Author and commentator Nick Adams called Sanchez “classless.” “Giving the middle finger to the GOP Baseball team is hateful and divisive,” he tweeted. He even suggested that Sanchez should face political consequences for her poor sportsmanship. “Sanchez should be banned from all future Congressional baseball games and permanently stripped of all committees.”

One Twitter user sarcastically praised Sanchez as a role model for kids. Nancy Pelosi, the coach of the Democratic team, had to say about the game. “This game is so great and people are so nice,” Pelosi told Fox. “That’s what makes it great that we’re competitive, and it’s great to be here and have a little fun. ” This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
