Late yesterday evening President Trump announced that he has called off the meeting with the Super Bowl champions Philadelphia Eagles at the White House. Now, why would he do that? Well, it seems he did this to play to his hardcore conservative base.
“The Philadelphia Eagles are unable to come to the White House with their full team to be celebrated tomorrow. 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.”
