President Trump was back doing two of his favorite things on Friday. He was tweeting and weighing in on National Anthem protests.
Trump called on NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to suspend players for the season if they protest during the National Anthem.
The NFL National Anthem Debate is alive and well again – can’t believe it! Isn’t it in contract that players must stand at attention, hand on heart? The $40,000,000 Commissioner must now make a stand. First time kneeling, out for game. Second time kneeling, out for season/no pay!

The NFL has already blackballed the person who started the protests. You would think that would be good enough.
You would also think that Trump would have more important things to do. You know, like run a country. This might not ever end.
