The Seattle Seahawks made the customary championship visit to the White House today and you better believe there was plenty of Instagram flexing as they got to experience the Nation’s Capitol as few are able to.
President Obama also had a little fun with the Super Bowl Champs.
“I considered inviting Sherman up here to the podium today,” said Obama, standing a few feet from the Lombardi Trophy.
“I’d have given him the mic, but you know we’ve got to go in a little bit,” he quipped.
“Sometimes I do feel disrespected by you reporters,” said Obama. “But that’s OK. Seattle Seahawk cornerback Richard Sherman is here tonight. And he gave me some great tips on how to handle it. Jake Tapper, don’t you ever talk about me like that! I’m the best President in the game!”
Obama also spoke about Sherman overcoming a tough environment in Compton to go on to succeed at Stanford University and in the NFL.
Looks like these guys had a great time.
