The last group of visitors that President Obama will entertain in the White House will apparently be the Chicago Cubs. A source has confirmed that the Cubs will visit the President at the White House on Monday, January 16th to celebrate their World Series championship before he leaves office on January 20th.
Obama invited the Cubs to the White House immediately after they won the World Series through a phone call to Cubs manager Joe Maddon as well as sending this tweet.
It happened: @Cubs win World Series. That's change even this South Sider can believe in. Want to come to the White House before I leave?

Apparently the Cubs have finally taken him up on his offer. Since most of the team will be in town for this weekend’s Cubs Convention, travel plans were made for the team to leave Chicago on Sunday and visit President Obama in Washington D.C. on Monday.
As a Cubs fan, I can say that I’m ecstatic the team has made this decision and I promise you it has nothing to do with my political affiliation. I could honestly care less if Trump was the one who welcomed the Cubs but the fact that it’ll be Obama hosting the Cubs is just a bit sweeter in my eyes.
I’m happy they’re doing this because I know how much Obama LOVES the White Sox and I can’t wait to see the President of the United States of America/die-hard White Sox fan hold up a beautifully crafted “Cubs 16” white and blue pinstriped jersey in front of the team and the entire nation.
God Bless America.
