PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Everyone is talking about Carson Wentz these days. Even, the President of the United States.

“I am a Bears fan,” the President continued. “We play Philly next Monday night. So I got to stick with my team but I am going to scout out what all the fuss is about.”

Of course, Philadelphians hit the President with some boo birds for that.
