Donald Trump has mostly made a mockery of his ability to award civilian honors. He gave Rush Limbaugh the Medal of Freedom at 2020’s State of the Union. Football Lou Holtz was given the same honor this summer as a reward for questioning Joe Biden‘s Catholicism during the Republican National Convention.
U.S. investigators are probing whether a man accused of threatening to kill journalists at the Boston Globe after calling them "the enemy of the people" made similar threats to the New York Times and National Football League, a prosecutor said on Monday.
Donald Trump flipped out on the NFL on Monday morning. It has to be driving him crazy that no matter how hard he tries to ruin the NFL, Trump's ratings are down three times more than the league's TV numbers.
Donald Trump's handling of the aftermath of the Niger tragedy, which claimed the lives of four American servicemen, has caused considerable outrage and raised troubling questions. But what it didn't do, was reveal anything about Trump that we didn't already know. Contrarily, it only reinforced perceptions that were previously witnessed, but somehow ignored by his voters. For twelve days Donald Trump publicly ignored the deaths of four men who he claims to hold so dearly. Twelve days of silence proved him yet again, to be a malignant political fraud.
Once again, the self-centered President of the United States cannot help but make every domestic and international incident about him and how wonderful and/or victimized he is.
There's something very wrong with Ryan weighing in on this and using his power in government to try to silence free speech. Qualifying that with acknowledging their right doesn't mitigate from the chilling of free speech of such a powerful person in government shaming the players' criticism of government.
The entire Dallas Cowboys team – as well as owner Jerry Jones – knelt in solidarity on Monday, a clear rebuke of Trump's recent rhetoric.
The Congressman said Trump's weekend rant about NFL and NBA players is just a continuation of his post-Charlottesville racist rhetoric.
Behind the images of NFL players kneeling, raising fists, locked arm in arm or skipping the national anthem entirely is a message that's being drowned out by noise surrounding the method of protest. From the king of ignorance, Donald Trump, down to everyday Americans, many are egregiously guilty of not seeing the forest through the trees.
Let me say it as clearly as I can: The anger being expressed by many (white) people over NFL players kneeling during the national anthem is transparently phony.
Trump made the reason for his fight with the NFL clear on Sunday. The President is attempting to hide behind the flag to dodge the growing darkness of the Russia scandal.
Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) schooled Republicans who didn't serve on NFL players' rights to protest as they used the flag in their attempts to defend President Trump attacking NFL players who kneel, saying they should be fired.
In a stinging tweet, former Democratic Rep. Donna Edwards she hopes "every NFL player" will take the opportunity to stand up to "the white supremacist who squats in our White House."
Instead of backing down or being intimidated by the irresponsible man in the White House, NFL players and the league's commissioner have joined together in condemning the president.
The human comment section living in the White House is proving not just that his mental train is fully off the rails, but that he doesn't really care about governing the country or solving problems.
Bill O’Reilly has a problem with Denver Broncos football player Brandon Marshall, who before the Thursday night season opener against the North Carolina Panthers, chose to take a knee for the national anthem. Marshall joins Colin Kaepernick, Jeremy Lane and Eric Reid in refusing to stand as a protest against social injustice.
For decent Americans it is beyond comprehension that it is acceptable for white supremacists, whether they are St. Louis-area cops or owners of a sports bar, to demand that African Americans suffer punishment for exercising their constitutional rights.
On Tuesday, Republican candidate for Massachusetts Governor, Charlie Baker, called a Boston-area female reporter 'sweetheart' and patted her on her shoulder after she asked him a question.
Everyone was willing to protect Ray Rice because he is such a valuable football player.
Right wing extremists have warned NFL teams that they have "a coalition of extremist Christian leaders from across the nation" ready to unleash Hell on the Rams to teach the entire NFL a Christ-like lesson.
