Trump cancels football team’s visit to the White House because he’s a horrible racist

One player who spoke to CNN said the team had multiple meetings to discuss the invitation to the White House. Not many players wanted to go, the player said.

“The number was low,” he said.

But the issue Trump brought to the fore — players kneeling during the National Anthem — was not one of the team’s chief concerns. The player said the issue was never mentioned in the meetings.

A separate NFL source said none of the players on the Eagles team that won the Super Bowl took a knee during the anthem during the regular season — one player took a knee in the preseason but was cut before the regular season began. Safety Malcolm Jenkins raised his fist during the anthem to protest racial injustice before some games, but he stopped when the NFL pledged to make a $100 million donation to various charities in November.

Sen. Bob Casey, a Pennsylvania Democrat, said he’s skipping the White House event, and instead invited the team to take a tour of the US Capitol.

“I’m proud of what the @Eagles accomplished this year. I’m skipping this political stunt at the White House and just invited the Eagles to Congress. @Eagles How about a tour of the Capitol?” Casey wrote on Twitter.

Of course his base eats this kind of thing up, because they’re horrible racists too, which is why they voted for him. (BTW I was taken aback by all the sympathy extended to Melania Trump in the thread about her absence.  She’s helping to enable the continuation of this nightmare by choosing every day to continue to play the degrading role of a compliant mannequin trophy wife.  That makes her as complicit as anybody).

Seriously the Republican party simply needs to be destroyed at this point.
