The leader of the free world, Donald Trump, will show his disdain for the NFL with a boycott if players kneel for the national anthem in the upcoming season.
President Trump made his threat during a Friday morning tweet that initially took aim at Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Remember, earlier this week Fauci warned America that a second wave of COVID-19 could impact pro sports — and said straight-up, “Football may not happen this year.”
“It would be very hard to see how football is able to be played this fall,” Fauci told CNN. “If there is a second wave, which is certainly a possibility and which would be complicated by the predictable flu season, football may not happen this year.”
Taking a knee to fight white supremacy must really bother Trump because he’s a white supremacist. He falsely accused the Central Park 5 of rape, falsely accused President Obama of being born in Kenya, and called black NFL players sons of bitches for taking the knee agaibst racism
