The athletes who are protesting the National Anthem are totally DISRESPECTFUL AND UNPATRIOTIC to the country that has given them so much. They picked the wrong forum and manner on this issue. The national anthem and flag are honored at sporting events for veterans that served and gave their life for our country.
During a campaign rally in Great Falls, Mont., President Trump on Thursday said the NFL’s new national anthem policy is “worse” than the old policy.
Watch the video below!
According to Breitbart:
Trump said: “Hey, how about the NFL? Look, I don’t want to cause controversy. . . . But how about they pass this stupid thing. You don’t have to do this anymore. If you don’t respect the flag, or if you don’t like the country, or whatever it is. Just go into the locker room. . . . I think in many respects, that’s worse. Isn’t that worse than not standing? I think that’s worse. . . . I actually think in many ways it’s worse:”
Trump then set the commissioner in his sights:
I heard this thing, they were so happy, the owners. This Commissioner, where this guy comes from I have no [idea]. They’re paying him $40 million a year, and their ratings are down 20 percent. But you know why their ratings are down? Yes, the flag. But they’re also down because people find politics — in other words, hitting Trump, incorrectly, but hitting Trump — they find that to be much tougher, meaner, and more interesting than watching a football game. They actually do. And they’re watching the cable networks instead of watching football.

They’ll take the money, but they hate America, the police, and the military. They have a right to kneel. We have a right to not watch the poor ingrates who are so downtrodden and never had a chance to achieve the American dream. What a bunch of jerks. They should have taken all their money and gone to the ghettos and help the poor instead of complaining. They should have tried to change things.
The NFL made a choice to support those that disrespect every patriotic American citizen, our flag, our anthem, our military, and police! KEEP BOYCOTTING THE NFL, SPONSORS, NETWORKS, AND MERCHANDISE!!
Turn off your tv for football, basketball and movies and so on. Get outside and enjoy life. Why do we feel the need to be constantly entertained?
