Cubs Get White House Invite From White Sox Fan-In-Chief

By Patty Wetli | November 3, 2016 8:48am

LINCOLN SQUARE — President Barack Obama has two months left in office, and there's one important bit of official business he's trying to squeeze in while he still has the keys to the White House: a visit from the World Series champions, the Chicago Cubs.

Obama sent this tweet from his official @POTUS account:

White House celebrations are a long-standing tradition for everyone from Super Bowl champs to college lacrosse teams, but the trips to D.C. can take months to arrange. Obama welcomed the 2015 World Series victors, the Kansas City Royals, in July 2016.

With the clock ticking on the Obama presidency, there's no time to waste for the most historic of photo ops: a devoted White Sox fan acting like the Nobel Peace Prize winner he is, shaking hands and hugging it out with the Cubs.

Whoever's in charge of the Cubs schedule better send an RSVP ASAP.
