During an event of meet and greet with the World Series champions and President Donald Trump, one of the Chicago Cubs showed his middle finger to the president, on Wednesday.
Albert Almora flipped the middle finger while standing close to the president, even though his hands were in his pocket, it’s pretty clear that he was showing his middle finger. Chicago Sun Times took a photo of that incident and later posted on Twitter.
Almora, before the event, said to the news agency that he was excited to meet the president. He stated: “I just look at it as it’s not every day you get to meet the President of the United States. And in a year, I get to meet two.”
Trump offered them a warm welcome, he also talked with Joe Maddon, the manager ad called the Cubs a “great team.”
The team gave the President a jersey with the number “45” because he is the 45th president of United States.
As Maddon said the visit was a voluntary, and out of respect for the Ricketts family, which owns the Cubs and donated to Trump’s campaign.
Trump proposed Ricketts to be the deputy secretary of commerce in the administration last November, but Ricketts turned him down because he did not corresponded with ethic demands connected to his business holdings.
Almora showed much more respect in January when the Cubs visited Obama, after winning the World Series, wearing a suit, which was not what he wore when he met President Trump.
Please share this post on Facebook if you think Almora acted disgracefully.
