Philadelphia Eagles: Most of the players weren't going anyway

  • LeBron James and Stephen Curry say whoever wins the NBA final will decline any invitation to the White House

Earlier this week, Melania Trump had attended her first White House event in weeks, hosting a reception on Tuesday for the families of slain US military service members, though that event was closed to the media.

Monday night Trump took to his twitter to address the issues swarming around Super bowl champs Philadelphia Eagles visiting the white house.

Trump staged a political event on the White House South Lawn in place of a Super Bowl party for the Eagles, insisting on the need for Americans to stand up for the anthem to honor those who have sacrificed their lives for the nation.

"I'm blown away by the irony of the Eagles being disinvited", Kerr said before Wednesday's Game 3 of the National Basketball Association finals.

Eagles players rebuffed that notion, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season.

There was more fallout from the feud on Tuesday.

"The Philadelphia Eagles Football Team was invited to the White House".

Giuliani:?Special Counsel Trying To 'Frame' Trump In Russia Probe
His attacks come as the special counsel and Trump's legal team negotiate whether the president will sit down for an interview . Moscow officials have denied allegations of interference, calling the accusations groundless and absurd.

Kerr, like San Antonio Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich, has been outspoken in his criticism of Trump, and found it particularly ironic that the Eagles have been actively been doing "good deeds in their communities".

The White House did not allow journalists to cover the Gold Star event out of respect for the families, which meant Mrs. Trump was seen in person only by the 40 or so families and administration officials who attended.

And the Villanova Wildcats - this year's NCAA men's basketball champions, who also won in 2016 and celebrated with President Barack Obama - will have to decide, if an invitation comes, whether to return to Washington for a ceremony with Trump.

"What you've seen and what you've heard is enough". Trump in return tweeted that "staying in the Locker Room for the playing of our National Anthem is as disrespectful to our country as kneeling". Last month, Commissioner Roger Goodell announced a new policy requiring players on-field before the game to stand for the anthem.

"Instead the decision was made to lie and paint the picture that these players are anti-America, anti-flag and anti-military".

The Warriors, in lieu of going to the White House, spent that day taking a group of children to the National Museum of African American History and Culture a few miles away.

Those players were kneeling in prayer.not a single Philadelphia player took a knee during the regular season previous year, but this is a huge story.the Fox network is against prayer in public.
