    Players, owners unite as Trump demands NFL ‘fire or suspend’

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.3427889eb6ca

    It's seem like he has only managed to unite owners and their players in solidarity. He calls players who kneel down during the national anthem son of a bitches, but then is upset because Lebron James called him a bum. Who started the infantile name calling?
    XVI.8: Confucius said, "There are three things of which the superior man stand in awe. He stands in awe of the ordinances of Heaven. He stands in awe of great men. He stands in awe of the words of the sages. The mean man does not know the ordinances of Heaven, and consequently does not stand in awe of them. He is disrespectful to great men. He makes sport of the words of the sages."

    This began as support for the Off The Pigs(cops)!, I Love Genocidal Socialist Slave States bozo, Colin Kaepernick. Equally despicable people seized the opportunity to turn it into an anti-Trump display.

    Your complaint is...?

    Oh, I have no complaints, Trump brought ill will upon himself, He has only unified the players and their owners. He picked a stupid fight this time. Thanks Trumpeta! To borrow a term from Lebron James, "What a bum". He is the only constantly calling/labeling people with names. He sets the tone on name calling. I personally agree with Lebron, he is a bum! And I am being kind in my comments!

    Private organizations can't violate free speech, only the government can. The NFL can choose to or not to fire anyone as long as the reason is not based on sex, race, religion, etc. or in retaliation for a sexual harassment claim.

    Trump can give his opinion on the situation, but he has no power over it. He has more important things to worry about than golfing excessively (even more than Obama) and arguing with non-government officials on Twitter and in speeches. The U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico are in terrible condition, Florida and Texas are still recovering from hurricanes, North Korea has advanced their capabilities very quickly in the very short period of time that Trump has been in office, the Republicans are trying for the 1,000th time to repeal Obamacare, Trump is trying to cut a deal with Democrats on DACA because he can't get anything done with his own party, and tax reform and infrastructure spending are supposed to be up next on the agenda.

    I don't know why this upsets Trump so much, but people knowingly marching beside white supremacists are "very fine people." If I had to choose to between being in the presence of Kaepernick or or those "very fine people" who want to celebrate traitors to the U.S., many of whom made it clear that they seceded over slavery, then I would choose Kaerpernick. Whether you agree with him or not, his intentions aren't nefarious. I can't say the same for those who glorify the Confederacy and try to sugarcoat history .

    Trump is a walking hypocrite. It took him days to call the murders in Charlottesville terrorism because he wanted to wait for the facts. He never waits when he thinks a terrorist act was carried out by Muslims. He thinks an ESPN employee should be fired for calling him a white supremacist. Should NBC have fired him for calling Obama racist more than once? I don't understand how any thinking person can take this "dotard" seriously. This president is extremely divisive. He's supposed to be more unifying than Obama? He's only capable of bringing people together in opposition to him.
