The abrupt cancellation of the Super Bowl champions’ visit to the White House by a salty and resentful President Trump has suddenly reignited the simmering feud between MAGA America and black NFL players who choose to protest racism and police brutality in America.
Trump announced that instead of the Philadelphia Eagles visiting the White House, he would be inviting fans to a special performance of the National Anthem today in order to somehow “get back” at the winners of America’s most popular sporting event, and even boasted about all the teams that had visited him before in a pathetic effort to show that he was not owned and has never been mad, actually, he’s laughing and this is hilarious and he didn’t even want them to come anyway.
We have had many Championship teams recently at the White House including the Chicago Cubs, Houston Astros, Pittsburgh Penguins, New England Patriots, Alabama and Clemson National Champions, and many others. National Anthem & more great music today at 3:00 P.M.

It’s great to see that he’s so unbothered by his unpopularity among athletes, since his war against the NFL is not earning him any fans among the athletes of other sports.
The National Basketball Association finals are underway between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Two of the best basketball superstars of their generation, Cavs legend Lebron James and the Warriors’ Steph Curry are set to clash in Game 3 on Wednesday with the Warriors leading by two games – but no matter who wins, nobody is going to visit Trump.
Reporters caught up with the stars today, and they made their opinions on the matter very clear:
LeBron James on Trump un-inviting the Eagles to the White House: "I know regardless of who wins this series, no one wants an invite anyway. It won't be Golden State or Cleveland going."

The president’s obsessive need to surround himself with famous athletes – or really anyone in general who has a spotlight to steal – makes these rejections particularly galling for the petulant toddler in the White House.
We cannot afford to normalize or enable Trump in any way, shape or form. Kudos to these athletes for refusing to be exploited for a cheap photo-op that panders to the president’s insatiable ego.
