For acting and sounding as tough as they do, some fans of the New York Yankees sure do trigger easily.
Fans of the Bronx Bombers, who were already having an ostensibly had time on account of the Houston Astros’ phenomenal performance on the field, became totally unhinged when they spotted Senator Ted Cruz at the game.
Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz was treated to New York’s famous hospitality as fans flipped him off in the stands during Sunday’s game between the Yankees and the Houston Astros.Advertisement - story continues below
Spectators were seen giving the Republican the finger as he walked down the aisles at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx as the home team lost to the Astros in a close 6-5, as the Astros swept the Yankees and will now head to their fourth World Series in only six years.
According to a photo shot as Cruz was walking the stands, several fans were flipping the bird, and at least one was giving Cruz the thumbs down, the New York Post reported.

Cruz would have the last laugh, however, as the Houston Astros swept the Yankees to advance to the World Series.
