Donald Trump calls out Colin Kaepernick, again

Getty Images

As free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick continues to wait for the phone to ring, his ears may have been burning.

Speaking at a rally in Louisville on Monday night, President Donald Trump took a shot at Kaepernick, who became a polarizing figure last year for not standing for the National Anthem.

“And you know, your San Francisco quarterback,” Trump said, via TMZ. “I’m sure nobody ever heard of him. I’m just reporting the news. There was an article today — I love to report the news and then they said I made a mistake, right? I said, ‘No, the people reporting the news made a mistake if it’s wrong.’ But there was an article today, it was reported that NFL owners don’t want to pick him up because they don’t want to get a nasty tweet from Donald Trump. Do you believe that? I just saw that. I just saw that. I said if I remember that one I’m gonna report it to the people of the Kentucky. Because they like it when people actually stand for the American flag.”

The report President Trump refers to emerged Friday, via Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report. Quoting an unnamed AFC General Manager, Freeman explained Kaepernick’s ongoing unemployment by pointing out that “some teams . . . think there might be protests or [President Donald] Trump will tweet about the team.”

These concerns overlook the fact that Kaepernick will no longer sit or kneel for the National Anthem. But that doesn’t matter; Kaepernick already is notorious among folks like those who attended Monday night’s rally and elsewhere as grossly unpatriotic.

And while President Trump seemed to be laughing off the report that he’d direct a “nasty tweet” to the owner of the team that signs Kaepernick, President Trump said nothing to suggest that he wouldn’t. If anything, the derisive reference to Kaepernick not standing for the Anthem proves that, if/when someone signs him, President Trump will have something to say about it.

  1. What a complete, petty loser of a lunatic. Most embarrassing President in history, each day making this country more of a joke in the eyes of the world and history.

  2. If the browns sign what’s his face, that rat haslam will get a tweet from me too. I want to win football games but not with trash. We can do better than some little communist that stinks at football.

  3. He should also call out those callous idiots flying the rebel flag during the NCAA tournament. Which act is more egregious?

  4. Sooner we get rid of this tool: The better off our country will be. He is probably the worst world leader since Nero. This is what happens when you have republicans gerrymandering, and the uneducated middle of the country can’t remember how awful the republicans were under bush voting for a conman reality tv Star. This won’t end well.

  5. I understand Conservatism.

    I understand why one chooses to support the GOP.

    I DO NOT Understand the blind loyalty to this crazy lying old man still presented by 40% of this country.

  6. Undoubtedly the liberals/progressives/leftists will whine incessantly about how Kaepernick is being “persecuted” for his beliefs and/or that his failure to sign with an NFL team is the result of “raysizzum”.

  7. Politics and football dont mix.

    Krapernick isnt on a team because he isnt good, simple as that.

  8. I have never seen a president of a free country bash his people so much. Not everyone will like you but being the leader of a country you are teaching our children to be like you??? Shameful!! If you dont have anything nice to say…dont say anything at all. I am not a Kap fan but this just embarrassing!

  9. I think NFL owners are more concerned that he might go after their anti-trust exemption if they piss him off. Especially when you consider how the NFL treated the USFL (in which Trump owned a team) or the comments that were made when he tried to buy the Bills.

  10. Who cares? Kap isn’t a very good qb and wants a bunch of money. That is why he hasn’t been signed. Nobody really cares that much about the kneeling, the kid’s heart was in the right place, he went about it wrong, lesson learned, let’s move forward

  11. So. He’s saying he gets his news from watching TV. And if they just something wrong and he regurgitates it, that’s on them…not him. Sure. Okay. That makes sense.

    He’s just the president of the United States of America, after all. Don’t expect him to be accountable or anything.

  12. It sincerely disturbs me that even as the POTUS he has nothing better to do than keep up with NFL free agency.

    I’ve accepted the fact that he’s our president, I wish Trump would realize it too and do his job.

  13. It’s kind of strange having a Prez who likes his country, isn’t it? Honestly I never thought I’d see it again…thought it would be a never-ending litany of Obama types working day and night to destroy it until we were all living in a Third World dystopia.

  14. Donald Trump – the guy who avoided military service in every possible way – calls Kap (who, I believe, is an unpatriotic jerk) unpatriotic. How many lies and ridiculous accusations do we, a free and decent people, have to put up with?

