Trump Cancels NFL Philadelphia Eagles White House Visit
President Donald Trump has canceled a planned Super Bowl reception for the Philadelphia Eagles after many players were not going to attend due to his position that all players must stand for the national anthem.
“The Philadelphia Eagles are unable to come to the White House with their full team to be celebrated tomorrow. They disagree 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,” Trump said in a Monday evening statement.
“The Eagles wanted to send a smaller delegation, but the 1,000 fans planning to attend the event deserve better. These fans are still invited to the White House to be part of a different type of ceremony—one that will honor our great country, pay tribute to the heroes who fight to protect it, and loudly and proudly play the National Anthem. I will be there at 3:00 p.m. with the United States Marine Band and the United States Army Chorus to celebrate America,” he continued.
Neither side can be supported from a libertarian perspective.
Trump is remarkably nationalistic, in the worst sense of the term, and militaristic. He just loves the military.
And the kneeling football players are a bunch of snowflake social justice warriors with helmets.
A plague o' both your houses.
