In this March 8, 1984, file photo, Donald Trump shakes hands with Herschel Walker in New York after agreement on a 4-year contract with the New Jersey Generals USFL football team. The New Jersey Generals have been largely forgotten, but Trumps ownership of the team was formative in his evolution as a public figure and peerless self-publicist. With money and swagger, he led a shaky and relatively low-budget spring football league, the USFL, into a showdown with the NFL.
From the FOX News Insider:
‘Tell That Son of a B***h He’s Fired’: Trump Blasts NFL Anthem KneelersPresident Trump railed against National Football League players who have knelt during the national anthem.
Trump said that he and Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.), who he was stumping for in Huntsville, are “unified” by “great American values.”“We’re proud of our country and we’re proud of our flag,” he said.
He said players who disrespect the flag and kneel for the national anthem should be ejected from the stadium and cut from the team.
“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say ‘get that son of a b***h off the field right now – he’s fired’,” Trump said.
The clueless Jemele Hill doesn't get it.
Just so we're clear: the president's comments will only incite more player protests, not quell them.
