The White House confirmed President Trump would be in attendance at Mercedes-Benz Stadium to watch the Georgia Bulldogs take on the Alabama Crimson Tide for the college football national championship. TMZ got super Georgia fan Quavo on the horn to ask if he has any words for his squad, knowing that they will be playing before the Commander-In-Chief, and his advice was pretty simple: just focus on the game.
"My message to the players is to focus on winning this national championship game. Don't worry about nothing else," the Migos rapper said when posed with a scenario where a player may be thinking about making a statement in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick.
The president is expected to attend in the company of Vice President Mike Pence's Chief of Staff, Nick Ayers, and First Lady Melania. Although Trump won both Georgia and Alabama, polls have shown his popularity to be low since his 2016 election victory for all but his very core supporters. And he has been a particularly unpopular figure among athletes, as seen when many of the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots skipped out on a visit to D.C. - as did the Golden State Warriors.
There was also significant drama over the possibility that the president would throw out the first pitch of the 2016 baseball season, and those plans wound up getting scuffed due to bad press. However, he did show up for the last Army vs. Navy game, so it wouldn't be the first time that Trump attends a college football game during his tenure in office.
