The Golden State Warriors, who have spoken out against the current administration and collectively decided not to visit the White House after winning the past two NBA championships did visit a president during a Thursday trip to Washington D.C., but it wasn’t Trump.

Before thumping the magic-less Wizards 126-118, the team met with former President Barack Obama in his office for about an hour.

“It was amazing,” Warriors All-Star forward Kevin Durant said following visit and the win.

Steph Curry, who has become friendly with President Obama, reportedly arranged the visit.

Following the game, Curry chatted with House of Representatives speaker Nancy Pelosi

She also chatted with Draymond Green.

Golden State coach Steve Kerr, who usually does not hold back when discussing the current President, did not elaborate very much when asked about visiting Obama but did say he was “happy” with how it went.
