Cubs’ Albert Almora Shows Trump How To Make America No. 1 Again
June 28 / Rick Chandler / SportsGrid
Joe Maddon and a few members of the Cubs visited Donald Trump in the Oval Office on Wednesday -- an informal gathering arranged by the Ricketts family, who are big-time Republican donors. The team took plenty of heat on social media on Tuesday when it was announced, which is perhaps why they announced it only one day in advance.
But outfielder Albert Almora Jr. is now being hailed a hero by those same detractors after this photo appeared. Almora is denying that his intention was to flip of the President, but come on. If you're going to wear a Sears shirt and bluejeans to the Oval Office, you might as well go all the way and throw the bird at the guy with the 36 percent approval rating.
It happens in high school yearbook photos hundreds of times every June. He just got a chance to do it in the White House.
If Almora is slyly flipping Trump off in this picture he just replaced Andre Dawson as my favorite Cub of all time. https://t.co/pYuuyfXivW
