President Trump lashed out at NFL players protesting the national anthem on Friday while at a campaign rally for Senator Luther Strange (R-AL).
President Trump brought up the NFL players who disrespect our flag and our country by taking a knee during the National Anthem in protest.
The crowd went wild after Trump said, “Wouldn’t you love to see one of the NFL owners, when someone disrespects our flag, to say ‘get that son of b*tch off the field right now! Out! He’s fired! He’s fired!”
The crowd erupted into cheers and started chanting, “USA! USA! USA!”

Following the president’s remarks Democrat Donna Edwards called on ALL NFL Players to kneel during the National Anthem.
Democrats really hate the flag.
The Hill reported:
Former Democratic Rep. Donna Edwards (D-Md.) tweeted that she hopes all NFL players kneel during the national anthem on Sunday in response to President Trump’s remarks attacking Colin Kaepernick.
Edwards, who left Congress earlier this year, called Trump a “white supremacist who squats in our White House” in her tweet.
On Sunday, I hope every @NFL player takes a knee in solidarity w @Kaepernick7 against the white supremacist who squats in our White House.
