Eagles Fans Are Bashing Trump On Twitter For White House Uninvite
It's happening again. Our oh-so Twitter savvy President, Mr. Donald J. Trump himself, has made it quite clear via social media that he has disinvited South Jersey/Philadelphia's beloved Eagles from the White House.
The Super Bowl champs were invited to our nations capitol to celebrate the victory with the President of the United States, when apparently some disagreement occurred over the National Anthem. Philly Mayor Jim Kenney released this statement in response:
“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"
In which case, the dispute continues on Twitter, where Eagles fans are forced to take sides with either their President, or their NFL Champions. And it looks like our area is choosing to #BleedGreen rather than Red, White and Blue over this situation.
But the true mic drop comes from the Philadelphia Mayor's Aide who compared Trump's Inauguration to the Eagles Parade:
God Bless those who can stand on the impartial side of this break-up. But as for those on the #TeamEagles side... It's not so easy to return that box of "stuff" after 52 years of "working on the relationship". See what I mean?