  15. Maybe when he realizes it’s a privilege to play this game, a privilege afforded by those who died in defense of the flag and the freedom that allows him to disrespect it he’ll get another chance, but I fear that may be beyond him.

  16. Good for Trump.
    These mental midgets that play football, should play football
    Certainly not act as though they can think.
    The same can be said about those Hollywood turds.
    Millions of us are sick and tired of their running their mouths.
    Play ball and shut up

  17. How can people defend this “president” after reading or listening to a couple sentences that spew from his insecure, lying, blaspheming, mouth? I don’t care about being a Democrat or a Republican, I have no identity at stake within it. If I had actually voted for Trump in some alternative-fact universe, I would be the first person to stand up and say “I made a mistake!” Seriously, what denominator inside the human psyche does this child appeal to?

    On the unprecedented, historic day of the FBI admitting that it is indeed investigating Trump’s campaign for collusion with the Russians, on the day where the FBI basically calls Trump out for his ranting scared little tweets that allege criminal activity by a former president, on this day, Trump decides to talk about an unemployed quarterback, without addressing the other issues. What???????

    Trump, get out of our football news.

  18. The draft dodger president calling out a pro football player? I’d like to see that if the two were alone in an alley.

  19. The thing about bullies is they’re cowards. I guess after Comey testified trump’s claims about being wiretapped were false and trump has been under investigation by the DOJ dating back to July. A sitting President under investigation for colluding with a hostile foreign power. Let that sink in.

  20. It should concerned all Americans that our president is rubbing it in the face to what is now an irrelevant NFL player, regardless of any body’s opinion of Kaepernick. Shows what a lowly, pathetic, and petty man he is…

  21. In addition to showing himself as an uninformed hypocritical dilettante Kaepernick also showed himself to be a marginal starting QB. That he has become a character of derision probably doesn’t concern NFL GMs so much as he may also potentially be a very divisive one both in and out of the locker room for any team that picks him up. That’s a lot of potential risk to take on without the promise of an almost certain return. It’s sad that this result should come as a surprise to anyone except Kaepernick. That it seems to surprise him is not just apt, it is downright hilarious.

  22. Florio, you clearly learned nothing from the comments section in the Kaep Browns article you wrote. It ain’t just Trump and his rally attendees that don’t like this guy.

    Hope he enjoys his pig socks that cost him $16M per year.

  23. Kaep deserves to be vilified. It isn’t his message but the way he conveyed it that was the problem. Too smart, too late.

    Enjoy the CFL, you pathetic SJW.

  24. quit trying to make a martyr out of crappernick. he asked for it and he got it. the flag part was only a piece of it. ask the cops what they think of it .he pulled that stunt to keep from getting cut. nothing more. follow the money.

  25. Support the president but he is the president of every single America and is responsible to keep all 320 million safe, even if they might be knuckleheads….. the last president divided America, this one needs to bring us back

  26. There is no doubt that Colin Kaepernick would be a more insightful president than the clown we have now. He still doesnt get that when he quotes a false news story, he has taken some responsibility for its accuracy. It is neither rude nor libelous to say he is definitely not smarter than a fifth grader.

  27. Kapernick went 0-10 in the red zone in the super bowl. Kneel / don’t kneel- This speaks for itself.

  28. Good God…this guy thinks FOOTBALL is about him now?
    (or is this just to distract from today’s bad news about the wacky “tapp” tweets?)

  29. Kaepernick isn’t going to get signed because he sucks coupled with the negative media distraction that he would bring. If he were even an average QB some team would overlook the latter.

  30. people love it when you “stand for the American flag”

    ….as opposed to when you hide behind it, Donald.

    Sessions
    Flynn
    Manafort
    Paige
    Stone
    Tillerson
    Caputo
    Ross
    Trump
    Putin

    “the most corrupt regime ever”

  31. Maybe Colin can join his fellow liberals by burning cars and making threats to Trump supporters. You know, “tolerance” and all that.

  32. I still can’t believe Trump is our President. The most important job in the world is being held by a guy who thinks he’s on a reality T.V. show. I wish he would just shut his mouth and carry himself with some professionalism and class for one day. 4 years can’t go quick enough for me.

  33. Doesn’t the guy have more important things to do? Like pass a health care bill that doesn’t screw the little guy?

    ____________

    So, you don’t think that the POTUS should be held to a higher standard of dialog and conduct than a washed up QB? Or at the very least, should hold himself to a higher standard?

