Trump calls new anthem policy “worse”

AP

When the NFL changed its national anthem policy in May, the owners hoped in part to appease President Donald J. Trump. They failed.

The President has continued to periodically slam the NFL over the anthem issue. During a Thursday rally in Montana, Trump repeatedly called the NFL policy “worse” than the one it replaced.

Hey, how about the NFL?” he said, via Josh Marshall of TalkingPointsMemo.com. “Look, I don’t want to cause controversy. . . . But how about they pass this stupid thing. You don’t have to do this anymore. If you don’t respect the flag, or if you don’t like the country, or whatever it is. Just go into the locker room. . . . I think in many respects, that’s worse. Isn’t that worse than not standing? I think that’s worse. . . . I actually think in many ways it’s worse.”

The President also had some criticism for the Commissioner.

“I heard this thing, they were so happy, the owners,” Trump said. “This Commissioner, where this guy comes from I have no [idea]. They’re paying him $40 million a year, and their ratings are down 20 percent. But you know why their ratings are down? Yes, the flag. But they’re also down because  people find politics — in other words, hitting Trump, incorrectly, but hitting Trump — they find that to be much tougher, meaner, and more interesting than watching a football game. They actually do. And they’re watching the cable networks instead of watching football.”

As previously mentioned, ratings aren’t down “20 percent.” Moreover, Sunday afternoons and evenings aren’t exactly hotbeds for cable news programming. And maybe I’m mistaken, but I thought that the media outlets that were “hitting” the President were failing and struggling and consistently losing viewers.

Regardless, the point continues to be that the President will continue to find ways to harass and to criticize the NFL, no matter what the NFL does. And it will only get worse as the midterm elections get closer.

  1. You can’t please someone so starved for constant attention or who’s also unstable.

  2. When will Republicans learn that Trump is only looking for attention. The guy does nothing for the good of the people. He is a con man whose only purpose is to grab attention and enrich himself and his family. He’s not even a reliable friend unless it serves his pocket to do so.

  3. This issue is low hanging fruit for him and the other dimwits. Too dumb and lazy to tackle real issues.

  4. Gee, it’s almost as if he wants forced patriotism…sorta like…what’s the name of that country he really admires? Rhymes with “Shmorth Shmorea”????

  5. Stop giving Trump the time of day. It’s called a distraction, and you fall for it hook, line, and sinker. Every time. Stop reporting what the Cheeto in Chief has to say every 30 seconds. It’s not even about the NFL or the Anthem.

  6. Trump is a clown.

    Everyone who owns/wears a mAga hat should be required to wear the full uniform.

    Little known fact that the hat comes with a big red nose and floppy shoes.

    Jump lemmings, jump!

  7. Trump literally has no original thoughts…just keeps repeating the same nonsense for the brainwashed dimwits that blindly follow him…they still haven’t figured out that he doesn’t care about them or this country…it’s all about him and his self gratification…

  8. How about re-setting the ‘moral compass’ of the NFL by notifying all teams that ALL players, coaches, trainers, doctors, chain gang, game officials and photographers must stand for the country’s national anthem before every game.

    If that presents a problem for some individuals, then discipline them.

    If we cannot agree as the NFL to honor our country, then we are in deeper trouble than we realize.

    The more we haggle with the dissenters, the more we empower them.

    It must stop…now.

  9. ‘I think in many respects, that’s worse. Isn’t that worse than not standing? I think that’s worse. . . . I actually think in many ways it’s worse.’

    The education and literacy levels in this country are atrocious.

  10. it’s time for the donald to do his job instead of tweeting, eating big macs and picking fights with whoever his dementia riddled brain thinks of next

  11. Every time this dude needs a win he goes after the NFL. Glad to see him putting in time where it’s really need. Great job buddy!

  12. “…the President will continue to find ways to harass and to criticize the NFL, no matter what the NFL does.”

    —————————

    And PFT will continue to criticize the President, no matter what the President does. It’s just how liberals roll.

  13. The president is really starting to embarrass himself now.

    The issue was put to bed…until a little pandering was needed to stir up a crowd at a speech.

  14. Florio. We like you. You should continue to be tough and tell it like you see it. Be a little rough. Sounds a little like you are appeasing vocal complainers.

  15. I wish Trump would mind his own business and leave me alone. I am so sick of his constant negative attacks on everything and everyone. He is the master destroyer. It is a constant attack on everything.

  16. Good god give me a break, does this moron-in-chief even understand how to say a proper sentence, you don’t look smarter when you say the same thing over and over again in the same sentence, you look like the in over your head, uneducated moron that he is. So sick of people with this anthem policy, I come from a military family, my Grandfather was a Prisoner of War for 2 yrs in WW2, while this spoon in his mouth kid got off 5 times as a draft dodger, so sick of him. His stance on POWs is a bigger disrespect to the military than some athlete kneeling, the guy and his supporters need to get over themselves.

  17. content aside, the way he talks is absolutely infuriating. Just a constant flow of mental diarrhea. There’s periods when he’s continueing an idea, and run on sentences hopping from one idea to another. It’s a nightmare.

    content not aside…it’s a nightmare

  18. This guy is never going to stop. When Trump finds an issue that resonates with his base, he will never, ever let it go. The owners were cowards to respond to him, thinking he would be satisfied. He will never be satisfied. The man needs to be ignored.

  19. Political speech is very different than speech under oath. Hyperbole is very normal for political speech, yet the media constantly dissects Trump’s political speech as if it’s testimony under oath. No other President has been held to such a standard. Remember “If you like your current healthcare you can keep it” lie? I do. Remember the media outrage?
    Me neither. Everyone knows that Trump’s speeches are political theater. Get over it.

  20. Do we have to have politics in each and every aspects of our lives, can we just sit down a watch a ballgame and decompress after a hard weeks work.

  21. Trump is sounding like a broken record. Every rally he does, he says the same thing….news flash, there’s other news going on try saying something that you will actually act upon. Get this Trump monkey out of the White House.

  22. Just another attempt to distract from this clown. Our economy is humming along and now his brain dead tariffs go into effect tonight. Why? Who the hell knows.

    Our President is a total idiot.

  23. I love how every reporter / columnist has all the right facts and figures, and more logical views on topics than our President. It is they who are almighty, superior and holier than thou, and that people should dismiss the presidents position because they have all the real answers 😂😂

  24. So, because a football player who happens to have a microphone and camera in front of his face, he is the voice of a cause that should be respected by Americans?
    Get off of your pedestal.
    Although you have more of an avenue to spew your distaste for America, it doesn’t make you any more in the know.
    Speak with your vote and leave critical thinking to Americans who refuse to live in your self-imagined bubble. The people have spoken and will again soon.

  25. This all goes back to when Trump and the USFL sued the NFL and got treble damages for the whopping total of $3!….The NFL made Trump look like a buffoon and he’s never forgot it. He’s a petty, narcissistic, sociopath……..

  26. Such an intelligent and articulate speaker Trump is. Had they blocked out names etc I would have thought it was a 6 year old talking. He’s just sour because he’ll never own an NFL team and because his attempt at besting the NFL with his own league was a “Bigly” “Uge” failure.

  27. The NFL had two good options. Enforce the game day policy as it was written (everyone stands) and there shouldn’t have been blowback because the NFL and teams are giving a lot to help the players voice their concerns (in other ways than not standing). Or go back to the way it was before where none of the players were required to be on the field for the anthem.

    But fining teams when players don’t stand is going to cause even more news focus and we are sooooo tired of it!!

  28. Trump’s Vice President Mike Pence flew to a game in Indy just to leave early to please “their base”. Pence tweeted #winning after the policy was implemented to please the “Trump base”. “The Base” are some NFL fans but all NFL fans are not
    their base [but that other liberalsruineverything guy who comments here seems
    like he is a part of all that] The NFL, mainly Goodell, needs to realise you can’t please Trump OR his base. They should ignore Trump. I don’t like politics during football and I don’t need to know how Obama filled out his NCAA bracket.

  29. The NFL deserves the flack they are getting for not standing up for a rule that was already in their bylaws. All players will stand and respect the flag which represents our great nation while the national anthem is being played. I know of no job where the employees are allowed to take a political stand while on the job other than those in the media like Florio.

  30. Ratings are way down. Don’t try and hide that fact. You can skew the numbers all day with things like “people are switching to mobile streaming”. But don’t lie and say ratings haven’t dipped significantly. (18.8%)

  31. The owners must be going nuts. They had already decided Trump wasn’t qualified to own a team, and now they have to listen to crowd baiting.

  32. Tr&mp is an idiot who has no understanding of freedom and embarrasses the country every day; this being only the latest example.

