President Trump set the world ablaze on Monday when he announced that he was disinviting the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles to the White House for an official visit.
Mainstream media pundits and elected officials criticized the president for withdrawing his invitation. One of the most vocal critics was Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney. His office released a scathing, hate-filled statement:
“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. Their athletic accomplishments on the field led to an historic victory this year. 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. These are players who stand up for the causes they believe in and who contribute in meaningful ways to their community. 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, 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,” said Kenney.”
Sports stars also jumped into the fake outrage surrounding the revocation of the invitation.
Despite the grandstanding from the liberal mayor, sports stars and media personalities, President Trump was proved right for disinviting the Philadelphia Eagles from visiting the White House.
On Wednesday it was revealed that the Eagles were only set to send a grand total of one player to the White House, Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles. According to the Daily Wire, Mike Garafolo from the NFL Network was only able to get confirmation that Foles planned to attend.
Instead of hosting a single player from an entire team who was largely refusing to attend the celebration at the White House over political differences, president Trump made the best use of the time and honored the thousands of fans who were set to attend by hosting a celebration of America.
