Donald Trump VS The NFL — Everything You Need To Know!

What could the President of the United States of America possibly have to gain by fighting with the NFL?? Well, when you're talking about Donald Trump, there actually are a couple good reasons. (And by "good" we mean horrific.) Let's rewind. Related: Like John Oliver Did Last Night For Megyn Kelly — OUCH! On Friday night, Trump was holding [...] What could the President of the United States of America possibly have to gain by fighting with the NFL?? Well, when you're talking about Donald Trump, there actually are a couple good reasons. (And by "good" we mean horrific.) Let's rewind. Related: Like John Oliver Did Last Night For Megyn Kelly -- OUCH! On Friday night, Trump was holding a rally in Alabama -- yes, our sitting president who has been in office less than a year regularly holds campaign-style rallies to inflate his ego -- in which he made some inflammatory remarks about protesting football players. In short, he said NFL owners should fire the players who kneel during the National Anthem. And he said it in the crudest way: "Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out! He's fired. He's fired!'" Yep. Our president used an expletive in a public speech attacking private citizens who are peacefully protesting. Though he didn't mention Colin Kaepernick by name, he is at the vanguard of this controversy. So his mom responded to the "son of a bitch" comment with an AMAZING quip: Guess that makes me a proud bitch! — Teresa Kaepernick (@B4IleaveU) September 23, 2017 It should be noted in that same speech he also rattled off the opinion that penalties for hitting too hard, installed to protect players from concussions, are "ruining the game." Shortly after this, Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry was so offended by this (and presumably everything that came before) he decided not to attend the traditional visit by the NBA champs to the White House. In response, Trump officially, publicly disinvited him. CLICK HERE FOR MORE! Guy. Everyone knows you can't un-invite someone after they said they weren't coming! It turns you from a loser into an ANGRY loser. Even middle school student body presidents wouldn't make that mistake. Damn. Or as LeBron James put it: U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going! So therefore ain't no invite. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up! — LeBron James (@KingJames) September 23, 2017 Ha! But Trump had moved on from a feud with a specific player. He decided he wanted to take on the entire NFL. On Saturday, Drumpf doubled down: If a player wants the privilege of making millions of dollars in the NFL,or other leagues, he or she should not be allowed to disrespect.... — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 23, 2017 ...our Great American Flag (or Country) and should stand for the National Anthem. If not, YOU'RE FIRED. Find something else to do! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 23, 2017 If you haven't seen it, longtime sports journalist Bob Costas gave an epic response to this argument, pointing out that peaceful protest and dissent are some of the most patriotic things you can do in a free country. CLICK HERE FOR MORE After NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Trump's comments showed an "unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players," Trump responded: Roger Goodell of NFL just put out a statement trying to justify the total disrespect certain players show to our country.Tell them to stand! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 23, 2017 On Sunday, he actually encouraged his followers to boycott watching the games: If NFL fans refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our Flag & Country, you will see change take place fast. Fire or suspend! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 24, 2017 This is clearly on very shaky ground ethically -- the POTUS directing people to boycott a private American business -- and he's already had a complaint filed against him with the Office of Government Ethics. Oh, and if you're like us and know to look for the tweet from Barack Obama's presidency that proves Trump is being a total hypocrite about this, look no further: President should not be telling the Washington Redskins to change their name-our country has far bigger problems! FOCUS on them,not nonsense — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 8, 2013 Every time. So on Sunday when it came time for football players to stand for the National Anthem, all eyes were on their reactions, which... varied. At latest count more than 200 players league-wide didn't stand for the anthem. Trump's friend Tom Brady doesn't have his back. The Pittsburg Steelers didn't show up on the field at all! CLICK HERE FOR MORE Trump was so unhappy about all this he may even have snuck a lewd gesture onto live TV. You can decide that one for yourself. Trump was undeterred. Obviously. But on Monday morning, he did tweet a clarification, as once again he didn't like being called out as a racist: The issue of kneeling has nothing to do with race. It is about respect for our Country, Flag and National Anthem. NFL must respect this! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 25, 2017 Except it DOES have to do with race. You can't say the intent of these players has nothing to do with race when they're flat-out saying it's about race. It's about injustice along racial lines, specifically when it comes to police brutality. Police keep getting away with killing unarmed black citizens. But the surge in players kneeling this Sunday was in unity AGAINST Trump's awful comments attacking players and their freedom of speech. We know because THAT'S WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT IT! And they aren't alone. Many celebrities have come out in support of the protesting. CLICK HERE FOR MORE So with all of this support on the other side, for the NFL, for freedom of speech, for African Americans looking for justice, why would Trump take the position he's taking? Two reasons: 1. His Base We already know by Trump's inability to condemn the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, equating the white supremacists with those counter-protesting, that Trump is unwilling to go against his base. Let's be honest here. Trump ran on a platform of hate. He painted Mexicans as criminals as he threw his hat in the ring. He regularly fans the flames of Islamophobia. His wall, aside from being completely idiotic, is as xenophobic a policy as we've ever heard. The first time he even dipped his toe into the political world was to declare Obama wasn't really an American. So his core supporters, the ones he's courted from the beginning, are racists. And he can't lose them. They're all he has left. Besides the cowardly Republican party that let him hijack them we mean. 2. Ego Trump KNOWS so much of this is about him. He's the one who is embarrassing and demeaning our country, he's the one making us all look bad, he's the one emboldening Nazis. It's 2017, and we have a Nazi problem! Let that soak in. He's making every problem with our country worse. So as the leader of the United States, he takes it as a personal slight when players kneel during its anthem, when they don't stand for the flag. And we know how he reacts to criticism. And he's petty enough to start a war with an organization like the NFL over it. So there you go. [Image via Instagram.].....»»

