President Trump Welcomes The Pittsburgh Penguins to the White House

Associated Press:

Sidney Crosby and the rest of the Pittsburgh Penguins view their trip to the White House on Tuesday as the final moment of celebration for a championship season, not some sort of statement about where they stand on President Donald Trump.

“From my side of things, there’s absolutely no politics involved,” Crosby said Monday. “Hopefully it stays that way. It’s a visit we’ve done in the past. It’s been a good experience. It’s not about politics, that’s for sure.”

Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan says he expects full attendance by his team for the brief ceremony, one the Penguins will make for a second straight year after becoming the first team in nearly two decades to win consecutive Stanley Cups. The Penguins are trying to focus on the reason they’ve been asked to stop by and nothing more.

“I think to have the opportunity to go to the White House obviously means that you’ve won a championship and that means a lot,” Sullivan said. “What our team has been able to accomplish in the last two seasons our team is extremely proud of.”

    How gracious President Trump was when Sidney Crosby acted like a complete ass. In fact they all looked paralyzed with fear and acted like asses by not coming to the podium when invited.

    Keep this video in mind when people tell you that President Trump responds emotionally without thinking.
