President Trump was presented a custom “Trump 45″ Jersey by the LSU championship football team he hosted at the White House.
Team coach Ed Orgeron said “What an honor to be here at the White House. We have the best organization in the world. We’re so proud of you.”
Star quarterback Joe Burrow also thanked Trump personally and said “It’s truly an honor to be here. It’s a moment we’ll never forget. Thank you. It’s so awesome to be here.”
NYPost reports President Trump on Friday welcomed the college champion LSU Tigers to the White House to celebrate their historic achievement — and cracked a couple of impeachment trial jokes along the way.
After summarizing the highlights of LSU’s season — which culminated in a 42—25 rout of Clemson for the national championship — the president invited team members and coaches to the Oval Office for photos at the Resolute Desk.
“It’s been there a long time — a lot of presidents, some good, some not so good. You’ve got a good one now, even though they’re trying to impeach the son of a bitch. Can you believe it?” Trump said, as the players and coaches laughed.
He then touted having the “greatest economy in the history of the world,” and added that “we took out those terrorists like your football team would’ve taken out those terrorists!”
Earlier, Trump praised the Tigers, calling them a “team of heart and skill and hope and courage and passion and strength and an unbreakable will of confidence” to succeed.
“Your explosive offense pushed every team to the breaking point,” Trump said as he summarized the highlights of the team’s season, drawing cheers from the players and coaches.
