No, that Cubs player wasn’t flipping off the President of the United States

Albert Almora wasn’t trying to become a folk hero or a villain. The camera was playing tricks.

This ... no, this isn’t what it looks like. Right? RIGHT?

No, it isn’t what it looks like. When you zoom in, it sure looks like Albert Almora’s index finger is also out.

Almora is just a dude who likes to have finger guns at his hips at all times. So while it would be extremely good for content and page views if we could run an article titled, “CUBS PLAYER FLIPS OFF PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP,” we cannot do so.

As you were, internet. As you were.
