I hate to be that guy, I do but another perspective is that they have the right to protest and if anything, in my opinion, Trump has disrespected America far more than any athlete. From what I read (only in the Sunday newspaper because I avoid online news media), this statement was specifically toward Trump. In the article I read it had snippets from his Twitter of course. So I went on Twitter to see for myself and Trump’s feed is backlashing the NFL and bashing Senator McCain for opposing the health bill. If what these players are doing is truly disrespecting our nation than they are merely following Trump’s lead.
