The First Lady requested to meet with NCAA National Football Champions the Georgia Bulldogs but was rejected.
The invite was to be scheduled for June 12th. However, the team said they are busy.
“The University of Georgia first received on May 3 an invitation for the Bulldog football team to visit the White House on June 12,” the wrote in a statement. “Unfortunately, the date suggested is not feasible given the student-athlete calendar and time of year.”
What’s even more humiliating is that the entire Georgia Congressional Delegation had requested the White House invite them. The letter was signed by Rep. Earl “Buddy” Carter (R-GA) was signed by Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA), Sen. Jon Ossoff (D-GA), and Reps. Barry Loudermilk (R-GA), Henry C. “Hank” Johnson (D-GA), Austin Scott (R-GA), Sanford Bishop (D-GA), Rick Allen (R-GA), Nikema Williams (D-GA), Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), David Scott (D-GA), Drew Ferguson (R-GA), Lucy McBath (D-GA), Andrew Clyde (R-GA), Mike Collins (R-GA) and Rich McCormick, M.D. (R-GA).
“We write to request you host the 2023 National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) College Football Playoff National Champions, the University of Georgia Bulldogs, for a White House ceremony at your earliest convenience,” the letter said. “The Georgia Bulldogs, led by head coach Kirby Smart, completed a historic season in which they accomplished a 15-0 record and won their second national championship in the same number of years.”
“For years, the college football national champion has had the high honor of being hosted, by the President, at the White House,” the letter later added. “Due to COVID-19 constraints, the 2021-22 University of Georgia national championship team was unable to come to D.C. It is our hope that this repeat championship team can join the many teams prior that have been honored by the President.”
It has also been reported that the woman’s NCAA basketball National Champions will not visit the White House due to a controversy with Jill Biden.
