Comedian Bill Burr’s other half wasn’t thrilled to see former President Donald Trump at Madison Square Garden when he attended UFC 295 on Saturday.
Trump received an exceedingly warm welcome from MMA fans as he walked out of the arena’s tunnel with Kid Rock, Tucker Carlson, along with UFC president Dana White.
Trump entered the arena as if he was fighting in the main event as Rock’s “American Baddass” was blasted to the delight of the cheering crowds of spectators.
They were escorted to their octagon side seats by dozens of law enforcement personnel and Secret Service members., while Trump clapped and even fist bumped a fan along the way.

Burr’s wife, Nia Renee Hill, seemed to be one of the only detractors Trump faced on his way to his seats, which were as close as a spectator can get to the ring.
As Trump passed the “Old Dad” star and his spouse in their front row seats, Burr’s wife was seen giving the ex-president the double bird, according to the Daily Mail.
The outlet also noted that Hill may have screamed something at the 45th president, but it is not clear what she said to him.

Either way, Trump didn’t seem to care, or be aware, as his back was turned to Hill, and he was focusing on the positive attention from the fans, which is a typical response when he attends the league’s events.
This isn’t the first time that Trump and Rock have attended one of Dana White’s fight’s together. The pair were cheered on by fans at UFC 287 in April.
A photo of Trump, Rock, and Mike Tyson giving thumbs up signs as White grinned, while he was being embraced by 2024 presidential candidate as they all sat ringside went viral.
At both events, the audience broke out in to chants of “USA,” with Hill seemingly being in the minority of haters.
Burr’s wife was mocked by social media users as “classless” for the obscene gesture.
“That was so badass and savage when she stopped right as he turned his head towards her,” somebody noted.
“She’s obviously not a classy lady. She will be forgotten shortly,” another person replied to the video. “Meanwhile, top dogs walked into a UFC fight like they own it.”
While others were concerned how the comedian would fare in the wake of his spouse’s two finger salute to the former president.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if Dana White yanked her out of there,” another posited. “She [probably] ruined Bill Burrs chance for future VIP seats.”

“That’s gonna cost Bill some dough re mi,” someone tweeted in reply.
Hill has previously made remarks about Trump, but has never gone viral like she did after the video taken on Saturday.
“God, I hope Trump gets coronavirus,” she posted on X, formerly Twitter, in the early days of the pandemic.
Burr has also taken jabs at Trump in the past, most recently on his “Monday Morning Podcast” last year.
“Somebody was sending me clips of Donald Trump and I have to tell you, he is one of my favorite accidental stand-up comedians or comedic actors of all f**king time,” he remarked.
“I cannot take anybody seriously that voted for that guy. I can’t! I just — like how many times can you look the other way with this guy.”

Burr refused to spiral down a political rabbit-hole, but continued to laugh about Trump.
“Let’s not get into politics but it’s just like, there’s nobody in the world that I love listening try to convey an idea as much as — Donald Trump should have a f*cking Netflix special,” he continued.
“Like when that guy isn’t president he is one of the funniest human beings I’ve ever heard in my life. He’s like such a character.”
The comedian also thinks that President Joe Biden is “f**king hilarious.”
“They just wheel the guy out with f*cking sunglasses on,” Burr quipped.
