Ignore the Backlash, Our National Anthem is Not the Place for Protest
Ignoring the backlash against his rebuke of US Flag and National Anthem protests in the NFL, US President Donald Trump tweeted his approval of “solidarity” shown Sunday by those standing in locked arms, adding “kneeling is not acceptable” and ripping the NFL for its “bad ratings.”
Also, Rep. Pete King, (R-NY), Tweeted his own support of President Trump’s NFL rebuke, saying he is “proud to stand with Trump” to show support for National Anthem, “America’s military, and police.”
In the equally defiant NBA, The Golden State Warriors declined to accept the White House invitation extended to the league champion, their loss as I see things.
The NHL Stanley Cup champions apparently will not stage the same protest, as President Trump also tweeted Sunday afternoon.
Have a terrific week.
