Michigan Wolverines Head Coach Jim Harbaugh has invited Barack and Michelle Obama to be honorary football captains during the 2017 season.
Michigan’s head coach said Saturday during his annual quarterbacks camp in Ann Arbor that he plans making a formal offer to both Barack and Michelle Obama to be honorary football captains in 2017.
Harbaugh, of course, has worked with Michelle Obama in the past on an educational initiative. He’s met the President and First Lady many times and has developed a relationship with both of them over the years.
“It was incredible. Spent 39 wonderful minutes with President Obama (last week), saw Mrs. Obama as well,” he said. “He was great. He’s relaxed, working on a lot of things. A book. He shared a lot of insights.
Barack and Michelle Obama are no longer living in the White House, but they remain the First Family to millions of Americans. Given Trump’s lack of popularity, Coach Harbaugh likely isn’t the only one who wants the Obama’s back. There are millions of Americans who would love to see the former president and first lady leading their country again.
The Obamas might be retired from politics, but there is an entire nation that wants to see them back on the national stage. Too bad, Barack and Michelle Obama can’t return to the White House and make Trump an “honorary president.”
