President Barack Obama is a big basketball fan, so he fills out an NCAA tournament bracket for ESPN each year. This year, for some reason, teams seem to be taking his picks to heart.
Cameras were rolling in the locker room after N.C. State upset No. 1 seed Villanova on Saturday night and Wolfpack guard Anthony “Cat” Barber evidently wasn’t too pleased that the President picked Villanova to move on to the Sweet 16.

“The [expletive] is wrong with Barack Obama?” Barber asked his teammates.

It was clearly a playful moment in a winning locker room, but it’s still pretty funny that was the first thing that came to Barber’s mind after his team pulled out one of the biggest upsets of the tournament.
Barber isn’t the first one to call out the President this weekend. Georgia State head coach Ron Hunter joked that he hopes Obama makes better decisions in office than he did when he picked Baylor to beat Georgia State.
It ain’t easy being the President.
