Sarah Sanders Gives A Journalist A Much Needed Dose Of Truth
The NFL players and their kneeling has supposedly been taken care of. But some players are angry about the new policy and looking for other avenues to protest. Trump invited The Eagles to the White House but they have been flaky and showing very little interest in actually showing up.
During the Press Briefing, following the cancellation of the Eagles meeting, Jon Karl from ABC News questioned Sanders about Trump’s choice to cancel.
Karl: “Is the President aware that not a single player on the Eagles for the entire season knelt for The National Anthem?
Sanders:”There were 80 members of the Eagles’ organization that RSVPd and committed to attend this event as recently as Friday as well as over 1,000 fans of the Eagles’ organization,” Sanders said. “The Eagles, are the ones that tried to change their commitment at the 11th hour and the president frankly thinks that the fans deserve better than that and therefore we changed the ceremony to be a focus on celebrating our great country.”
Karl interrupted Sanders as she was about to move on to another journalist.
Karl: “Why is he acting like this about the National Anthem…Is this about something more than the National Anthem, something other than The National Anthem?”
Sanders: “Look, if this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles’ franchise then they wouldn’t have planned to attend the event and backed out at the last minute,” Sanders replied. “If it wasn’t a political stunt then they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit when they knew the president was going to be overseas and if this wasn’t a political stunt they wouldn’t have waited until Monday, well after 1,000 of their fans had traveled and taken time out of their schedules to offer only a tiny handful of representatives to attend the event.”

As you can the see the MSM tried their best to slight Trump for changing the schedule. They immediately made assumptions that Trump had changed the venue as if he were personally offended by their flaky behavior. But really the players were letting down their fans. He had given them an out for being no-shows. He took the High Road the media and the players just didn’t understand that.
