NFL player protests exploded Sunday after President Trump lashed out at the players for kneeling during the national anthem on Friday while at a campaign rally for Senator Luther Strange (R-AL).
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!”
At least a dozen NFL players kneeled during the anthem before the London game today between the Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars.
They did this in London.
These same players who knelt during the national anthem stood for the British anthem ‘God Save the Queen’. Unreal.
In London, those who were not kneeling, including the coaches on both teams and Jaguars owner Shahid Khan, locked arms during the national anthem at the game in London’s Wembley Stadium. Players taking a knee during the performance included Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs and C.J. Mosley, wide receiver Mike Wallace and safety Lardarius Webb as well as Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette, linebacker Dante Fowler, defensive tackle Calais Campbell, defensive end Yannick Ngakoue and cornerback Jalen Ramsey.
The players then stood up for “God Save the Queen,” the British anthem.

Navy SEAL Robert O’Neill ripped the Ravens and Jaguars:
Ravens and Jaguars kneel for The National Anthem on foreign soil but stand for God Save the Queen. Clueless…
