NEW YORK (WFAN) – Donald Trump is no stranger to Yankee Stadium. He’ll even tweet about the Bronx Bombers from time to time.
But when it comes to rooting on New York, let’s just say “The Donald” should stay away from the wave — or get some practice.
That goes for Fox News personality Bill O’Reilly, too.
In a video making the rounds online, Trump and O’Reilly are seen seated together in the seventh inning of Monday night’s Yankees loss. Trump was a few moments late to the party when the wave rolled through, flinging his arms up as the fans around him were sitting down.
Meanwhile, the “O’Reilly Factor” host was barely that, offering just his index finger.
One website said the duo’s attempt was “as joyless as you’d imagined.” And — imagine this — there’s been no shortage of fun made of it on Twitter.
“Donald Trump and Bill O’Reilly refuse to do the wave, until they see Obama’s birth certificate,” wrote user @ElginP.
Former Yankees outfielder Paul O’Neill, now an analyst for the YES Network, had a zinger of his own during the game broadcast.
“He’s got his own wave!” O’Neill said of Trump.
