(WTNH)–We all know that President Obama’s got jokes.
The president will get a chance to bust a few more out this Tuesday, May 10, when he welcomes the UConn women’s basketball team back to the White House, in honor of their 2016 national championship.
UConn capped off its fourth straight national title with an 82-51 win over Syracuse in April, ensuring that the Huskies will be the only women’s basketball team to be honored as champs in the White House during President Obama’s second term in office.
Last year, Obama joked that the Huskies were “now certified to give White House tours,” and said that the tradition of hosting UConn was becoming “like the annual Christmas tree lighting.”
He also joked that Geno Auriemma was a “frequent visitor” and that “if you get here again, we might have to name the White House basketball court after you.”
It should be interesting to see what the president has to say about UConn’s latest visit, though like everyone else, he may be left speechless by the Huskies’ dominance.
