Trump Slams NFL Players For Kneeling During National Anthem In Preseason Game

Several athletes took a knee in protest during Thursday’s national anthem, and Trump tweeted his displeasure.


President Donald Trump slammed several NFL players who knelt during preseason games on Thursday.

“The NFL players are at it again,” Trump tweeted Friday morning, suggesting players should just “be happy, be cool!”


The Miami Dolphins’ Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson both knelt Thursday night during a preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Dolphins’ Robert Quinn raised his fist during the playing of the anthem.

Stills said he and Wilson did not coordinate their protest ahead of Thursday’s game.

“It just happened that way,” Stills said, according to ESPN. “When I’m on a knee, most of the time I’m praying, and thank God for having Albert next to me. Being a part of this protest hasn’t been easy. I thought I was going to be by myself out there. Today I had an angel with me with Albert being out there. I’m grateful he sees what’s happening, and he wants to do something about it as well.”


After the game, Wilson said violent incidents near his hometown of Port St. Lucie, Florida, inspired him to take part in the protest.

“It’s just something that’s been heavy on my heart, heavy on my mind,” he said, according to The Palm Beach Post. “Just two incidents in my city that happened. I’m pretty much the biggest thing in my city, so I have a chance to take a stance on it.”

Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick started the peaceful protest against racial inequality in 2016 by kneeling during the playing of the national anthem.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced a ban on the kneeling protests in May. The NFL and the NFL Players Association agreed to suspend enforcement of the new rules in July, after The Associated Press reported the Dolphins would suspend players for up to four games for protesting.

I'll be so happy when this orange asshole is no longer a figure on my TV.

Maybe he should watch hockey. Watch something that has nothing black anywhere to be seen. When does he run this joint called a "country?" Perhaps one day he'll find a coat jacket that fits and he won't constantly have to "yank on it." Maybe he can delete a couple inches of cloth from his pecker covers called ties. He's disgusting. Yeah, I said it.

  He's too busy tweeting to run the country.  He got his foot soldiers doing that.  And they are bailing out one by one until it's only gonna be him and Putin.  I think if he keep this stunt up, his own wife [who by the way  is an immigrant] will bail out on him like his first wife [who by the way is an immigrant too] did.  He talks about being against chain migration and he's doing it...and has done it THREE times.  Plus his mother was an immigrant.  So what is his beef about immigration?  Or is this an elite thing?  No immigrant can get citizenship unless it is from the WH?  To me I just don't think he likes the American people....[which includes all of us and white people who disagree with him].  He's shown the country and the world who he I don't understand why he's still in office.  Many say they don't want Pence to replace him cuz he's worse.  But he will go too as soon as he prove he is not for the people and do not represent ALL Americans.  Cuz that's the bottom line. Trump tells the FBI not to destroy but that's exactly what he is doing.....destroying every thing  American.  But !

Every damn white person breathing in this country is an IMMIGRANT. What were these fuckers. Pilgrims, Vampires, Japanese Snow Monkeys??  White men are all over my TV like roaches and bees. Ugly on top of ugly. Fighting in Charlottsville, crashing airplane after totally losing his mind (good thing he didn't take a whole heap with him), air bagging/wind bragging what they're going to do once their elected to this and that. Makeup's not helping the dudes from Trump's administration.. They're a scary lot. Trump looks like a tangerine balloon. Malania needs a bustle. She got slightly gypped in the ass department.

White, white, all the time white!!!! DAMN!!!!!! Move to The Netherlands or Iceland. Make a Polar Bear a pet before all the ice melts. Go to WHITIE LAND, quick fast and in a damn hurry. You're driving us as crazy as you are. No one's going to be alive, keep this shit up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I agree Sista Sunnubian.  But Trump is on the "black attack."  And has attacked black folks since the first day in office.  I'm just waiting for him to slip and call Omarosa the N word.  Cuz right now?  He is losing his mind.  And the gall he thinks black folks have to defy him and KNEEL any focking way when he specifically told them not to. And they did!  Wow!   His focus to put blacks back in their place is reflected on his twits where he is insulting African Americans like he is in a locker room.  And no one white says a thing.  The white folks who says they have our backs-haven't said one word about his rants against AA.  This man.  The President of the United States of America is losing his mind on twitter.  At every turn when it comes down to someone black.  He has to say something!    And I project that that will be his downfall.  It's coming.  Because people are realizing quickly if he is coming for them folks there?  And have went after others.....soon he will be coming for them.  So they are panicking and uniting.  And that is why at Washington Alt-right rally....very few whites showed up.  Cuz on the other side of the street?  Hundreds and hundreds of protesters are being seen and heard.  Loudly.  Cuz now is time to rise up.  Be counted.  Don't think about fear.....cuz it's an illusion and a distraction and a psychological tactic.  Focus on the rights of ALL people in the country.....and along with fear disappearing from view...those demons who are out there trying to make America great again will disappear too.  But its gon take ALL OF US.  Cuz no matter what anyone says.....Trump is losing and he's losing fast.  Don't believe me?  Watch!  He is gon be the master  of his own downfall.  So we have to be prepared when it happens....and it will.  But!

Where in hell is our "place"? The cotton fields or warming their beds?? Why in hell don't they all go back to their PLACE??? Try the Netherlands or better yet, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Russia, Switzerland; wherever these creeps originated. May they find some Noxema and Spot Remover for the dots and creases all over those unmasked faces. I'm tired of them scaring the shit out of me every day on my TV and in Walmart.
