The national champion Ohio State Buckeyes are in Washington D.C. Monday morning, and in just a few hours, they'll make their way to the White House to officially be congratulated by President Barack Obama on winning the inaugural College Football Playoff. The leader of the free world may, however, want to make sure he has an extra body guard on staff before they arrive.

OSU running back Ezekiel Elliott and his teammates enjoy trolling people when they're live on television, using a move called "salmoning." Basically, the way we understand it, the perpetrator moves his hand back and forth to mimic a salmon swimming, before poking or tickling the subject right at the end. Elliott, on Twitter, suggested that he's planning on figuring out a way to do it to Obama this afternoon.

If @EzekielElliott doesn't salmon @BarackObama today, was the trip to the White House even worth it?

Here's video of Elliott doing it to the president of the Sugar Bowl live on television.

We hope he pulls it off, and somehow isn't attacked in the process.
