Former Philadelphia Eagle — and “Celebrity Apprentice” contestant — Terrell Owens had a blunt response to news that President Donald Trump rescinded an invitation to members of his former team to celebrate their Super Bowl LII victory at the White House on Tuesday, amusingly pointing out that no one wanted to go in the first place.
The outspoken former wide receiver — who retired with the second most receiving yards in NFL history — played for the Eagles between 2005-2006 after making his mark with the San Francisco 49’ers.
“T.O., you were an Eagle. Trump just pulled the visit, he uninvited the Eagles to the White House,” Owens was asked.
“I’m sure it wasn’t him uninviting the Eagles. I’m sure they didn’t wanna go,” Owens replied. “So, how does he uninvite people that didn’t wanna go?! Come on dog, let’s keep it real!”
“So he is going to have the Marine Corps band and the Army band as a replacements,” Owens was informed, to which he first replied, “Who?” then applauded and added “Awesome,” while smirking.

‘Big mistake’: Trump’s favorite pollster tells Fox News why Republicans shouldn’t push nomination before the election
Fox News on Friday examined why it would be a "big mistake" for Republicans to attempt to force through a nominee to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court.
Following Ginsburg's death, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) vowed that Trump's nominee would receive a vote, but did not specify whether it would occur before the election or during the "lame duck" session of Congress that occurs before the 2020 election victors are sworn in.
But conservative pollster Scott Rasmussen warned Republicans it would be a bad idea during an appearance with Fox News personality Laura Ingraham.
