Biden welcomes World Series champion Dodgers to the White House, nixing Trump-era drama

Sports can be a great way to help you heal from a crisis. It helps us to feel that things will be alright. He said that things will get better. Feeling, sensing, and experiencing something familiar for a few hours every day. Normal. It's something that is normal in the midst of chaos. It was a belief that we would get back to everything that was lost. We'd be back to it very soon.Biden's comments were nonpartisan, and the Dodgers visit was amicable. These are markedly different from many of Trump's ceremonies for champion sports teams hosted at the White House over the past four year. These events were cultural flashpoints that often intersected with controversial issues like politics, protests, and race under the previous administration.A month after his famous both sides assessment of the white supremacist rally at Charlottesville, Va., Trump launched a campaign against professional football players who kneel during the national anthem. He also disinvited Steph Curry (star of the NBA championship-winning Golden State Warriors) from attending a White House ceremony.Curry had already stated that he wouldn't take part in the traditional event. LeBron James, then with the Cleveland Cavaliers, responded to the controversy calling Trump a bum who doesn't understand the power he has for leading this beautiful country.Trump also forbade the Philadelphia Eagles to travel to the White House in 2018, a day before they were due to arrive, after it became apparent that only a few of the champion NFL players planned to attend. Even before the 2018 NBA Finals between the Cavaliers & the Warriors was settled, Curry and James both declared that they would not be visiting Trump's White House for the traditional meeting.Megan Rapinoe, a U.S. soccer player, said that she would not be going to the White House if the American women's team won the FIFA Womens World Cup in June 2019. Trump responded by attacking her on Twitter and inviting all squads players to attend the White House.Only a small portion of the MLB champion Boston Red Sox team made it to Washington in 2019, however. Nearly all of the players of color missed the ceremony, even Alex Cora, a Puerto Rico native, who criticised the administration's handling of Hurricane Relief efforts in the U.S. territory.However, there were no signs of political conflict at Friday's event, which was also attended California House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. Biden did mention friction in the first family, and the split loyalty between the second couple regarding professional baseball.When you talk about mixed family I have a mixed one, and she has a mixed one, based on sports and baseball, Biden stated in reference to the vice-president, who is a fan the San Francisco Giants. The second man supports the Dodgers.I won't mention the team from northern California, San Francisco. Biden also said that I won't mention the Philadelphia team. From her belt buckle to her shoes, my wife is a Philly girl. If I want to root for anyone other than the Phillies, Ill be sleeping alone in the Lincoln Bedroom.
