Obama is following 65 accounts on Twitter including the Chicago Bulls, Blackhawks, Bears and White Sox. He’s leaving out one Chicago sports Twitter account; the Cubs.

The President of the United States has always shown support for the south side baseball team, he even wore a White Sox jacket when he threw out the first pitch at the 2009 All-Star game.

In 2014, when Obama threw out the first pitch for the Washington Nationals, he wore a Nationals jacket, but put on his White Sox hat right before throwing the pitch.

If you found out one thing today, it’s that the President of the United States isn’t a Cubs fan.

The Cubs want to change this.