  35. Good God…this guy thinks FOOTBALL is about him now?
    (or is this just to distract from today’s bad news about the wacky “tapp” tweets?)

    —————————–

    Everything with him is a distraction. Notice how the news talked about the wiretaps for the last 2 weeks and not Sessions perjury in front of congress. With Trump everyone is to busy reporting on the distracting lies to report on the repulsive truths.

    The republicans in congress spent all time questioning Comey on Obama and Clinton and making sure everyone knew the voting machines weren’t hacked. No one thought the voting machines had been hacked in the first place but it gave them a life line for a bad day of news.

    They had ZERO appetite for finding out the truth, only to misdirect.

  36. Those who praised Keap for his freedom of speech. Will shame Trump for doing the same thing. Love this liberal hypocrisy.

    ———

    Pretty sure no one here is saying Dorian Trumples doesn’t have the RIGHT to say what he wants, they are saying he is a craven, vain lunatic for WHAT he saying (and doing). I know you might know the difference is but it’s YUGE.

    Same thing went with Kaep, he had every right to do it but that doesn’t people liked it.

  37. Nice strategy. Parrot any story you choose (true or not) from the bully pulpit of the POTUS (giving it legitimacy) and if it turns out to be false you say, “I’m just reporting the news.”

    It’s the buried lead on this story. This is what he does folks…get woke.

  38. Trump has much bigger fish to fry…and business of his own. Kaepernick’s the least of his worries.
    He should worry about Putin, for sure. And his false wiretapping claims that the FBI has said they have no evidence of. Yep, and his rating’s the worst in 72 years. His plate’s overflowing…take care of it and don’t worry about Kap.

  39. Meanwhile Colin Kaepernick is rebuilding the flux capacitor on the Dolorean to take him back to 2013. When his life was good and more importantly before he ailienated himself from America. Also apparently rest of NFL , but that is largely because he can’t play QB.

  40. You liberals are hilarious hypocrites – so much for freedom of speech and tolerance … when it doesn’t align with your worldview. Lol.

  41. Trump is proving himself to be an adept politician. Kaep is a polarizing figure and one that many love to hate. He’s a great target for Trump’s audience.

  42. I get you wanted change and would have voted in any outsider with a pulse. But if you’re still supporting this idiot, you’re an ignoramus of the highest order. Sad commentary on this once great nation. Whatever, I’m loaded and have great insurance so his bs won’t affect me.

  43. The guy who draft dodges and gets his cheesy tacky crummy hats made in china. I’d rather he sit for the anthem like kap and make his hats here to keep a job here.

  44. Those who praised Keap for his freedom of speech. Will shame Trump for doing the same thing. Love this liberal hypocrisy.
    ———–
    I’m not shaming Trump for speaking out, I’m shaming him because he should have something else better to do.

  45. At first I really was unhappy with C. Kap and his protest method. But truth be told, he has put his money where his mouth is. He has backed up his cause to make a positive change and in this great country, despite who we elected president and his issues, everyone deserves a second chance to redeem themselves as long as they haven’t hurt others by violence. Believe it or not, Kap is actually a decent qb. The numbers and tape back it up. I’d be fine with the my Vikings giving him a chance to backup Bradford

  46. If Donald Trump could find a way to remove Roger Goodell from office, that would be a super positive useful thing he could do for all of mankind.

  47. Somebody please just get this man the mental help he needs. It really isn’t proper for us to mock the mentally handicapped but when he crams his insanity down our throat we have no choice but to respond.

  48. Can you please quit going to rallies, tweeting, and spouting lies and nonsense? You won the election…do something to actually help the people in our country

  49. Trump is a small petty man obsessed with small petty ideas and trivialities. He isn’t fit to lead a Boy Scout troop, much less a nation. God help us survive the next 4 years.

  50. the most powerful man on earth is getting into arguments with actors, tv show hosts, and unsigned athletes. boy oh boy……..
    i wish i had that much time on my hands to get into arguments with irrelevant people to my job.

  51. What moronic jerk Kaep has been using his phony protest to trap his GM into not cutting him. All the while not voting and holding up Castro as his symbol against oppression and ripping the cops that are keeping him from getting himself hurt with this stuff and disrespecting the veterans standing right there in front of him holding that flag. I mean, nobody could ever act like a bigger jackass right?

