As is customary, the President of the United States of America will welcome the NCAA National Champions — in this case, the University of Kentucky Wildcats — to the White House to honor them for their success.
Coach Cal and the Cats — MKG, Mr. Anthony Davis, Darius Miller and the whole crew — will hang out with Barry Hussein in the late afternoon.
Mitch McConnell, ever spiteful and little-in-heart, is blowing off the President and the Kentucky Wildcats.
As The Hill reports, Mitch is choosing to stay in Louisville that day in preparation for the Derby… which of course doesn’t happen ’til the next day and he could easily enough get to DC and back to the Derby City for a long night of bourbon sipping.
Some pot-smoking Bluegrass GOP operatives have strummed up a conspiracy theory that the entire event was orchestrated to make the Minority Leader look like the little man that he is… but as The Hill goes on to note:
A source close to McConnell says he is more a fan of the Louisville Cardinals, who lost to Kentucky in the semifinals of the NCAA tournament.
McConnell declined to publicly express a preference for either team, however.
Seems like a dumb move to us, but what the hell do we know — maybe Mitch has a hot date at Porcini’s this coming Friday.
Coach Cal, for his part, ignored McConnell’s snub, and instead focused on what was important… the kids.
“The amazing thing is the first thing that was said when the horn sounded in New Orleans was, ‘We’re going to the White House!’
“It’s one of those moments for these players that they have probably thought about without us even knowing that it was important to them. So I’m excited about the opportunity for them to meet the President of the United States, the Leader of the Free World and someone who is trying to make a difference in their lives.”