  33. Doesn’t this guy have more important things to? Insult world leaders and other matters of grave importance.
    If there is a fight to be picked you can be sure the WH will weigh in. Pathetic.

  34. When you start out making up a excuses like “bone spurs”, the fake facts just roll on every year from there.

  35. The NFL deserves this treatment. They took the appeasement route and they were called out for being weak.

  36. All politics aside, you are only here if you love NFL football. This guy wants to hurt NFL football. I’m not talking ANYTHING about his politics. It’s personal with this guy.

  37. He would know what worse is, after all he allowed someone who was proven to be corrupt to run the EPA. Too bad he doesn’t pay as much attention to who he appoints to important government offices as he does a privately run sports business.

  38. Why on earth did Trump run for president? His true calling is a radio host. He would’ve fit in perfectly with all the nut jobs on talk radio and he’d have a few hundred callers stroking his ego all day. He would’ve been so much happier, and so would the rest of the world.

  39. Here’s a thought… quit reporting it… just a thought!

    this “president” is a smart business man, he uses the media to further his agenda and by picking on the NFL it makes him look powerful because the NFL is powerful…

    So powerful they kept him out of their playground and he is bitter because he is not used to losing…

    Donald Trump might make America a better place, I don’t know!

    but if he is worrying about the NFL he is not doing the job he was elected to do!

  40. Who cares what he thinks about people exercising their first amendment rights. The Supreme Court recently ruled that workers have the first amendment right to not pay union dues, even if those dues are used to negotiate pay raises for them. Go figure. The first amendment is now so broadly applied that almost anything can be justified using the first amendment, including of course the right of corporations to make unlimited contributions to political campaigns.

  41. We’re the customers, you cater to us or we stop consuming your product.

    America has spoken, Trump is simply our voice.

  42. The current administration is quietly discharging immigrant recruits who were promised a path to citizenship if they served.

    Mar-a-lago applied for 40 permits to hire foreign workers per labor department data.

    Maga right?

  43. The clueless NFL owners fell right into Trump’s trap. No matter what they did, short of mandating all players must stand for the anthem, he was going to attack them.

    By allowing Trump to make it about the flag and patriotism, when it wasn’t about that at all, the owners failed miserably. The biggest suckers were Jerry Jones and Bob McNair. That’s not surprising.

  44. Best Brain, the very best. a stable genius…. except he cant put together a coherent argument without interrupting and derailing himself into muddled nonsense.

  45. Too bad Trump can’t even string together coherent sentences. His thoughts don’t even make sense and his attempts to prove his points are incoherent and wrong.. Sad.

  46. This piece of garbage dodged the draft how many tines and he gets to tell people how they can show respect to our service men and women?

    When our nation needed him and called upon him he pretended to have a hurt foot.

  47. This guy deflects so well he should have played safety. Trust me, he would have been the greatest safety the NFL has ever seen if it wasn’t for bone spurs. Nobody knows more about deflecting and the NFL than this guy.

  48. Reality T.V. created this monster.

    Can someone PLEASE just stop the world. I want to get off.

  49. I personally believe that kneeling at the anthem, in protest of what you honestly perceive as an injustice, honors the soldiers and police officers who have died to protect our freedom. I understand that others may disagree and I respect their right to do so, so long as they also respect my right to disagree with them. That said, I agree with our President (who I disapprove of overall, did not vote for, will most likely never vote for, but whom I still acknowledge as the duly elected presidnt of the United States). The NFL can’t have it both ways,make your stand one way or the other, understand you’re going to anger people either way, but stand for what you truly believe. If you did that, I’d probably still watch even if you happen to side against me on the issue.

  50. You’re dumb of you listen to the President.

    And before your panties are in a bunch you delicate snowflake Trump supporters remember the man you thought worthy of the most important job in the world has spent many hours thinking about and discussing the NFL and it’s anthem policy rather than something that can meaningfully change your lives. You can’t complain about what the world is doing that you don’t like if you keep harping on something that’s entertainment.

    But keep being Trump supporters you. He’s gonna make all the boogie men disappear so you can go back to sleepers in your monster truck sheets without worrying someone’s gonna scare you as take your lollipop.

  51. We’d all be much better of fun if we just accepted the fact that Donald Trump is a spiteful moron who has no business running a bake sale so that we can just elect a decent person who is morally and intellectually qualified to be President and move on with our lives.

    What we’re dealing with right now is truly embarrassing.

