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.

‘National Teacher Of The Year’ Makes Call For Violence Against McConnell

Published

A man who was named the “National Teacher of the Year” back in 2019 by the Council of Chief State School Officers recently tweeted that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s neighbors should rip a page out of the playbook the neighbor who assaulted Sen. Rand Paul and violently attack McConnell. According to Rodney Robinson this would make such an individual a “true Kentucky hero.” The neighbor who assaulted Sen. Paul left him with six broken ribs which made it necessary for doctors to remove a part of his lung. Robinson tweeted, “Who are Mitch McConnell’s neighbors? I’m just saying Rand Paul’s neighbor did what a true Kentucky hero should do. It’s your turn to step up.” https://twitter.com/KyleKashuv/status/1344435826688745474 via Daily Wire: Paul’s wife Kelly Ashby Paul issued a fiery response, tweeting, “I am so disgusted by this I have no words. The 2019 ‘National teacher of the Year’ is celebrating the violent assault on my husband that resulted in 6 broken ribs and part of his lung being removed. This hateful thug is calling for more violence on Sen McConnell.” Robinson eventually deleted the tweet and posted a response to the backlash, which he blamed on “conservative bots“: “I made a Mitch McConnell joke today and the conservative bots are real angry. It’s funny because the joke was made early today and no one said a thing until I promoted black medical awareness.” When he was awarded Teacher of the Year in 2019, the Council of Chief State School Officers said of Robinson, “He creates a positive school culture by empowering his students – many of whom have experienced trauma – to become civically minded social advocates who use their skills and voices to affect physical and policy changes at their school and in their communities,” CNN noted.
