LSU Lady Tigers Rejected Jill Biden Prior to Championship Game


We all know Joe Biden is one of the most universally unlikable politicians in the history of the United States.

The media couldn’t even hide this fact, so they pivoted to fawning over his wife, Jill Biden.

Here’s an honest question though:

Does anybody anywhere actually like “Dr. Jill?”

The NCAA Champion LSU Lady Tigers apparently don’t think all that highly of her.

According to star forward Angel Reese, the team refused to allow Jill Biden into their locker room before the NCAA championship game.

The New York Post has more on LSU’s rejection of “Dr. Jill:”

LSU star forward Angel Reese — who called the First Lady’s invitation for Iowa to visit the White House a “joke” — said the team declined to meet with her prior to defeating the Hawkeyes 102-85 in Dallas.

“Apparently she was supposed to come to our locker room before the game but we said ‘no,’” Reese said on I Am Athlete’s “Paper Route” show on Tuesday, adding that the team did not directly speak with the First Lady.

“She was supposed to come to our locker room and go to Iowa’s locker room. I don’t know if she talked to them. I don’t know if she did,” Reese said.

“But we said we didn’t want to. We didn’t want her coming into the locker room.”

Wow!

Talk about being rejected!

Apparently there is some bad blood between Angel Reese and Jill Biden.

Reese rejected Jill Biden’s apparent apology over suggesting that both the winning and losing teams be able to visit the White House.

Here are Biden’s original comments:

This couldn’t have been the reaction she expected:

Here’s more on the bad blood from Fox News:

LSU forward Angel Reese appeared to be burnt up about the suggestion first lady Jill Biden made about the possibility of inviting Iowa to the White House for its run to the national championship.

Usually, the White House celebration is reserved for the winners of championships, but even as a spokesperson for the first lady said Biden meant no respect toward the LSU team, Reese will not accept an apology.

“I’m not gonna lie to you, I don’t accept the apology because of, you said what you said. … I said what I said. And like, you can’t go back on certain things that you say,” Reese said Tuesday on the “Paper Route” podcast. “I mean, you, like, felt like they should’ve came because of sportsmanship, right? They can have that spotlight. We’ll go to the Obamas, we’ll see Michelle, we’ll see Barack.”

When asked whether the Tigers would visit the White House, Reese said, “We’re gonna see. I don’t know.”

The runners up also rejected Biden’s suggestion that both teams go to the White House.

Here’s what Iowa’s star player Caitlin Clark had to say:
