Sarah Sanders Defends Trump Remarks on ‘SOB’ Players: ‘Always Appropriate’ to Defend the Flag

Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended President Trump‘s comments about “SOB” NFL players kneeling during the national anthem.

Fox News’ John Roberts asked Sanders if the President went “too far” with that SOB remark in particular. Huckabee Sanders said, “I think that it’s always appropriate for the President of the United States to defend our flag, to defend the national anthem, and to defend the men and women who fought and died to defend it.”

NBC’s Peter Alexander brought up how Trump has tweeted more about the NFL than Puerto Rico, as well as asking what message it sends about him criticizing players exercising their First Amendment rights.

Huckabee Sanders again said that it’s “always appropriate” for the President to defend the flag and ask people to “respect it.”
