The Chicago Cubs visited the White House and Donald Trump yesterday, taking pictures with the leader of the United States. Well, one Cubs player, Albert Almora Jr., decided show what he thought of our president by flipping the bird during a photo session.
Almora, backed by a teammate, issued a denial as reporters gathered around him when the Cubs played the host Washington Nationals later in the day.
One player yelled at the media gathering, “There was two fingers! Look closely, there was two fingers!” according to CSN Chicago.
“Guys were giving me a hard time about it,” Almora said, “but I pointed out the second finger. We’re all good.”
Almora called the incident “unfortunate.” “I would never do that to the president of the United States,” he said, per the Chicago Sun-Times. “I respect everybody. It is what it is. We laugh about it now, but there’s definitely two fingers out there.”
Lets hope Almora’s taxes are in order.
