Bill Murray, who has a knack for turning up in unexpected placescrashed the White House press briefing on Friday, because why not? Murray, who was in Washington, D.C. receiving the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor from President Obama, took the podium and addressed the (mostly empty) room. He even fielded a question about the Cubs’ chances of winning the World Series. Turns out, he’s an optimist.

Notably, Murray didn’t even blink at being called “Mr. President.” Now there’s an idea for 2020.
