Having canceled the Eagles’ visit to the White House, President Trump has politicized invitations to winning sport teams. In retrospect we can see that the Penguins’ visit after their win was a mistake, and they were mistaken in their belief that some things are not political. The president disinvited the Eagles, he said, because they disagreed with him, which makes all visits to the White House political acts. We can only hope that the winners of this year’s Stanley Cup will retain their right to free speech and avoid a visit that would be no honor to them.
