The Philadelphia Eagles’ Super Bowl Celebration at the White House was abruptly canceled by Trump due to controversy over standing for the National Anthem at NFL games, according to CNN.
“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,” Trump tweeted Monday night after his original statement went out earlier in the day.
Far as its known, it didn’t appear that any of the players for the Eagles participated in protests of the kneeling sort although some did express support for the actions of Colin Kaepernick and others over their right to protest. Eagles players Torrey Smith took Trump’s statement to task and said the obvious.
Instead of hosting the Eagles, the White House will host an event Tuesday (June 5) honoring the National Anthem at 3PM ET.
Good luck on that, President Trump.

whthershey209 I wouldn’t be mad if trumps middle school antics caused him to cancel a trip to the White House. It’s not like obama there.
mr_tmason Trump tried to flip to make it seem as if he denied their invite. He knew the eagles wasn’t going to show up. Anything for media attention and to cover his mess ups
prettiebrownthang He’s a giant toddler.
tree_bri How can you uninvite somebody who never wanted to come anyway 🤔 he just wanted to flip it to make it seem like he was doing something… sir nobody cares 🤷🏻♀️
jo49st They weren’t coming anyway. Says he’s gonna have an event for the fans, what fans? We’ll have battery filled snowballs waiting for him!
_natural_dope_chick He just wanted to cancel before they did the sad part is this team actually had player’s that wanted to go visit him
