Steve Kerr: Trump Treated Eagles Visit Like a 'Ratings Game'

Steve Kerr: Trump Treated Eagles Visit Like a 'Ratings Game'

The White House did not allow journalists to cover the Gold Star event out of respect for the families, which meant Ms Trump was seen in person only by the 40 or so families and administration officials who attended.

Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins met with the media Wednesday and used signs to speak.

Wallace said in a statement released by Fox News on Tuesday that "To clarify, no members of the team knelt in protest during the national anthem throughout regular or post-season a year ago".

According to the Washington Post, Kerr said he found the image ironic, calling Eagles players who do community service more patriotic than the commander in chief.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Tuesday that Trump viewed the move as a political stunt. Mrs. Trump's Communications Director, Stephanie Grisham, said the procedure was a success and without complication.

"People love you. The people of our country love you".

Gronk and the Brady-less New England Patriots with President Obama, who never disinvited a team to the White House because some players weren't attending. Both LeBron and Steph Curry revealed before game 3 of the National Basketball Association finals that they don't want an invite to the White House if their respective teams win.

The president initially canceled the visit on Monday night, citing the National Anthem controversy.

"I think there was a lot of discussion between the White House and the Eagles trying to formulate a plan", Ertz said.

Eagles Tight end Zach Ertz wore a Team USA soccer jersey while answering questions and said he's "proud to be an American".

Finally, he held up a sign filled with the names of prominent National Football League social justice advocates, calling them "True Patriots" and in subsequent signs marking how those National Football League players helped make America a better place.

Those players were kneeling in prayer.not a single Philadelphia player took a knee during the regular season a year ago, but this is a huge story.the Fox network is against prayer in public. For further proof of this, look no further than the ridiculous situation that spiraled out of what was supposed to be a ceremony at the White House recognizing the Philadelphia Eagles for winning the 2018 Super Bowl.

The second one gave the number of people shot and killed by police this year, and the sign pointed to the glaring statistical difference of African-American men in the U.S. population and the percentage of people killed by police who are black males.
