The University of Virginia Men’s Basketball team downed Texas Tech University in early April to become NCAA champions.

Now, the team is already rejecting a future invite from the White House to celebrate their title with President Trump.

The reason?

Really, bro?

If Barack Obama was still president would their be “scheduling conflicts?” Doubtful.

From Yahoo News:

Tony Bennett and the Virginia men’s basketball team will not be making the customary trip to the White House to celebrate their national championship, the school announced on Friday.

[…]

The Baylor women’s basketball team did accept an invitation to visit Trump at the White House after winning the national championship earlier this month. The Lady Bears are scheduled to make the trip on Monday, marking the first time under the Trump administration that a women’s basketball team has done so.

From the team’s Twitter account:

“We have received inquiries about a visit to the White House. With several players either pursuing pro opportunities or moving on from UVA, it would be difficult, if not impossible to get everyone back together. We would have to respectfully decline an invitation.” – Tony Bennett

More:

UVA’s basketball team declined an invite to the White House, claiming scheduling issues.

15,000+ people signed a petition asking the national college champions to reject it over President Trump’s “reprehensible” comments after the 2017 Charlottesville white supremacist rally.

WATCH:

Speaking of the White House, Trump will skip the Correspondents Dinner for the third year in a row.

Would you like to sit with a large group of people who want to do nothing but ruin your night with lame jokes?

This is probably one of the easier decisions POTUS has had to make since becoming commander-in-chief.

What’s different this time around is that Trump is making a demand of his staff.

From Washington Times:

President Trump has ordered his administration to boycott the annual White House Correspondents Association dinner, an event that Mr. Trump will skip for the third straight year.

White House Cabinet Secretary Bill McGinley announced that all Trump administration officials are being ordered to boycott the dinner.

Here’s Trump’s announcement from earlier in April, per The Hill:

President Trump said Friday he will skip this year’s White House Correspondents’ Association (WHCA) dinner and hold a rally instead.

Trump noted, “The dinner is boring and so negative that we’re going to hold a very positive rally.

He added, “I’m going to hold a rally. Yeah, because the dinner is so boring and so negative that we’re going to hold a very positive rally.

He concluded, “We haven’t determined. We have about three sites. Everybody wants it. It’ll be a big one. But the correspondents’ dinner is too negative. I like positive things.

Video: Biden Can Put the ‘World Back Together,’ Says Failed POTUS Candidate John Kerry

Oh, is that right?

John Kerry failed as a presidential candidate and was arguably the worst secretary of state in modern times. That being said, Joe Biden apparently loves the guy. Go figure. At a recent event in Iowa, Kerry said something that nobody should say about any person – ever. Kerry said Biden can put the “world back together.” And yes, he was absolutely dead serious. WATCH: John Kerry: “Iowa, when you caucus in February, don’t just send a message. Send us a president. Send us a man who can put the world back together. Send us Joe Biden.” https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1203035127166775296?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1203035127166775296&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F12%2Fjohn-kerry-joins-joe-biden-on-iowa-bus-tour-kerry-touts-biden-as-messianic-figure-who-can-save-the-world-video%2F Kerry clearly takes “stupid is as stupid does” to an entirely different level. The guy is just…I don’t know. It’s comical. From earlier that day… Question: “Mr. Vice President, how does it feel to have your friend with you?” Joe Biden: “It feels great to have my friend with me, I can’t think of anybody I’d rather have.” John Kerry: “I’m thrilled to be back in Iowa. I love it.” https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1203019020959510528?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1203019020959510528&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F12%2Fjohn-kerry-joins-joe-biden-on-iowa-bus-tour-kerry-touts-biden-as-messianic-figure-who-can-save-the-world-video%2F If Biden is committing a gaffe, he’s not breathing. The guy thrives on making mistakes. The former VP recently did his best to explain the Second Amendment to his incredibly uninformed fanbase. He blabbered, “I believe in the second amendment but nobody says you can have a rounds — a magazine with a hundred clips in it — a hundred bullets in it. We protect geese more that we protect, no joke, you can only have three shotgun shells when you go shoot for geese. But, guess what, we protect geese better than we do our kids.” WATCH: [email protected] in New Hampshire: “We don’t have the courage to take on the NRA?

New York Police Officer Bites Into Sandwich, Finds a Razor Blade Stuffed In Between

Oh my goodness!!

There’s a 99% chance that this incident was 100% intentional. A person doesn’t just accidentally leave a razor blade right in the middle of a friggin’ sandwich. Who are we kidding? Is this not, if you really think about it, attempted murder? Shouldn’t it be treated that way, if proven the sandwich maker did what he or she did intentionally? What a shame. Why would anyone even want to be a police officer these days? It’s a lose-lose situation, with the mainstream media and Democrats constantly finding ways to tear them down. Thankfully, there still are brave men and women who are determined to uphold the rule of law and do their best to keep all of us safe. From New York Daily News: An NYPD cop got a sharp surprise when he bit into a sandwich at a Queens shop and cut his mouth on a rusty razor blade stuffed inside, police said. […] The cop, a 24-year veteran of the NYPD, cut the inside of his mouth on the razor as he chomped on the cheesesteak. He was taken to Nassau Community Medical Center for a minor wound. PHOTO: You have to be a special kind of person to support Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). Of course, “special kind of person” can be substituted for ignorant – and should be. AOC supporters aren’t bright, plain and simple. Why this freshman Democrat continues to receive so much attention makes little sense, but she just keeps doing anti-American things and getting away with it. God willing, a conservative will end her political career come next November. Check out her latest ridiculousness, via New York Post: Close to a thousand anti-police protesters descended on Downtown Brooklyn Friday night, blocking traffic, vandalizing a city bus and shouting obscene insults at NYPD cops. The demonstration…
