Trump's Comments Spur More Knee-Taking---Lots More!

In the wake of President Trump calling for the firing of NFL players who protest during the national anthem, such protests increased by more than 2,000%. More than 130 players sat, knelt, or raised fists for the national anthem during Sunday’s day games; last week it was six players. Three teams—the Seahawks, Titans, and Steelers stayed in the locker room or tunnel for the anthem. An NFL executive says the teams will not be fined despite violating a league rule requiring they be on the sideline for the anthem. For his part, Colin Kaepernick, the player responsible for the whole kneeling trend, tweeted a reminder that his protests were never about Trump but about racial injustice in the US.
