Alabama student government threatens loss of seating for any Trump protesters
[thehill.com]

The University of Alabama's student government is reportedly warning that students could lose their reserved football seating for the rest of the year if they protest President Trump's appearance during Saturday's game against LSU.

“Additional security will … be in the student section during the game. Any organizations that engage in disruptive behavior during the game will be removed from block seating instantly from the remainder of the season,” Vice President of Student Affairs Jason Rothfarb wrote in a letter to students, AL.com reported on Wednesday.

Nearly 60 student groups reportedly have reserved blocks of seats at Bryant Denny Stadium, and attendees have been encouraged to arrive at least two hours early due to the high security.

I need Alabama to lose the game. That's priority one. Then I need LSU to lose later.

no kidding - I'd think the threat alone would diminish the enjoyment of the game for some people anyway.

It may be hard to believe but there are really a lot of people who have no idea how unpopular Trump is. This is the sort of event that would burst through the bubble they live in, Trump can't afford that.

Alabama is already backing off. It released a clarifying statement that the memo was just meant to raise awareness that there will be enhanced security at the game due to Trump's presence.

In other words, Trump's ego is so eggshell-thin, that booing him would be a security threat.
