White House Sent Out a Mass Email to RNC Staffers to Fill South Lawn With Fake Eagles Fans

If the alleged Eagles fans at President Donald Trump's ridiculous charade of patriotism at the White House on Tuesday looked fake, it's because they were.


“We’re all staffers,” one of the formally-dressed attendees at the event told a reporter. The individual was Jenna Webster, a student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and intern at the Republican National Committee.

She received a mass email from the White House inviting her to the event.

The absurd event found the president mumbling through "God Bless America" seemingly unaware of the words. But he remembered to plug his administration's alleged achievements.

"We’re the largest economy in the world and getting a lot larger, and fast," he told the crowd filled with phony sports fans. "It’s happened very quickly – actually, quicker than I even thought.”