The leader of the popular five-member Korean pop troupe SHINee – better known as Jonghyun – sadly passed away at the age of 27 after being taken to the hospital in an unconscious state on Monday (December 18) in Seoul, South Korea. Management group SM Entertainment has released a statement, and now Kim‘s farewell note has reportedly been uploaded to social media. Police report that Kim’s older sister got a text message on Monday suggesting that the star was going to kill himself, according to Variety. On Tuesday, a longer suicide note was posted on the Instagram account belonging to Nine, a musician with modern rock band Dear Cloud. According to Nine’s management, the note was given to her two weeks prior to Kim’s death. “I am broken from inside,” the note reads. “The depression that had been slowly eating me up finally devoured me and I couldn’t defeat it.” He added that his doctor suggested that Kim’s personality was the reason he couldn’t get rid of the depression. “Maybe I wasn’t supposed to come up against the world; maybe I wasn’t supposed to be known to the world; I’ve learned that’s what (makes my life) difficult,” Kim wrote. How come I chose that.” Our thoughts continue to be with Kim‘s loved ones during this difficult time......»»

American Airlines has issued an apology to two pro basketball players who were kicked off a plane after a flight attendant accused them of stealing blankets. An airline spokesperson confirmed that Marquis Teague and Trahson Burrell of the Memphis Hustle boarded the South Dakota-bound flight at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport on Sunday. Two first-class passengers handed the NBA G league players their blankets as they headed to their seats in coach. But the warm gesture was torn apart by a flight attendant who accused the athletes of stealing the blankets before forcing them off the plane. Related: Glitch Leaves THOUSANDS Of Holiday Flights Without Pilots! The rep said an airline manager apologized to the players for the turbulence, adding that Burrell and Teague later flew first class to their destination in Sioux Falls, SD. The flight was operated by Envoy Air, however this incident comes weeks on the heels of AA announcing that it will implement implicit-bias training for its employees. The decision, announced by Chief executive Doug Parker last month, was in response to the NAACP issuing a travel advisory for AA back in October. The association reported uncovering "a pattern of disturbing incidents reported by African-American passengers," and noted the incidents suggest a "corporate culture of racial insensitivity and a possible racial bias." We guess that first class training didn't kick in just yet... At least the players seem to be taking the incident in jest. On Thursday, Hustle coach Glynn Cyprien tweeted out a photo of the two flying coach once again -- this time, with a blanket in hand: Some airlines DO have blankets in Coach! Hahahahaha #Love my guys! The jokes are endless! 🙈👍🏾👀😂🤷🏾‍♂️ pic.twitter.com/M64YbgwHAk — Glynn Cyprien (@CoachCyprien) December 28, 2017 Ha! Stay warm up there! [Image via Twitter.].....»»

