The team said the appearance wasn’t about politics. The caps said otherwise.

Today in 1980, the USA pulled off the greatest upset in sports history. Do you believe in miracles? pic.twitter.com/OmSUXDjqdc

Ugh…. so disappointed by the @1980MiracleTeam. I loved watching that game as a kid with my dad. Loved watching the movie with my kids. To see them on a stage, in maga hats—kinda crushing I have to say.

They have forever tarnished their legacy. And for what? Disappointing doesn't even begin to cover it. Shameful.

They’re no heroes of mine
In 1980 they defeated Russia
Now they bend the knee to a man who gets his marching orders from Russia
Again – they’re not heroes

Miracle on Ice guys going to a Trump rally after defeating the USSR in 1980 is quite the fall from grace.

This wasn’t a White House invitation to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Miracle on Ice. This was a political event. Please note. When you appear at a Trump rally and wear MAGA hats it’s pretty hard to claim you’re not “choosing sides”. pic.twitter.com/6c7qamJssE
