Aaron Rodgers wants NFL and its players to ignore President Trump’s criticism

AP

Aaron Rodgers loves that LeBron James ignored President Donald Trump’s criticism, which included mocking the NBA star’s intelligence. The Packers quarterback called James’ non-response “absolutely beautiful.”

“At a time where he’s putting on display his school, which is changing lives, there’s no need [to respond],” Rodgers told Michael Silver of NFL Media. “Because you’re just giving attention to that (tweet); that’s what they want. So just don’t respond.”

Rodgers suggests the NFL could learn a thing or two from James. The best response, Rodgers said, is no response to President Trump’s shots at the league and its players over the national anthem.

“I think that the more that we give credence to stuff like that, the more it’s gonna live on,” Rodgers said. “I think if we can learn to ignore or not respond to stuff like that — if we can — it takes away the power of statements like that.”

Rodgers has never taken a knee during the anthem, but he said critics have unfairly and inaccurately cast NFL players who have protested during the anthem as unpatriotic or anti-military. Players have protested to raise awareness about social injustice.

“I don’t know how many times we can say, as a player and as a group, how much we love and support and appreciate the troops, and the opportunities this country allows us,” Rodgers said. “But this is about equality and something bigger than ourselves, and bringing people together, and love and connectedness and equality and social justice, and putting a light on people who deserve to have the attention for their causes and their difficult situations that they’re in. You know, people have their opinion — you shouldn’t do it during the anthem, you shouldn’t do it during this — that’s fine. But let’s not take away from what the real issue is.”

    _______________________________________________________________________

    “They” are the people who post negative tweets or comments on message boards are screaming for attention only to broadcast to the world they are lame.

  2. Rodgers is the man. Everyone should ignore Trump. He appeals to an ignorant minority and got lucky. He spouts about how great the economy is; As a percentage of GNP, wages are at a nineteen year low. The morons don’t care……..because they “won!”

  3. Love how they cover their eara whenever someone disagrees. Free speech is not a one way street, progressives. Feel free to move to one of Earth’s many fine socialist paradises if that’s what you want, though.

  4. The players, like the media, celebrities, etc, thought it was the Bush days and they could say whatever they wanted without the guy fighting back. Those days are over. And they can’t stand it.

    Trump asked the players to offer up people that should be pardoned. Instead, the players signed their names to an op-ed full of platitudes but did not name one person they thought Trump should pardon. You know why? because they were afraid Trump would actually pardon that person, and they could not have that happen. They want this political fight as much as Trump does. Only Trump wins it every time.

  5. Why would James respond? Even though his school is paid for by tax payers, and the media is covering that up perfectly, he has no reason to.

    People who want to hide the reality that the President, for whatever reason, is aiding and abetting the undermining of our democracy by foreign powers. The type of people who have screamed at me about Russia in the past suddenly are silent today but very worried about the anthem because pretend problems are more important than real ones.

  7. I agree to an extent….. Players should leave political & PERCEIVED social injustice issues out of Football completely & find OTHER PLATFORMS to use to bring their points across….. I, as a fan, DO NOT WATCH FOOTBALL FOR DEMONSTRATIONS ABOUT THOSE THINGS…… I WATCH TO BE ENTERTAINED & am sick & tired of this topic!!!!!

  8. You can tell how important this issue is to the players by the all the events, actions, etc. the Players Union did on their behalf to bring attention to the “equality and social justice” issues their protesting…oh, wait a minute…

  9. Most people are all for social justice and equality for everyone. What football players fail to realize is that during a game is the wrong time to do it. We tune in for a 3 hour respite from all of the problems in the world. Start bringing problems to the game and people tune out because we have enough problems in life already. Find a better platform than game day and most people would be behind them!

  10. Rodgers went to highly liberal Cal. No surprise that he’s cool with the players using the anthem to make a political statement. Sports and sports media was so much better when they didn’t force-feed you politics with their coverage on a daily basis.

  11. Wow. Well said. Yet another pro athelete outclassing and outsmarting the President and most of his voters

  12. So do your stuff on your own time. Not in the Stadium on your OWNERS time or the FANS time. Not in front of fans who paid hundreds of dollars to attend a football game…NOT a protest. I didnt spend $600 for parking,and tickets to watch you overpaid , disrespectful clowns protest inequality, when you are making millions of dollars to play a game, many of us would love to do for much less money.
    You clowns STILL dont get it

  13. Here is better advice, ignore everything Trump says and tweets. Only the dumbest of the dumb are playing along at this point. Some idea that his daily lies and making fun of other people is leadership and making this country great again. “Are you saying that everyone who still supports Trump is some kind of dummy?”. If you really must ask that at this point, get someone to help you decipher my statement.

  14. Hey Rodgers, majority of your fan base is extremely conservative and views kneeling for the national anthem to be disrespectful.

  15. Aaron Charles Rogers Hall of Fame plaque should read -“Great Quarterback, likes to eat hot pockets at movies, Super Bowl winner, intellectually vapid, NFL MVP, victim of concussed political moron syndrome, Packer icon, & spotlight hog per Greg Jennings.”

