Trump's flag fight is different this time — Analysis

Let’s not forget #TakeAKnee is about police brutality and race in America entertainment colin kaepernick donald trump

The reaction from the establishment media and sports figures was swift, with more participating in the national anthem protests after Trump's comments.

The Chief of Staff declined to comment to CNN about President Trump keeping this fight going.

That prompted players and owners from nearly every NFL team to unite in protest Sunday.

If you win your dishonoring of America and degrade it to the point of mass disrespect and violence, what will you do when anarchy rages through the streets of America?

After World War II, the commissioner of the NFL at the time, Elmer Layden, made a specific plea to keep the anthem as a game-day tradition. No doubt. But that does not change the fact that he is right.

What do I mean by that? "He just hasn't shown it".

White House chief of staff John Kelly, however, was not pleased with the resulting firestorm over the weekend, according to two administration officials.

Trump's event in Alabama was to support Republican Sen.

But those same instincts may be tripping him up as president.

Yesterday, though, that sports-related talk focused on what was happening on the field before kick-off. "They're not S.O.B.'s. They're smart thoughtful guys".

"The booing at the NFL football game last night, when the entire Dallas team dropped to its knees, was loudest I have ever heard". "They can do whatever they want", he said. "It's hard. I had to think long and hard about it, because there's a lot that can come with that".

The White House on Monday sought to soften the president's controversial comments.

"This kind of thing is why he's president", Rich Lowry wrote Saturday for National Review.

One would think that with all the urgent matters on Donald Trump's presidential plate, he would have precious little time for throwing racist red meat to his base.

"I salute the NFL, the coaches, the players, the owners, the fans - anyone who had an association with the NFL yesterday", James said at a pre-season media day.

"The recovery process will be a very, very difficult one", Trump said. As president he proposed a constitutional amendment to outlaw desecration of the flag. He put one up on a California course, refusing to pay the required permitting fee, and another in Mar-a-Lago, in clear violation of local rules. Overall, they reported, "these displays of paid patriotism [were] included within the $6.8 million that the Department of Defense (DOD) [had] spent on sports marketing contracts since fiscal year 2012".

"The playing of the national anthem should be as much a part of every game as the kickoff", he said. And the second thing, my wife's Puerto Rican and her family's in Puerto Rico.

In America, the game doesn't start until the national anthem plays. A debate over tax reform that could deeply affect the American economy and Americans' personal finances. Teachers, truck drivers, clerks, doctors, nurses, construction workers, lumber jacks, farmers, waitresses and other workers produce goods and services that make our society work.

Critics accuse Trump of creating a diversion.

The Green Bay Packers were no exception.

Without it, you, Colin Kaepernick and Madonna, et al, would not be millionaires nor would you be able to disrespect our nation's flag and our country. Since then, he has tweeted or retweeted on the subject more than 20 times.

The crusade never caught on, and quickly faded from public attention.

And then NASCAR's most popular driver, Dale Earnhardt, Jr.
