Trump Eagles players

At least 3 Philadelphia Eagles players say they won’t be on the team plane when the Super Bowl champions Eagles fly to Washington, D.C. to visit the White House.

Malcom Jenkins, Torrey Smith and Chris Long have confirmed they do not plan to visit the White House because President Donald Trump lives there.

It is standard tradition for championship sports teams to visit the nation’s capital to meet with the president of the United States after a big win.

But many NFL players are still heated at Trump for referring to Colin Kaepernick and other players as “sons of b-tches” for kneeling during the national anthem.

“Nah, I personally do not anticipate attending,” Jenkins told CNN on Monday.

Smith, who raised his fist during the national anthem in the regular season, also said he won’t be on the team plane.

And Long made his decision clear even before the Super Bowl kickoff on Sunday. “No, I’m not going to the White House. Are you kidding me,” Long said.

“My son grow up, and I don’t want him to say, ‘Hey Dad, why’d you go when you knew the right thing was not to go.'”

Trump put his animosity toward the NFL aside to congratulate the team for upsetting Tom Brady and the New England Patriots on Sunday in Minneapolis.

“Congratulations to the Philadelphia Eagles on a great Super Bowl victory!” Trump tweeted on Monday.

No player on either team kneeled or raised their fists during Super Bowl LII.

Head bout to pop because they can’t stand the person guts sitting across from them… Congrats Eagles ?

    Sandra no word on the stock market.Stocks are getting smoked again.
    After a wild start to the trading day that saw markets open deep in the red before rallying to turn positive, markets have fallen to new lows with the Dow off more than 1,500 points.

  • hottlanta

    Got that right. He talking about no one kneeling when he doesn’t even know the words to anthem. Oops my bad he can’t read the words of the anthem.

    The cast of the beloved ’90s sitcom Martin (minus Cole) put their longtime differences aside for a friendly lunch date – further fueling the rumor that the show is coming back for a reboot.

    TMZ caught Martin Lawrence, Tichina Arnold and Tisha Campbell outside a steakhouse in Burbank, California and got a very strong indication that a reboot is on the way. The trio hadn’t been spotted together publicly since attending the funeral for their late co-star Tommy Ford. However, Martin’s response to the reunion rumors was hopeful and promising: “We don’t know nothing right now, but never say never.”

  • SpillyNillie

    I honestly can’t see how any Black player would want to go. I couldn’t be around ANYONE who has made it crystal clear how he feels about me and my other Black comrades. President or not…

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    When YOUR president can claim that “white supremacists” are “good people” but lash out at blacks for protesting racism and social injustice… progressive thinking blacks totally understand why these males refuse to travel to visit the WH. I know it’s beyond your comprehension, Sandy…

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    bring it back … Get on Netflix like full house did or something … Chile that new full house is good and they kept it the same. .. Learning lessons and family orientated … That’s how 90’s shows was…. Chile and I got all of em…. Lil J loves my 90’s sitcoms and 70’s cause she likes what’s happening too. . .. Those shows had purpose. In every episode lol

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Who is that man bc that ain’t prince. I don’t get this

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Yep. Me too.. Believe it or not I even miss the Cosby show. Wow the 90s was it!!!

  • cherrypie

    I’m all for a reboot but a Martin with Tommy??? Not sure about that and where is Cole?????

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    girl that’s a favorite right there.. . Got that whole series too Chile… We love the Cosby show.. . And my Claire on there … Chile that beautiful graceful intelligent Claire … Chile …?

  • Vonn

    I hope that the majority of the team declines.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    in so many words it seemed like they would write his death in the story line… they will never replace Tommy if they do so a reboot… we shall see … it would be dope though

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    ????

  • cherrypie

    yeah i can see them doing that or maybe he moved to another state with his family and calls everyone once in a while. Not sure if I want Tommy the character to die. Something a bit more positive would be better. Idk….RIP Tommy Ford

    I didn’t think anyone on this blog cared about the stock market. I wish i knew you cared. I would have posted about it. I’m not worried. I’ve got stop-loss orders in place just in case.

  • Pitty Patty

    This is going to be iffy. Because the jokes and things he said to Pam isn’t going to work now. Also some women man feel he was misogynistic to Gina. The feminist are not going to let this show live.

  • Noirluv45

    Yes, that’s the term my sister and her husband used to use.

  • Vonn

    It’s Dave Chappell in a skit from his show. JT had footage of Prince on the screen while he performed. Someone made this as a joke.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Folks was hating on JT dude did an excellent performance …. As always

  • Noirluv45

    I heard that Carl Payne (Cole) and Martin did not get along, so maybe they haven’t squashed their beef yet. ?????

  • Ryan

    If I’m not mistaken Chris Long donated all of his pay this season to charity. Him and trump have nothing in common.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    It would have to be a more grown version for the audience that has grown from that type of humor. I don’t see them getting a younger generation crowd.

