Many NFL players have now followed on Kaepernick’s footsteps and kneeled during the national anthem to protest black oppression in the United States. Instead of actually doing something to solve the problem, like donating to schools in underprivileged areas, they are disrespecting our flag and thinking they made a difference.
“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners — when somebody disrespects our flag — to say, ‘Get that son of a b*tch off the field right now! He’s fired.’ Some owner is going to do that,” said President Trump at a rally.
Judge Jeanine Pirro had a lot to say about the NFL as well. “The biggest issue facing our country today is the tip-toeing and political correctness that has brought us to the brink of disaster in national security, politics and sports. The question: Do we have the fortitude, courage and determination to stand up to those who threaten our values?” said Pirro.
“Shame on you. Shame on all of you. And shame on you, too, Roger Goodell for not showing that you love this country as much as the president does when you had the chance,” said Pirro.
She also criticized athletes for doing nothing to fix problems. All they are doing is “disrespecting our country.” Check out the video below.