  52. “…the owners hoped in part to appease President Donald J. Trump. They failed.”

    The only solution the owners could have come up with would be to fire the sons of bitches who did not do exactly what they were told.

    And then watch their ratings drop a lot more than 20 percent…while the players get their remaining guaranteed money in one lump sum to watch the games from their couches and smoke as much weed as they want.

  53. Don’s obviously still bitter over the NFL owners’ continued rejection of him & feels compelled (despite his absolute ignorance of the NFL’s CBA) to rail against its nat’l anthem policy. Don should stop pumping up his reject rallies with NFL race baiting talk & should focus on his family’s grifting in the WH (they’re good at it).

  54. President Trumps absolutely right. Either respect the flag and this country or get out. Don’t just walk back to the locker room. Keep walking until you see Mexico or Canada, Love it or leave it point blank!

  55. The owners thought Trump would go away after they pushed through their policy without consulting players and now they are STILL getting it from him. And the players are upset and the issue is now back in the spotlight. They have no one to blame but themselves.

  56. It’s all he’s got, so he’ll keep it up till it stops working… great stuff from a 3 time draft dodger… what a scumbag loser

    Yes, I’m dumb of me and I grammar lessons of need also.

    As far as you guys who want to talk about your WWII stories, I’m with ya! I didn’t watch my buddies die face down in the mud in Nam so that this president could have an opinion and actually use his mouth to say it.

  59. Trump is all about Trump. He has alternative motives for trashing the NFL.

    Now he wants 5 billion tax dollars for the fence Mexico was supposed to pay for. You Trumps supporters have been hoodwinked! He doesn’t care about you or me.

    He trashes our allies and cozies up with Putin and Kim Jong Il. Imagine had Oabana done that, and the Rights reaction…HYPOCRITES!

    Trump needs to butt-out of the NFL’s affairs and stick to his own, we know has plenty of them!

    if Trump puts Roger Badell In Guantanamo Bay, then Trump will win 538 electoral college votes in 2020

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

    You say that because you know he lost the popular to crooked Hillary. He is only in the WH because of the Electoral vote, he’s not who the People (popular vote) voted for.

    As Trump would say…. “SAD!”

  61. Trump doesn’t have an open door policy, he has a revolving door policy. Worst White House (p)Resident EVER. And that’s saying a lot after what Bush did in the Middle East.

    Don’t post drunk. Or stupid.

    This is what the left is. Either ignorant idiots that attempt to make themselves look intellectual by throwing around adjectives such as “spiteful moron” (while struggling mightily to put a simple sentence together), or violent psychos like the guy in Texas who rips a Trump hat off a kid and throws a drink in his face.

    Yeah, your ilk would be much better than the guy who is resurrecting the economy, restoring pride in America (I know you lefties hate that) and telling it like it is.

    And stop calling yourselves “liberal”. You’re not. You are authoritarians, fascists and communists. True liberals want nothing to do with you.

  65. Two things that should have nothing to do with each other:

    1) National anthems at non-government/non-military events

    2) Presidents and entertainment entities like professional sports leagues, musicians, and actors/filmmakers

    I do think Trump is a bozo, but I’m apolitical, so I’ll give the guy credit when and if it’s due. And I would give him credit if he just piped down about this whole thing, rather than trying to force patriotism like some kind of dictator.

  72. Trump speaks. The left loses their minds.
    Also, if The Don is media attention driven, what does that make the last self “noble prize” winning president; Quiet as a rat?

  73. Maybe he thinks this will take attention away from the Stormy Daniels affair and pay off. I don’t agree with players kneeling for the National Anthem, but on the other hand, it is none of Trumps business. He has issues bigger than this to deal with. Do your job moron!

  74. What about the fans walking through the concourse, or standing in line for a beer, or a hot dog, or going to the bathroom, or tailgating? Shouldn’t the NFL shut all that down, so everyone can stand for the anthem? A lot of people screaming about patriotism, yet a huge % of the fans aren’t even in their seats standing at attention. Why is that?

    I prefer self-declared super patriots who don’t lie about bone spurs to duck the draft five times.

    Speaking of lying, he was deferred for bone spurs once. 4 times for college, with a few million other men also quite fit for duty. Having been of draft age and luck enough to get a very high number I know that deferments went to liberal and conservative alike. Also, growing up in the Liberal Motherland of Massachusetts, I know many liberals who got jumped into the guards or reserves because daddy was a politician. Getting out of VN was a thing for all, liberals and conservatives alike.

