This week, he sparked outrage after showing up to Padres Spring Training in a shirt reading, “Let’s Go Brandon.” The phrase is a well-known insult to President Joe Biden.

When pictures of Machado’s outfit popped up online, netizens were quick with the comments.

“Love to see it,” one person wrote.

“Nice Shirt! Lol at the snowflakes melting down over this,” a third wrote.

“What happened to keeping politics out of sports?” someone else commented.

While many have complained about politics in sports, the combination is unlikely to go away anytime soon.
