Where Was Melania Trump? She Went Through 'Rough Patch'

On Tuesday, Trump had disinvited the Eagles after the size of their contingent shrank to around a dozen players, replacing it with a "Celebration of America" that featured military bands.

At least two guests at President Donald Trump's event on Tuesday to highlight why Americans stand for the national anthem, which replaced the Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl LII ceremony, opted to take a knee as the "Star Spangled Banner" rang out across the South Lawn of the White House.

Melania Trump was last been seen by reporters at a public event on May 10 standing alongside her husband at Joint Base Andrews as the couple greeted three Americans who had been released from prison in North Korea. Trump claims the Eagles disagreed with his position on standing for the National Anthem before the game, but during the 2017 regular season and playoffs, Eagles players always stood during The Star-Spangled Banner.

Before its cancellation, a lot of Eagles players had said they weren't going to attend the event at the White House anyway because of the president.

Last September, Trump revoked an invitation to the Warriors, which had beaten the Cavaliers for the title, after Curry said he would vote against a planned visit. He was told the White House had accused the Eagles of a political stunt.

It apparently wasn't enough, though, for some of Pederson's players.

"I mean, I know no matter who wins this series no one wants the invite anyway, so, it won't be Golden State or Cleveland going", LeBron said.

It is normally just a fun photo opportunity where the president says a few words about the team, the team presents the president with a customized jersey, a few pictures are taken and that's it. Staying in the Locker Room for the playing of our National Anthem is as disrespectful to our country as kneeling. We love everything about the people who come and watch us and support us, whether it's in training camp or in the stadium. And these things are systemic; there are ways that we can change them. We stand to show our love for our fellow citizens and our magnificent Constitution.

Kerr, like San Antonio Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich, has been outspoken in his criticism of Trump, and found it particularly ironic that the Eagles have been actively been doing "good deeds in their communities".
