Bill Murray Pulls a Bill Murray At White House Press Conference

+

Bill Murray the man, the IRL manifestation of Bill Murray the meme, Bill Murrayed again this week, when he made a surprise appearance in the White House Press Briefing room on Friday. Decked out in Chicago Cubs gear, Murray took questions from the press about his favorite team’s chances.

“I feel very confident that Clayton Kershaw is a great, great pitcher, but we got too many sticks,” Murray said when asked about the team.

President Obama, like Murray, is from Chicago, but supports the team across town.

“He was wearing a Cubs jacket, which for a White Sox fan is a little troubling,” Obama said later.

Murray was in town for an appearance on Sunday, where he will accept the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. Check out the video below.
