The Warriors aren’t visiting the White House during their annual trip to the nation’s capital, but they did visit former President Barack Obama.
A picture surfaced Thursday on social media of almost the entire roster posing with Obama. No coaches were present; just players.
In September 2017, after Golden State won its first NBA title with President Donald Trump in office, Trump tweeted, “Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team. Stephen Curry is hesitating, therefore invitation is withdrawn!”
In lieu of visiting the White House last February, the Warriors toured the National Museum of African American History and Culture with students from Kevin Durant’s hometown of Seat Pleasant, Md. After winning the NBA title again last June, Golden State needed no tweet from Trump to know it wouldn’t plan on attending the White House.
Seriously who would blame these guys for wanting to skip a visit with Tangerine Hitler and instead choose to hang with the coolest ex-president ever?
