WASHINGTON (WNCN) – President Barack Obama’s bracket went down in flames last year, like so many others around the country.
An 11-year-old girl from Charlotte took notice and made sure the president knew his picks were terrible.
Emilia wrote to the president and said, “You are a great president, just not the best bracket picker.”
Obama couldn’t deny that his picks were less-than great in 2015. He had Villanova falling to Kentucky in the tournament finals. Ouch.
So he responded to Emilia.
He also sent a signed photo that included the note:
“Emilia — Next year I’ll check with you first!”
Will Emilia’s letter help Obama out with his 2016 bracket?
He has Kansas, Texas A&M, Michigan State, and UNC headed to the Final Four.
Obama thinks it is the Jayhawks’ year and has them going all the way.
