Trump to NFL owners: Fire “son-of-a-b**ch” players who don’t stand for national anthem
During his rally in Alabama, Trump bragged about his friendship with NFL owners and said protesters should be firedCharlie May 09.23.2017•9:24 AM
At a rally in Huntsville, Alabama, on Friday night President Donald Trump criticized football players who have refused to stand during the national anthem, and encouraged National Football League team owners to fire the “son of a bitch” athletes who participate in the silent protest.
The president was in Alabama to endorse Sen. Luther Strange as the state’s special election approaches next week. Trump ranted about a wide range of issues as usual, but singled out NFL players who have chosen to silently protest police brutality against black Americans by not standing for the national anthem, and called for them to fired.
The protests have sparked nationwide controversy and debate since former 49ers quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, began kneeling during the anthem last year. Kaepernick has yet to have been offered a job since he opted out of his contract last June, and many have argued that the NFL has shunned him. Trump did not drop Kaepernick’s name, but his words were directly attributed to the movement the former player created.
“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects or flag, to say, “get that son-of-a-bitch off the field right now,” Trump said as the crowd erupted. “Out, he’s fired.”
The president added with even more enthusiasm, “he’s fired!” as the crowd continued to applaud him. Trump stepped back from the podium, paced in a circle around the stage, and flailed his arms around to energize the crowd that cheered for the firing of players who quietly and peacefully protest injustice.
