Jill Biden Inviting Both LSU and Iowa State Womens Basketball Teams to the White House

In a speech at the Colorado State Capitol in Denver on Monday, Jill Biden congratulated both teams in Sunday’s National championship game. 

For the first time, Louisiana State University women’s basketball team won its first NCAA championship playing against Iowa with a score of 102-85. 

Jill announced –  “So I know we’ll have the champions come to the White House; we always do. So, we hope LSU will come, but, you know, I’m going to tell Joe [Biden] I think Iowa should come, too, because they played such a good game.”

The First Lady’s Idea took a massive hit as social media fired back. Thousands of tweets on Twitter got sent in just two hours. 

Many think Jill invited both teams because the winning team is predominantly strong black women. By inviting the primarily white women, she’s giving them the same privileges that the black women had to earn. 

Journalist Tour’e tweeted, “The WH has a crisis on its hands…”

Keith Boykin on Twitter also had something to say.

20-year-old Reese is a fantastic player for the Tigers and was named the women’s NCAA tournament’s Most Outstanding Player! She played a massive part in the victory for the Tigers. 

Reese tweeted a link to the story, including Biden‘s comments saying “A JOKE” and three rolling-on-the-floor laughing emojis.  

In the comments on a post from ‘The Shade Room’  including Reese’s tweet, the NCAA Champion responded with – “WE NOT COMING.  period.”

ESPN host Stephen A. Smith Responded to Reese’s tweet by saying, “I mean absolutely zero disrespect to the First Lady, but you are 1000% correct. That is a bad suggestion. Runner-ups don’t get invited to the White House. Why are we trying to change it now? I completely agree with you, Angel.”
