    President Trump has had a rough go of it in the public eye recently, having been showered with boos during both a World Series game and a UFC fight.

    Third time’s a charm?

    We’ll see if his visit this weekend to Tuscaloosa, Ala. — in a state and region that typically provide friendly terrain for Trump — to see the No. 3–ranked University of Alabama square off against LSU, No. 2 in the CFP rankings, goes any better.

    If the school’s Student Government Association has its way, it will.

    ‘Any organizations that engage in disruptive behavior during the game will be removed from block seating instantly for the remainder of the season.’
    That’s an excerpt of letter from Jason Rothfarb, vice president of student affairs, in which he describes additional security measures covering the Bryant-Denny football stadium’s student section during the Saturday afternoon game.
    The letter was making the rounds Tuesday:

    From the University of Alabama SGA, ahead of President Trump's visit to the game. Strange that in all the games in which drunken bacchanalia has been tolerated, if not celebrated and encouraged I've never once been warned to not be "disruptive"

    The Twitter TWTR, +0.55% user Carter-William, who shared the letter, went on to question the warning.

    “Is screaming ‘F*** Auburn’ not disruptive?” he asked in a follow-up tweet. “Is booing the other team not disruptive? Is specifically screaming as loud as possible not disruptive? Or is it only disruptive when students express their displeasure with the President of the United States?”

    The SGA addressed the growing buzz surrounding the letter:

    The SGA may have denied it, but the president didn’t seem to have a problem with the initial interpretation of the letter, considering he retweeted a story warning “Protest Trump during the LSU game and risk losing your reserved seating.”

    Potential drama in the bleachers aside, the game is a huge one. Alabama and LSU, which have never played each other in front of a sitting president, are both undefeated and stand atop the AP poll, trailing only Ohio State in the College Football Playoff rankings

    One key player sidelined politics earlier this week in saying he’s looking forward to having Trump at the game. “You know, regardless of your political views, that’s pretty cool having the president at the game,” LSU quarterback Joe Burrow said Monday. “Doesn’t matter whether you’re a Democrat or a Republican, the president at the game’s pretty cool.”

    I would say this is far more freedom than the common leftist activism on today's campuses.. which would be to either prevent Trump from attending the game or simply have the game cancelled.

    It appears, from Trump re-tweeting the warning, that he is against freedom of speech and freedom of Protest. Too American for the Putin lover. He went there to get back at those who showed their disdain for him at the last 2 sporting events he attended.
    As it has been pointed out...he has never paid this much attention to these events before, but anything to draw attention...IF the attention grabbing doesn't backfire.

    Personally, I think they should have been able to parade the Trump Baby balloon around the field at half-time.
