How retarded is this knee-bending bullshit? The latest episode of clown-car lemmingbowl was kicked off in 2016, when former San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for the National Anthem in protest of white cops shooting black people.
A handful of other players joined the now unemployed quarterback in his knee-bending, which has since morphed into an anti-government / anti-Trump gesture.
Fast forward to a Friday night rally in Huntsville, Alabama in support of Republican Luther Strange – in which President Trump started veering off topic to the NFL.
“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners,” said Trump, “when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, out. He’s fired. He’s fired!’ ”

Trump followed up with a tweet the next day:
Roger Goodell of NFL just put out a statement trying to justify the total disrespect certain players show to our country.Tell them to stand!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 23, 2017
The President didn’t stop there:
If NFL fans refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our Flag & Country, you will see change take place fast. Fire or suspend!

The entire Pittsburgh Steelers team stayed in the locker room, with the exception of former US Army Captain, Ranger, and Bronze Star recipient Alejandro Villanueva – who served three tours in Afghanistan.

Yes – the NFL, whose players are arrested an average of every seven days, which fines players for dancing in the endzone, is suddenly the new face of the ‘resistance’ against tyranny.
Fuck me to tears, I’m with Ben Shapiro on this:

Trump says owners should fire players for kneeling.
Dems say all players should kneel.
Everything is stupid.
