Man Kneels During Anthem At White House ‘Celebration Of America’ Event

Ex-Eagle Trump is ‘missing an opportunity to move forward

During a report about President Donald Trump canceling a visit by the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House, Fox News played at least one misleading image of the National Football League players in prayer (seen above).

President Donald Trump on Wednesday addressed rumors about first lady Melania Trump's almost monthlong withdrawal from the public eye, denying that there was anything nefarious about his wife's absence.

In the end, she says the Eagles offered to send "only a tiny handful of representatives" to the event, "while making clear that the great majority of players would not attend".

"She's done a fantastic job as First Lady". The people of our country love you.

That remark brought a loud round of applause.

She underwent surgery at Walter Reed hospital on May 14 for what aides called a "benign" kidney condition and was released on May 19.

Last year, the White House canceled a visit by the National Basketball Association champions, the Golden State Warriors. but that was after it's star players said they wouldn't be going.

There were places for Sane's City team-mate Ilkay Gundogan , Arsenal's Mesut Ozil and Chelsea's Antonio Rudiger . Sane impressed throughout the season, having scored 10 goals and provided 15 assists in 28 league appearances.

She did not speak at the event Wednesday.

LeBron James has said that no matter who wins this year's National Basketball Association final, neither his Cavaliers or the Warriors will be accepting an invite to the White House from Donald Trump.

Forty-nine percent of voters viewed Melania positively and only 17 percent negatively, according to the poll. Her prolonged absence sparked wild online speculation that she had been out of view for other reasons.

The first lady addressed the issue on Twitter last week, saying: "I see the media is working overtime speculating where I am & what I'm doing". In a follow up tweet, he echoed his favorite narrative: "Fake News is really bad!" Trump tweeted before the appearance Wednesday.

Kellyanne Conway, one of Trump's top advisers, also panned the coverage.

"I agree with LeBron", he said, viaThe Hollywood Reporter. However, in the room of FEMA officials-who were all clad in their dark suits, as were President Trump and VP Pence-Melania's look immediately catches the eye. She later tweeted photos from the event that showed her sitting next to the president.
