    It’s just lip service. He knows, as does everyone else, that protesting the anthem is a slight against America

    Of course it's wrong to call players who take a knee unpatriotic, but when has being wrong stopped Trump or any right winger from doing anything?

    Racial injustice and police brutality are part of American culture and woven into the fabric of our society.

    Not so much now as it was in the past, but that's what the right is trying so hard to restore. It's a big part of what they call making America great again.

    Protesting the national anthem in the name of racial justice, would be like me protesting the simpsons because I don’t like cnn. It’s misdirected rage, and hostility towards a country that has given these spoiled brats so much
