    This is not going over well for Trump.

    Of all the embarrassing crap about Trump being president, the fact that he engages in Twitter feuds like a petulant 14 year old may be the worst.

    Jesus Christ, at least pretend to be above nonsense like this.

    "We respect their decision to decline this invitation", or say nothing at all.

    After a couple of years he'd just want to leave and go be President somewhere else.

    Trump is by far one the best presidents in my lifetime. Trump is not afraid to say what's on his mind and what's also on the majority of America's mind. Trump haters are morons.

    And there is no rule for business owners having to be forced to sign a player or having to keep a player that is a distraction to his business.

    Where was all this conservative backlash when Floyd Mayweather talked about politics?

    Most people fully agree with Trump on this topic. These multi-millionaire spoiled idiots shouldn't disrespect the flag and the country. It's tacky AF. The NFL is seeing their ratings slip, and this is playing a part in it. If you're hell bent on protesting, do it someplace other than during the national anthem. Not that hard.

    There are hundreds of people at any given sports event disrespecting the anthem and flag by talking, drinking, eating, walking the concourses and keeping hats on every single time the anthem is played at a sporting event.

    I have never seen anyone at a bar, restaurant or residence stand respectfully at attention during the anthem while watching a game on TV.

    Why is their disrespect any different?

    Oh please. The NFL players are the show with all eyes on them. Not the guy getting a hotdog. What a dumb response from you.

    This thread is a bunch of virtue-signalling idiots blabbering. Yes, we know it's a first amendment protected right, blah blah blah. It's still tacky AF and people are voting with their feet (lots of empty seats) and they eyeballs (viewers way down). Again, protesting is fine, but not during the national anthem.

    Exactly. Dobro isn't smart enough to reason with people - it's far easier for him to just lazily call people racist. I think he's in high school or otherwise really young.

    And? What's your point? Kaepernick remains unsigned...whether it be due to his abilities or his stances. The twit you posted had 2 situations that are in no way similar.

    I'm sure millions of GED holding Americans are also not afraid to speak their mind. Hell, everyone has that drunk uncle who isn't afraid to speak their mind every family event.

    Doesn't make them good presidential material though.

    So the guy suggesting that someone should be fired over symbolic gestures isn't the one virtue signaling.

    Really man if you are a troll all these years I commend your commitment.

    No he is not, and if you can't see that, then you are an idiot. Being unafraid to say whats on your mind doesn't make you smart. It makes you an idiot that doesn't know how to keep you mouth shut. The ****ing guy makes up countries that don't exist, can't stay off twitter, condones racists, and generally acts like a middle schooler. He has done absolutely nothing since taking office. Nothing at all. All he has done is shoot his mouth off. No policies, no legislation, and he is under investigation. Your avatar says "Trump Pence 2020" I got news for you, he won't be on the ticket. He will either be impeached, or will decide not to run again. I mean he thinks the WH is a dump anyway. What's truly sad is that too many morons like yourself vote, and that is the unfortunate thing.
