Count ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith out if he gets the opportunity to attend the White House as long as President Donald Trump is in office.
In reaction to some Philadelphia Eagles players declining the offer to celebrate their Super Bowl win at the White House, Smith said he is “ashamed” at Trump’s conduct and would also not accept an offer.
“I would not [attend] because I am ashamed at how [Trump] has conducted himself as a leader and a statesman,” Smith stated. “I’m not getting into the weeds of his policies and stuff like that. I think we all need to become more knowledgeable about the exact job that he’s doing, but in terms of their representation, the embodiment of the presidency and what it is supposed to exude, I have been ashamed at how he has conducted himself and because of that, I don’t think he could be trusted in that regard and I would not show up at the White House either.”