  16. The day that Trump called the pointless kneelers son-of-a-b’s was the greatest day for their little movement.

    It would have died a long time ago if he hadn’t opened his trap.

  17. To the dude speaking of Democracy: Hillary Clinton paid GPS Fusion to dig up dirt on Trump. The FBI and the Justice Department colluded to stop Trump from getting in to White House to protect the swamp, while Hillary Clinton backdoored Sanders on the Democrat side. Bruce Oher wife works for GPS Fusion. They faked the whole dossier. Putin said on National TV that Hillary Clinton got $400,000,000 from Russia. Bill Clinton got $500,000 for a one hour speech. Wake up. All Trump asked was for people to stand for the flag so many died for. Wake up. Why do you think Facebook, Twitter, etc are banning things against DEMS. People, your govt has been wired the whole time, and only Tump could stop it.

  18. Here is better advice, ignore everything Trump says and tweets. Only the dumbest of the dumb are playing along at this point.

    I got my grad degree years ago, you? And I know plenty of other highly-educated people who love Trump. It’s cute how lefties always accuse those with different views of being less-intelligent. Brings back memories of how people acted in grade school.

  19. Thank you Donald Trump. Keep up the good work. Let’s see how many people ignore the NFL This Year. I bet it’s a lot more than ignore the President.

  20. I agree with Rodgers. Only take it one more step. Ignore Trump on all issues. Because he’s so one sided and vulgar. Completely out of touch.

    Trump drags it out on purpose because he knows most Americans agree with him and don’t like anthem protests. He has no problem bringing it up over and over because it’s a winning issue, if you are talking about overall opinion. The players are the ones who should finally drop it and use a more appropriate platform. It’s only going to alienate more fans the more they do it. Trump knows this and is letting them make fools of themselves.

  22. He’s right. It’s what they should have done the very first time President Trump banged on the anthem issue. Instead after the President thoughtfully left out some gasoline and matches for them the damn fools tripped all over each other in a headlong rush to set themselves on fire. No matter where you stand on this issue or Trump’s presidency in general if you look at this dispassionately it was a straight up W for him that came at the cost of a simple tweak that could have been just as simply ignored.

  23. Ignore Trump…? Lolol…the Media cant get enough of him…24/7 non stop coverage…ever heard of Trump Derangment Syndrome, Aaron…?

  24. “Hey Rodgers, majority of your fans are extremely conservative and view kneeling for the anthem as disrespectful”.

    Wrong, the great majority of Packers fans are great Americans who understand that the US stands for equal rights for all.

  28. Athletes are citizens just like you and me. How is anyone supposed to raise awareness to anything if you say don’t do in my sports? You think people are going to see them at their homes doing this stuff? All you Trumpsters need to get your head out of his ass you’re the real snowflakes getting triggered by these protests. The point of protests is to make people uncomfortable. Deal with it.

    I find your post rather interesting;particlarly,I paraphrase,disrespectful clowns making millions.It is very interesting you point that out,when those clowns are protesting for others ,who don’t have a public voice.At this point the public has been made aware of the injustices,many municipalities have had interaction with those”disrespectful clowns” in the form of meetings and there has, statistically,less incidents of social injustice.My point: it is working even if some people don’t see the forest for the trees.

  32. Rodgers is right Trump is a duplicitous divider of national unity. If you don’t realize he has sold out to the Russian a long time ago.. you like Trump’s strategy of divide and conquer. He has emboldened closeted bigots held in place for years by political correctness. He has unleashed a daily dose of hate, insults, name calling and his followers think now it is alright to be outright racist and that’s exactly what they are. Putin’s plan is working perfectly but not for long. Everyone is free to speak and with the President never ending tweets we must for our own self preservation. Don’t worry no one is going to shut the TV or sell their season tickets because we all love football way to much. Take a knee it only takes a split second if you don’t like it, you move to another land we are staying right here like it or not.

    Aaron

    The real issue is Colin Kaepernick got benched and started pouting by kneeling.

    It’s only after the fact that he and subsequent kneelers came up with this alternative theory to try and justify their disgraceful actions.

    Obviously Rodgers doesn’t want to kneel himself, because he doesn’t believe this method is a proper way to try and bring about change.

    Rodgers is just using his bully pulpit (at least he’s not doing it on the field while in uniform) to attempt to diss the President of the United States.

    Where exactly is Rodgers saying, or even suggesting, anything that restricts or suppresses the free speech of Trump or anyone else? Rodgers is simply pointing out, while Trump is free to tweet as often and as stupidly as he chooses, the rest of us are free to ignore his stupidity.

  42. These guys can’t get out of their own way. Please continue to tell us we are wrong about your protest. It has been very effective in changing how we view the NFL. After all people love when you tell them what their perspective is… I think it’s disrespectful. Not only to the military but to the hundreds of thousands of officers who do their job with honor. Officers that die in the line of duty protecting the public.

SJWs like Kaep made Trump (and his baggage) look like a decent person. The Dems can only blame themselves for Trump winning. Until they learn to be more mature and ditch the SJW rhetoric/tactics, they can forget about the midterms and 2020. And maybe 2024 if they refuse to back down.

