President Trump has played a game of dare with the NFL and wins. Despite the NFL attempting to make a powerful statement about law enforcements abuse of minorities in America, the NFL plays into the hands of the president in a game of who is more patriotic. In the end, the NFL had little choice but to cede the controversy to Trump.
- Everyone should respect the flag.
- No NFL players are going to be fired for the flag disrespecting.
- Trump disagrees with the protesting.
“On CNN and MSNBC for days after Trump’s initial riff it was rare to hear a commentator say a discouraging word about the protests, let alone warn that the NFL was stumbling into Trump’s political kill box.”
