On Friday night President Trump declared war on all NFL players who kneel during the national anthem. The athletes told him to back off. The league told him to back off. The media told. Celebrities told him to back off. But what did he do? He hit back harder!
Early this morning, at the crack of dawn, the President got out of bed, grabbed his trusty phone, and let the world know that NFL fans should STOP going to the games until they respect the flag AND they should fire or suspend anyone who breaks the rule.
Those are some VERY harsh words from the President, who has never hidden his feelings about athletes kneeling during the national anthem. He has made it clear that protest is fine (just look around the country), but disrespecting those who have given their lives for our great nation to do it is now.
Look, the president is not trying to arrest these athletes. They didn’t break the law. He is also not punishing the teams who defend them since they have EVERY right to do so. He is simply voicing his opinion that it should be taken more seriously.
