This is when you think petty. The President has decided, less than 24 hours, to disinvite the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House. Now, I don't think many of the players have a big issue with that, since many of them said they wouldn't attend anyway. But according to TMZ, Trump decided the Super Bowl victory for the Eagles was off. Instead, he will have the United States Marine Band and United Army Chorus playing the national anthem. How ironic since many NFL players have decided to take the knee to the anthem. Now that's being petty. The team was supposed to attend the White House today. The President said the team disagrees with their President because he insists they stand for then anthem. Okay. Meanwhile, the Eagles responded on their Twitter basically saying it's been a great ride and the team is getting ready for the 2018 season. Yeah, I think the President has made more enemies after that.
The Philadelphia Eagles Football Team was invited to the White House. Unfortunately, only a small number of players decided to come, and we canceled the event. Staying in the Locker Room for the playing of our National Anthem is as disrespectful to our country as kneeling. Sorry!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 5, 2018
We will proudly be playing the National Anthem and other wonderful music celebrating our Country today at 3 P.M., The White House, with the United States Marine Band and the United States Army Chorus. Honoring America! NFL, no escaping to Locker Rooms!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 5, 2018
