Thumbs up Trump uninvited the entire Eagles team from the White House

The Eagles, who won Super Bowl LII in February, apparently wanted to send a smaller group of players as a handful did not plan to attend but Trump uninvited the entire team. According to Philly.com, a team source told them, "fewer than 10 players planned to attend" the event. Safety Malcolm Jenkins and Defensive End Chris Long were among the players the report cites as having planned on skipping the ceremony. Team owner Jeffrey Lurie had planned to attend.

NFL new rule: All personnel on field must stand for the anthem

Trump, in a statement, said the team is "unable" to attend the ceremony because they don't agree with his belief that NFL players should "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." A group of 1,000 fans, however, are still invited to attend a "different type" of event, one which Trump said "will honor our great country, pay tribute to the heroes who fight to protect it, and loudly and proudly play the National Anthem."

Don't piss Trump off is a lesson for the whole world to learn. I feel bad for the others but am proud to have a President who don't take no crap! Tail ain't supposed to wag the dog!

I stand for the flag and the National Anthem and kneel at the cross.

Do you think I could get invited to the White House.

Darn right Teddybear! I'm going to call him and see if he won't stop by the Coffee Shop for a meet and greet! I think he got 100% of the Early Risers Votes!
