Trump Assails News Media for Coverage of First Lady

  • Super Bowl

Long, victor of the NFL Players Association community MVP, said sometimes people who are affected by the issues or don't know much about the subject, they don't want to hear about it. At least one specifically cited the president's criticism of players who kneel. If you focus on who is saying the right things, you shouldn't get lost in the noise that's going on right now. The Eagles safety, who has been a vocal advocate for social justice, felt like talking wasn't getting his point across.

In a second tweet, Trump asserted that four reporters had seen his wife in the White House last week "walking merrily along to a meeting".

There was at least one common theme - a united front. He instead implored Americans to always stand for the national anthem.

Of course, not a single Eagles player kneeled during the national anthem before any game last season, and players denied the national anthem debate had anything to do with the decision for many players not to attend. President Trump urged owners to fire any player who demonstrates during the anthem and the Eagles, none of whom knelt during the regular season, were outspoken in their civic activism.

Defensive end Chris Long shook his head and said, "We love our fans".


Also Wednesday, hockey player Devante Smith-Pelly said he would skip a White House visit if the Washington Capitals win the Stanley Cup.

I'm sure the Philadelphia Eagles players have their reasons for not wanting to attend a ceremony at the White House. Instead of responding to what they were asking, Jenkins continued with his own message - holding up multiple signs with messages and statistics on juvenile incarceration, use of force by law enforcement, and activism by National Football League players.

"The White House, despite sensing a lack of good faith, nonetheless attempted to work with the Eagles over the weekend to change the event format that could accommodate a smaller group of players", the statement read in part.

"An opportunity, I think, was floated around as an idea", Jenkins said of a sit-down with President Donald Trump. It's a cowardly act to cancel the celebration because the majority of the people don't want to see you. I think far too many people stick to their little bubbles and they don't open their minds to different viewpoints. "You don't need to be out there, you can be in the locker room".

The WNBA champion Minnesota Lynx were not invited to the White House to celebrate their most recent title, something James called "laughable".
