Jill Biden is in the news for suggesting that both the LSU and Iowa women’s basketball teams should get a White House visit after the national championship game. While some viewers have criticized the questionable officiating and Reese’s celebration in the face of Caitlin Clark, it’s important to remember that both teams worked hard to get to the championship game.
Regardless of your politics, it’s clear that sports have the power to unite us all. Whether you’re a Republican or a Democrat, a fan of LSU or Iowa, we can all agree that these young women deserve recognition for their hard work and determination.
So let’s put politics aside and come together to celebrate the success of these athletes. Reese was named the Most Outstanding Player of the Tournament, and LSU won its first national title in program history. It’s time to show these young women the respect they deserve and honor their achievements with a White House visit.
