    Bill Murray, President Obama Talk Cubs, Sox at White House

    A Cubs fan and a Sox fan walk into the Oval Office… to talk about health care?

    That’s the theme of a new video tweeted out by the White House Sunday featuring President Barack Obama and Bill Murray.

    The video is aimed at reminding Americans that they can sign up for health care for 2017 until Dec. 15. But it also undoubtedly features a little Cubs-Sox fan rivalry.

    “Generally, I don’t let Cubs fans into the Oval Office,” Obama says at the beginning of the clip.

    But, in typical Murray style, the Cubs fan, decked out in his beloved team’s gear, is quick to respond.

    “It’s probably not a coincidence that your popularity is at an all-time high,” Murray says. “So I would just stick with this if I were you. I would just ride this baby.”

    He then turns his arm and begins pointing at the Cubs logo stitched on the side of his sweater.

    “It’s not going to happen,” Obama replies.

    The conversation takes place as the two play a friendly putting game in the office, trying to hit a golf ball into a glass on the ground.

    “It’s going to happen long before you make this putt,” Murray says before calmly hitting the ball right into the cup.

    Obama, however, struggles to make it.

    At one point, Murray bends down to pick up the ball, revealing that he is having knee problems, but he has no health insurance.

    “Well, look Bill, you don’t have to go without health insurance because these days days, because of the Affordable Care Act, anybody can get health insurance, and it doesn’t matter if you already have something wrong with you because insurance companies have to take you even if you have a pre-existing condition,” Obama says.

    Murray then asks if mental health is covered too and Obama confirms it is.

    “Remember to go to healthcare.gov, shop for health care between Nov. 1 and Dec. 15 if you want healthcare by January 2017,” Obama says.

    It’s not the first time Murray has brought his Cubs fandom to the White House.

    In October, the celebrity fan crashed a White House press briefing to announce that he believed the Cubs would win the World Series. And sure enough, that’s exactly what happened.