  • hottlanta

    Love it. You always on point.

  • Ryan

    Chappelle.

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Right but being hungry causes one to do things they ordinarily wouldn’t do. I read somewhere that Cole was selling cars.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    I’m not going either.

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Girl don’t even start. Every time I saw her walk with her hair bouncing I was like ” git it girl”.!!!!!

  • Wreckognize Game

    This would a good way to account for him not being there moving to another state for work. They still won’t believe he got a job. I hope Cole comes back and Bruh man

  • Vonn

    He sure did.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    and those up do’s chile . .??

  • hottlanta

    Please a lot of those feminists are rich white women who abused other people to get to where they are. Then when they make it they pretend they are innocent as if everyone has done someone wrong but them. They can put a sock in it.

  • hottlanta

    I saw Martin over the weekend and to see Bruh Man jump out of the cake for the bachelorette party was tooo funny.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    they got along fine at Tommy funeral … I do think all beefs have been squashed …. because Cole spoke real nice about Martin

  • hottlanta

    Well his dad was a klansman. DUH!!!!!

  • hottlanta

    It is a lot of money selling cars. A lot of people I know selling cars are living pretty darn good.

  • Pitty Patty

    I don’t care for feminist black or white to tell the truth. The whites ones are entitled and whine to much about dumb shyt. And the black ones are too against men for my liking. I know black men can be difficult, but black feminist are always ready to castrate black men publicly.

    And black feminist don’t get that white feminist don’t give a shyt about them.

  • Ms.Vanilla

    This is true. My brother-in-law sells cars and he lives very very well… But once you’ve been on the big screen it’s a different lifestyle.

    I don’t blame them – the White House is contaminated now.

  • cherrypie

    Dang, for real!!! I hope that’s not true but could account for us never seeing Martin and Carl Payne together after all these years but he was such a big part of the cast tho. Hopefully he’ll come back. And Tracy Morgan also. Almost forgot him. He gotta come back as hustle man. lol

  • No Love Lost
  • hottlanta

    Naw when it is up Dump takes all the credit but when it is down he is silent. If you know anything about stocks it is supposed to go up and down and that is why folks don’t make such a big deal about it. Dump does when it is up.

  • dontgetblocked

    Oh well. It’s their loss. A trip to the WH is a fabulous opportunity. It’s not about the President at the time…but the office. Everybody blacke was at the WH when Reagan was the P.

  • Scromes1212

    If you know anything about presidents they ALWAYS take credit when the stock market is doing well.

  • Elevated Soul

    They sure won’t be….

    I didn’t watch the Superbowl,because I wasn’t going to support these ungrateful spoiled males who don’t even know why they’re protesting.

  • hottlanta

    I know they do but Dump wants you to bow down to him. There is a difference. Did you ever hear him say he walked into a BAD economy and had to RESCUE it. I have had jobs where I got a 3000.00 bonus whereas this guy gave his employees a 100,000.00 bonus in 2015 and Dump braving about 1000.00. Did Obama get on twitter or go to the news tooting his own horn. I am going to talk to my friends at Rainbow and ask how much money they got on their check. In every economy some segments do better than others because it depends on the kind of job market they are in. ALL of America is not doing well. Noticed how they never mentioned how much money the executives are getting. At the end of the day it said LARGEST DROP EVER!!!!!!!

  • NAYB

    People take White House tours all the Time b! It ain’t that special. They’re really not missing out on anything at all

  • NAYB

    You think he doesn’t care?. Lol. Wait until he cries like a baby about the situation to his diary ,Twitter.

  • Ryan

    Trump would just make a rambling pointless speech focused on himself with maybe only two words for the team. Pass.

  • NAYB

    Right. He’s awkard,dry, self centered and phoney. Wouldn’t even make for an enjoyable experience.

  • Jethro
  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Trump makes everything about himself so why bother?

  • hottlanta

    Did you see what I saw over the weekend. Wonder why Dump always emphasize the athletes kneeling. Come to find out his buddy from the WWE is starting his own football league. He said his players will not KNEEL and won’t have criminal records. That means he can’t hire himself when it comes to the criminal record part. His wife works for Dump in the SBA office. So I am wondering how many of their friends/family got some money. Now we know Dump had a failed football league before. He is trying to get folks mad at the national league so they will go over to his friends football league so he can make some coins. Now watch him say the word kneeling over, over and over again when they come to the white house the same way he said it the day of the game. This is getting good.

  • Ela

    Howie raised his boy right.

  • IamAllnatural

    That sums him up perfectly!

  • IamAllnatural

    I’m waiting for trump to comment on the Eagles fans who were celebrating in the streets. If they were majority black, the media would have called them rioters and trump would have call them thugs & sons of bixxhes.

