  • Eagles Won't Celebrate Championship At White House

The White House accused the Philadelphia Eagles of abandoning their fans after the team said less than 10 members would visit to commemorate their Super Bowl win with President Trump. An NFL source said none of the players on the Eagles team that won the Super Bowl took a knee during the anthem during the regular season - one player took a knee in the preseason but was cut before the regular season began.

"He's basically making a very simple request that when the National Anthem is played at a sporting event, people stand, and people respect that and I know everybody saying but nobody need, nobody - they're obviously are some hurt feelings over the new policy".

Trump says that the cumpulsory Public Display of Jingoism is with the national anthem, not "God Bless America", so jokes on you, libtards! The White House stated, "They disagree with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem", although no players on the team kneeled during the national anthem last season.

Speaking later in the interview, Jones suggested the rhetoric from the White House displayed an ignorance of the role African Americans have played throughout American history.


Trump said in a statement late on Monday that the Eagles, who defeated the New England Patriots in the NFL's Super Bowl in February, wanted to send a smaller delegation but that he declined.

Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins continued his war of rhetoric with President Donald Trump over the national anthem protests on Wednesday.

"To me, going to the White House had nothing to do with the anthem", said Long. Keep in mind that President Donald Trump attacked NFL protesting Players calling them SOB during an NFL Rant in Huntsville Alabama in 2017. "I think the fans deserve to see the Eagles with the president".

The decision to disinvite the whole team marks the end of speculations of whether the Eagles would attend the White House in some capacity. "I will be there at 3 p.m. with the United States Marine Band and the United States Army Chorus to celebrate America". Instead, the Warriors focused on education and community service during their February visit to the nation's capital.
