Trump Continues Attack On NFL For Disrepecting 'Our Country, Our Flag, Our National Anthem'
During a joint presser with Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, the president doubled down on his criticisms of the NFL and its players for protesting social injustice by law enforcement.
Trump has been playing to his base by swapping what NFL players are protesting and what he wants them to be protesting.
Fox News' Shep Smith described it perfectly.
Steve Holland Of Reuters asked Trump if he was too preoccupied with the NFL to properly deal with the devastation in Puerto Rico.
Trump replied, "I wasn't preoccupied with the NFL, I was ashamed of what was taking place."
He continued, "To me that was a very important moment. I don't think you can disrespect our country, our flag, our national anthem. To me the NFL situation is a very important situation. I've heard that before about, was I preoccupied? Not at all."
In America, you can disrespect our country, our flag, and our National Anthem if you so choose. That's what living in a free country means.
The more Trump talks, the more confused he gets.
Trump said, "Not at all. I have plenty of time on my hands."
Huh? We know you play an insane amount of golf on the tax payers dime, but still.
"All I do is work. To be honest with you, that's an important function of working. It is called respect for our country."
