We’ve been wondering if the expected visit to the White House of the collegiate national football champion Louisiana State University Tigers ever happened?

No mention on MSNBC that we heard.

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer wasn’t wringing his hands and talking about "some people" saying some things. And there wasn’t a peep on the legacy networks.

Even the "Twitterati" maintained radio silence.

Did the team get sidetracked, something Clemson wasn’t able to accomplish in the championship game? Did Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., threaten to subpoena the team if it set foot on White House grounds?

It was something of a mystery until word began to leak out. The Washington Examiner broke the story and all mysteries were resolved. It seems the Tigers were happy to visit the White House and looked forward to meeting the president.

No member of the team decided to become a moral exhibitionist, loudly boycotting the event to protest — well to protest something:

Global Warming

Racism

Teenage Acne

Take your pick

And that makes perfect sense when you recall that when the president came out on the gridiron before the kickoff of the championship he was loudly cheered by the assembled fans.

Why would the players be any different, since they were from the same environment?

Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Joe Burrow could have been the darling of the left had he expressed any misgivings about the event and he might have merited a New York City tickertape parade had he completely boycotted the event.

Instead Joe Burrow said, "[President Trump] showed so much love to everyone on our team. I don't care if you're a Republican, Democrat, don't care about politics at all, that was an awesome experience for everybody."

Even better, the government wasn’t shut down, so refreshments weren’t limited. 

The president was also impressed with the Tigers.

He told them, "Joe, I want to say, on behalf of the country, that you make our country very, very proud," the president said. "You’re really an inspirational talent and all of that. But you’re an inspirational player, and you’re an inspirational person. And you have a heart that’s incredible, and you have a team that respects you so much."

That’s the way visits to the White House should proceed. A feel good story for everyone involved. Which is no doubt why coverage of this Louisiana State University (LSU) visit was buried by the opposition media.