    “Even though his (Lebron’s) school is paid for by taxpayers”.

    Good grief, you people will lie about anything.
    ——————————
    Keep burying your head in the sand…

    His school will be funded approx. 75% by the taxpayers. The estimated annual operating costs are $8m. Lebron’s foundation will contribute $2m annually.

    The building is a district-owned building, the buses the kids will use are district-owned and operated, the teachers will be hired and paid by the district, the free meals will be provided by the district.

    Now, as anyone with a modicum of common sense knows, the “district” is funded by: the local taxpayers.

  45. Just a quick reminder to everyone in this thread that we all love football, we all love America and probably agree on a lot more points than we disagree on.

    Aaron wants to ignore the politicians and concentrate on football. Sounds good. I bet we mostly agree on that too.

  46. Racism is a real issue that needs to be addressed. So is protesting during a ball game which is the real – real issue for the NFL. I’m just not as enthusiastic about football now. I don’t choose to react that way, it’s just how I feel. Being a fan is definitely about emotions. In fact that is why you just don’t step on that by distracting from the event. These guys have a platform for protesting outside of each game that dwarfs what 99.8% of the population has.

  47. Maybe Erin should focus more on football and less on politics, throwing his team mates under the bus and trying to extort millions of dollars from the Packers.

    What are the Vegas odds on how long the duct tape nuts and bolts holding whats left of his collarbone lasts?

  48. After 100 years of “raising awareness”; afterschool specials; movies; plays; music; art; PSAs; marches; vigils trillions spent and legislation passed and repealed, finally, football players are joining the chorus which has overwhelmingly proven that these 100 years of social justice efforts have accomplished exactly zero. Welcome to nowhere.

    Why are we still here? If your premise is wrong; your argument is invalid, as well as ineffectual.

    The position that “societal institutions are inherently structured to discriminate”; therefore, we need more institutional funding, power and control is borderline insanity at this point.

    As is “cops are racists; therefore only cops should have guns.”

    But faux-liberals are typically incapable of learning. It threatens their place in the herd, and Rogers, as well as Lebron, stand to lose a lot should they attempt rational dissension from postmodernist orthodoxy.

    -The lowest African American unemployment in decades.
    -The lowest Latino unemployment in decades.
    -Last quarter GDP was 4.1%, highest in years.
    -Stock market at over 40% increase since his election.
    -NKorea is dismantling their ability to nuclearize.
    -He received more of the African American votes, more of the Latino vote than any Republican in the last 5 elections.
    -A tax break that touched 91% of Americans! (Still waiting on Obama’s)!!
    -He donates his salary, every year, for charity.
    -7 Million people on food stamps
    Listen, there are many more positive stats to cover what this President has accomplished, but you will believe in your own truth.

    The above are pure facts. Hate him all you wish.

  53. James held a fundraiser for Hillary. James donated to her campaign. James thought he was such a big man in Ohio that he would get Hillary a win on his name. Trump embarrassed him. James ran his mouth about Trump first. Screw him.

  54. The idea that anything that Trump says is wrong just because Trump said it and he is so rude and bombastic is very telling of the people who believe that. Critical, objective thinking is dead.

  55. The first presidential election was in ’76. Voted for President Gerald Ford. Drove my Dad nuts. I explained that I thought Jimmy Carter would be a disaster because he was hell-bent on alienating Congress with his cornball “outsider” schtick.

    I did not vote for POTUS for the same reason. Told my extreme right wing buddies that if POTUS would win by some unfortunate happenstance, our party would have its very own “Jimmy Carter”. Thing is, POTUS is even worse.

    You folks jumping up and down with your hair on fire over Aaron’s comments here seriously…need to re-evaluate what you’re all butt-hurt about. When your clergy says the same stuff on Sunday morning, you’re probably standing up more straight as you drop an additional $20 in the collection basket…and then taking $25 back in change when you think no one is looking.

  73. Don’t agree with how Trump has went about it. I do wish he would put a sock in it sometimes. But he’s right about the anthem issue. Do soccer players or WNBA players protest the anthem? This isn’t about social justice anymore. It is about players who feel Trump will win if they don’t protest the anthem. Which is silly.

  74. Setting the politics aside, Rodgers is an intelligent breath of fresh air when it comes to interviews – his answers are well thought out and void of all the cliche doublespeak. I don’t give a tip about his politics – he’s an interesting guy, which isn’t easy to say as a Viking fan.

  75. Not a Rodgers fan at all but I agree with him here. Don’t Trump supporters think his name calling is pathetically juvenile for an adult and especially so for the POTUS? That stuff usually stopped in HS. Here he is the POTUS calling people dumb or little Marco, Lying Ted. He embarrasses the USA.

  76. Trump has a lot of nerve calling into anyone’s patriotism given his own cowardly collection of bone spurs to say nothing of his calling the White House (an elegant, historic American symbol) a dump.

    Aaron Rodgers has once again proven to be as wise off the field as he is on it. I personally hope HE runs for President someday. Now that Trump has lowered the bar so unbelievably low… in terms of intelligence, grace, and wisdom….a man like Rodgers would be a godsend.
