On Wednesday, during a meet-and-greet at the Oval Office with the World Series champions, while meeting President Donald Trump, one of the Chicago Cubs flipped the middle finger.
The Cubs center fielder, Albert Almora showed his middle finger, standing pretty close to the US president. His hands were in the pocket, but it was perfectly clear that he showed the middle finger. The photo is taken by the Chicago Sun Times and it was shortly published on Twitter.
Before he even entered the White House, the Cubs player told the news agency that he wanted to meet the President. He said, “I just look at it as it’s not every day you get to meet the President of the United States. And in a year I get to meet two.”
The US president warmly welcomed the Cubs players to the White House. He met with Joe Maddon, the manager and he called the Cubs a “great team.”
President Donald Trump received from the team a jersey with a printed “45” on it regarding him being the 45th president of the United States.
According to Maddon, the visit was not an official trip, but a voluntary one. He said the visit to the White House was due to respect for the Ricketts family, which in fact owns the Cubs and contributed to Trump’s campaign.
Last November, Donald Trump nominated Ricketts to be the deputy secretary of commerce in the administration, but Ricketts pulled himself because he did not corresponded with ethic demands connected to his business holdings.
Back in January, when the Cubs paid visit to the White House during Barack Obama’s presidency, after triumphing the World Series, Almora seemed way smarter, dressed in a suit, which was not the same when he met President Donald Trump.
SHARE if you think this guy is extremely rude!
