GAME OVER: Trump Unloads on ‘Leaderless’ NFL After Weekend Protests

President Donald Trump unloaded on the National Football League on Monday, slamming the NFL for its “total disrespect” and lack of “leadership” following a weekend that saw two dozen players “taking a knee” during the performance of the national anthem.
The President vented his frustration with the beleaguered league on social media, blasting officials and owners who have been unable or unwilling to stop weeks of player protests during the ‘Star-Spangled Banner.’
“Two dozen NFL players continue to kneel during the National Anthem, showing total disrespect to our Flag & Country. No leadership in NFL!” posted the President.
Nearly two-months of player protests have taken a severe impact on the league, with furious fans changing the channel or staying home in protest to players who remain seated as the anthem plays throughout the stadium.
Last week, the President introduced an official petition to change the official rules, banning professional athletes from making political statements or demonstrations during pre-game ceremonies.
