A guest at President Donald Trump's White House event on Tuesday apparently took a knee during the national anthem. Some players raised their fists during the anthem. "To me, going to the White House had nothing to do with the anthem", said Long.
"Not many people were going to go", Smith said, and "no one refused to go simply because Trump "insists" folks stand for the anthem". She thinks the entire Eagles team should have said they would attend the previously scheduled ceremony.
While the White House has issued two statements about the decision to rescind an invitation to the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles, the team itself has stayed out of the fray by not releasing any official statements in response.
Meanwhile, Sen. Bob Casey (D-Pa.) said if the Eagles are not at the White House, then he won't show up for "this political stunt". During her recovery after surgery, they reported about anything from her death until the facelift, that she left the White house (and me) and went to NY or Virginia.
The Eagles did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

AMD reveals Threadripper 2: up to 32 cores
Unfortunately, most of AMD's graphics presentation was highlighting the past, present and future contributions of partners. It goes without saying that the second-generation EPYC will be even more important for AMD than the first-generation.
The low attendance infuriated Trump, who then chose to cancel the ceremony and hold one honoring the National Anthem instead, the White House official said. The President has claimed credit for the player's unemployment. Though it was attributed to Trump, it varied between first- and third-person throughout.
Eagles' fans are concentrated in 22 counties in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and DE, according to a 2014 map by Facebook. Trump had been prepared to host the Eagles Tuesday, but announced Monday he was canceling the event. It could very well likely end up being just dozens of staffers, a source noted.
A study by the website Sports Pundit which tracked the kneeling protests league-wide last season found that no individual Philadelphia players actually participated, however. He knelt on the White House lawn while the United States Marine Band played the "Star-Spangled Banner".
