For the eighth year in a row, Barack Obama made his NCAA Tournament picks with ESPN’s Andy Katz on Wednesday, and you know what that means…angry people on the internet calling out the president for wasting time filling out a bracket!

Now, to be clear, this is a totally ridiculous line of criticism because the commander in chief is allowed some down time, and if he wants to spend it on ESPN picking Hawaii to beat Cal because he’s a homer and then hardly picking any other upsets the rest of the tournament, that’s his prerogative.

Anyway, on to the disgruntled. We’ll start benign.
