Trump slams players, NFL responds by taking a knee

It’s the sports world versus Trump today…

At a political rally Friday night, PRESIDENT TRUMP said NFL owners should fire players who kneel for the national anthem.  Fast forward to Sunday, and the protests were more widespread than ever.  A lot of players either knelt during the anthem, or stood with their arms locked together. Some teams didn’t even take the field until the song was over.


The protest even spread outside the NFL.  Oakland A’s catcher Bruce Maxwell became the first Major League Baseball player to kneel.

But then there’s NASCAR.  At yesterday’s ISM Connect 300 in New Hampshire, NOBODY took a knee.  And Richard Petty said he’d fire anyone on his team who did.

 

In basketball, Steph Curry said he didn’t want to go to the White House for the Golden State Warriors’ championship celebration, so President Trump disinvited him.  Now the team isn’t going, and LeBron James  Tweeted, quote, “U bum, Steph Curry already said he ain’t going!  So therefore ain’t no invite.  Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!”
