President Trump says the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles will not visit the White House today. Trump says the team disagrees with the President's belief in standing for the national anthem.
According to the New York Times, White House officials revealed that less than 10 members of the Super Bowl champion team were planning to attend. Either way, Eagles fans who were set to attend the ceremony are still invited for a celebration “that will honor the country and pay tribute to those who fight to protect it.”
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports most, if not all, of the Eagles black players had decided against making the trip – and Zach Berman of “The Philadelphia Inquirer" is reporting fewer than 10 players planned on attending the event to the White House.
Of course, quarterback Colin Kapernick started all this by kneeling during the national anthem, but HE was protesting police violence against blacks....I'll venture a guess most of the NFL players taking the knee since don't even know the issue Kapernick was protesting. They're just lemmings.
