Get this, the Philadelphia mayor is MAD. He says that Trump "isn't a true Patriot", because he un-invited the Eagles to the White House party.

Story: www.foxnews.com...

Did mayor Jim Kenny insult the players who "took a kneee" and disrepected those who have died for our country? I bet he didn't.

It's amazing how much power a "snowflake" like Trump has over liberals! He's single-handedly preventing them from having the presence of mind to formulate any kind of coherent strategy to run this country again.


No Eagles took a knee last year.

Get this, Fox News has APOLOGIZED for airing FAKE NEWS lying about Eagles player kneeling during the anthem (they didn't!)
www.businessinsider.com...



"During our report about President Trump canceling the Philadelphia Eagles trip to the White House to celebrate their Super Bowl win, we showed unrelated footage of players kneeling in prayer. To clarify, no members of the team knelt in protest during the national anthem throughout regular or post-season last year. We apologize for the error."


Did Donald Trump insult players on the Eagles for "taking a knee" and disrepected those who have died for our country? He did!! Oops! Fake news!

It's amazing how much power a "snowflake" like Trump has over conservatives! He's single-handedly preventing them from having the presence of mind to formulate any kind of coherent strategy to run this country.

Really, Carewemust, see what I did there? Drop the partisan BS, drop the fox news propaganda, and wake up!

From Trump's twitter:

twitter.com...



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!


Also, more FAKE NEWS by Trump himself? Why?
No Eagles players stayed in the locker room during the national anthem!
Why did Trump IMPLY that they did? Strange!

So the POTUS uninvites the team that is based in a state that was one of the original thirteen colonies that helped make America great? The hypocrisy is strong in this one.

Only like four players were going to go anyways.
Trump just did the ol pre break up routine when he caught wind of the embarrassment to come.

"I swear it's not you it's me"
What a drama queen.

Trump is so petty!

Most Eagle players and their owner are petty. And this coming from an Eagles fan.

Philadelphia Mayor Kenney: President Trump disinviting the Eagles from the White House "only proves that our President is not a true patriot, but a fragile egomaniac obsessed with crowd size and afraid of the embarrassment of throwing a party to which no one wants to attend."

quoted for truth!!! LOL

fox news AND trump spread fake news that eagles players kneeled during the anthem when in fact NOT ONE eagle player took a knee or stayed in the locking room last year.

jesus, what a petty vindictive jack-ass he is. he doesn't care about facts.. how his supporters condone this is mind boggling.

how is the new stadium? is parking that bad? i read how snyder blocked off local streets that you could park on. im a redskins fan, but i only went to the old stadium.

i live by the meadowlands, and i go to events here, and there are secret local parking spots. BUT now, during football, those secret spots, are blocked off, and they have shuttles from them to the stadium, and charge 20 bucks.

that secret spot is still a 25 minute walk to the stadium, but saves us what, 40 bucks to park?

i also read there are no water fountains in the new stadium, is that true?

art monk, darrel green, thiesman, those are my favorite redskins. but so is RG3! lol

Heck, Independence Hall is in Philly. The Liberty Bell and all.

The NFL botched this one from jump street; the original sin was rubbing Trump’s nose in the USFL anti-trust litigation and he has never gotten past that.

This is a political winner for DJT. He’s squeezing blood from a turnip because the NFL’s commissioner is truly feckless . Again, I’m an NFL junkie and would be hard pressed to EVER give it up, but schadenfreude is real and I take a great deal of pleasure in watching ‘Jerruh’ and Goodell kiss the ring. My only hangup is that this is the Eagles and not the Cowpokes; the Cowpokes suffer from the same level of organizational dysfunction/malfeasance as anyone and would let this bleed into their season, on the other hand, the Eagles are a well-oiled machine that is unlikely to let politics affect their season.

Which players? Because if you were a fan you would know that is total bs. Probably the most charitable and community based team in football. Malcom Jenkins meets with police officers, community leadership events, youth, has been to congress, Chris long donated his entire salary, Carson Wentz is giving millions to charity and physical taking part in charity work, Ashlon Jeffrey gave a semi truck of toys to needy families during Christmas, it goes on and on.

They won the super bowl after 7 star players hurt had season ending injuries because they aren't shallow and are a band of brothers.

Are you trolling me? That #hole is 20+ years old and Dan Snyder would charge you to piss in a port-a-john — it’s a terrible ‘game day experience’ and that’s all on Snyder. I used to take a short stretch of 50 through SE D.C. (Anacostia) and would occasionally pass RFK trying to find my way, but that’s as close as I ever been to the old stadium. The old guard laments RFK’s game day experience and I heard that Jerry Garcia and the Dead were big fans of playing there. RFK Stadium is sadly missed.

D.C. city council will NEVER let Snyder bring a team back into the city with “Redskins” as the team name. Outside of Snyder funding the ENTIRE project, the Redskins will be playing in Maryland. Maybe somewhere off 66 in the Dulles area in Virginia. Wherever the new stadium is located, you can bet your last dollar Snyder will weasel himself into some ‘pay for play’ politics in having it sited.

The nfl is a silly game played by rich entitled elitists.

It's a disgrace how much those grown men get to play a game.

It's a disgrace how other grown men get so emotional over a game.

We should be paying doctors and teachers that kind of money.

I played football in school. I like playing it.

But the nfl is more like a cult than a fun game that people play.

So yes I hope trump brings them down a few pegs.


And just for the record I think it's great that the players are kneeling to bring attention to police violence.

Because Trump will say things to back his position even if there is no truth to it.

Here's something even more staggering... from the NFL Player's Association.
time.com...


"This decision by the White House has led to the cancellation of several player-led community service events for young people in the DC area."
WHAT!?!? Bullsnip!

Less than 10 players were attending the White House event and the rest of the team is still in the DC area all day today. How in the blue hell does cancellation of a White House visit which scarcely any of the team was going to be at anyway lead to the cancellation of community service events totally unrelated to the WH visit and unassociated with the White House. So, not only are many of the NFL players whiny little bitches, they are also liars.

The amount of respect the NFL has pissed away over the past 5 years between a horrible, horrible commissioner's office, Colin Kaepernick, the increase of thugs league-wide, bad rule changes, and now the epitome of prima-donna politically charged tantrums will bite them in the ass down the road. It's time for a professional rugby league in this country...
