On kneeling, Packers rise in the face of Trump, others going low

Printer-friendly version

I understand that Donald Trump's complaints about (mostly black) NFL players kneeling during the national anthem to protest injustice is likely a misdirection play. I mean, if your last, best chance to destroy health care is going down the tubes and the Russia investigation is getting closer to your doorstep, you might try to change the subject too. But I was a sports fan well before I was into economics or politics, and I feel the intersection of these two topics is something I have to talk about.
