Malcolm Jenkins silent with reporters, has signs for White House response

  • US President Trump pulls invite to Super Bowl champions Philadelphia Eagles

Jenkins, who raised his fist during the national anthem, was among the Eagles who had previously indicated they wouldn't attend the White House ceremony after the Eagles won the Super Bowl.

The White House went a step further in its follow-up statement, saying Eagles players "abandoned their fans" with more than 1,000 fans cleared to attend the event. We did something last season that was very special, it was a milestone here in the city of Philadelphia, our organization, and I was looking forward to going down and being recognized as world champions. The players did not urge a collective decision on what to do as a team, giving each player his own option of whether to take the trip.

During his interview one of his signs said "YOU AREN'T LISTENING", another said "Chris Long gave his entire year's salary to educational initiatives". We're a team. Been that way since I've been here.

He ignored the reporters' queries, instead switching the cards as the cameras focused on them and he focused on getting the conversation back to where it started - on social and racial injustice.

"First lady Melania Trump might have the best favorability rating of anyone in or close to the White House, similar to Michelle Obama's favorability in 2010", said pollster Tim Malloy.

"I don't think [he's] actually kneeling", joked Arroyo of one robust anthem protestor.

Another sign by Jenkins read: "More than 60 percent of people in prison are people of color".

"I hope to be in that situation and win two more games where we win a championship and obviously know what comes with that", said Curry. "If you don't go, you run the risk of branding yourself as not having enough respect for the office". "I'm not discussing it", Pederson said. It's over. It's behind us.

But the idea that Eagles players were part of that specific demonstration isn't accurate.

Former NFL stars Burgess Owens and Jack Brewer on the fallout from President Trump canceling the Philadelphia Eagles' visit to the White House and the NFL national anthem protests. Later, White House press secretary, Sarah Sanders accused the Eagles of trying to turn the visit into a publicity stunt. At the end of the day I don't think it's about a statement.

CLEVELAND Stephen Curry and LeBron James spoke their minds previous year.

"Everyone in this locker room understands that everyone's heart is in the right place", Ertz said.

But facts don't matter in this us vs. them society in which you have to despise anyone who doesn't agree with you.
