IF PLAYERS KNEEL IN PROTEST, TRUMP WON’T WATCH NFL!

By Peter Brennan

As COVID-19 continues to menace the world and white cops are killing black people with impunity, the subject that President Trump and his minions are focusing on is NFL players kneeling in protest of racial injustice during the national anthem.

Which, in a recent poll, a majority of Americans now endorse!

The kneeling-equals-disrespect crowd recently has turned their attention to the U.S. national soccer team, which recently repealed a rule that prohibits players from kneeling during the anthem.

The rule, passed in 2017 after Megan Rapinoe kneeled in support of Colin Kaepernick, is now gone, and those who refuse to understand that peaceful protest during the anthem isn’t about disrespecting the flag, the military, or the country (and/or those who really don’t care about the issue but think they can score points with their base by making an issue of it) are sounding off.

One of them is Jim Jordan, the Ohio shirtsleeves Congressman who has yet to face his reckoning for allegedly failing to protect Ohio State wrestlers from a sexually abusive doctor when Jordan served as an assistant coach there.

“Let me get this straight,” Jordan tweeted, “UNITED STATES Soccer won’t stand for the UNITED STATES National Anthem?”

The President retweeted Jordan’s point, with this added message for pro football from Donald Trump: And it looks like the NFL is heading in that direction also, but not with me watching!”
