President Trump Meets LSU, And Mentions Bossier’s Marshall During Remarks
President Donald Trump welcomed the LSU Tiger football team into the White House today to celebrate their National Championship victory. While recapping the game, the President made some jokes, allowed players to take the microphone, and even pointed out Bossier City native Terrace Marshall, Jr's touchdown catch during his comments.
During the President's remarks, he made multiple comments to LSU quarterback Joe Burrow, turning around to get his reaction. At one point, Trump lit the room up joking about how much money Burrow's about to make in the NFL. Burrow laughed, as Trump compared him to Tom Brady, which is very high praise for a quarterback who's never thrown an NFL pass.
After the President's game recap, he asked LSU Head Coach Ed Orgeron to say a few words. Orgeron talked about this program, their "One Team. One Heartbeat." motto, and the support they've received. He of course delivered a "GO TIGAHS" as well.
Burrow eventually took the mic, he talked briefly about the trip, and presented the President with a custom jersey, while sharing a joke about giving him the Heisman Trophy.
The President ultimately turned the event into a political speech, even cursing during the event.