    Then Donald says “hold my beer”.

  52. Why is he still holding rallies when the election is over? Shouldn’t he have better things to do before heading out to golf on yet another weekend? And, how much did it cost the tax payers to fly him to Kentucky for that rally and all of the security? If he would quit wasting money on himself, there might be a little left for all the programs he wants to defund.

  53. I sure don’t want Kaperneck on my team, especially if I’m the owner of the team. This guy is a pure cancer. He needs to go to Canada where all the other American cowards fled to during the Vietnam War.

  54. Sports venues are one of the last places where there is even a reference to sovereignty of this Nation, and with all the “Left Leaning” comments here, it becomes very apparent how effective the Social Engineering of the next generation in this country has been.

    If life is fair, in a couple of short years, this site will be writing a story on how Crapperneck ran through his bank account, and gets arrested for trafficking in order to keep up his once comfortable lifestyle.

  55. Kap truly hurt his chances landing on another team by not standing. It divided the 9ers team and went through every NFL locker room. There is NO way any coach or GM is going to bring another return of the divide Kao caused.
    Kap should call Ray Rice and ask what it’s like to be black balled from the league.
    There’s no reason Kap couldn’t be a backup. No way with the divide he could cause.

  56. Those who praised Keap for his freedom of speech. Will shame Trump for doing the same thing. Love this liberal hypocrisy.
    —————————————————————
    Bro, freedom of speech means having the right to protest and to speak your mind without fear of maltreatment from a nutcase authoritarian. Trump IS authoritarian (and a freaking nutcase). Which part of the equation is so difficult to grasp?

  57. Where was all this judgement and second guessing the last 8 years from the left? Yeah screw POTUS Trump for putting our nation first and trying to fix the country. Sorry he isnt painting the white house with rainbows and apologizing to anyone that will listen. At least he pays his share of taxes (unlike barry, bernie, and the Clinton crime family). The middle class works and dies to pay for those that refuse to do it for themselves. Fight for 15 and have a robot replace your unskilled, unmotivated self.

  58. With health care and other issues that need to be addressed, you’d think this imbecile would be so busy taking care of the problems we all face. Instead he spends his time on twitter lashing out on non issues as this. I’m a military vet and have two sons who are both serving. And could care less if a below average qb or anyone else stands for the flag or not. However when it was discovered kap didn’t show up at the voting booth last November in one of the most elections i can remember. And I voted for Jimmy Carter back in’80 so i’ve been at it awhile he lost all crediblity. Don’t vote don ‘t complain.

  59. Come on, Trump, don’t make me root for Kaepernick.

    Seriously, I am probably more liberal than most readers here, and I have been following the various items about Kaepernick, and the implications that he’s generating zero interest due to his National Anthem protests. I disagree. The guy is a punk. Before he ever chose to ride the pine during the anthem, I shuddered at the rumors that my team (Broncos) were interested in him. Bad attitude, entitled, no leadership skills, no heart.

  60. I love watching liberal heads implode on a daily basis. They have absolutely no idea what to do. Freakin awesome.

  61. It amazes me how Trump is able to distract media with these things, all the while pushing his agenda through without much media attention. If the attention to policy becomes too intense, just make a statement or accusation to put the attention back on him. I really think its brilliant stuff.

  62. Although it isn’t very becoming of our president, at the least he reflects what a majority of citizens who work, think, and vote feel about these race baiters like Kapernick, and the BLM crap, looting and burning, and liberal turds in Hollywood and music..there are actually good people who don’t like SSM, abortion, illegal immigrants and Muslim extremists in our country…people who believe we are a Christian natio

  63. Politics as usual. Just the same old schitt. Move along now, folks, there’s really nothing to see here.

  64. Soooo the media is wrong for saying something without confirming it, but the president can regurgitate what he heard on the news without confirming it and its ok? The media is a non elected group of people just trying to make a living and the stations are just trying to get ratings. The president is an elected official who took an oath to this country. How on gods green earth we hold the media to a higher standard than our own president is beyond me. A huge news article was about how trump said happy bday to the oldest survivor of the pearl harbor attacks. Yes, the greatest thing our president did this month was say happy bday to someone………thats how low the bar is set. And if i had to choose which is more anti american, kneeling for the Anthem, or openly defending and aiding Russia in their hacks- ya know- one of AMERICA’S BIGGEST ENEMIES…….id say donald is much worse than Kaep.

