The ESPN Double Standard 

In 2012, after winning the Stanley Cup, Boston Bruins Goaltender Tim Thomas refused to go to the White House, explaining: “I believe the Federal government has grown out of control, threatening the Rights, Liberties, and Property of the People.” In response to Thomas’ protest, ESPN Staff Writer Joe McDonald scolded the goaltender for his decision. On Wednesday, Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles after learning that as few as ten players planned to attend a White House celebration. Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian’s recent trip to the White House resulted in the commutation of Alice Marie Johnson. Rich wonders if players could have enacted similar change by bringing their causes to the attention of President Trump.
