Manny Machado may have lost some fans by what he was wearing, but he certainly gained a ton more at the same time.
The San Diego Padres star was photographed on Wednesday wearing a shirt with a popular anti-President Joe Biden chant printed on the front. The third baseman for the San Diego Padres was pictured donning a “Let’s Go Brandon” t-shirt, which became a popular way to say ‘F–k Joe Biden’ without actually saying it.
“Padres superstar Manny Machado repping a “Let’s Go Brandon” shirt at Spring Training,” the tweet said.
How social media erupted:
The San Diego Padres massively underachieved last year as they fell off a cliff after the All-Star break and ended up missing the postseason altogether. Many truly believe that this team is better than their 79-83 2021 record indicates.
Machado is a five-time All-Star who quietly enjoyed an impressive 2021 campaign. He smashed 28 home runs, drove in 106 RBI’s, and added 12 stolen bases.
