First Lady Jill Biden got blocked by the entire team when she attempted to make a pregame visit to the NCAA women’s basketball championship team — Louisiana State University — and she only had her husband to blame.
According to LSU star forward Angel Reese, Biden had planned to meet with the team prior to Sunday’s championship game — but because President Joe Biden had predicted in his pre-tournament bracket that the team would lose to Michigan, they wanted nothing to do with her.
“Apparently she was supposed to come to our locker room before the game but we said ‘no,'” Reese revealed during a post-championship interview for “I Am Athlete.”
“She was supposed to come to our locker room and go to Iowa’s locker room. I don’t know if she talked to them. I don’t know if she did,” Reese explained. “But we said we didn’t want to. We didn’t want her coming into the locker room.”
The reason, Reese said, was simple: “I think Joe Biden had put somebody else to win the national championship.”
“He didn’t even put us on his bracket to get out of Baton Rouge, so I was like, bet … I think that he said we were going to lose to Michigan or something,” she added.
Biden’s pre-tournament bracket — which had Villanova taking the top spot — predicted that LSU would lose to Michigan in the second round.
Reese also scoffed at the First Lady’s suggestion to have second place Iowa join the champions in their traditional trip to the White House.
“I know we’ll have the champions come to the White House, we always do,” Jill Biden said on Monday. “So, we hope LSU will come. But, you know, I’m going to tell Joe I think Iowa should come, too, because they played such a good game.”
Reese was not interested, calling the dual invite “a joke” — even after Jill Biden’s press secretary Vanessa Valdivia clarified that her intent had only been to acknowledge that all of the women involved had played a great game.
“I’m not gonna lie to you, I don’t accept the apology because you said what you said,” she said. “I said what I said. You can’t go back on certain things that you say. I mean, you felt like they should’ve come because of ‘sportsmanship,’ right? They can have that spotlight. We’ll go to the Obamas.”
