Martha Washington knocks out five racing presidents with her purse

Martha Washington made yet another appearance during the Nationals Presidents race on Labor Day, and once again, the beneficiary was husband George.

This time, Martha appeared from the Nationals bullpen and swung her purse at each of George’s opponents as they approached the right field turn.

It was Martha’s fifth appearance this season, and while only some of those appearances have occurred on Mondays, both Teddy Roosevelt and William Howard Taft introduced a hashtag indicating that we should expect more of the first first lady on Mondays yet to come:
