Trump vs. the NFL: A Stark Illustration of Our Fractured Country

New Poll: NFL More Unfavorable Than Ever, Nosedives by 13 Percent in One Week

Like a political magician with an endless bag of predictable-yet-entertaining tricks, Trump turned Democrats into the urban elite, anti-working man party in 2016.

Eric Trump told Fox News Channel's Sean Hannity that locking arms during the national anthem doesn't show disrespect for the flag, but that kneeling was a step too far.

And speaking to The Telegraph, Mercedes boss Toto Wolff said it would be futile to try and control the three-time world champion when it came to his lifestyle - and has admitted he understands his feelings on human rights.

We'll have the inactives for the 9:30 game between the Saints and Dolphins at around 8 a.m. EDT. Mohammad Samra, a journalism major at Roosevelt, said he was disappointed in the NFL for not specifying the reasoning behind these protests. His silent protest went unnoticed until August 26.

"One of the reasons we put on the uniform is to exercise the democratic right to practice what you wish", he said. Police officers refused to escort Kaepernick in and out of the stadiums, and he was slandered across the internet. But, for a moment, before this week's NFL games get going, it's worth talking about what the issue is that's being protested.

While Trump was picking fights with NFL and crashing and burning on Obamacare repeal, he wasn't even being briefed about the crisis in Puerto Rico. "I don't even want to think about it. I'm done".

Washington will try its luck again in prime time: Five story lines for Monday's Redskins-Chiefs game. That's something that's not happening. How do family members who have lost a loved one feel when they see these protests? In the case of the NFL protests, Trump absorbed and channeled the feelings of most Americans, a vast majority of likely voters, and nearly all of his supporters.

"Very important that NFL players STAND tomorrow, and always, for the playing of our National Anthem".

In Foxboro, Massachusetts, more than a dozen players and coaches of the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots knelt or linked arms, including quarterback Tom Brady, who had supported the campaign of Donald Trump.

Inside the CNN poll, Trump got what he wanted: More Republicans (87%) and Independents (48%) sided with him than not.

Paying it forward: A Redskins player offered a college kid free tickets - in exchange for charity work. But as of this writing, Kaepernick is still unemployed! The facts are there and have been there for a long time.

People in this country are losing their damn minds about taking a knee, in protest, during the National Anthem. The political implications are inestimable at this juncture, but certainly do not portend favorably for the left. "There's better ways than disrespecting the flag". Y'all know what that was, that was just a response to [President Donald] Trump. President Trump called the peaceful protest disrespectful. Similarly, argued The Root writer Michael Harriot, King, John Lewis and other Bloody Sunday marchers didn't risk their lives out of disdain for the Edmund Pettus Bridge - they did it to secure the right to vote. "NFL should change policy!" On the other hand, who wants to be viewed as hostile to the nation that embedded the principles of freedom and equality in its foundation? If the two are going to be synonymous, then each criticism that is levied against the country as a whole will also find a home in the league that acts as its athletic representative.
