New Orleans Saints defensive end Cam Jordan Friday responded to the President's latest complaints on Twitter on NFL players kneeling during the National Anthem during preseason games.
Only way to say it. What a Goober. He is who I thought he was. Guy is 70+ yr old acting out in what was once the highest respected political position, as a overly insecure prepubescent child...— cameron jordan (@camjordan94) August 10, 2018
He won’t govern himself, give him a mentor? Right, members of his cabinet left on their own accord or were dismissed accordingly... But what do I know I’m just a guy who should stick to football 🚶♂️— cameron jordan (@camjordan94) August 10, 2018
Trump claimed that the players could not define what they were protesting against and that they should "...Be happy, be cool!"
The Associated Press reports players have been protesting police killings of black men, social injustice and racism.
The NFL players are at it again - taking a knee when they should be standing proudly for the National Anthem. Numerous players, from different teams, wanted to show their “outrage” at something that most of them are unable to define. They make a fortune doing what they love......— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 10, 2018
.....Be happy, be cool! A football game, that fans are paying soooo much money to watch and enjoy, is no place to protest. Most of that money goes to the players anyway. Find another way to protest. Stand proudly for your National Anthem or be Suspended Without Pay!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 10, 2018
The AP adds Trump has told associates he believes the anthem issue is a winning one that riles up his base.
