Cry, Eagles, Cry…

President Trump has rescinded the Philadelphia Eagles’ invitation to visit the White House after only ten players agreed to attend. This may be the happiest day of my life.

Less than 24 hours before the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles were set to visit the White House, President Donald Trump rescinded their invitation, citing national anthem protests and boycotts from some team members.

“[The Eagles] disagree with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country,” Trump said in a statement released Monday evening. “The Eagles wanted to send a smaller delegation, but the 1,000 fans planning to attend the event deserve better.”

Trump said Eagles fans are invited to the White House “to be part of a different type of ceremony — one that will honor our great country, pay tribute to the heroes who fight to protect it, and loudly and proudly play the National Anthem.”

I stopped watching the NFL in 2017 and have never gone back. With a few exceptions – Carson Wentz, Nick Foles, and very few others – this team is chock full of thugs, malcontents, and leftists. Their political stances show contempt not only for the president, but for a majority of their fans. Sadly, many Eagles fans are brainwashed, and not enough have figured out this team couldn’t care less about its fans.

  1. I see your mayor has his panties all in a twist over this deal. He has no problem with the Eagles dissing the president but heaven forbid, the president call the Eagles out on their childish, immature, unpatriotic behavior. Kudos to Trump!

  2. Well done Mr. President. It is long past due that the Silly Juvenile Whiners get their comeuppance. And doing it with a tribute to our armed forces is just icing on the cake.

    God Bless America! God Bless our President!

  3. Ronni – Jim Kenney is the worst mayor in my lifetime. The man is to the left os Bernie Sanders, without the charm.

    TXNick – Amen. The sad part if many fans booked hotels to see the event, then the team decides they are only sending ten reps to the White House. They’re screwing their own fans. It’s high-larious!

  4. The sad part is this team had plans to go to events for the local children in DC, but with the President cancelling their small attendance, they decided to cancel the events, too.

  5. MelP – Exactly. Not that the team will care. They are apparently doing a media tour today to tell “their side” of the story. I guess that means they’ll tell everyone they aren’t the problem; the president is.
