President Donald Trump to attend Army-Navy game in Philadelphia

Source: 6ABC.com

The White House confirmed Trump's attendance to The Associated Press on Tuesday. Trump also went to the 2016 game when he was president-elect.

Trump will be the 10th sitting president to attend Army-Navy, a tradition that began with Theodore Roosevelt in 1901. Barack Obama was the most recent president to attend the game, in 2011 at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland.

Navy athletic director Chet Gladchuk said at the annual pregame luncheon in Philadelphia last week that that school is always prepared for the president to attend.

The 108th football meeting between Army and Navy will be the 20th game attended by a president. The Commander-in-Chief traditionally switches sides of the field at halftime.

The epic Army-Navy game makes its return to Philadelphia. Cadets from West Point and Midshipmen from Annapolis will square off at Lincoln Financial Field for a matchup between the historic rivals.

Traditionally played on the second Saturday in December, the heated bout often marks the last game of the season for both teams.

6. Lol


Although it is indeed unusual for the president to switch over to an entirely different country altogether.

22. I wouldn't be surprised if he counts this as a 'visit to the Troops.' You know the military that he

refuses to visit Overseas because he thinks he might get killed; and because he didn't think they should be there in the first place. . Yes don't visit our Troops Overseas because you didn't send them there, and because you don't believe they should be there in the first place. Well guess what? Those troops didn't vote to send themselves Overseas but they ARE there and everyday they risk life and limb carrying out their mission; on behalf of YOU, a lowlife sonofabitch that claims to support the Troops but thus far hasn't done a damn thing to prove it.

24. Correct. He attended in 2016, but not in 2017

(In 2017 he tweeted that he was going to watch "remotely."

11. It took an 8 car motorcade to haul his fat ass across the street today.

250 Yards and the low energy tRump decides to take the car. How the hell are they going to get him into a stadium and switch sides? Bet he decides not to switch sides.

12. THAT they actually can't do...

Your First Amendment Rights are amendment by the UCMJ when you join the Military:

10. Thank you.

Not only Veterans Day, but the centennial of the WWI armistice. You know, the war that the first Unknown died in.

15. Normally I wouldn't go out of my way to trash someone over every little thing...

But for Kaptain Kandy Korn I make an exception.

Of course he can find the time to attend this right?

I HOPE IT RAINS ON YOU DONALD.

26. Something twitterrump can perhaps handle...

Lots of action
No kneeling
HUGE text on scoreboard showing simple words to read
Colorful uniforms, both on the field and in the crowd
Loud bands
Raked grass (probably fake grass) under the goal posts
Instant replay for nodding off moments
