Sorry Nancy Pelosi, but good luck telling the people of New Orleans that Donald Trump isn’t still the president.
Because—unlike Pelosi who has yet to show her face in the Senate to drop off the impeachment papers—Trump was front and center in front of the House that is the Superdome last night just before the College Football National Championship.
Yup, for the third time in three months, President Trump made a public appearance at a college football game. And for the third consecutive trip, he’s been greeted by raucous cheers.
Trump arrived at the College Football Playoff title game between No. 1 LSU and No. 3 Clemson at the Superdome yesterday with the expectation of a warm welcome. Both schools are located in states that have voted red in recent presidential elections, and Trump received cheers from the Southern fan bases when he was introduced before the national anthem to a massive ovation and chants of “U-S-A! U-S-A!”
Clemson has visited Trump in the White House twice after winning the title, with Dabo Swinney’s team visits coming in 2017 and 2019. Trump phoned his congratulations to LSU coach Ed Orgeron after LSU blew out Oklahoma, 63-28, in the College Football Playoff semifinals.
Looks like Orgeron will be getting those congrats in person after LSU’s 42-25 title won last night.
