Almora explains his hand gesture while at Oval Office


by - Senior Editor -

The Chicago Cubs visited the White House for the second time since they won their first World Series in over 108 years last season.

There was no press allowed to cover the event but here is a picture of some of the Cubs players meeting President Trump for the first time. The Cubs gave the President a Cubs jersey No. 45 with his name on it.

However, a picture of Albert Almora's hand has the Internet talking as it looked like he was flipping the bird in the oval office. Almora says that it wasn't the case at all.

"We laugh about it now," Almora Jr. told reporters. "But there were two fingers out there. Definitely two fingers."
