NFL Roger Goodell says Trump’s “son-of-a-bitch” comment on Colin Kaepernick demonstrate an “unfortunate lack of respect” for the league and its players .”

National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell said on Saturday that President Donald Trump had demonstrated a “unfortunate lack of respect” for the league and its players by suggesting that team owners should get rid of players who disrespect the flag.

“Divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for 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 in a statement, which not did not explicitly mention the president.

The president was addressing the actions of NFL players who have protested during the national anthem, following the example of former San Francisco 49ers Quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who started the national anthem protests last season amid a wave of protests about police violence. “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘get that son of a bitch off the field right now – he’s fired, Trump said at a rally in Alabama for Sen. Luther Strange.  More from Politico here.

Trump continues to threaten Hillary Clinton with jail at September Alabama rally!

Trump continues to threaten Hillary Clinton with jail at September Alabama rally!

It is completely insane on many levels for a president to suggest that he would jail his political opponents. Unlike Trump, there is no evidence that Hillary Clinton committed a crime. There is no reason for Clinton to be prosecuted for anything. All she did was win the popular vote over Donald Trump. The President has reached a dangerous level of crazy where he and his rabid cult are demanding the imprisonment of those who oppose them.

This is not democracy. This is not the United States of America.

Trump is off his rocker, and the people all political beliefs who love their country must come together to stop this mentally unstable threat to the nation.  More from Politics USA.
