Rudy Giuliani’s 74th birthday was a little rough around the edges.

The former mayor of New York City and current lawyer for President Donald Trump showed up at Yankee Stadium on Monday to take in a ballgame. But when the stadium announced that Giuliani was in attendance for his birthday, he was immediately met with loud boos from the fans in attendance.

Giuliani has recently been back in the headlines as one of Trump’s lawyers, and has often been seen on television giving brazendefences of the president, only to be discounted or corrected by the White House days later.

With four out of five New Yorkers voting against Trump, it’s no surprise that those in attendance were less than enthused with their former mayor’s allegiances.

Giuliani wasn’t the only political figure to make waves at a sporting event on Monday night. Senator Ted Cruz set Twitter ablaze when he tweeted out a photo of himself courtside for Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals between the Houston Rockets and the Golden State Warriors.

The Rockets would go on to lose to the Warriors, 101-92, and the Yankees would fall to the Astros, 5-1.
