The Boston Red Sox won the World Series on Sunday – and the media are already speculating about whether the team will boycott the tradition of visiting the White House because of President Donald Trump.
However, Boston Red Sox pitcher Heath Hembree stunned media with a blunt answer when he was asked if he planned to visit the White House.
“You think you’ll go to the White House, man?” a TMZ Sports reporter asked.
“Hell yeah,” Hembree responded. “I f*** with Trump.”
When asked what his favorite thing about Trump, the 29-year-old star gave the president even more love.
“Everything,” the pitcher said.

The Boston Red Sox defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-1 in the World Series. Expect the media to hound the team about their views about President Trump and the upcoming visit to the White House, with the obvious intention being to get players to bash him.
They likely weren't expecting Hembree to be so outspoken about his support for Trump.
Trump had yet to congratulate the Red Sox as of Monday afternoon, but he did offer the Dodgers some free advice during Game 5.
"Watching the Dodgers/Red Sox final innings. It is amazing how a manager takes out a pitcher who is loose & dominating through almost 7 innings, Rich Hill of Dodgers, and brings in nervous reliever(s) who get shellacked. 4 run lead gone," Trump tweeted. "Managers do it all the time, big mistake!"
