Fox News panel hilariously defends Trump in Eagles spat: ‘It was too bad he had a team to work with that didn’t kneel’

Donald Trump’s spat with the Philadelphia Eagles, who attempted to schedule their visit to the White House for when the president was in Singapore and then tried to only send a few players, the owner and a mascot, was a hot topic for a Fox News panel on Tuesday evening.

Mollie Hemingway of The Federalist seemed unable to comprehend how Donald Trump’s rhetoric on the the anthem issue may have been so divisive that many Americans no longer wished to associate themselves with a tradition like going to the White House. The conservative commentator bemoaned the “dangerous” place the country is in because liberals will not assuage Trump and pledge loyalty to Trump and what he stands for.

“People also said he shouldn’t have talked about the national anthem all during last NFL season and he ended up doing pretty well in that debate, just politically speaking,” she said. “People of course have freedom of speech but there are some deeper issues in play. In a country that cannot have shared symbols and shared understanding of the importance of a country, the values we hold in terms of our Constitutional founding is in a very dangerous spot.”

Host Bret Baier pointed out that Trump made his statement by picking a team that did not protest by kneeling.

“He’s a cultural warrior. He feels this is a good issue for him. He’s going to keep hammering on it until November,” said Mara Liasson of National Public Radio. “I think he wanted to make this point, and it was too bad he had a team to work with that didn’t kneel because there he had to misrepresent the facts because he wants this issue and he’s going to take every possible opportunity to push it.”