  65. I’m sure in the not too distant future we’ll all be talking about how much Chump has done for the American flag. When everyone realizes how much he trampled on it and the people of this country . Until then, enjoy the puppet show .

    And realistically, CK’s problems are his own.

  66. Trump’s foot-in-mouth disease isn’t nearly as entertaining as Biden’s.

    I TOLD Y’ALL to vote for Johnson with me, but you wouldn’t listen. Now we have this………

  67. Let’s see. Trump’s under investigation by the FBI for treason but he’s going to question Kapernick’s patriotism. That’s rich.

  68. Trump doesn’t need to tweet it. This is pretty simple kap was not good on the field and his kneeling costed owners money. That’s why he doesn’t and won’t have a job.

  69. I’m glad to see the president picking up on this. My own beliefs are if you’re not happy here. And you have all that money. Why not just leave. He’s never lived a bad life. He’s always been a privileged kid. I hate that these rich people try to influence others with their views. Just like all those celebrities that were moving if Trump won. Are anyone of them gone.. No. Give your millions to the cause man or shut up.

  70. Don’t you think the ‘leader’ of the free world would have better things to do? What a joke!

  71. Donald showed us his great patriotism, by dodging the draft!!
    Neither him, not his sons have worn the uniform of this great country.
    As a military man, I find Donald a hypocrite for challenging the patriotism of another!!

    _______________________________

    And those that praise Trump for his freedom of speech shamed Kaep for doing the same thing. Love the alt-right hypocrisy.

    See how that works?

  73. “Maybe when he realizes it’s a privilege to play this game, a privilege afforded by those who died in defense of the flag and the freedom that allows him to disrespect it he’ll get another chance, but I fear that may be beyond him.”

    I agree, Trump needs to get himself together.

  74. Trump has far worse things to worry about besides a QB who refused to stand for the National Anthem. Like colluding with Russia, slandering Obama…being under criminal investigation, etc…

  75. Nice to know all the problems he has been protesting have been solved just as he become a free agent. He now pledged to stand for the anthem. What if things get worse? Does he then sit or kneel again? Does he ignore it and he was a fake all along? A lot of questions happen when you choose not to stand for the national anthem. You made your bed… good luck sleeping in it.

  76. Yeah, I’d be worried about being called out by the Traitor in Chief. Sad what’s going on in this country past politics when you have someone with Russia as their conduit as our President. President Reagan is rolling over in his grave.

  77. “Doesn’t the President of the United States have bigger fish to fry?”

    The Kaepernick comment was about 10 seconds of Trump’s speech. He also discussed the many substantive things accomplished (such as eliminating oppressive regulations) in the 50+ days of his administration. Try to be better informed.

    —————–

    There is no more evidence of treason than there is of wiretapping. Both are things where despite lots of finger pointing and accusations any evidence of either has never been found despite a lot of searching. (The “I just know in my bones its true and someday the truth will come out” argument both sides are using does not count as evidence) In both cases all parties need to shut up unless they have any proof they can put up.

    I wonder if he could go back in time, Colin would do things differently.

    ———————-

    His deficiencies at the qb position were going to catch up no matter what. Regardless of the path taken this guy was going to be out of a job at the end of it.

  80. Vince McMahon in 2020! Let’s see how far down the hole we can take this thing!

  81. more gasligthing. blaming everyone else for everything. when you repeat something someone else says as if it were true, you at a minimum take partial ownership.

    these rallies are hilarious.

  82. Cutler is going to find a job before Kapernick will, because he’s at least shown at times he can be an average starting QB. If Kap was still playing at the level he was in ’12-’13, he’d have little trouble finding work. As it stands now, he’s not very good anymore, and there are plenty of marginal veteran QBs out there that don’t have his off the field baggage.

  83. I wonder if this brings comfort to those of you that voted this moron in. This is the person representing our great nation. He is unworthy, unfit.

  84. Love it Trump !! Calling out these oh so important athletes who think we give a crap how they feel so misunderstood and need to do something so disrespectable to our country and our veterans who sacrificed their lives.

  85. WHY??? would THE President of the United States even waste his breathe on Kaepernick…Colin Kaepernick is an absolute moron….He should be run out of the entity calling itself
    The NATIONAL Football League…..

