Trump holds ‘patriotism’ event without Eagles

Super Bowl Players from the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles clash during the February 4 game which was won by the Eagles

Before Trump took office, one of the biggest fusses to emerge from a White House victory celebration was the great flip-flop incident of 2005, when the Northwestern University women's lacrosse championship team wore the sandals to meet President George W. Bush. "Just sad, I feel like you guys should have to be better than this".

The tweet averaged 97,285 likes, 21,897 retweets, and 42,000 comments.

Bream's remarks were the second time the network apologized on Tuesday over the affair.

On Monday night, Fox News used photos of several Eagles players kneeling in prayer during a story about Trump's decision to revoke the club's invitation to celebrate its Super Bowl LII win at the White House; the fact is, no Philadelphia player kneeled during the anthem during the regular season or playoffs a year ago.

Some NFL players have chosen to kneel during the national anthem the last two seasons to protest social injustice. "We sincerely apologize for the error".

"This can't be serious".

The day before the event, Mr. Trump disinvited the Eagles from their planned visit after it became clear that most members of the team were not going to attend.

"The White House, despite sensing a lack of good faith, nonetheless attempted to work with the Eagles over the weekend to change the event format that could accommodate a smaller group of players", the statement read in part.

Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney said Mr. Trump's decision "only proves that our president is not a true patriot, but a fragile egomaniac".

Muguruza slams Sharapova; Halep survives
Top-ranked Simona Halep has leveled at one set-all in her French Open quarterfinal against Angelique Kerber of Germany. Sharapova was hardly at her best right from the start, double-faulting three times to get broken in the opening game.

No-one connected with the team said the players' reluctance to attend had anything to do with the national anthem, as Mr Trump tried to portray the situation. The NFL Players Association criticized the policy on twitter, alleging that it violates their first amendment right to peacefully protest.

However, Eagles players never knelt during the Star-Spangled Banner throughout the 2017 season and their march to the Super Bowl title. Keep carrying his water to sow division while misrepresenting Christian men. Players who choose not to stand may remain in the locker room until the anthem is finished.

Trump, he said, "continues to spread the false narrative that players are anti military".

"There are a lot of people on the team that have plenty of different views", Smith added in a subsequent tweet.

"I'm sad for the Eagles that wanted to go, but everybody has their agenda", Garrett said.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the team notified the White House last Thursday that 81 people, including players, coaches, managers and others would be attending the Super Bowl celebration.

After more than three weeks out of the public eye, the first lady strolled into a White House event Monday for military families and swept away the wild speculation that she was incapacitated or had otherwise vanished.

The player union said in a statement that National Football League players "love their country, support our troops, give back to their communities and strive to make America a better place".

No current players for the Philadelphia Eagles have been reported to take a knee during the previous season's games. Players are no longer required to be on the field for the anthem.
