Super Bowl LIV was quite an event this year. Not only were the commercials better than normal, but Jennifer Lopez and Shakira put on a highly controversial overly sexualized halftime show.
Then there was the actual game which had a wild finish. The Kansas City Chiefs were trailing 20-10 going into the 4th quarter and then Patrick Mahomes rallied his team back to defeat the San Francisco 49ers 31-20.
And this Super Bowl winning coach said this about attending the White House if invited by President Trump.
They often describe talented people as, for example “the comedian’s comedian,” or “the actor’s actor,” as a way of letting people know that this is the person that the others in the craft really admire.
For a long time both Louis CK and Dave Chappelle were considered the comedian’s comedian. Chappelle is one of those naturally gifted comedians who would start a set at 4am and would draw a huge crowd of other comedians at that odd hour.
The actor’s actor includes Daniel Day-Lewis, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Gary Oldman. You name any gifted actor and their idol is one of these three names.
But former President Barack Obama was Hollywood’s president. Hollywood celebrities, superstar athletes, musicians, etc. all loved Obama and you could tell he loved the attention. He would host basketball games at the White House and any time a team won a championship, they couldn’t wait for the invite.
It’s really unfair to President Trump because although most of the aforementioned people loved Obama, they despise our current president.
However, some championship teams over the last three years do come to the White House per Trump’s invite. It seems as though as we get deeper into Trump’s presidency, more and more teams are beginning to realize that he’s been great for America.
And when asked postgame of this year’s Super Bowl, Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid revealed he would definitely go.
Reid said it would be “quite an honor” to visit the president.
At the postgame press conference he said, “I mean, I’ll be there. I’ll be there. If they’re inviting us, I’ll be there. It’s quite an honor, I think.”

Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill, who says he has never been to Washington, DC also said, “That would be great,” when asked if he would go.
And Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu views a potential White House visit as a chance to represent the Kansas City “the right way.”
He explained, “I’m here to represent the Kansas City Chiefs. I think my teammates feel the same way. Any time we get the opportunity to represent Kansas City the right way, represent our teammates the right way, I don’t see any wrong in that.”
President Trump took to social media after the Super Bowl to congratulate the Chiefs and in his tweet he accidentally thanked the entire state of Kansas even though the city is in Missouri. It was such an innocuous innocent mistake and yet liberals acted as though he committed a hate crime against Chiefs fans.
But clearly the Chiefs players and head coach didn’t care. And they’ll probably joke about it when the Chiefs arrive at the White House to celebrate.
