Los Angeles Rams coach Sean McVay spoke too soon when discussing whether or not his team would visit the White House and President Trump should they win the Super Bowl. They did not, eventually losing to the New England Patriots 13-3.
According to The Daily Wire:
During a press conference before the Super Bowl, Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay said the team was “undecided” on whether to accept an invitation to visit President Trump at the White House.
Now, the team won’t have to bother making the decision: Only winners get invited to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Ever since Trump took office, athletes and teams have been dissing the president. And Trump’s been playing them like the master troll he is. In June 2018, Trump abruptly disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles after some team players said they’d boycott the visit.
“The Philadelphia Eagles are unable to come to the White House with their full team to be celebrated tomorrow. They disagree with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country,” Trump said in a statement. “The Eagles wanted to send a smaller delegation, but the 1,000 fans planning to attend the event deserve better.”
Trump has been known to rescind invitations to championship teams for disrespect in the past. Last year he disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles.
