Eagles Tried To Embarrass Trump, He Responds By Brutally Embarrassing Them

By on

The Eagles had this coming, they really did. When you go out of your way to embarrass the President of the United States, you embarrass your country as well and you make an absolute fool of yourself. I don’t blame President Trump for doing this in the least. Trump officially disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after their Super Bowl win because of their position on the National Anthem controversy. “The Philadelphia Eagles are unable to come to the White House with their full team to be celebrated tomorrow,” the statement from the President read.

“They disagree with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem,” he added, “hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” That makes the team look like unpatriotic jerks, to say the least. “The Eagles wanted to send a smaller delegation, but the 1,000 fans planning to attend the event deserve better,” Trump explained. “These fans are still invited to the White House to be a 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 will be there at 3:00 p.m. with the United States Marine Band and the United States Army Chorus to celebrate America,” the statement concluded. Trump tweeted, “Honoring America! NFL, no escaping to Locker Rooms!”

I’m sure you have heard that the NFL recently handed down a rule banning kneeling protests during the National Anthem, but allowed players to stay in the locker room during the performance if they didn’t want to stand. A number of football players cried foul over this and criticized the league for it. They whined over a perceived violation of their rights, but private entities can hire/fire at will and frankly, Americans are tired of seeing their nation, flag, heroes and President disrespected like this. The Eagles are throwing the equivalent of a temper tantrum and America is not impressed. Not in the least.

Turn about is fair play here and the Eagles richly earned being embarrassed by President Trump. And he did so brutally. You do not want to tick this man off. He’s not some weak-kneed fanboy that caves over threats from others. Speaking of which, this is where the mayor of Philadelphia comes into the picture.

“The Eagles call the birthplace of our democracy home, so it’s no surprise that this team embodies everything that makes our country and our city great,” said Mayor Jim Kenney (D) in the statement. “Their athletic accomplishments on the field led to an historic victory this year,” he continued. “Fans all across the country rallied behind them because we like to root for the underdog and we feel joy when we see the underdogs finally win. I’m equally proud of the Eagles’ activism off the field.”

The Dem continued, “These are players who stand up for the causes they believe in and who contribute in meaningful ways to their community,” Kenney added. “They represent the diversity of our nation – a nation in which we are free to express our opinions. Disinviting them from the White House only proves that our President is not a true patriot,” Kenney charged, “but a fragile egomaniac obsessed with crowd size and afraid of the embarrassment of throwing a party to which no one wants to attend. City Hall is always open for a celebration,” he concluded. Good… let them go there. Maybe they can all get on their knees while they celebrate. Seems only fitting, don’t you think?

It’s true that none of the Eagles’ players knelt last season during the playing of the National Anthem. But it doesn’t excuse insulting the White House and the President over a populist stance that should be done outside of the grid iron and personally, not as a team. Less than ten of their team members were planning on going to the White House for this event and that’s a slap in the face to the President of the United States. It’s just unconscionable. Being invited to the White House is an honor. This isn’t pettiness on Trump’s part. It’s principled and I applaud him for telling them to take a hike. And this isn’t the first time Trump has done it either. It’s nice to have a President who actually has a spine for a change.

The President has long advocated that all NFL players should stand during the National Anthem after widespread kneeling protests, first initiated by quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Kaepernick and other players who knelt maintained they were protesting police brutality in the U.S. against African Americans. That’s not what this was ever really about. These are racist radicals who want special treatment and who hate the law and authority. The mayor of Philly and the Eagles wanted to embarrass the President with a small gathering. All they did is beclown themselves and act like spoiled, entitled millionaire crybabies who aren’t getting their way. Too freaking bad.
