Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney blasted Trump as “not a true patriot” and a “fragile egomaniac” over the move.
President Trump fired back Tuesday amid the Philadelphia furor over his decision to disinvite the Eagles from a White House event, touting a patriotic ceremony being held instead and declaring: “No escaping to Locker Rooms!”
“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,” ~ President Donald Trump
The president said Eagles fans would still be invited to the White House to celebrate the team’s win, and “to be part of a different type of ceremony – one that will honor our great country, pay tribute to the heroes who fight to protect it, and loudly and proudly play the National Anthem.”
RWT Report on NFL going after President Trump, “They were clearly colluding because they were intimidated by the president. The only reason — and the owners will admit this — that they haven’t signed him is because of Trump, and they’ve colluded because of Trump.”
During Geragos’ conversation with Amy Dash, the lawyer implied that action could be taken against Trump for violation of a statute that explicitly forbids influencing the NFL’s decision regarding Kaepernick.
“There’s a specific code section that says if you — for a political, partisan reason — take an action to affect somebody’s employment in the private sector that that is, not only a criminal offense, but actionable, as well.
“Under the plain language of the statute, clearly, both Trump and Mike Pence have violated it. Not only are they covered persons under the statute, but there is irrefutable evidence … that it was done for partisan, political purposes. ‘Fire that son of a bitch’ was at a campaign rally.”
