It's Sunday Football in America, and Trump is calling football players sons of bitches!
In another of his infantile tweetstorms, Trump suggested football players should be fired for taking a knee during the National Anthem.
The reaction from football players, owners, and the leagues commissioner, was one of disgust and alarm. The consensus was Trump needs to stick to politics and leave sports alone.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell released a statement Saturday morning in response to Mr. Trump's comments.
"Divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players, and a failure to understand the overwhelming force for good our clubs and players represent in our communities," Goodell said.
Trump doubled down on his hateful speech by saying that any owner who followed his encouragement would become the "Most popular person in the country - at least for a week."
The NFL Players Association also reacted to Trump's comments Saturday morning in a statement.
"We will never back down. We no longer can afford to stick to sports," executive director DeMaurice Smith said.
"This union ... will never back down when it comes to constitutional rights of our players as citizens as well as their safety as men in a game that exposes them to great risks."
Time for me to walk on down the road...
