President Trump Cancels Philadelphia Eagles White House Visit
Headline Roundup June 5th, 2018
After several Philadelphia Eagles players pulled out of an upcoming White House visit, President Trump disinvited the team, citing differences over National Anthem protests. Several publications have emphasized that no Eagles players kneeled during the anthem throughout the season, contrary to a Fox News report which incorrectly stated otherwise.
On Monday, President Trump disinvited the Super Bowl winning Philadelphia Eagles football team to the White House over an apparent disagreement over what players should be doing when the national anthem is played.
Fox News tried to run with Trump’s lies about the Eagles. It ended up insulting Christians.
There was God Bless America, but no Swoop the Eagle. The U.S. Marine Band was there, but neither quarterback Nick Foles, nor head coach Doug Pederson, nor any member of the 2018 Super Bowl winning team was at the White House Tuesday for what was to be a celebration of the Philadelphia Eagles victory.
