People Love Football More Than Trump

3.4 million Puerto Ricans are fighting for survival and this dotard is tweeting about kneeling at a professional football game. Talk about taking your eyes off the prize. Americans love sports—football, basketball, baseball, hell, even professional soccer—and Trump might have fired the first shot across the bow of a battleship he can’t sink. LeBron James is absolutely beloved. And if GOP-lackey Tom Brady thinks Trump should back off against the NFL, Trump might have finally found the one thing he can’t out maneuver. #45 already has a rich history of mucking up professional sports. He killed the USFL. There’s a great 30 for 30 on ESPN about his role. In addition, in 2014 he made a run at purchasing the Buffalo Bills. Can you imagine if he had gotten the Bills? I seriously doubt he would have run for president simply because he’d finally be in an elite fraternity of rich, white guys that he so desperately wants to join.

Should you take a knee? No. Are you allowed to? Absolutely. The idea that protesting the National Anthem ceremony makes you un-American is ridiculous. It’s one of the most patriotic things you can do—especially in a time where the majority of athletes of the NFL are African-American and there is a resurgence of violence against Blacks. But like everything else this horrible man has done, he marches head first towards the very swamp he promised to drain. He didn’t condemn the violent protests in VA, he isn’t working around the clock to help the victims of the recent three hurricanes and is trading barbs with that equally violent, idiotic madman in North Korea.

But he’ll go toe-to-toe with the NFL.

If there was ever a clear-cut example that he fails the 25th Amendment test, it’s the fact that he thought he was bigger than the game.