  79. I am just curious if the people who don’t like Trump support the loony far left direction of the NEW Democratic party?

  81. Suggestion for Democrats. Tear down your party, rebuild it without the radical extreme fringe left that has hijacked its agenda, and then by 2028 when your party is sensible again I will listen when you ask for my vote.

    #WalkAway

  82. Trump is a master of directing the narrative. He’s doing it again. So many distractions, not enough time to cover them all.

    But come mid-terms, and most of all his re-election bid, this will all come back to bite him in the ass.

    Trump will have opposition in the primary as well, he may not even make it to the general election.

    I’m sorry, this is an idiotic argument. If I’m helping my grandma out of a wheelchair and someone in earshot plays the anthem I should what, drop granny and salute?

    It’s about a pro-active protest using the anthem as a vehicle for your opinion at an open to the public ticketed event. I do know that when some Americans protested Muslims after 911 liberals lost their minds.

    That’s the problem. The radical fringe left and black bloc wearing “protesters” are the face of the new Democrat party. Socialism and radical extreme fringe leftism has no place in this country and never will.

    Is this why GOP candidates have HAD to adopt the Trump agenda or be voted out immediately? With all due respect, you simply don’t have a clue.

  86. @all the lefties – you claim you want these NFL players to be able to say and do (politically) what they want when they want, correct?

    Then in the same breath you claim you DO NOT want the President to be allowed to comment on the situation.

    Do you see it? Can you see the contradictory, authoritarian insanity of your position?

    You only want opinions expressed that agree with your own! THAT’S NOT LIBERAL!

  87. Keep after them Donald. You are so right!!! Love it when you get under the NFL’s skin.

  88. Maybe if today’s Democrats stopped #Resisting and starting #Listening to the people that swept their anointed one Crooked Hillary out of politics they wouldn’t be the mess that they are today and they could present a real alternative to President Trump in a couple years.

Having been of draft age and luck enough to get a very high number I know that deferments went to liberal and conservative alike. Also, growing up in the Liberal Motherland of Massachusetts, I know many liberals who got jumped into the guards or reserves because daddy was a politician. Getting out of VN was a thing for all, liberals and conservatives alike.

    I also grew up in Mass and saw the rich, mostly Republicans, dodge the draft or get politically placed spots in the guard, coast guard etc. i was drafted out of college and served in Viet Nam. Those who avoided the draft like Trump were and are selfish cowards afraid to sacrifice for their country preferring to others die for them. Your view seems clouded by time and political bias but as a Trumper its expected…..honesty is not a quality ever admired by republicans today.

  91. These are your brightest and best liberals. Should I go on? We survived lying and incoherent clowns before, we can do it again!

    ——

    between July 2016 and May 2017 there were 15 blanket denials, from Trump or members of his team, that there was any contact with Russia/Russians, all of which have been proven false.

    In fact there are 82 documented contacts between members of his campaign team/advisors and Russian operatives. 24 of those were meetings (including skype meetings). Every one of these have either been admitted to or are listed in indictments. The people who made involved:

    Michael Cohen
    Paul Manafort
    Roger Stone
    Donald Trump Jr.
    Jeff Sessions
    J.D. Gordon
    Jared Kushner
    Carter Page
    Michael Flynn
    Erik Flynn
    George Papadopoulos
    Anthony Scaramucci
    Rick Gates

    And yet none of them contacted federal authorities, instead they tried to cover up every one of them.

    It is illogical to think that none of these people remembered any of these contacts until they were presented with proof.

  92. Mueller’s getting closer. BTW: Attention Bendict Donald: Since this is politics as football as usual, see if your mancrush Putin will return Robert Kraft’s SB ring.

    Trump’s Vice President Mike Pence flew to a game in Indy just to leave early to please “their base”. Pence tweeted #winning after the policy was implemented to please the “Trump base”. “The Base” are some NFL fans but all NFL fans are not
    their base [but that other liberalsruineverything guy who comments here seems
    like he is a part of all that] The NFL, mainly Goodell, needs to realise you can’t please Trump OR his base. They should ignore Trump. I don’t like politics during football and I don’t need to know how Obama filled out his NCAA bracket.
    ———————————————

    So do you think the NFL base is a bunch of goobers like you with man buns and skinny jeans? I think not. It’s people with jobs that are willing to spend money on it. If you feel the need to make stuff up go right ahead. Trump is a hard dose of reality and it’s fun watching him poke people in the eye then they flop around like a fish. He has also exposed the Democrat Party as a bunch of communists and it’s making his own base grow by the day. Good times.

