“You have to stand proudly for the national anthem or you shouldn’t be playing, you shouldn’t be there. Maybe you shouldn’t be in the country.” --Trump
I know that the NFL is a private corporation (that also receives subsidies from US taxpayers, so they are federally subsidized). I understand that players have to conform to the rules and regs of what the team owners set out in the players' contracts.
But I didn't know that the American people would be dumb enough to vote for a POTUS who suggests that Americans who protest an injustice should be thrown out of their own country. I expect to hear those anti-American words from Communist dictators, authoritarians, and strongmen. But those words came out of the mouth of a man who knows nothing about being an American or what makes America great.
New NFL Policy Requires All Players To Honor Patriotic Spirit Of Subservience That American Flag Represents
Trump makes America cringe everytime he opens his ignorant maw.
