Shepard Smith Hits Back at Trump: ‘Every Eagle Stood at Every Game, Every Time’

Immediately after President Trump‘s big “celebration of America” today, Fox News’ Shepard Smith immediately corrected the record on the Philadelphia Eagles.

Part of the reason the Eagles were disinvited, Trump said yesterday, was that they “disagree with their President” on the issue of standing for the national anthem.”

But as Smith made clear this afternoon, they actually did:

“It is the reporting of Fox News that every Eagle stood at every game every time, none knelt.”

He reviewed the President’s claim before reiterating, “The truth is, as I mentioned, the entire team stood for the anthem every game last season.”

Smith also noted how players have been protesting police brutality and racial injustice and how the President has called players “SOBs” and said they should be penalized.
