Limited Kids Cameron Heyward Jersey NFL owners were woefully mistaken if they thought their new national anthem policy would muzzle the Dog Whistler in Chief.
Predictably, President Donald Trump praised the NFL for its new policy Thursday morning. But in the same breath, he聽doubled down on his criticism of players who protest, suggesting they shouldn’t be in the country.As shocking and offensive a statement as that was, nobody should have been surprised by it.
Short of rescinding the sale of the Buffalo Bills or banning black players from the league, nothing the NFL does will ever be good enough for Trump. That’s because he has 鈥?rightly 鈥?figured out that he can use the league as his personal football to rile up his base and further divide the nation.

With the mid-term elections looming as a referendum on Trump’s presidency, he’s going to pull out every racist and bigoted trope he can to convince his base Ramon Humber Jersey that American exceptionalism 鈥?read: white exceptionalism 鈥?is under siege, and it’s these black and brown people who are to blame.

McNair said in his deposition that, while he is opposed to players kneeling, he also wished that Trump hadn’t spoken the way he did on the issue.

Americans continue to argue whether players disrespect the U.S. flag and military when they protest, rather than discuss police officers’ actions toward people of color.
