As Trump Screeches About The NFL, This Tweet He Thinks We All Forgot REALLY Didn’t Age Well

Trump has spent all weekend screaming about NFL players that take a knee during the national anthem. At a political rally in Alabama on Friday, he called for teams to fire anyone who did that. He did it again multiple times on Twitter, with his fans conveniently ignoring the fact that he can’t just say whatever he wants because of the job he has (can anyone imagine if this were Obama or Hillary?).

This evening, he appears to have decided that not enough people are listening to him, so he said that fans shouldn’t condone their behavior:

The sad thing is that he’s still saying whatever he thinks people want to hear, and we’re sure he thinks we’ve all forgotten what his position on peaceful protest and disagreement was back in January:

So, what? Are we to assume that he recognizes the rights of people to peacefully express their views, but only when and where he approves of it? How typical of the jingoism that’s engulfed the right. Protests are all well and good, but only when it doesn’t upset their neat little apple carts. Peaceful has nothing to do with it.

Of course, Trump allegedly told the press pool that he didn’t watch any of the games today because he was “doing other things.” Like tweeting about the NFL – that must take some serious energy. It seems he didn’t mean that, either:

Does he mean anything he says? Probably only when it involves the wall, undocumented immigrants and tax cuts for his rich friends.
