Trump Takes Big Swipe at NFL During Speech Honoring Race Champion

This is going to make some folks very, very angry.

President Trump seemingly put the National Football League in his sights during a recent White House event honoring NASCAR driver Martin Truex Jr.’s 2017 championship season.

While the president never came out directly and delivered a targeted zinger at the NFL or professional football players in general, he still put them on blast in a round about way for not standing for the National Anthem as a form of protest against police brutality.

Here’s what Trump had to say:

“At every NASCAR race, you will see thousands of patriotic Americans from the grandstands to the pit stalls proudly waving our flag and roaring with joy at the words, ‘Start your engines,’” Trump said.

Trump added that Truex and NASCAR CEO Brian France should be proud of something else, Fox News Insider said.

“And I will tell you, one thing I know about NASCAR, they do indeed, Brian, stand for the playing of the national anthem, right?” Trump remarked. “They do indeed.”

Trump noted that later on someone told him that perhaps he ought not say anything about the anthem controversy as it could make someone mad.

As you might expect, Trump wasn’t a bit concerned with whether or not such a statement would be found offensive.

“Somebody said, ‘Maybe you shouldn’t say that. That’ll be controversial,’” Trump noted. “I said, ‘That’s okay. NASCAR’s not going to mind it at all.’ Right, fellas?”

The bottom line in regards to the whole “taking a knee” during the National Anthem is pretty simple. Don’t do it.

It’s fine if these players want to use their massive platforms to champion a certain cause, but they need to do so on their own time. When these individuals step out on the field, they represent their team to the world, and when they come out in favor of something on the field, it makes it seem as if the whole team is supportive of that same issue.

It’s disrespectful to the men and women who gave up so much to protect our liberty and way of life. It’s a proverbial slap in the face.

Let’s hope this next NFL season sees much less controversy than the last several have.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
