Americans realized more than ever before just how much the current president has degraded the office. It’s gotten so bad that professional athletes don’t even want to visit the White House anymore to celebrate their championship seasons. Perhaps the most absurd statement to appear recently came from Rick Santorum, who blamed former President Obama for the divisiveness Trump has created in America.
The president held a bizarre gathering on the White House lawn that he titled a “celebration of the American flag.” He created the event after realizing the championship Eagles refused to visit the White House due to his presence.
It all started last year at a Luther Strange rally when Trump called NFL players who kneel in peaceful protest of police brutality against African-Americans during the national anthem “sons of b*tches.” Ever since then, he’s continued to deceive his followers by tricking them into believing that he’s the consummate patriot.
Trump said in a statement:
“The Philadelphia Eagles are unable to come to the White House with their full team to be celebrated tomorrow. They disagree with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.”
Despite Trump’s best efforts to put on a successful show for his followers, he failed miserably due to one brave patriot’s protest. Watch the clip below:
