As the National Football League continues to slowly twist upon the tree of woe, President Donald Trump has waded into the fray with a blistering criticism of the malcontents who are protesting the national anthem.
During a rousing speech in Huntsville, Alabama on Friday night, the POTUS blasted the oppressed multimillionaires who sit on their asses or take a knee during the playing of the Star-Spangled Banner, a childish gesture made against the very country in which the system has allowed them to become wealthy for playing a game.
The man who built a successful business empire before entering the realm of politics suggested that NFL owners FIRE players who are disrespecting the flag in such a manner.
This is a point that has been made by some – including this humble author – who point out that in practically any other workplace in the country, engaging in such conduct that embarrasses the employer while one is on the clock and in uniform would quickly result in the person doing it being escorted out of the building by security with their personal items in a box.

Via the Washington Examiner “Trump: NFL players who disrespect American flag should be fired”:
President Trump said he would love to see owners of NFL teams fire any player that disrespects the American flag.
“Luther and I and everyone in this arena tonight are unified by the same great American values,” Trump said at a rally for Sen. Luther Strange, who facing a runoff election in Alabama.
Led by quarterback Colin Kaepernick, a number of players took a knee starting last season during the national anthem to protest the treatment of African American and minorities in the U.S.
“We are proud of our country. We respect our flag,” Trump said on Friday. “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. He is fired. He’s fired!'”
Leftists and racial grievance mongers were quick to scream bloody murder that Trump had called the hallowed “race messiah” Kaepernick himself a “son of a bitch” although that wasn’t the case at all. He was generally speaking about ALL of the sons of bitches who have ruined the game for millions with their constant whining about race and leftist political causes.
The thoroughly useless and fully politicized ACLU was quick to attack the President:
This is the President of the United States referring to an American who has exercised his right to protest racial injustice. https://t.co/Tb764vWjuT

Did anyone notice that when it comes to NFL players spitting on the flag that their biggest supporters are race-baiting cranks, attention-seeking prima donnas and liberal fruitbags who never paid any attention to football BEFORE the Kaepernick era began last summer?
This could be the NFL’s worst nightmare because now it’s hard to see how the national anthem protests won’t multiply because like all of the other protests and rallies, the real beef isn’t about the alleged causes which are of tertiary importance, but rather about Trump himself.
Already facing plummeting television ratings and thousands of empty seats in stadiums that used to be packed, a rise in protests as a method of retaliating against Trump will only drive more people away until all that are left are the malcontents.
