White House press secretary Sarah Sanders knocked the Philadelphia Eagles on Tuesday for pulling out of a White House event at the last minute.

President Trump announced on Monday that the Super Bowl-winning Eagles team would no longer be welcome in the White House because a number of them dropped out last minute. He also cited the fact that some players on the team carried out protests against the national anthem and asserted he would hold a celebration of America instead.

Sanders placed the blame squarely on the Eagles for being disinvited and said that the “fans deserve better” than a “political stunt.”

“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. If it wasn’t a political stunt, then they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit when they knew the president would be overseas and if this wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have waited until Monday, well after thousand of their fans traveled and taken time out of their schedules to offer a only a tiny handful of representatives to attend the event,” Sanders asserted.
