Some Eagles carry-on the trend to skip the White House visit.
The football season is finally over but what isn’t is players wanting nothing to do with the president.
Some of the players from the Philadelphia Eagles have come forward to say they will be skipping the traditional White House visit. The Super Bowl champs haven’t yet decided if they will skip meeting President Donald Trump as a team or only allow those who don’t want to come the right to not attend.
So far safety Malcolm Jenkins told CNN Monday, “Nah, I personally do not anticipate attending.” Wide receiver Torrey Smith joined in solidarity with Jenkins, saying he disapproved “of Trump’s war against players who take a knee during the national anthem to protest racism.”
Trump made a war against black football players calling them “son of b****es* after continuing their peaceful protest that was started by former player Colin Kaepernick.
Other sports championship winning teams like the Golden State Warriors also don’t nothing to do with the president or care to visit him. At this point can you even blame anyone?
