The NFL may be getting a fair share of the President's attention recently, but on Tuesday morning it was the NHL's turn.
The PIttsburgh Penguins took part in the semi-traditional White House appearance on Tuesday, visiting with President Donald Trump ahead of Wednesday night's game against the Capitals.
The event took place despite mounting controversy surround the tradition, as the Golden State Warriors and University of North Carolina Mens Basketball team both skipped out on the event in protest.
Trump has, however, met with the New England Patriots, Clemson's Football Team, and the Chicago Cubs after they won their respective titles.
Trump even took a moment to weigh in on the Penguins' rivalry with the Capitals:
"I know you have a really big early season matchup tomorrow night against the rival Washington Capitals," the President said to a mix of laughter and boos.
He then turned around to the Pittsburgh coaches and players and asked, "Are they tough? What do you think? Are they tough?"
