And now for something completely different: President Donald Trump is attacking professional athletes who are kneeling during the national anthem.
I’m sure this is a huge shock for everyone, so take a minute to catch your breath and take in this shocking new development.
Done? Okay. Putting sarcasm aside, Trump got back on the Twitter machine today, and he started things off with some more grumbling about professional footballers who don’t stand for the Star Spangled Banner. In this newest tweet, Trump expressed renewed annoyance that the NFL isn’t doing more to force their players to stand up.
At least 24 players kneeling this weekend at NFL stadiums that are now having a very hard time filling up. The American public is fed up with the disrespect the NFL is paying to our Country, our Flag and our National Anthem. Weak and out of control!

As it were, Trump’s tweet comes shortly after a Fox & Friends segment where the panel on the curvy couch spoke about the “blatant disrespect” kneelers show to the U.S. Military. They also spoke about how NFL owners need to assert control of the situation.
