It looks like there will be no photo op for Joe Biden with the national champion Georgia Bulldogs this year.
For some reason, the invitation for the Bulldogs to visit the White House did not go out until May.
With such short notice, the school already had events in place for the day the White House marked, so the Bulldogs turned down the invite, reports The Bleacher Report.
There has been considerable pushback against Biden for not having invited the team earlier in the year.
When you consider the championship game is played in January, why the wait? There was even scuttlebutt on social media that perhaps it was simply because it was a southern state that Biden was delaying the visit.
According to Georgia, they only received the invite last Wednesday for a visit that was scheduled just a few weeks ahead. Clearly, nobody from Biden’s team thought it may be prudent to contact the school to see what dates would work best for the team.
Georgia’s athletic association stated, “The University of Georgia first received on May 3 an invitation for the Bulldog football team to visit the White House on June 12.
“Unfortunately, the date suggested is not feasible given the student-athlete calendar and time of year,” reports the New York Post.
It really is a shame because like the current Oval Office occupant or not, this is quite an experience for those kids, and now they miss out on it because Joe Biden apparently has a bunch of idiots working for him.
This comes after Jill Biden stumbled on the women’s basketball championship invite.
Jill Biden caused a controversy by wanting to give out a loser’s invite to Iowa, a predominantly white team, after they got crushed by LSU, a predominately black team, in the final.
Jill had stated, “I know we’ll have the champions come to the White House, we always do. So, we hope LSU will come. But, you know, I’m going to tell Joe I think Iowa should come, too, because they played such a good game.”
Several members of the team threw around some racist accusations over the double invite, with the star player of the team, Angel Reese, saying she would rather go visit with Obama. Eventually, LSU caved and decided it would accept the visit to the White House.
Reese stated, “If we were to lose, we would not be getting invited to the White House. Remember she made a comment about how both teams should be invited because of sportsmanship. I’m like, ‘Are you saying that because of what I did?’
“Stuff like that bothers me because you are a woman at the end of the day, white, black, Mexican, it doesn’t matter. You’re supposed to be standing behind us before anything.”
The ladies of LSU will be at the White House on May 26.
