This Thursday, one disrespectful man took a knee on the White House lawn during the national anthem at President Donald Trump’s celebration of America event.
This was probably the same person that heckled President Trump yelling out “Eagles!” Reporters say that he was booed soon after he spoke and was escorted outside.
It sure seemed like somebody was looking for their 15 minutes of fame. Sad that they used this moment to do it.

CNN’s April Ryan tried to spin the moment saying that President Trump was the one who was booed. Then she was quickly shot down by another CNN producer:
April Ryan rushed in to correct her lie tweeting, “Breaking: reporters are re-watching the event and found a heckler in the crowd started asking questions of @realDonaldTrump and the heckler was booed. The heckler was escorted out of the event. The booes were for the heckler”
The event was scheduled by President Donald Trump after dis-inviting the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House because of their disrespect to the national anthem.
“The Philadelphia Eagles Football Team was invited to the White House. Unfortunately, only a small number of players decided to come, and we canceled the event. Staying in the Locker Room for the playing of our National Anthem is as disrespectful to our country as kneeling. Sorry!” said the President.
“We will proudly be playing the National Anthem and other wonderful music celebrating our Country today at 3 P.M., The White House, with the United States Marine Band and the United States Army Chorus. Honoring America! NFL, no escaping to Locker Rooms!” posted President Trump on Twitter.
The “Celebration of America” was held to celebrate the national anthem and honor the United States of America. Trump sang the anthem in front of the crowd with the military band.
Apparently, there are a few more reasons why the Eagles were dis-invited:
Philadelphia Eagles timeline
1. Tried to come to WH for celebration June 5 – couldn’t get arrangements together so:
2. Wanted to reschedule for June 11 or 12 (apparently missed historic news
POTUS going to Singapore with NK)
3. Eagles cancelled altogether
4. POTUS dis-invited
This info comes from today’s Press briefing with Sarah Sanders. “If the Press would pay attention, they wouldn’t have to ask so many stupid questions over and over — oh, my bad, they are political activists now aren’t they?” said another tweet.
It’s so sad how some people still refuse to respect our country and the heroes that built it. Why do they even go to the White House if they don’t respect what it stands for?
Instead of disrespecting their own country, maybe people like these should move somewhere else, where they would feel happier.
