On May 17, Donald Trump invited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House. Two and a half weeks later, he released a statement, rescinding that invitation on the premise that the team in full was not attending.

Here is the official statement:

As you can see above, Trump will instead use the United State Marine Band and the United States Army Chorus as pawns in some laughable display of faux patriotism that morons will eat up with a spoon. 

Pennsylvania Senator Bob Casey and Congressman Brendan Boyle gave the Eagles an alternate invite shortly after news broke.


Update: The Eagles have released a statement. They chose not to even mention Trump, or the rescinded invite. Bravo.

Aaaaaaaand now Trump has spoken about "The Philadelphia Eagles Football Team."
