He said:

“You stayed in the fight. You were down so much from the national season to the postseason. I would think that the odds would have been pretty small… You have tremendous heart, maybe even greater heart. You stayed in the fight. I just want to congratulate everybody.”

He also explained the historical significance of the moment, while stating that the last time the capital witnessed a victory was during Calvin Coolidge’s reign.


The first lady’s appearance in the gorgeous navy coat brings to mind a similar outfit, which she rocked about a year ago, during her return trip from a Palm Beach resort where the first family enjoyed thanksgiving. 

However, in addition to the colorful collars, she sported a pair of red leather gloves, and knee-high black leather boots as she walked beside her husband.
