CNN host, Chris Cuomo, says he has a ‘tip’ for President Trump. Cuomo’s upset sprung from Trump’s continued irritation with the NFL players who choose to kneel during the American Anthem. Calling these men ‘the most unifying aspects of our culture”.
Statment alone shows how out of touch Cuomo really is. Maybe it’s because he is submerged in the liberal media world but as far as I can tell, the kneeling players have been far from ‘unifying’. Maybe, Cuomo missed the die-hard fans who burned their expensive sports merchandise? Maybe he missed how the NFL has struggled to keep the stands full by restricting players from kneeling on the field?
No matter what Cuomo’s deal is, like a true Dem he made the issue about race and not about the flag, respect for the men and women who serve, and our Nation. Take a look:
“After more than a year of Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players sitting and kneeling during the national anthem, the controversy over their protests has reached a tipping point.
More players than ever before knelt or sat during the anthem on Sunday, after Trump argued that those who did so should be suspended or fired.
On Friday, Trump said: “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a b—- off the field right now, out — he’s fired!'”
Some NFL fans who agree with Trump showed their support of the president — and their anger at players — by burning their teams’ merchandise.
Robert Smith posted a video of himself on Sunday burning more than $1,000 worth of Pittsburgh Steelers merchandise, the Daily Mail reported. Earlier that day, the Steelers had not participated in the anthem, with the exception of offensive tackle Alejandro Villanueva, who served three tours of duty as an Army Ranger in Afghanistan before beginning his NFL career.”
