(Worthy News) - President Donald Trump has canceled the Philadelphia Eagles’ visit to the White House in celebration of their Super Bowl victory because not all players planned to attend.

In a statement released Monday evening by the Office of the Press Secretary, Trump said that the Eagles “are unable to come to the White House with their full team”:

“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,” the statement read. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More...) ]

  1. Unless, you're one of those who, though natural born US citizen and lifetime resident, are not free, and never have had justice that is supposedly "for all."

    The farce that the US national anthem depicts reality in these United States is what Trump is denying. In this case, he just might be fighting with God and His Truth.

    That would make those he just uninvited Persecuted aka Discriminated against. They got "invited" didn't they?

    Why? So he could be sadistic and uninvite them, to make his point? Wow, let's make a man like that our US President. (Not).

    There's nothing right in doing things that way.

    Remember "Job's friends"? If you don't, look it up. We do not get points with God for standing with the unrighteous. Trump may be President but playing sick games on people (there were wives and children involved, you know) is just that, sick.

    another name for it is Extortion. Oh, but I forgot. the definition of extortion only applies when ones own government is not part of the extortionists.

    I have an idea, why not make this country safer, setting slaves free, instead of, as now, only working to free the ones trafficked.

    Or how about implementing Justice for all, more and more. Progress, it's called.

    Then, Trump would have a leg to stand on regarding this dispute. As it is now, he's just proving ever more daily why people need not even attend football or hockey or baseball games anymore.
