Unlike President Trump, Barack Obama went ahead and filled out a men’s and women’s NCAA bracket.
This year he has UNC pulling it out in the men’s category – the fourth time he’s picked them since 2009 – and UCONN in the women’s. (Note: His bracket was busted mid-way through the first round like 99.9 percent of all other brackets. Thanks, Middle Tennessee.)
Televising his bracket picks was a tradition the former president and ESPN basketball analyst Andy Katz began at the beginning of Obama’s first term. ESPN first reached out to President Trump this year, but the president declined.
