President TrumpDonald TrumpHeadaches intensify for Democrats in Florida Stormy Daniels set to testify against former lawyer Avenatti in fraud trial Cheney challenger wins Wyoming Republican activists' straw poll MORE late Saturday night fired off a tweet commenting on Game 4 of the World Series, saying it was a "big mistake" for the Los Angeles Dodgers to pull pitcher Rich Hill.
“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,” he tweeted.
“4 run lead gone. Managers do it all the time, big mistake!”

The Boston Red Sox went on to win the game, 9-6, and now lead the series, three games to one.
Social media users criticized the timing of Trump’s tweet, which came hours after at least 11 people were killed in a shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue.
“I think you meant to say: I am having a real difficult time sleeping tonight,” wrote one user.
Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.), a frequent critic of Trump, tweeted: “Is tonight when [Trump] became our President? Or was it when he said ‘there are some very fine people on both sides’ at the white nationalist mob event in Charlottesville?”
A mass shooting occurred killing innocent people and here you are tweeting about a baseball game. Real presidential— Cassidy #bluenami (@Cassidy_79) October 28, 2018

I am having a real difficult time sleeping tonight. The horrible events of today are weighing heavily on my mind. I can’t help but to take some of the blame for this terrible politically charged time we are in. I’m sorry and I will do better.
There was a horrific mass shooting and several families are shattered. However you choose to Tweet about the World Series. Do you see how this makes it seem like you don’t empathize with the pain of the victims? #MAGA— Tito (@tconti) October 28, 2018
Is this even real? 11 Americans were murdered in a hate crime today. https://t.co/SfoBCx1IvN— Joan Walsh (@joanwalsh) October 27, 2018
There was a shooting at a synagogue today. 11 people were killed. Earlier this week, there was mass assassination attempt by a proud MAGA supporter. Also, a man shot and killed two black people in Kentucky and said, "whites don't shoot whites." What is wrong with you? https://t.co/kOJOMNiBWj— Wajahat Ali (@WajahatAli) October 28, 2018
Is tonight when @realDonaldTrump became our President?— Ted Lieu (@tedlieu) October 28, 2018
--Or was it when he said "there are some very fine people on both sides" at the white nationalist mob event in Charlottesville?
--Or when he tweeted CNN getting body slammed?
--Or when he sabotaged healthcare? https://t.co/YCcnBk1N97
Trump condemned the shooting earlier Saturday as an “assault on humanity” and an “evil anti-Semitic attack.” He also suggested that an “armed guard” at the synagogue could have prevented the attack.
The suspected shooter, 46-year-old Robert Bowers, had posted anti-Semitic comments and reportedly shouted “all Jews must die” before the shooting. He has been charged with 29 federal counts, including 11 counts of obstruction of the exercise of religious beliefs resulting in death.
