Trump went there and had a good time, as you can see:
Before we get to the conflicting video, this clip was just too fun to pass up. Here is Trump getting his due from some badass athletes who see a different sort of a warrior trait in Trump that they can respect… regardless of party affiliation.
“No matter what your views on Trump as a president, the guy’s a bad motherfucker man.” – Jorge Masvidal

When was the last time you ever heard a Democrat or Media personality give Trump even the grudging nod of respect one might grant to a worthy adversary? They just can’t bring themselves to do it. It’s part of why we don’t take the Media seriously.

For all the haters that keep pretending it was only cheers by us in the first video and boos elsewhere, here’s another one from higher up. Nice try fake news, fakers gonna fake but you’re only driving home the point that you guys are biased beyond repair. @ufc @danawhite pic.twitter.com/vf907q7EAH

Why would Dana think so highly of the President? Because the President played a role in the early days before UFC become the phenomenon it is today:

So… now that you’ve heard both clips (and enjoyed a few other clips thrown in for good measure) who do you believe in the battle of cheers and jeers?