    ——————————————————

    Coming from a lifelong conservative and GOP member… Donald doesn’t have any real “conservative” supporters. They may call themselves that, but they are not.

    And there’s no bigger government position than standing in front of the country and personally attacking a private citizen. Makes me sick, honestly.

  87. Trump is right!! 95% of the comments on here are anti-Kaepernick. Trump weighs in on the correct side and everyone goes nuts! He said the same thing you idiots have been saying for months and you disagree with him? Obviously if Trump said the earth were round, you nuts would become flat earther’s and join the Kyrie Irvin fan club. The media and comedy central find it so easy to indoctrinate the weak minded.

  88. Good for Trump, not only didnt Colin stand up for the Anthem, he also wore a Fidel Castro T shirt and socks with cops looking like pigs. Hope he never plays again in the NFL

  89. The tweeter in chief is so absent of substance all he can do is have his celebrity pep rallies.

    Even Flavor Flav must be impressed with trump’s hype man skills. But he is nothing more than that.

  90. Worst president ever, and it is only a matter of time before he opens his mouth and insults the wrong world leader, leading to World War III.

    The sad thing is, because so many Americans were spiteful enough to buy into his hatred and immaturity, I half feel like we deserve what comes later.

    And make no mistake…it is coming.

    I think in his mind, these self-aggrandizing rallies ARE of most importance.

  92. “Kaepernick already is notorious among folks like those who attended Monday night’s rally and elsewhere as grossly unpatriotic.”

    Okay lib kids now that you have read that again, this time does it help you understand this was the President as public speaker warming his crowd? It’s what politicians and other public speakers do and that is definitely part of his job just as it was part of Obama’s. If you want to get into how he is doing that job that is another discussion altogether.

    ——-

    you don’t have to be a liberal to dislike what is going on. don’t assume that every conservative voter agrees with Trump.

  94. I guess he must want to be right about something, anything… He has lost at just about everything he’s tried, so you can’t blame a guy looking for an easy win.

    No reason why the sports world shouldn’t be included in this wave of stupidity.

    It would be best for everybody if he just shut his mouth.

  95. Shouldn’t Trump be groveling on his knees apologizing to the Obama, our allies, and the American people for flat out lying about the non-existent wire tapping of his tower? Every single intelligence agency has proven him to be a liar. Even top Republicans and Fox News have distanced themselves from this lie.

    Now Trump is trying to distract people by going after Kaepernick, hoping that Conservatives and so-called patriots will get enraged and forget about his wire-tapping lies.

  96. Four years from now, Kaep will still be a millionaire and DJT will be in jail.

    A guy with five draft deferments who colluded with Russians to ruin America and Americans’ faith in government and our free press is in no position to criticize the patriotism of ANYONE.

    I’m not dissappointed in Kaep, I’m dissappointed that more white players did not take a stand against police shooting unarmed black men.

  97. Very Presidential there Donald, why dont you go get a tic tac, and go grab em right there like only you would.

  98. you don’t have to be a liberal to dislike what is going on. don’t assume that every conservative voter agrees with Trump.

    ***

    I didn’t like clinton (though I’m not american) but trump has been a disaster so far.

  99. A president “for all Americans” who stressed the importance of American jobs is celebrating an American who can’t find work. Hypocrite.

    Your post speaking of USA being a “Christian natio” (lol) reminds me of a quote by Mahatma Ghandi – “I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.”

    PS – the USA is definitely not a Christian Nation, it is a Capitalist Nation (that has been Empire building through continuous war since 1942) run by people who have read the Bible. Big difference.

    “Kaepernick already is notorious among folks like those who attended Monday night’s rally and elsewhere as grossly unpatriotic.”

    Okay lib kids now that you have read that again, this time does it help you understand this was the President as public speaker warming his crowd? It’s what politicians and other public speakers do and that is definitely part of his job just as it was part of Obama’s. If you want to get into how he is doing that job that is another discussion altogether.

    ——–

    He said HE was going to unify this country. How on earth is this type of comment from him even close to being a step in that direction?

    Point is, it’s not. He doesn’t really care about unifying anything. He wants everyone to do whatever he says, like the people that work in his private businesses do. He can’t stand that it’s not working that way. He wants to be praised….he needs to be praised, and they only place he gets it is at these rallies.