  • Anonymouse

    Chris Long is not raising his son well at all. A father should teach his son how to be be gracious around people that you may not agree with. It’s called life. No words for the other two losers

  • hottlanta

    Is anybody gonna identify these people so they can go to jail, pay a fine for damages.

  • Evillene

    It’s not ideological. Trump is openly hostile toward and disparaging of black NFL players. Long has made the right decision.

  • V Dubb

    Good!!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Trump is a POS and Chris is correct to teach his son not to respect a poor excuse for a human being like Trump.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I am wondering how many contracts Trump is getting through HUD since he appointed his party planner Lynne Patton to oversee the NY and NJ offices.

    Why is it ok for rich people to take tax dollars but not the middle class or poor people?

    BTW did you hear what Trump’s new token spokesman Raj Shah called Trump ‘a deplorable’ and the Access Hollywood tape ‘some justice’.

    So they can’t find anyone to work for Trump who actually respects him?

    That’s not surprising.

    Ha,ha,ha!!

  • TMW

    Yeah my 401K ain’t looking so hot…

  • monique

    I wonder if Trump will only focus on the three non visiting players, we know how he is when his pride is challenged.

  • Jen_no_juice

    Trump has stated racist, bigotry, hatred, etc and if Chris Long chooses to keep HIS son away from folks like that that’s HIS decision. He can still teach him how to handle folks like Trump without going to the white house

  • Gina7169

    Im just assuming your from Atlanta but when the Falcons lost the SuperBowl ya peoples tore up the city too??? We fine ova here Philly has more than enough money to recoup the minimal damage smfh…

  • Kayke

    I also don’t teach my son that turn the other cheek nonsense nor do I teach him to step in the way of people’s karma. Trump deserves to not have any players visit the white house. That should be a part of his legacy. I’m glad Chris isn’t teaching this son that actions don’t have consequences.

  • Kayke

    “A trip to the WH is a fabulous opportunity”….that can be had by anybody. Went there on a school trip as a kid.

  • Simone

    Being invited to the White House is an honor. You can disagree with the politics of the sitting President but respect the Office of the President. If I was President Trump, I would disinvite the team and end the tradition of championship teams coming to the White House. During his presidency, you’re going to have certain athletes saying they’re not coming for attention or to be a political hero for anti-Trump folks. Just cancel the tradition.

  • Kayke

    I think the new one sucks …. Most recently I just can’t watch things with only yt people in it.

  • HelloToni

    Exactly…when he should celebrate hat the majority came and show this a nice time.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Being invited to the White House may be an honor for some but in this instance I can fully understand why an athlete or anyone for that matter would decline the invite. I applaud the athletes who will not go against their principles for a photo-op…

  • HelloToni

    Did they?? I didnt here about any destruction and I live downtown Atlanta…..

  • Quitedeliteful

    Sounds like he’s raising his son very well to me. These men graciously declined the invite. His son will grow up proud to know that his father is not just a Step-n-Fetch-It kind of man going along just to get along but a man standing strong on what he believes…

  • HelloToni

    I see your point but there are two sides to everything. I think it is more imnportant to teach your child to stand up for what you believe in and don’t be a follower. Just because the rest of the team is going you dont have to. I think its is still important that they respect the whitehouse and the President’s position but it’s ok to stay home. Maybe go volunteer that day. Do some community service. Donate to a charity. That is what makes America Great.

  • HelloToni

    He had his own team before?? I didnt know So it’s always about him and how he can spin a situation to his benifit.

  • J2PC

    True. Yet, the same should hold true for players across the board regardless of what party they belong to. If Dems were back in power, let’s not flip the script on athletes who refuse to go just because they are not with the socially dysfunctional liberal agenda being pushed and revamped as progressive. -as long as all things are held equal, then it’s all good.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Tom Brady did not want to go to Obama’s White House photo-op as was his choice. I agree that no one regardless of their political affiliation should be ridiculed if they decline the invite…

  • Liah

    I wouldn’t go either….Shout out to Torrey Smith!!!…You’ll always be a Raven in my book!

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Its not a back and forth its a fact given. Im not gonna argue either but I just wonder if the Patriots won would you be making the same statement??? Imma assume no. Dont speak on it if you dont live it…

  • Indies beauty

    I’m conflicted about your comment. I agree, being invited to to the White House is an honor. However, the word honor may be subjective. With all the things going on with trump, an invite might be an insult if you dont agree with his policies or are effected directly or indirectly by them. I don’t think the tradition should end, but I believe players should be able to accept or decline the invite. For me its all about authenticity. If these players genuinely disagree with his agenda then I don’t see the problem. I see it as a form of silent protest.

    It is an honor to some people, not others.

    American Indian chiefs showed up to the White House to be honored, only to be disrespected by the Malevolent Traffic Cone while standing in front of a portrait of genocidal maniac Andrew Jackson. Some honor.

    I wouldn’t dare take a picture with him for it to be floating around some 50 years later.
