TRUMP VS THE NFL: The President CANCELS White House Super Bowl Ceremony
Posted On 06 Jun 2018 /
National radio host Buck Sexton weighed-in Tuesday night on President Trump’s abrupt decision to cancel his scheduled ceremony with the NFL’s Philadelphia Eagles; escalating the President’s ongoing feud with professional athletes who protest during the national anthem.
“LeBron James saying that no one wants to go to the White House… this is just damaging,” said Buck. “[NBA players are] incredibly visible and widely revered Americans that are insanely highly paid.”
“There are people that look up to them,” he added. “There are people that want to appreciate what they do in their craft and ability without it always feeling like a political lecture is about to happen.”
“Even though I don’t get that excited about professional sports, we understand that celebrities and public awareness of individuals in this country is extremely powerful,” Sexton said.
