WASHINGTON — If you’d told me five years ago that the Kansas City Royals would be holding a World Series trophy while presenting an authentic No. 44 team jersey to President Barack Obama, yours truly would’ve said “no effin’ way!” Well, it happened. The Royals celebrated their 2015 World Series title Thursday afternoon at the White House where they were greeted by fans, media, Kansas City Mayor Sly James, Hall of famer George Brett, Frank White and the Prez himself.

“You’ve got an offense led by homegrown guys like Alex ‘Gordo’ Gordon and Mike ‘Moose’ Moustakas, Eric ‘Hoz’ Hosmer, MVP Salvador ‘Salvy’ Perez,” said Obama during his speech. “These guys are all great players. Can I say, though, the nicknames aren’t that creative. It’s like, Barack ‘Barack’ Obama. You know? I mean, listen to this — Hoz, Moose, Gordo. We’re going to have to work on these.” 

Shortly after Obama’s presentation, loud chants of “Let’s Go Royals” could be heard throughout the White House. Royals owner David Glass was in attendance along with general manager Dayton Moore and manager Ned Yost. Last year’s team MVP Lorenzo Cain didn’t make the trip.

The Royals last visited the White House in 1985 when Ronald Reagan was in office.

Hopefully it won’t take that long to make it back.

  2. Obama is gonna look good wearing Royals blue.

  3. IF HE WOULD STAY OUT OF SPORTS, AND TAKE CARE OF THIS COUNTRY BUSS. THEN THIS COUNTRY WOULD NOT BE IN THE SHAPE IT”S IN……I TAKE THAT BACK…..STICK WITH SPORTS , AND LET TRUMP FIX YOUR MESS WHEN HE WINS……

  4. One thing Obama does well – welcoming championship sports teams to the White House.

    Obama waited 9 months to honor the Royals because he’s been too busy destroying the country.

    If voters make the mistake of electing Trump, all of the good things Obama does to recognize sports teams will go away, because all Trump cares about is himself!

  7. So Josh Earnest is a Royals fan … hmmmm…. I do really enjoy watching these guys play baseball, but now every time there’s a Royals game on, I’ll be reminded. I guess I’ll just have to resolve to ignore that factoid and enjoy the game as best I can.

  8. Obama is a champion just like the Royals! GO HILLARY 2016!

  9. Who knows what diseases one will get when visiting the White House. The Clintons were there and Bill’s junk spread all over.

  10. We have been BLESSED to have this man as a leader. It is amazing to have this level of humanity, genuineness, and compassion coming from a POTUS. Don’t know how long it’ll be before we get another with this level of class and professionalism. God bless President Barack Obama and God bless the USA.

    Congratulations Kansas City Royals and fuck you Obama, I hope your daughters never graduate college.

  12. No wonder the Royals keep on losing.

    The Obama curse is real.

  13. Demetri Aquilonian

    For all the great things that Obama does, he truly deserves another term to finish his plan for America! With his popularity being so high, it would be great if Obama could fix it so he stay our president another 8 years! I wonder if Obama actually knows how much he is admired and loved by America?

  14. Royals and Obama have something in common: they both suck!
