Bill Murray Crashes White House Press Room To Talk Chicago Cubs

Funny man Bill Murray has never been one to shy away from crashing a good time ― engagement photos, bachelor parties, kickball games, you name it.

But on Friday, the actor and comedian took his legendary spontaneity to new heights when he turned up in the White House briefing room decked out in Chicago Cubs gear. 

“So, you can actually sort of lean on it,” Murray said as he approached the lectern.

Asked if he thought his beloved Cubs would defeat the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday to clinch their first World Series appearance since 1945, Murray said Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw is a “great, great pitcher,” but the Cubs “got too many sticks.”

“And at home, with our crowd, the weather,” he said. “We also, we get a little bit of autumnage in Chicago. You don’t get that in Los Angeles. Trees just die in Los Angeles. In Illinois, they flourish.”
