Imagine that, President Donald Trump wants to do the job of the American people rather than mugging for the camera for ESPN’s NCAA tournament brackets. Trump will not fill out a, NCAA Tournament bracket like his predecessor did on a common basis. Honestly, other than doing late night comedy shows, filling out the brackets may have been the only thing that Obama seemed qualified to do as president. Obviously, we now have a serious individual in the White House who is looking to solve the problems of America’s economy and dealing with our enemies. The time for fun and games are over, that was the Obama administration, now we have real things to deal with and it’s adult, serious time in the White House.

It appears that President Trump is passing on March Madness. He will not continue his predecessor’s annual tradition of filling out an NCAA tournament bracket on ESPN.

The network reached out to Trump’s staff and invited the president to fill out a bracket on-camera, just as President Barack Obama had the past several years. The network recently received word that Trump has passed. An ESPN spokesman said in a statement: “We expressed our interest to the White House in continuing the presidential bracket. They have respectfully declined.”

White House spokeswoman Hope Hicks said in an email to The Washington Post: “We look forward to working with ESPN on another opportunity in the near future.” Neither the White House nor ESPN had any details on what other opportunities might lie down the road.

The news didn’t exactly come as a surprise to ESPN executives. They knew with a change of president, the annual feature might not continue. Obama hosted an ESPN crew each March and filled out brackets for both the men’s and women’s tournaments. Two of those brackets are now property of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History.
