Can snowflakes be thin-skinned as well?

U.S. President Donald Trump ratcheted up his feud with the National Football League, disinviting the Philadelphia Eagles from a ceremony marking the team’s Super Bowl win and saying he will instead have military bands play the national anthem at the White House Tuesday.

“We will proudly be playing the National Anthem and other wonderful music celebrating our Country today at 3 P.M., The White House, with the United States Marine Band and the United States Army Chorus. Honoring America!” Trump said in a posting on Twitter. “NFL, no escaping to Locker Rooms!

Trump announced the decision Monday evening after an unknown number of Eagles decided against attending the event with a president who has repeatedly criticized players for protesting police brutality by kneeling during the National Anthem. Trump was facing a repeat of last year’s ceremony, when several New England Patriots, including quarterback Tom Brady, opted not to attend.

“The Philadelphia Eagles are unable to come to the White House with their full team to be celebrated tomorrow,” Trump said. “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 Eagles wanted to send a smaller delegation,” the president added, “but the 1,000 fans planning to attend the event deserve better.”

Jesus Christ! 

This almost exactly reminds me of a little kid telling his peer that if they don’t do what they tell them then they can’t come to their birthday party. 

The toddler-in-chief strikes again. 

And here’s the thing, the Philadelphia Eagles were not known for taking a knee during the anthem. 


By the way, let’s take a moment to remember that kneeling during the National Anthem was NOT to disrespect the flag but to protest police shootings and injustice and that it was suggested to Colin Kaepernick by a member of the armed services. 

Can’t we have at least one day where this Kremlin crony does NOT embarrass America?

    “James also argued that winning a championship is “way bigger than getting to the White House, especially with [Trump] in there.””
    “LeBron says winning a championship is “way bigger than getting invited to the White House, especially with (Trump) in there.” “You just laugh to stop you from crying.””

    Trump the child president in an old man’s body. He never ever graduated from being that evil child his parents had to ship to military school. Now he’s president. And every day he does some stupid sulky child thing and we take him seriously. Stormy needs to spank him, I say. Baby being bad, as always.

      Agree. The only reason he’s ever had a sex partner, wife or mistress is because he’s conned everyone into thinking he had some money (but not a billionaire IMO) or business smarts (if you forget all the bankruptcies and stiffing others). The Orange One is nothing but a traitor, a narcissist and deep-down, nothing but a failure.

    tinydjt>”The Philadelphia Eagles Football Team was invited to the White House. Unfortunately, only a small number of players decided to come, and we canceled the event. Staying in the Locker Room for the playing of our National Anthem is as disrespectful to our country as kneeling. Sorry!
    6:55 PM – Jun 4, 2018″

    “NO Eagles player knelt during the 2017 season.”
    ““In the end, Donald Trump couldn’t stand the thought of another TINY crowd,” Hayes wrote. “Not after the inauguration photos.Not after so many Patriots no-showed last year. Even Tom Brady and his MAGA hat didn’t show up.”

      EXACTLY. No one wanted to come, and I read today that neither the Warriors nor Cavaliers are coming no matter who wins the NBA Finals.
      Tough toenails, Orange Julius Caesar, it’s not about standing for the anthem. Perhaps they simply can’t stand YOU!

    ““The Philadelphia Eagles are unable to come to the White House with their full team to be celebrated tomorrow,” Trump said.

    “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 Eagles wanted to send a smaller delegation, but the 1,000 fans planning to attend the event deserve better.”

    Trump said in lieu of the reception, he would host an alternative ceremony for fans that would “honor our great country, pay tribute to the heroes who fight to protect it and loudly and proudly play the national anthem.””
    ““No one refused to go simply because Trump ‘insists’ folks stand for the anthem… The President continues to spread the false narrative that players are anti military.””
    “Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney said disinviting the Eagles “only proves the President is not a true patriot.””

    GO EAGLES AMERICA’S BIRD!

      “A man takes a knee during Trump’s celebration.” “The moment was captured by journalist Carina Bergfedlt.”
      “Donald Trump struggled to remember all the words to “God Bless America” today, a man in the audience made his position clear. As audience members wanly waved tiny American flags, a man kneeled in solidarity with the players.”

    Philly here. No one cares here lol. Nothing on social media really or TV news. Some Eagles are RWCNJ but not in your face about it.
    Trump looks like a fool.

    “the anthem is not the i$$ue here. Not for the majority of the NFL’s protesters, who like Jenkins want to talk about racial inequality, a racist criminal justice system, or the nearly 400 black Americans who have been killed by police since Colin Kaepernick first began his demonstration nearly two years ago. And not for Trump, who along with Vice President Mike Pence has bastardized the anthem for his own political ends, blatantly committing the same perceived crime the players stand accused of.”
    “For the president, who may or may not even know the words to the song, the anthem is only a useful weapon in his broader campaign of silencing black athletes, black sports figures and black people who would dare challenge him. At bottom, it has nothing to do with who is and isn’t kneeling for the anthem. It’s about who is and isn’t kneeling to HIM.”

    OT? BLM! ” Judges nominated by Republican presidents give black defendants harsher sentences.

    An exhaustive new Harvard study analyzed data on more than half a million defendants and about 1,400 U.S. district court judges over 15 years. It found that, compared with Democrat-nominated judges, GOP-nominated judges sentence black defendants to three more months than nonblack defendants for similar crimes.”

    “Calling police on Black folks for nothing has become an increasingly popular way for White people to feel safe. In an egregious example of White privilege, this woman had the audacity to think she could force a Black woman to be her therapist and listen to her white woes. No thank you, Patty. We applaud the Black woman who declined your offer for reclaiming all her time today.”

    Until he learns the words to the national anthem and, as of today, “God Bless America,” he can STFU.

    ““I was not invited to the White House iftar, but I would not attend if I were,” said Dalia Mogahed, director of research at the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding.”
    “Attending this event, especially during the holy month, a time of introspection and spiritual growth, would be inappropriate in my view as it would appear to normalize this administration’s behavior.”

    Who the fuck would go to Trump’s Iftar?!
