Apparently the 2019 LSU football season has made an LSU fan out of the leader of the free world.
President Donald Trump made a phone call to Larose native and LSU coach Ed Oregon this past week during Governor John Bel Edwards' trip to The White House for COVID-19 response.
This news was first reported in The Advocate in Baton Rouge.
Knowing Gov. Edwards and Orgeron are close friends, President Trump asked the Governor to put Coach O on the line.
The two chatted - much like they did after LSU won the National Championship in January. The President has complimented Orgeron multiple times since LSU's National Championship win, calling him a "great coach" and a "great leader."
President Trump said he hopes to attend LSU's game with Alabama in 2020 in Tiger Stadium.
