A Chumph Lynching – NFL Football Players

23 Sep

So much for the Chumph fulfilling his oath of office to defend the Constitution…

This tow-bit charlatan joke of a president who smears the office by going after people who have done no crime.

Respect this piece of shit…How?

The Meaning of Trump’s Attack on Colin Kaepernick

In a speech Friday night, Trump urged NFL owners to fire players who protest. “Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, out. He’s fired. He’s fired!”

Speaking to a crowd in Huntsville, Alabama Friday night, President Trump said he hoped NFL players who knelt during the national anthem—which they’ve done to protest unjustified police killings of black Americans—would lose their jobs.

“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners,  when somebody disrespects our flag,” Trump said, “to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, out. He’s fired. He’s fired!’ ” The crowd of supporters erupted in cheers. The president appeared to be referring to  former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who last year began kneeling during the national anthem to draw attention to unjustified killings of black men by law enforcement.

This is the second time in as many weeks that the president or one of his subordinates has called for black sports figures to be fired for expressing opinions he found distasteful. Last week Trump demanded an apology for a series of tweets in which the ESPN anchor Jemele Hill described him as a white supremacist; earlier White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders had argued Hill should be fired for her criticism of the president. The president has been generally hostile to criticism and protest throughout his tenure—early in his presidency he labeled the press an “enemy of the people” out of frustration with critical coverage of his administration.

Some NFL players have been kneeling in protest in solidarity with Kaepernick, who is currently unemployed because of a league-wide backlash against his political views.

The president’s condemnations of Kaepernick and like-minded players, as well as Hill, stand in stark contrast to his earlier, sluggish reaction to the white supremacist protest in Charlottesville, in which a counter-protester, Heather Heyer, was killed, allegedly by a white supremacist.

That protest, the president insisted, had “very fine people on both sides.”

    He is either skirting dangerously close to First Amendment violation with that statement, or wallowing in it altogether.Where are the “free speech” purists now? I hear nothing but chirping crickets from that area.

      Think the Yellow haired, orange doofus may have just picked a very stupid fight.

      First he is in violation of Federal Law, in that a sitting elected official cannot attack the career or profession of a private individual.

      Second, he picked a fight with a group with a bigger microphone than he has. An you imagine what happens if the players go after him en masse?

      More stupid Chumphshit trying to draw attention away from the fact hic cohorts are being indicted.
