It's another day in America, and another day that President Joe Biden and his administration were completely humiliated on the public stage.
According to the Washington Examiner, the national champion Georgia Bulldogs NCAA football team declined the president's invitation to visit the White House. The invitation, relative to invitations for other teams, was delayed by several months, sparking controversy.
As is typical, championship-winning teams in major sports are invited to the White House to be recognized at the highest levels.
The Bulldogs won their second-straight NCAA title in January.
Georgia's athletic association released a statement explaining why the team couldn't attend.
"The University of Georgia first received on May 3 an invitation for the Bulldog football team to visit the White House on June 12,” the statement read.
It added: "Unfortunately, the date suggested is not feasible given the student-athlete calendar and time of year."

Some originally believed that the president snubbed the team, as most teams receive an invite shortly after their win. At the time, a bipartisan group of Georgia's congressional delegates penned a joint letter to the White House, urging it to extend an invite, as is tradition.
"It is our hope that this repeat championship team can join the many teams prior that have been honored by the President," the group wrote shortly after the Bulldogs won the title. The invitation came months after the win, with some believing that the delay was purposeful.
Many across social media cheered the Bulldogs for refusing the invitation, with some claiming that politics absolutely played a role in the team's declining of the White House invite.
"Love this! National Champion Georgia Bulldogs Football not visiting Bidens White House. Cites school schedule conflicts. Truth is Biden administration just not that important to conservative Americans," one Twitter user wrote.
Another user added: "Why would anyone want to be seen at the White House with Joe Biden? Not me. Hail to the Georgia Bulldogs for skipping the visit."
Declining a White House invitation seems to be a growing trend, and it's certainly humiliating for the Biden administration, which is already struggling with terrible polling numbers and a total lack of confidence from the American people.
