Trump knocks Dodgers' pitching change: 'Big mistake!'

President TrumpDonald John TrumpJimmy Carter: 'I hope there's an age limit' on presidency White House fires DHS general counsel: report Trump to cap California trip with visit to the border 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?”

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.
