(WASHINGTON) The World Series Champion Cubs visited the White House Monday.
“Even I was not crazy enough to suggest that, during these eight years, we would see the Cubs win the World Series but I did say that there has never been anything false about hope,” said President Obama.
Surrounded by the team, President Obama -a White Sox fan- says the drought hasn’t been as long for HIM because there he had the ’85 Bears, the Bulls run, the Blackhawks and, “The White Sox did win eleven years ago with Ozzie and Konerko, and Buehrle. So, I can’t claim that I have the same just visceral joy of some in this White House but FLOTUS (First Lady of the United States) is a lifelong Cubs fan.”
The President says for the first time in 8 years , the First Lady she made it a priority to greet a winning team at the White House before heading out to another event on Monday.
The President has been given a Cubs Jersey, a “W” flag and a lifetime pass to Wrigley Field.
