CBS News has more to say:
President Trump welcomed the LSU Tigers football team to the White House on Friday just days after they won college football's national championship. "The team is said to be one of the best ever, maybe the best ever," Mr. Trump said.
The president showed off the Resolute Desk and promised to take pictures with the team members and made reference to his impeachment with a curse.
"We'll take pictures behind the resolute desk," he said. "It's been there a long time — a lot of presidents — some good, some not so good. But you got a good one now. Even though they're trying to impeach the son of a bitch. Can you believe it?"
The team's victory against Clemson on Monday night capped one of the greatest seasons in college football history. Mr. Trump and first lady Melania Trump attended the championship game on Monday. LSU's Monday night 42-25 win in New Orleans marked the team's fourth national title in the school's history.
ABC News added:
President Donald Trump paid tribute to the national champion Louisiana State University football team on Friday, saying it would long be remembered as one of the greatest in college football history.
The undefeated Tigers visited the White House after defeating Clemson on Monday night in the college playoff final. Trump noted that the team played a “brutal schedule" during the season that included seven teams ranked in the top 10 and the schools that have won the last four national championships.
“You didn't have too many easy ones, but your explosive offense pushed every opponent from the breaking point and to the breaking point," Trump said.
Trump highlighted the work of several of the team's players, including quarterback Joe Burrow, saying of Burrow “we call him young Tom Brady."
Of the team's coach, Trump said he would have picked Ed Orgeron if he were casting actors for a movie. “Ed Orgeron did not let Louisiana down," Trump said.
Trump also noted that the team rallied around the team's offensive coordinator, Steven Ensminger, following a plane crash that killed his daughter-in-law, sports broadcaster Carley McCord, and four others, who were traveling to the team's Peach Bowl playoff game against Oklahoma.
