UNC team skipping White House visit due to schedule conflict

UNC team skipping White House visit due to schedule conflict”

"We couldn't find a date that worked for both parties", a North Carolina spokesman told the Raleigh News and Observer.

School officials said the two sides tried to make "eight or nine" different dates work, however they were unable to come to an agreement. Back in March, Williams commented on President Trump's tweets after an ACC tournament game.

President Donald Trump's recent attack on NFL players who have protested during the National Anthem has set the Internet ablaze with controversy.

"Now everybody has got social media, and we don't need The New York Times to find out what in the dickens is going on in our country", Williams said in May. "You know, our president tweet out more bulls- than anybody I've ever seen".

"Wouldn't you love to see one of these National Football League owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, say: 'Get that son of a b-- off the field right now. Out".

Roy Williams and the Tar Heels are not going to the White House. First the great doofus had to hastily pretend to disinvite the NBA champion Golden State Warriors, and now the 2017 NCAA champion North Carolina men's basketball team will be declining their own invitation.

The UNC 2017 national championship team is not going to the White House.

However, North Carolina's statement, making the point that they "would have liked to have gone", seems to suggest the decision was free of a political motive.
