President Donald Trump told reporters before the conclusion of the NBA Finals that neither the Warriors nor Cleveland Cavaliers would be invited to the White House this year after leaders from both teams said they would not be interested in attending. The Warriors proceeded to sweep the series to win their third title in four years.

This will be the second year in which the Warriors do not celebrate their championship with a White House visit, and the second year that they have instead received an invitation to visit the U.S. Capitol from Rep. Pelosi. Pelosi tweeted an invitation to the team last season; the Warriors instead performed community service and spent time with local kids during their trip to Washington.

The president has not welcomed an NBA champion to the White House and abruptly uninvited the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles from making their scheduled visit last week.

Poll finds nearly a Nixon level of support for impeaching Trump .
There is a truly remarkable number in the most recent CNN poll, conducted by SSRS and out this morning. In it, 42% of Americans say President Donald Trump should be impeached and removed from office. What makes it remarkable is that he's on par with President Richard Nixon, who 43% of Americans said should be impeached and removed from office in a March 1974 Harris poll. That was after the scale of Watergate came to light, but months before the House started to move against Nixon, who would go on to resign in August 1974 rather than be impeached.
