Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Chris Archer tweeted President Obama to see if he was available to meet up, grab a coffee and hang out in Cuba.
When the president didn’t respond, Archer went to the next best thing: the First Lady. The pitcher even put in a smiley face emoji to entice the First Lady to meet up.
Sadly, neither one of them responded to Archer’s tweets.
However, Archer did get to meet the first family at the ballpark, where they chatted at length.
According to the Sporting News, Archer got an explanation from Michelle Obama, but is still hoping for a Twitter response.
“The First Lady said they can’t get back to everybody,” Archer said. “A lot of times it’s other people actually checking it for her, because they don’t have time to scroll through Twitter. They have, first of all, a family, and they’re running the country, but it was all playful and hopefully I get a response and if not, I’m totally content with the interaction today.”
Archer has not heard back from the Obamas on Twitter. Yet.
