Barack Obama jokes about not wanting to host White House packers – NBC Chicago

Jokes of Obama not wanting to welcome the Packers to the White House originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

In October 2011, then-President Barack Obama invited the Chicago Bears, winners of the 1985 Super Bowl, to the White House for a visit.

The Bears’ 1985 trip to the White House was canceled due to the Space Shuttle Challenger tragedy. Thus, Obama invited them during his tenure in the White House.

But, the Packers visited the White House months before the Bears for their Super Bowl victory in 2011. Did Obama invite the Bears despite the Packers visit?

“It was tough having the Packers and being nice to them,” Obama said on the Manningcast.

The former president is a true Chicagoan. He is a bear and sports enthusiast. With that, he’s a known Packers anti-fan.

He mentioned his non-Chicago native on the show. The president was born in Hawaii and attended several universities, including Columbia University, Western University and Harvard Law.

It was not until 1985 that he moved to Chicago. He worked for a scholarship at the University of Chicago Law School and eventually served as an Illinois state senator. Afterwards, he became President of the United States.

But, more importantly, he is a Bears fan.
