Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins responds to White House snub with signs

Irene MckinneyJun 08, 2018

A new Quinnipiac University poll found the first lady is more popular than any of a half-dozen top White House officials surveyed, including Vice President Mike Pence, spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani.

Trump also paired the text of the tweets with video of himself and the first lady on his Facebook page.

It's the first time Melania has been seen in public with her husband since May 10, when she welcomed three prisoners freed from captivity in North Korea back to America.

There was, however, another question about having the invitation to visit the White House rescinded.

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.

On Tuesday, LeBron James said neither team would visit the White House and Steph Curry and Durant agreed.

Shortly before 2 p.m., a handful of assembled press caught their first glimpse of Melania Trump in nearly 27 days, as the first couple walked from the Oval Office toward their assembled motorcade, parked along the White House driveway. Upon learning these facts, the President chose to change the event so that it would be a celebration of the American flag with Eagles fans and performances by United States Marine Band and the United States Army Chorus. It also touched on their supposed proclivity for kneeling during the anthem - which nobody on the team did during the regular season or postseason - Goodell or the National Football League have yet to comment on the situation or come out in support of the Eagles or any players. "Because Trump's administration is so highly charged, it's understandable that many players would refuse to attend". "Unfortunately, only a small number of players chose to come, and we canceled the event".

"She's doing great", he said. "In other words, the vast majority of the Eagles team chose to abandon their fans".

He also said, "What you've seen and what you've heard is enough".

The Eagles ownership released a statement Monday night that did not mention Trump or the canceled visit, calling it "an inspiration" to watch "the entire Eagles community come together".

"To clarify: No members of the team knelt in protest during the national anthem throughout [the] regular or post-season a year ago", she added.

"This can't be serious", Ertz wrote.

Kerr was asked about the Minnesota Lynx, the WNBA champions who were uninvited to the White House and spent their day in Washington helping underprivileged children in a District of Columbia school.
