For example: Over the last weekend he tweeted twice about North Korea, twice about the Health Care bill, zero times about Puerto Rico's apocalyptic devastation by Hurricane Maria and "20" times about the NFL's disrespect for the national anthem."

President Donald Trump, on Monday morning, continued to bash NFL players who kneel or otherwise protest during the US national anthem before games. In a series of tweets, he pointed out that "many people booed" the protesting players, and he again denied the issue was race-related.

On Friday while speaking at a rally in Alabama, Trump had derided NFL players who chose to kneel during the national anthem to protest police violence against black people, saying: "Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, 'Get that son of a b---- off the field right now, out — he's fired!'"

Teams, players, and commissioner Roger Goodell responded with statements defending players' right to kneel. Goodell said the president's comments showed an "unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL.

In 14 NFL games on Sunday, dozens of NFL players responded to Trump's criticism from earlier in the weekend by kneeling or otherwise protesting during the anthem. Before the game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Tennessee Titans, both teams stayed in their locker room to avoid the spectacle entirely. Elsewhere, while some players knelt, others stood with arms linked in a display of unity.

Over an hour after kickoff, the president tweeted about the protests again, saying, "Standing with locked arms is good — kneeling is not acceptable."
Beyond NFL players, some artists performing the national anthem knelt in protest.
While Trump demanded on Monday that the NFL "must respect" the US's flag and anthem, and on Friday said NFL owners should fire players who protest, he has not suggested any legislation or legal action, which would most likely restrict the players' First Amendment right to acts of free speech.
But what about the protest? Police violence against black Americans is a very real issue. We have seen example after example in the past few years when witnesses have recorded the violence on their cell phones. It is right to protest any kind of inhumanity.
What better forum to bring attention to the problem than a stadium full of people and with millions watching at home ? Mr Trump hasn't tweeted about the reason for the protest. And I guess he won't, since he gives a kindly nod to white supremacists and glosses over the Nazis' Third Reich. As usual, he aggravates and escalates a situation rather than solving it.


  1. Great article , tRUMP should get on with the business at hand , running the country and taking care of everyone concern (Allies) .
    I notice he will take a stick , stir in in sh*t to make it stink to take the heat off himself and family / friends if he has any friends (I doubt it) not true friends anyway ,

    Great job.
    Love you

    This is his usual behavior. Try to make others look bad so he will look good. He doesn't realize most people are too smart to be fooled. No one else would be caught dead in that tie.
    love you too
