—and levying threats, that should be enough winning to let Trump forget about the NFL’s stadium boondoggle.
Moreover, now that Goodell, Jerry Jones, and the rest of the NFL owners have made their intention to subvert the protests clear, to the point of fiddling with the rules—without telling anyone!
For the 22nd time in the last few weeks, a football thing set off Donald Trump and he took out his anger online.“Why is the NFL getting massive tax breaks while at the same time disrespecting our Anthem, Flag and Country?
” the president tweeted earlier this week, even though nonviolent protests in no way intended to show disrespect for the unnecessarily capitalized anthem, flag, and country. ”It’s a continuation of his windmill-tilting spat with the NFL, one that really began to pick up steam after a stump speech on Sept.
