Obama calls Murray's Cubs jacket: "A little troubling"


by - Senior Editor -

Famous actor and diehard Cubs fan Bill Murray was at the White House on Friday afternoon and had on his Chicago Cubs gear on.

Murray was at the White House to receive the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor on Sunday from President Obama and decided to crash the end of a press briefing. Murray said that the Cubs had "too many sticks" in their high octane offense for the Dodgers. He also said that trees "flourish" in Illinois but "just die" in Los Angeles.

"He was wearing a Cubs jacket — which for a White Sox fan is a little troubling," Obama said to reporters.