Last week, UCLA basketball players LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley, and Jalen Hill were released from China where they were facing years in prison for shoplifting. Despite the fact experts say the young trio would likely have been released anyway, POTUS is demanding all the credit because he took the time to bring it up when meeting with President Xi Jinping. Video: 16 Women Accused Trump Of Sexual Harassment! Others aren't so sure Trump should get his pat on the back. When asked about the role POTUS played in the release, LiAngelo's father LaVar Ball told ESPN over the weekend: "What was he over there for? Don't tell me nothing. Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out." That's when Trump raged out on Twitter like a whiny child, tweeting: Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal. I should have left them in jail! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 19, 2017 Shoplifting is a very big deal in China, as it should be (5-10 years in jail), but not to father LaVar. Should have gotten his son out during my next trip to China instead. China told them why they were released. Very ungrateful! — Donald J.

As you surely know, POTUS sparked a NFL wide protest on Sunday following his call to "fire and suspend" those players who'd kneel during the National Anthem over racial injustice. In response to Donald's criticisms, many players linked arms and/or kneeled during the Star-Spangled Banner on game day. Related: Pharrell Takes Two Knees During Charlottesville Charity Concert This clearly rattled the Trumpster as he called for a boycott of the NFL AND voiced his disapproval of the protests over and over again. Thus, several key players in the football community have denounced Trump for his disparaging remarks. Even 45's friend Tom was disappointed in Donnie's shade. At first, the Patriots quarterback only alluded to his stance as he took to Instagram on Sunday and posted: Strength. Passion. Love. Brotherhood. Team. Unity. Commitment. Dedication. Determination. Respect. Loyalty. Work. #nflplayerA post shared by Tom Brady (@tombrady) on Sep 24, 2017 at 6:14am PDT Green Bay Packers' Aaron Rodgers shared a similar sentiment as he too shared on IG: #unity #brotherhood #family #dedication #love #A post shared by Aaron Rodgers (@aaronrodgers12) on Sep 24, 2017 at 6:34am PDT However, by Monday, Brady's opinion was far clearer as he noted on the Kirk & Callahan radio show: "I certainly disagree with what [Trump] said. I thought it was just divisive... I just want to support my teammates. I am never one to say, 'Oh, that is wrong. That is right.' I do believe in what I believe in. I believe in bringing people together and respect and love and trust. Those are the values that my parents instilled in me. That is how I try and live every day." Donald's blood must be boiling right now. Other NFL players were more straight forward with their stances as they took to social media and shared: The behavior of the President is unacceptable and needs to be addressed.

According to a court filing obtained by ABC News, the athlete's agent has reached out to all 32 teams in the league to note his availability, but apparently has been avoided like the plague! Video: Steph Curry Thinks Kap Should've Been On SI's 'Sports United' Cover! The 29-year-old, who hired attorney Mark Geragos instead of going through the NFL Players Association, believes his unemployment stems from his National Anthem protest last season, which led to Kaepernick severing his contract with the 49ers in March. While the free-agent QB isn't in the league this season, his presence has taken over -- players all across the NFL have been kneeling before games, sparking criticism from fans and controversy maven President Trump. Despite the uprising he caused, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell denied in June that Kaepernick had been blackballed by owners. Instead, the commissioner postulated that Kap wasn't picked up by a team because there are more talented players out there! He shaded to ESPN: "I believe that if a football team feels that Colin Kaepernick, or any other player, is going to improve that team, they're going to do it." Ouch. Take a seat, Kap. As for the persisting protest, Goodell wrote a memo to all the teams on October 10, insisting that "everyone should stand for the National Anthem," adding: "We need to move past this controversy, and we want to do that together with our players." Right. Every player except for the one who started it. [Image via Brian To/WENN.].....»»