    Trump is a master of directing the narrative. He’s doing it again. So many distractions, not enough time to cover them all.

    But come mid-terms, and most of all his re-election bid, this will all come back to bite him in the ass.

    Trump will have opposition in the primary as well, he may not even make it to the general election.

    ————–
    There is zero chance President Trump is primaried.

    There’s also zero chance Trump loses to a fringe radical leftist Democratic candidate in the general. A Democrat like Gabbard would have a shot but today’s Democratic party would never nominate her.

    It was 3 blue collar states in particular that cost Crooked H the election. I’m sure there are a few sensible Democrats who understand why those states voted the way they did and are working hard to align their party with those voters interest.

    Actually Trump is causing the Democratic party to implode. They are moving so far to the Left that as someone pointed out above even Alan Dershowitz is not Progressive enough. Calling for elimination if ICE, open borders and creating 47 genders is not resonating with Joe Luncbox. They are showing their true colors and it may take them decades to recover.

    3 things,

    I’m not a republican, never have been. Voted Democrat until Reagan when it became clear that the left was screwing it up.
    I did not vote for Trump, in fact I predicted he wouldn’t make a full year.
    You did not see mostly republicans in Mass get deferments. That’s typical liberal claptrap. Back that up with some facts please.

    Perhaps you’re the one with clouded memory.

  117. True patriotism hates injustice in its own land more than anywhere else.

    The injustice is a guy who is afraid to serve his own country, talks about disrespect of the flag, then requests a full on military parade for November costing $$$$$$$$$$$$. I wonder if he knows what Independence Day celebrates?

  118. All the Trump supporters will be crying soon enough with the mid terms putting Don the Con on impeac watch and then Boom Mueller drops his bomb shell. Those worrying about what the Clown in Charge says soon wont matter.

  120. I am often amazed by the relentless support of a man who himself & members of his team made, from June 2016 through May 2017, no less than 15 blanket statements denying any contact with Russia/Russians whatsover, but in reality had 82 documented contacts, 24 of which were meetings, with Russian operatives, by 13 different campaign members. And by documented, I mean ones that were later admitted to when confronted with proof, or are listed in indictments.

    The fact are out there, if you choose to look for them.

  121. why do they play the anthem before sports anyway? i understand in the olympics or world cup, but football? dumb. just get rid of it. its not like they are the armed forces. also, trump is a classless dolt.

  122. It is amazing the number of comments on this story. This is why he does it folks, you take the bait every time. He has you hooked on everything he does or says.

    “If people are talking about you, you are winning.”

    He’s a workaholic, he verbally mow’s people down left and right. Even when he loses, he still wins at the same time somehow.

    Look at the attention we give to super rich politicians
    (like Obama, Hillary, Trump, etc.) and hollywood weirdos in this society, like they are somehow better than us and smarter than us.

    No, they just have more money than us. Money = power.

  125. How much time did Trump spend in the Military. Oh I remember, he was declared physically unfit and given a 4F exemption. Strange at age seventy and running for President he is now healthy as a horse. Dads money has protected him his whole life. Someone who avoided serving his time should not be talking about patriotism. His type of 4f exemption is known as the cowards way out.

  126. This is coming from a guy who has committed treason with Russia. Absolutely classic.

    -Further Militarization of Police

    -Immigration
    -Hive-minded Party Politics
    -Logic, Reason, Truth, and Decency
    -Gerrymandering and “Electioneering”

    But yeah man, The Anthem is your hot button topic? He doesn’t even understand what even sparked the Anthem situation to begin with. He still thinks it has something to do with the Military for some reason.

    We are governed by a man with the Intellect and Emotional stability of a juvenile with very little grasp of the issues he is actually attempting to oversee.

    however why the endless denials of contacts/meetings that have proven to be true? why the endless denial that the Russians tried to impact our election when 17 different US security & intelligence agencies have determined that? why the endless amnesia? why do the explanations/reasons/excuses keep evolving? why not contact federal authorities when offered dirt on an opponent by representatives of an adversarial nation?

    Although I am certain those are rhetorical questions, I will provide the answers for those who choose to only watch Fox news and, therefore, have no clue what is going on in this country and world.

