Third time's a charm, right?
The Boston Red Sox visited the White House on Thursday to be honored by President Donald Trump for their 2018 World Series victory, but it wasn't without the usual nonsense we expect each and every day from the nation's capital.
First, the White House spelled "Red Sox" incorrectly and then Trump accidentally savaged Steve Pearce by asking him if he was playing well this season (he's batting .111, so Trump clearly didn't brush up on his knowledge before the visit). And to top it all off?
Apparently the Sox are double champions or, depending on how you look at it, the champions of a sport/league we've never heard of.
First, the White House calls them the “Red Socks.” Now, they seem to be the “World Cup Series Champions” pic.twitter.com/oiZztyufs5— Jonathan Lemire (@JonLemire) May 9, 2019
The Boston Red Socks, your 2018 World Cup Series Champions!
This is AMERICA and the White House is destroying AMERICA'S pastime right before our very eyes. You call that patriotism? A buzzed freshman college student probably could've gotten this correct if they had the ample amount of time to prepare for it like the White House did.
I totally trust these people to sort out Iran. https://t.co/ugjfk5EEQe— John Tomase (@jtomase) May 10, 2019
Here we are, folks. It's 2019 and the people we are relying upon to sort out the world's most pressing and tense issues are giving championship teams fast food and butchering everything else along the way.
