Default Will the Eagles visit the White House?

Mr. Lurie has also made his political leanings known in private league meetings, including last October at N.F.L. headquarters. Weeks after Mr. Trump attacked the league, several dozen owners, players and league executives met to discuss a plan to donate money to an array of groups fighting social injustice. At one point, a player said that it was difficult to trust the owners because they supported Mr. Trump.

Mr. Lurie took exception.

“Another fact I want to throw out there: Many of us have no interest in supporting President Trump,” Mr. Lurie said, according to a recording of the meeting obtained by The New York Times. “Yes, there are some. There are some players who do, too.”

“But this is not where you brandish a group of people because they own assets in a sport we love, supporting what many of us perceive as, you know, one disastrous presidency,” he said, using a vulgarity to emphasize “disastrous,” then adding, “Don’t quote me.”

They should start a game: What will I do instead of going to the Trump White House?

1. Head down to Waffle House for a short stack.

The Eagles will probably have several prominent no-shows if the team makes the trip from Philadelphia. After their victory over the Patriots in February, some top players, including safety Malcolm Jenkins, defensive lineman Chris Long and wide receiver Torrey Smith, said they would not visit the White House if invited.

Yeah, it's always a good sign (and a good look) for a country when people dislike the POTUS to the point of declining invitations to the White House.

Reverse Racism is all the fashion with some. It's 2018 and Trump is the wrong skin color. He needs to turn that tanning bed to full power.

I don't care if they do or don't. I just know what I would do...I wouldn't go. The current occupant of the WH brings no honor to the place.

Dammit, I was going to make a The Eagles joke.

Lol, the snowflake brigade headed by Laurie isn’t going to WH for SB celebration because the liberal left is in full meltdown. I love Trump even more.

8 years of crap with Obama, and complete obstructionism by the democrats, yet this president has still managed to accomplish more in his short time in office then all the presidents since Reagan and Reagan had Tip O’Neil in Congress helping him out.

Huh? First of all, it's Lurie. Second of all, the Eagles planned to go the WH tomorrow but Trump decided to pull the plug this evening.
