WATCH: Diamond & Silk Rip Eagles Players For Snubbing White House: ‘Man Up and Talk’

Diamond & Silk aren’t afraid to speak their mind. Now they are firing back at Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins. Diamond said, “Shame on him, that he don’t know how to man up and stand up and go talk to the president [who] can go help him with these issues in the inner and urban cities, and with reform [to] the justice system.”

Eagles receiver Torrey Smith voiced why he will not be going to the White House on “The Nation” on CNN.

The third player who will not be going to the White House is defensive end Chris Long, the son of  Raider Hall of Famer Howie Long. Long took to Twitter to express his dismay over Trump saying there were “good people” on both sides when protesters and white supremacists clashed in Charlottesville. Long grew up in Charlottesville and took exception to the comment.

Here is the video from Fox News where Diamond & Silk call out the NFL players who are passing on their visit to the White House.

More, per Fox News Insider:

Jenkins added that he would rather spend time working with other leaders on “issues we’ve been fighting for.”

“It’s sad, because it’s a great honor when you [receive] an invite to the White House,” Hardaway responded on “Fox & Friends.”

She said Jenkins is “still stuck in that Democratic plantation mindset. [He’s] being controlled by the dog whistlers that feed [him] a narrative.”

“Shame on him, that he don’t know how to man up and stand up and go talk to the president [who] can go help him with these issues in the inner and urban cities, and with reform [to] the justice system.”

At least two other Eagles players have also announced plans to boycott the team’s visit with Trump.

Progress could be made by both sides with some communication. Instead the left will opt for hating Trump as usual.
