Love him or hate him, only Donald Trump would call out the Niggerball Football League for not firing it’s racist Negros who kneel during the National Anthem.
Maxine Waters is going to be calling for impeachment. Hillary will claim that Trump needs to have his head examined. Republicans will condemn Trump’s remarks. Sportscasters will go ape-sh*t.
President Donald Trump slammed the NFL this evening for what he called the league’s tolerance of players showing disrespect to the U.S.
Speaking to a crowd in Huntsville, Alabama, where Trump is campaigning for Luther Strange ahead of the Senate runoff for the Republican primary, Trump insisted the NFL take a stronger stance.
“Wouldn’t you love to see one of the NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say ‘Get that son of a b—- off the field right now?'” he continued to thunderous applause and cheers.
“You know, some owner … is going to say, ‘That guy who disrespects our flag, he’s fired,'” Trump said.
Trump went on to encourage people to “leave the stadium” to protest people doing things like kneeling during the national anthem. “I guarantee things will stop,” he said.
He also seemed to suggest efforts to prevent injuries were “ruining the game.”
“Because you know today if you hit too hard: Fifteen yards. Throw him out of the game,” Trump said. “… They want to hit. It is hurting the game.”

Trump delivers unhinged rant on NFL, calls Colin Kaepernick a ‘son of a bitch’
The president is angry.
Kaepernick has not been signed by an NFL team this season, despite possessing more talent and experience than many other quarterbacks on NFL rosters. Last year, he began taking a knee during the national anthem to protest the oppression of racial minorities.
Other players have continued the anthem protests in Kaepernick’s absence.
Trump has taken credit for Kaepernick’s inability to find work. “It was reported that NFL owners don’t want to pick him up because they don’t want to get a nasty tweet from Donald Trump,” Trump told a cheering crowd in Kentucky this July. “Do you believe that? I just saw that. I just saw that.”
In Alabama on Friday, Trump suggested that any fan who sees a player take a knee during an NFL game should “leave the stadium…pick up and leave.” He said that people wouldn’t be missing much anyway since the league has made modest efforts aimed at avoiding debilitating brain injuries. “They are ruining the game,” Trump said.
