The White House abruptly uninvited the Philadelphia Eagles from their super bowl celebration because of “irreconcilable differences” on Monday night.
However, since the press release circulated on Twitter, Philadelphia Eagles’ players called out President Trump for his blatant lies.
Eagles player Torrey Smith said on Twitter that no one planned on going to the celebration anyways. Smith called President Trump’s decision a “cowardly act.”
Smith said the White House seeks to spread a false narrative that football players are “anti-military.” He also mentioned that not one of the Eagles player kneeled during their last season.
So many lies smh
Here are some facts
1. Not many people were going to go
2. No one refused to go simply because Trump “insists” folks stand for the anthem
3. The President continues to spread the false narrative that players are anti military pic.twitter.com/89GUNhJ4eE

Cris Carter a former NFL great, said on Twitter that the Eagles should instead have a cookout with former president Barack Obama.
President Obama should invite the Eagles to his house for a barbecue.
