Longstanding U.S. tradition sees champions in many sports visit the White House as a celebratory honor. But in this bitterly polarized era, meeting the president is no longer a routine practice.

So let’s see - Trump invites the whole team, some black players choose not to attend, so that makes Trump a racist according to the lamestream media.
media helps black racists to make trouble... film ad nauseam
Mr. Smolett... Mr. Smolett to the courtesy desk please. Mr. Smolett to the courtesy desk.
If it were Obama it would be a frenzy fest, these are nothing but racist, and they call trump a racist.
Many star athletes have opted out of the experience
They meant to say...whiny little wussies.
Appears that the Boston Red Sox have several intolerant racists on the team.
Ask any of the ones that don't show up what are these "political and philosophical perspectives" are, not a one of them could name them.
They've just be brainwashed by MSM that "Orange man, bad".
F*** em if they cant the honor. Bless those who showed.
And, in spite of holding supposedly strong political opinions, quite a few sports players never quite get around to voting.
So did he serve fast food?
Remember....Obama served these teams NOTHING!!
He might have served ice cream but that would be work and he’d get it wrong somehow.
John Henry could Not have gotten any closer to PDJT for the photo ops.
He owns the Boston Glob and the Sox....rabid little Lieberal that he is!
Hypocrites all. Alex Cora is a crappy manager...the Sox suck this year.
Puerto Rico can go embezzle some money from another country...
Could we find another dump to pass it off to...Cuba perhaps
You say that like it’s a bad thing . . .
Here’s news for the twits that didn’t show: President Trump is very important and someone who is badly needed. You twits however are NEITHER!
Nevertheless, what a chance this is for a leader to tell minorities it's okay to like Trump for what he has done for them. It's not okay to dislike Trump because your overseer, your putative leader, tells you to dislike him.
Oh, the truth that shall not be spoken about racism: Most blacks are hard racists, most whites are not much racist.
Heres the difference:
America needs President Trump.
NOBODY needs a pro jock.
NOBODY needs a pro jock.
Another unwelcome truth.