  102. It’s embarrassing. No one can even keep up with the lies and contradictory statements any more. Draft dodger, liar, fool and so thin skinned he tweets multiple times over every tiny criticism. No wonder his fans love him so much, he is exactly like so many of them. Once the door slams on the health care bill, watch how many in the heartland come screaming back into the scene to cry foul.

    Doesn’t he have something better to do? Like Make America Great? Sad.
    ~~~~~~~~~~
    I’m sure the 10 seconds he wasted in that speech were crucial to restoring American prominence.

    I don’t like a lot of the trivial things he does and I agree with the folks that want him off Twitter but some of the folks that hate him are downright bonkers. They are losing their minds because of blind hatred (ironically from the people screaming the loudest about tolerance) and most of them cannot articulate exactly what they have an issue with. Much of it seems to be based on the frenzy rather than the actual actions by POTUS. He has some thin skin…just like Obama. The main difference seems to be the manner in which they addressed perceived slights.

  104. It’s pretty much a badge of honor to get insulted at one of Donnie Gump’s zombie apocalypse rallies.

    =================

    45 has an astonishing disdain for the truth, that is most people’s issue with him and it’s not along party lines. It’s an insult to all Americans. He just had his press secretary say the British were the ones who wiretapped him because of something a pundit said on Fox News who in turn got the story from a Russian propaganda newscast. The White House then apologized to the British, then kind of backed away from the apology and Trump himself took no responsibility and blamed the “respected” attorney on Fox who he got it from. He watches tv and repeats what he sees. That’s what lots of people do, but they aren’t president. He has an massive staff of people to give him real information yet he prefers tv and twitter. And that is terrifying.

  106. I think people should look at the US as our “team”. And right now our QB is Donald Trump. Like it or not, that’s who WE have. Stop feeding off anything that wants to separate us as a people. We are UNITED in the fact that we can all celebrate our INDIVIDUALITY.

    So for the sake of this team, I’m rooting for Trump. But that doesn’t mean I like him.

    Go USA!!!

    you must be referring to O’Bummer.. but he is out of office so…

  108. This dope needs to worry about himself. The lying is out of control. He always tries to divert people’s attention away from the real issues. Impeach this moron.

  109. vedermn8,
    I agree with your response and it seems to underline my point. He knee-jerks on Twitter and winds up sounding stupid and no American enjoys watching their POTUS act foolish. Much of what he says undermines his points because of the manner in which he says it and his ‘political’ helpers are either not seasoned or have been told not to be. Obama had the same feelings as Trump but he addressed them in a more polished manner and had the added benefit of a willing press to help send his message. Everything he said was scrutinized by political advisers before he said it and presented favorably by the media at large. With 45, we get the raw emotion rather than the carefully massaged message from political underlings and the media is determined to undermine him in every way possible. Trump’s problem is that he is assisting in his own denigration by providing detractors with plenty of snipits of unpolished and sometimes ridiculous assertions that go beyond where the valid point lies…and then the point is ignored entirely because the focus is now on the stupidity.

  110. This is all Goodell’s fault. If he was able to buy the Bills on discount (because you know he hardly has enough money to do it), he would just be ruining them like he did the USFL and not the whole country. The USFL, Atlantic City, America. This guy has the Midas touch of running stuff into the ground.

  111. Bravo to Trump. The First Amendment works both ways. Kaepernick loudly calls out Trump as a racist, and Trump calls him back out for hating America. What liberals hate is that Trump doesn’t sit there and take it like Romney, McCain, and Bush. If you think that the majority of America doesn’t agree with Trump on Kaepernick, you need to expand your base of friends and reading because you live in a bubble.

  112. Trump and Kap. 2 peas in a pod.

    Both are terrible at the jobs they are presently assigned.

    Both draw way more attention than their skills deserve.

    Both should just go away.

  113. Hope the pro-Trump folks on PFT are also pro-Patriots.

    Because with The Donald in office, you can bet that Goodell and the NFL owners will be hard pressed to lay a critical eye on Trump’s best buddies Robert, Bill, and Tom.

    So, dust off those cameras!

    Revive those locker room spies!

    Hack into opponents’ sideline headsets!

    Deflate, deflate, deflate!!

    Nothing is gonna get in their way now with King Donald on watch!

    Eight more years of Pats dynasty!

