LSU Tigers Accept White House Invitation Amid Controversy

The Louisiana State University (LSU) Tigers have accepted President Joe Biden's invitation to the White House, following their recent championship win. The news comes despite comments from team member Angel Reese suggesting that they celebrate with the Obamas instead. The university has since confirmed their intention to accept the invitation.

Reese took to social media after her initial comments, calling them "a joke" and adding that she never intended for it to become a point of contention. She also mentioned that the LSU Tigers did not want First Lady Jill Biden in their locker room before or after games but provided no further explanation behind these statements.

No date has been set for the visit, as it remains unclear if any issues between Reese and administration officials will be resolved beforehand.

In related news, The Daily Show mocked First Lady Jill Biden's attempt at inviting both winning and losing teams of women's college basketball championships on Thursday night. Comics accused her of promoting "racism" and "sexism." Guest host Roy Wood Jr., meanwhile, criticized participation trophies by claiming: "Nobody likes participation trophies!" He later added his thoughts about racism during his segment as well.
