At his rally last night in Alabama for Senate candidate Luther Strange, President Trump hit on a number of issues.
For example, he called out Sen. John McCain for once again saving Obamacare – despite having campaigned against it.
Also, 45 made it abundantly clear where he stands on NFL players who kneel for the national anthem. Spoiler alert: he thinks those SOBs should be fired for being disrespectful.
A few NFL stars decided to fire back, including Detroit Lions tight end, Eric Ebron…
Does anyone tell trump to stick to politics, like they tell us to stick to sports? Smh.

It’s a shame and disgrace when you have the President of the US calling citizens of the country sons of a bitches.

Not sure about you, but I’m with the NFL players on this one.
The bottom line is that Trump was very wrong to say what he said the way that he said it.
While we as conservatives and Republicans may not appreciate seeing millionaires kneel during the anthem, that is their right as Americans.
Never mind that NFL players are mostly political novices who have no clue what they’re protesting. The fact is, again, they have the right to kneel – and don’t you forget that. Don’t side with Trump on this issue just because you think you have to as a Republican.
Of course, on the other hand, if the average American started a protest in his or her place of business there’s a decent chance that that person would be fired.
It’s a catch-22, but the president’s comments are not going to help anything.
