The Eagles won’t be going to the White House, but they are welcome at City Hall, the Pennsylvania State Capitol and Capitol Hill.

Politicians quickly reacted to President Trump uninviting the Super Bowl champions to the White House by inviting them elsewhere to celebrate.

Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney, a Democrat, was pointed in his criticism of the President, calling him “a fragile egomaniac obsessed with crowd size and afraid of the embarrassment of throwing a party to which no one wants to attend.”

“The Eagles call the birthplace of our democracy home, so it’s no surprise that this team embodies everything that makes our country and our city great,” Kenney said in a statement, via NBC Sports Philadelphia. “Their athletic accomplishments on the field led to an [sic] historic victory this year. Fans all across the country rallied behind them because we like to root for the underdog and we feel joy when we see the underdogs finally win. I’m equally proud of the Eagles’ activism off the field. These are players who stand up for the causes they believe in and who contribute in meaningful ways to their community. They represent the diversity of our nation — a nation in which we are free to express our opinions.

“Disinviting them from the White House only proves that our President is not a true patriot, but a fragile egomaniac obsessed with crowd size and afraid of the embarrassment of throwing a party in which no one wants to attend.

“City Hall is always open for a celebration.”

Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro, a Democrat, invited the Eagles to Harrisburg, and Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pa., wants the team to come to Washington, D.C., anyway.

“I’m proud of what the Eagles accomplished this year,” Casey wrote. “I’m skipping this political stunt at the White House and just invited the Eagles to Congress. Eagles How about a tour of the Capitol?”

  1. Trump is the whiny kid that nobody likes at school who invites everyone to whi bday party because he thinks everyone likes him. Then he “disinvites” them when he finds out nobody wants to come because he is a jerk, to try and save face.

    Even if you disagree with the protesters, you have to see this is what is happening here. I wish it wasn’t as funny and sad as this actually is.

  2. What you say? Another Democrats no one has heard of is crying and trying to get attention? Let’s not focus on epic economic growth, all time unemployment records, destroying isis,lets focus on a couple of privilidged 1%ers who get millions a to play a game because they got caught eating thier own bs.

  3. We have a diaper rashed President who thinks Canada is a threat to our national security! We live in the best of times, and the worst of times… at the same damn time

  4. Trump is a megalomaniac and a fascist. His relentless assault on many of the most basic and important building blocks of the constitution such as a free and independent press and an independent judiciary are beyond disgusting. All his schemes are aimed at stealing the wealth of the country for the 1%, and the massive pollution for profit scheme he and his cronies are engaged in will leave a mess that takes decades to clean up if its even possible to do so.

  5. Every Democrat running for office in Pennsylvania should tie this in a bow around their opponent’s neck.

  6. I love how everyone politicizes their criticism of trump politicizing this issue. Trump is a good president with an awful personality, i’ll Take it over a presidential type that is an awful leader.

  7. Same mayor whose city lost over $30 million, and can’t find it? Yeah I couldn’t care less what this convict has to say.

  8. Nobody even knows who this clown is and nobody cares what he has to say

  9. You are the mayor.Fix the police dept in your

    city and this kneeling wouldn’t be issue.

    Easier to blame Trump than fix problem

  10. “I’m skipping this political stunt at the White House and just invited the Eagles to Congress.”

    Seems like you are creating your own political stunt.

  11. And yet another one…who gives a crap. We come here for football, not NBC’s political agendas.

    He’s not just a bad president, he’s the WORST president.

    The Worst president Ever was Obama.

  13. “City Hall is always open for a celebration.”
    That might be part of Philly’s problem.

  14. These Democrats actually want the lifelong continuation of generational welfare. That’s what keeps them in office but most liberals are too **** to realize it and keep voting these same people in to ruin the fabric of their city. (see New Orleans, Detroit, Chicago, etc.)

  15. ““Their athletic accomplishments on the field led to an [sic] historic victory this year.”

    To Charean Williams: Why “[sic]”? “An historic” is correct grammar with no need for correction.

    This is what is known as a “[sic] mistake” by a writer.

    Not sure if you’re referring to Trump or the mayor, but if it’s Trump, I couldn’t agree with you more!
