POTUS Calls on NFL Owners to Fire Players Who Protest During the National Anthem

During a rally in Alabama, Donald Trump asserted that NFL owners should fire players who protest during the national anthem, stating “[w]ouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out! He’s fired! He’s fired.'” Several players were not pleased with the President’s comments, and hinted at the likelihood of even more protests. Huffingtonpost.com, SI.com.
