NFL Owners are Reportedly ‘Terrified of Trump,’ Here’s the Reason Why

The president has a lot of pull it seems.

One of the issues President Trump seems to be very passionate about is NFL players not respecting their country, their flag, and the men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice for freedom by not standing for the National Anthem before games.

Trump has come out on multiple occasions to slam these individuals — who are part of a movement started by failed quarterback Colin Kaepernick — for their lack of love of country, and it seems the pressure he’s put on these folks and the team owners is having quite an effect.

A new report is stating that team owners are super scared of the commander-in-chief.

Here are a few tweets that capture the president’s thoughts on this form of “protest.”

If a player wants the privilege of making millions of dollars in the NFL,or other leagues, he or she should not be allowed to disrespect….

…our Great American Flag (or Country) and should stand for the National Anthem. If not, YOU’RE FIRED. Find something else to do!

Earlier this week the NFL banned players from kneeling during the anthem with owners voting unanimously on the measure, though one person did abstain.

Here’s why so many were on board with the idea.

“The answer remains clear, according to a variety of league sources: an intense fear of President Donald Trump,” writes Bleacher Report.

This is a fact. This is the truth. This is the core basis for the NFL’s decision. This has been told to me before, and it was reiterated by several people Wednesday.

“Our league,” one team official said, “is f–king terrified of Trump. We’re scared of him.”

What does the NFL fear? It fears boycotts of games. It fears people not watching its product on television. It fears people not buying its products.

Ratings for the NFL sunk down deep in the dumps last year and along with that went revenue from advertisers, which goes to show the power of people banding together to stand on principle.

While players are banned from kneeling, teams are still allowed to keep players in the locker room until after the anthem if they choose. This move also didn’t sit well with Trump who spoke against it too.

Trump stated later that the ban was a smart move and that this measure came about as the result of the people in this country, not because of him, saying “This country is very smart. We have very smart people.”

Indeed we do, Mr. President. Indeed we do.

White House Tries Defending Biden’s Hidin’, Fails Miserably

Is this the death of the freedom of the press?

Published

on

There is no doubt about it:  The White House isn’t too keen on Joe Biden taking questions from the press, and they barely seem to mind that anyone knows this.

Biden himself has intimated as much, often telling reporters that he’d be “in trouble” if he were to remain at the podium after a speaking engagement to take their questions.  This begs the question:  Who exactly does the leader of the free world report to on these matters, and is that any sort of situation for a US President to be in.

One White House press corps member attempted to get to the bottom of the issue this week, but was met with a paltry excuse from the administration.

White House reporter Brian Karem, who became known during the Trump administration for his aggressive style when asking questions, asked to have the same opportunity with Biden.

“I’m sure there have been dozens who would humbly request that the president of the United States not only do a town hall, but show up, either in this room or in the East Room, to appear before the full press for a robust round of questions that will no doubt benefit the American public,” Karem told White House deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.

Biden is appearing at a “town hall” event on CNN Thursday evening.

Their response was less than optimal.

Jean-Pierre interjected and claimed Biden “takes questions all the time,” adding that it is a “large press corps.”

And so, it appears, our President will continue to shirk his duty to speak openly, further damaging the noble purpose of the freedom of the press.
