Donald Trump decided to hold a "Celebration of America" event in place of his now-cancelled meeting with the Philadelphia Eagles — and many Twitter users are thrilled that it doesn't appear to have gone as planned.
Various reports and videos from the event on the White House lawn show the president misremembering the words to "God Bless America" and attendees claiming to be Eagles fans failing to name the team's quarterback during their surprise Super Bowl win earlier this year.
"I’ve asked 6 of the “fans” at the White House who was the @Eagles quarterback during the super bowl," Philadelphia journalist Tim Furlong tweeted. "Not ONE person knew."

BuzzFeed legal editor Chris Geidner, meanwhile, mused about the audience make-up at the event.
"Who replaced the Eagles?" he tweeted. "Lobbyists?"

"A lot of balding, white men in this picture," one user noted, with another adding that there were "not a lot of brothas" at the event.
