Eagles fail to own Trump so now they’re miffed

So, the Philadelphia Eagles were supposed to go to the White House today. Because for some reason I never understood, championship teams always get to go to the White House.

Any old how. Most of the team was planning on skipping it.

You know, as a way to own Trump.

The plan was obvious.

Only a handful of Eagles players would turn up. And then the media could have a field day cheering the players who stayed away all so they could insult the President.

But President Trump threw it right back at them – as only Donald Trump could.

Now, if Donald Trump was like every other “smile while they spit in your face” Republican, this would have been a masterful own on the part of the Eagles and the media.

But, as always, Leftie anti-Trumpers totally underestimated Donald Trump.

Actually, I think underestimating Donald Trump is a prerequisite for being a frothing-at-the-mouth anti-Trumper.

By telling the Philadelphia Eagles to go pound sand, President Trump took their attempt to politicize what’s supposed to be a celebration and turned it around on them.

This is Donald Trump’s specialty – that “I’m rubber you’re glue” tactic that has served him so well.

The Eagles tried to slam Trump and he shoved it right back down their throats.

Now the media is howling, the mayor of Philly is flapping his trap and attacking the President.

But don’t be fooled.

The reason they’re so upset is because President Trump beat them at their own game.

And he deprived them of the opportunity to act like dicks.

A few minutes ago, I stumbled across this Twitter thread by Jesse Kelly that sums it up better than I can.

    Good job Mr. Trump.

    A bunch of overpaid thugs…”Pay me but don’t you dare tell me what to do!”

    Unfortunately the almighty dollar means just as much to the NFL so they took a knee.

    I love how on FB, the friends I have that most passionately defend the kneeling NEVER go to games, NEVER buy merch, and NEVER spend money on professional sports. Who’s buying the merch and the $12 beers and $10 hot dogs? Not my PBS-loving-Trump-hating-let’s go see Hamilton friends!

      That’s the appeal of virtue-signaling. It requires no effort, no expense and no sacrifice.

    Why did Trump even bring up the flag and the locker room? The Eagles stood all season.

    This President played politics, not the team. They simply want nothing to do with him.

      I guess you didn’t read the post or those tweets. I know how it is. You see someone share something on Facebook and you assume you know the details of the post without reading it. So you click the link and immediately scroll down to the comments section so you can give us your take. Happens all the time. Yes, they “simply want nothing to do with him” so they all decide to skip it hoping it makes Trump look like a buffoon that they won’t go. And he deprives them of that opportunity. Any other President would have proceeded with the event and tried to smile through the shit in his teeth. Not Trump. He isn’t going to give them that satisfaction. They played politics to own him and he played politics by throwing it back in their faces. You’re deluding yourself if you think they weren’t playing politics.

        So why did Trump even bring up the National Anthem? Makes no sense.

          As to that, I could only speculate. As I said, he was politicizing it. So perhaps he felt like conflating this diss to the more egregious disrespect of the anthem. Who knows?

          Conflating things is common nowadays, isn’t it? The news media hears Trump call MS-13 “animals,” so they conflate MS-13 with all illegal aliens because they too play politics. They want to piss off people so they conflated something Trump said as being something he didn’t say. Happens a lot, don’t you think? Apparently those are the new rules.

      I don’t know that much, first i thought him wrong for dissing them, IF ony 5 were showing, he just beat them to the puch as he always does. I thought tho he shouldn’t have done it, he cheated the ones out who were willing to go. It should be a privelege to go to the WH and they were denied. I understand none of them knelt, i guess the Owner is not a Trumper for sure and so then the players?
