    Celebrity Alan Cumming apparently enjoyed the occasion, tweeting, "So much fun joining in the mass collective boo at Donald Trump here at the U.S. Open!!"
    Trump is leading nearly every Republican poll both nationally and in early voting states. He is scheduled to leave New York tomorrow to appear at a rally in Washington with Ted Cruz to protest the Iranian nuclear deal.
