President Barack Obama has given up on March Madness.
“It’s over, it’s over,” Obama said dryly on Monday, when a 14-year-old wished the president success on his NCAA bracket at the White House Science Fair.
Sahil Doshi, a high school freshman, told Obama “good luck on your bracket,” as the teen exhibited a science project to Obama.
Obama’s bracket was dealt a crushing blow this weekend when Villanova suffered a surprising loss to NC State.
