EAGLES EAT CROW: Super Bowl Champs Try to Punk President – Trump Hits Them Back TWICE AS HARD
Super Bowl Champs Try to Punk President – Trump Hits Them Back TWICE AS HARD
On Monday night President Trump cancelled the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles visit to the White House on Tuesday.
The president cancelled the visit after most players on the team decided not to attend the event.
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!

On Tuesday afternoon we learned why President Trump cancelled the team’s visit to the White House.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters on Tuesday the Eagles football team changed their commitment at the last minute from 80 players down to 2-3 players and a mascot.
They thought they would get one over on President Trump.
Instead President Trump hit them twice as hard.
Trump celebrated the US National Anthem and the US military instead.