  114. Again, let’s remember what this is all about, freedom of speech. If the badly-coiffed hairdo of a president that spouts lies and then tells us to Believe That, how in the hell can any sane person ever believe word-one coming out of Trump’s mouth? Donnie Boy, your lies are catching up with you buddy. When the real truth comes out about you bending over for Putin, well, let’s just say if we have four more years of Trump, Saturday Night Live is going to have a field day reporting the “truth” weekly.

  115. Trump’s problem is that he is assisting in his own denigration by providing detractors with plenty of snipits of unpolished and sometimes ridiculous assertions that go beyond where the valid point lies…and then the point is ignored entirely because the focus is now on the stupidity.

    ————–

    which gets right to the main issue of whether or not he possesses the amount of sanity and rational behavior to be POTUS.

    many believe he does not, and it is based on his own actions. don’t blame the media because they report about his tweets.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~
    I’m not. I’m just saying he helps them work against him. Many in the media have an agenda and most are anti-Trump. An example of what I meant above: Trump believes he/his team were spied on during the campaign. He personally blames Obama. He figured that since the intelligence services/justice department worked for him, then Obama must have ordered it. The problem is that Trump tweeted that thought and the media jumped on his unproven accusation against the former POTUS. The logic is there but the conclusion was beyond the known facts. We learned over the past few days that Trump/team members WERE spied on but nobody reports that because they are too busy reporting that the tweet was “proven false” because there is no evidence of direct POTUS involvement. They report that because any negativity towards 45 trumps any positive newsworthy items. The media uses the absence of evidence to exonerate Obama as it pertains to the tweet but the absence of evidence of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign does not exonerate Trump. They just believe the evidence has not been found yet and report everything based on that premise. The irony is the role reversal from the Bush/WMD issue from a decade ago. Remember that? Bush was an idiot because he couldn’t prove/find WMD. Now, they can’t prove/find Trump-Russia collusion but it is OK. That is where I have an issue with the media in general. They are incapable of presenting unvarnished facts and allowing us to judge them on our own. Rant over…

  117. Kap Is more patriotic than 50 Donald Trumps. Kap continues to donate to positive charities while the “president” badmouths him. Despicable.

    This is the epitome of what’s wrong with our political system. Identity politics. Government doesn’t work like your checkbook and the welfare/strength/ethics/morality of a nation isn’t a sport.

    This analogy is like rooting for Adrian Petersen.

  119. Kap has done more for Americans than Trump ever has. Google and you’ll see for yourself. Trump will be a failure as President, simply because he’s spending far too much time doing things that a President shouldn’t have time for, or be interested in. Grow up please Mr President, people actually NEED you to do your job.

  120. Since Donald took a knee when the draft board came knocking, he has no right to question anyonyes cause or level of patriotism.

  121. Honestly didn’t think the republicans could find a bigger Ditz than Sarah Palin. … I do hope he is able to produce some good while in office. After all, even a broke clock. ..

  122. Wow, this country becomes more uninformed by the day. You may not like the package delivering the message, but if you seek to verify the content you will find it to be true. Trump wasn’t being “wiretapped”, oh, but he was “under surveillance”. Wake up people, this dude is going to get more abuse than can be imagined for 4 years and he won’t give 2 craps and will keep moving forward. I think he is a bit of a clown, but his intentions are better than anything we have had for 16+ years.

  123. You trump supporters please just keep on painting yourselves into the corner with him. Then, stay there and maybe read some books.

    You have these long, convoluted explanations for every little thing; even the indefensible you are unwilling to concede. I just wish you’d all get the same tattoo so after America implodes and all the rational, smart grownups have to clean up the mess, we can just leave you to rot on the islands of toxic garbage that will sit where the ice cap used to be.

  124. LOL at the notion that liberals are the rational, smart grown-ups. The actions of the “tolerant” left, especially after the election, speak for themselves.

  125. He is the weakest person I have ever seen. It’s amazing. His brain is so small – he cannot address any real problems – just things like this. Here’s what’s amazing – apparently he can keep Kaep from getting a job – but when it comes to the big problems – nada. Glad all you clowns voted for this clown thinking he had a magic wand. Apparently he does – it’s just very small and can only address tiny issues.

  126. Meals on Wheels is something that countless elderly people need; Trump is cutting it from the Budget and some of you people are here praising him and bashing Kaepernick.. You need to really check your priorities.. By the way, you can cut what would amount to pennies relatively speaking off of the defense budget to fund Meals on Wheels. But heaven forbid we do that.