    The answer is…because Donald Trump, in addition to being a well documented coward, racist, bigot, and misogynist, is a traitor who should absolutely be impeached for his treasonous activities. We can and should, however, give Donald Trump the due process that he wants to take away from millions and let the Supreme Court decide if the civilian Donald Trump can be tried in a court of law for treason after he is impeached as president.

    Mueller was the bagman for the Uranium One deal which sent large amounts of enriched uranium by order of the Clinton State Department to THE RUSSIANS in return for large cash contributions to the CLINTON FOUNDATION, which is currently under investigation for fraud and abuse.

    I know you would like to point to your sources, such as Vanity Fair, CNN, MSNBC and other failing discredited “news” media, so go right ahead. Step onboard that sinking ship.

    And if anyone is wondering WHY the left is trying to promote their ridiculous “Trump’s people had conversations with representatives of a foreign superpower that the U.S. is on good diplomatic terms with” narrative, give Hilary Clinton’s mentor Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” a good read.

    “The so-called Uranium One deal in 2010 handed Russia control of 20 percent of the U.S.’s uranium supply. Hillary Clinton served on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), which unanimously approved the partial sale of the Canadian mining company Uranium One to Russian nuclear giant Rosatom. FBI agents and the confidential informant made secret recordings, gathered records and intercepted emails dating back to 2009 that showed that Russian officials had compromised an American uranium trucking firm with bribes and kickbacks. However, the Department of Justice did not bring charges until 2014.”

    From Fox News –
    “What was the Uranium One deal? In 2013, Rosatom, backed by the Russian state, acquired a Canadian uranium mining company, now called Uranium One, which has assets in the U.S. Uranium is a key material for making nuclear weapons. Through the deal, Russia is able to own about 20 percent of U.S. uranium production capacity. Some investors reportedly donated millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation. Former President Bill Clinton also received a $500,000 speaking fee in Russia and reportedly met with Vladimir Putin around the time of the deal.”

    The truth will set you free.

    Oh I understand the nature of the transaction quite well. The purchases “donated” almost $180M to the Clinton Foundation as part of the quid pro quo.

    But tell me, what possible interest would America have by selling 20% of our uranium to a Russian company? How does this in any way help serve our nation?

    I don’t agree with the sale nor have I claimed that it helps our nation. But most of what you claim is not true.

    and for future reference, at one time those mines had 20% of the production capacity of in-situ recovery, now down to 10% according to the NRC in September 2017. They account for 6% of all production (not all mines use in-situ recovery).

    Look at the bright side, you found your Russian collusion. To bad it was the Clintons doing the colluding……..

    He’s right, stand up or don’t play. Your an employee for a job, we don’t make the rules. I make $60k and I am told what to do on a daily basis

    “You’re,” not “your” is the abbreviation for “you are,”

    For example: “You’re starting to sound like your president”

    Name another country that will pay the players in excess of $28 million annually. The USA is not perfect, no place is. But it is the best place on earth and should be respected by the players who are clueless as to how great the USA really is. Only when they wake up and support this great country will viewers return.”

    This smells like road apples. And have you ever checked the annual income of the top tier European soccer players?

  153. Also I refuse to respect a man who doesn’t know the words to the National Anthem, and needs his immigrant wife to remind him to put his hand over his heart.

  154. Look at the bright side, you found your Russian collusion. To bad it was the Clintons doing the colluding……..

    that’s it? that’s the best you can do?

  155. I realize that freedom of expression is part of this great Nation and support it. However, as a retired Marine, I too am allowed to be offended by what I consider to be disrespecting the flag.

    How about re-setting the ‘moral compass’ of the NFL by notifying all teams that ALL players, coaches, trainers, doctors, chain gang, game officials and photographers must stand for the country’s national anthem before every game.

    If that presents a problem for some individuals, then discipline them.

    If we cannot agree as the NFL to honor our country, then we are in deeper trouble than we realize.

    The more we haggle with the dissenters, the more we empower them.

    It must stop…now.’

    You know comrade, Making America Great Again and Fascism sound a whole lot alike.

  157. Americans are such a hoot. In the face of real problems like healthcare, climate change, and income inequality they’d rather worry about a flag and a song. No wonder this country is falling apart, its priorities are so screwed up. Just look at all these posts, you’d think that someone got shot! Come on, people, let’s get the freaking football season started and put all this schitt behind us. None of it is truly important anyways.
