Donald Trump Cancels Philadelphia Eagles White House Visit

Donald Trump has disinvited Super Bowl champions the Philadelphia Eagles from their White House visit.

The football team was scheduled to visit the White House on Tuesday (June 5) to celebrate their win but Donald canceled the event after learning that only part of the team had agreed to attend.

“The Philadelphia Eagles are unable to come to the White House with their full team to be celebrated tomorrow. They 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. The Eagles wanted to send a smaller delegation, but the 1,000 fans planning to attend the event deserve better,” Donald said in a statement.

He added that fans are still welcome to attend and partake in a “different kind 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,” Donald said.

    Nobody cares. May as well cancel the traditions like these all together as long as he is in office because he will never get true black people and enlightened whites to come to the white house as long as he is in office. All he is doing is ensuring he will never be welcomed anywhere cool or fun after he is in office. Still trying tho figure out how he will manage to move back to NYC…..

    Trump is just trying to save face because once again he is reminded that no one likes him. This is all to familiar. Trump is afraid that Kim Jong-Un will cancel the summit first, so he gets on twitter and cancels the meeting. Or when Steph Curry and his teammates said that they were not going to the WH, Trump gots on twitter and “dis-invited” them even though they said that they weren’t going in the first place. Or when Trump lost the popular vote, so he claimed that many people voted illegally. I would say that Trump is acting like a toddler, but then that would be an insult to toddlers. How can the media and republicans continue to stand by and watch this disaster of a presidency? When will this end, it’s going to take years to undo the destruction caused by Trump and the republicans.

    The media is just as corrupt. Why do they continue to let Trump and Sarah Sanders spread lies? When Sarah opened her mouth to lie, the WH reporters should have walked out. Yet they just sit there and feed into Sarah’s propaganda. How can Trump dis-invite the Eagles when a majority of them had already decided that they weren’t going anyway? This wasn’t a disagreement over the kneeling. Many people have stated that the Eagles never kneeled. Why would they go to the WH when Trump called their peers who kneel SOB? Fans? What fans? There were not Eagles fans at the WH. Trump is a con artist. So when the WH and Trump refer to Eagles “fans” what they really mean is that Trump ordered ALL the WH employees and staff to bring their families to the WH.

    It’s time for Meuller to stop acting like a Republican and do his job. It was disappointing hearing that Mueller agrees with Guiliani that Trump can’t be indicted because he is the president and that he and Rosenstein told Trump that he wasn’t a target, and wasn’t going to be investigated in regards Cohen’s case and collusion. It’s time to indict Trump, his kids, and Jared.
