Kaepernick is not going to like this. Trump just put the SMACKDOWN on him and players like him…
Some NFL players are joining Colin Kaepernick’s protest of “oppression and inequality” in the United States by kneeling or sitting during the National Anthem. Most recent among them are: Brandon Marshall, of the Denver Broncos; Arian Foster, Michael Thomas, Jelani Jenkins, and Kenny Stills of the Miami Dolphins; Martellius Bennett, Devin McCourty, and Marcus Peters of the Kansas City Chiefs.
These players are celebrities, and millionaires, and have become so, obviously, in the United States of America.
Speaking on Fox & Friends, Donald Trump had a few choice words for these complainers:
“I think it’s a lack of respect for our country,” Trump said on Fox & Friends. “It’s a lack of appreciation for our country and it’s a very sad thing. I have never seen anything quite like it. You’re talking about a major sport, maybe the major sport. When you see that, it leads to a lot of other things. I think it’s lack of respect and appreciation of our country.”
Trump reiterated Kaepernick — and now the other players — should leave the U.S.
“They should try another country, see if they like it better, see how well they’ll be doing, see if they’ll make $20 million a year being a second-string quarterback,” Trump said.
Trump did go on to say that freedom of expression is important.
