Philadelphia Eagles Player Calls Out Fox News 'Propaganda' for Prayer Photo

Eagles Won't Celebrate Championship At White House

Eagles Won't Celebrate Championship At White House

Colbert also focused on Fox News' decision to run a photo of Eagles tight end Zach Ertz kneeling on the field in prayer during a segment about Trump's decision.

So when Trump canceled the celebration, Smith took to Twitter, saying it was a "cowardly act" by the White House and accused Trump of spreading "the false narrative that players are anti-military". In rescinding the invitation, the president cited a disagreement over standing for the national anthem before games, although none of the Eagles' players took a knee during the 2017 season. Garafolo reported that contingent would have consisted of fewer than 10 players.

In response, the NFL has decided that players and teams will be fined if they kneel during national anthem from next season.

On Monday the White House disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles from their ceremonial White House visit.

"I don't think people should be staying in locker rooms, but still I think it's good", he said on Fox News.

"That's the story of the season", said Kerr, walking the thin line between frenetic energy and exhaustion that he often does. The bathroom break may have served as a chance for Curry to catch his breath in what is one of his worst games in years .

Trump said the fans who planned on attending the ceremonial event "deserve better" than the small delegation of players. Trump's tweet said the event was canceled because "only a small number of players made a decision to come", and added, "Staying in the Locker Room for the playing of our National Anthem is as disrespectful to our country as kneeling". Many players from the team were not planning on attending the ceremony as a protest of Trump, his policies and his outspoken criticism of players who chose to kneel during the anthem.

Trump sang along to "The Star-Spangled Banner" and "God Bless America" during a brief ceremony that included the U.S. Marine Band and the U.S. Army chorus.

The White House insisted that it was the Eagles who failed Philly fans, humble people who love President Trump so much they want to see him with their team in the most ambitious crossover event of all time.

"Separately, the president sees that the National Football League came out with its own policy".

All-Pro center Jason Kelce said players filled out forms anonymously indicating whether they wanted to go to the White House, not make the trip or go to Washington and do something else.
