On Monday night, the White House released a statement from President Donald Trump in which POTUS announced that he was disinviting the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles from Tuesday’s scheduled White House visits. According to Trump’s statement, the Eagles disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.”
Following Trump pulling the invite — something that was most likely due to only a handful of players scheduled to appear — Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney responded, saying in a statement that Trump “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.”
