LOOK: Cavs owner Dan Gilbert crashes Chicago Cubs' White House visit
Nobody can seem to explain why Gilbert was there with the World Series champs
President Donald Trump greeted the 2016 World Series champion Chicago Cubs at the White House on Wednesday, and all of the usual suspects were there: Reigning National League MVP Kris Bryant, Cubs manager Joe Maddon and ... Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert?
Yup, that's Gilbert standing right there, stage right.
And just in case you might be thinking it was a Gilbert impersonator, the official report from the visit confirmed that it was actually the Cavs owner.
Nobody on social media can seem to figure out why Gilbert was there or how he got in.
The Cubs came back from a 3-1 deficit to beat the Indians in the World Series, so maybe Gilbert feels some sort of a connection because his Cavs also came back from 3-1 down to beat the Warriors in 2016? Or maybe he's just trying to troll the Cubs for beating a Cleveland team.
Either way, people are very confused.
