President Obama Weighs In On World Cup, And, Of Course, LeBron

President Obama said LeBron James’ return to Cleveland will “be brutal,” and that FIFA made the wrong decision on the 2022 World Cup, while speaking to reporters outside the White House today.

“But I continue to be optimistic that our [World Cup] team – wherever we’re playing – is gonna make it to the finals next time out,” he said.

The president also said that today, doctors removed stitches from the lip he busted playing basketball.
