The Philadelphia Eagles are not at the White House today, but some of the franchise's "fans" are. President Trump and Co. are hosting a patriotism-themed event in place of the scheduled ceremony for the Super Bowl champions.

The White House has been critical of the Eagles over the past 24 hours, saying they "abandoned" their fan base when it comes to the scheduled trip, which was cancelled by the president after he reportedly learned that only a handful of the team was going to make it to Washington, D.C.

"I’ve asked 6 of the “fans” at the White House who was the Eagles quarterback during the super bowl. Not ONE person knew," says one reporter.
