Asked about the ongoing controversy in the NFL concerning players who kneel for the national anthem, New York Giants co-owner Steve Tisch said Tuesday that the blame lies squarely at the feet of President Donald Trump. In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter at the premiere of “The Equalizer 2,” a movie which Tisch helped produce, the Giants owner said that Trump should focus on other issues going into the 2018-19 NFL season.
“Hopefully he’ll have much more going on that he’s going have to deal with and should deal with and must deal with than worrying about what NFL players do,” Tisch said. “He has no understanding of why they take a knee or why they’re protesting. When the new season starts, I hope his priorities are not criticizing the NFL and telling owners what to do and what not to do.”
Oh, we’re sure that Trump will have a variety of priorities when the NFL takes the field again this fall. But if the players again choose to prolong this senseless protest that offends patriots, military veterans, and proud Americans of all stripes, then we’re sure he’ll find time to throw some more shade at these millionaire thugs. There’s ALWAYS time to stand up for what’s right, and what the NFL’s Criminal Crew has been doing for the last couple of years is absolutely, to-the-bone wrong.
But then again, maybe Trump has had enough of this fight and will choose to move on, even if the players don’t. Apparently, Tisch thinks that will be the end of it. Apparently, Tisch is laboring under the misapprehension that NFL fans are only pissed off about this debacle because the president told them to be. Well, he’s got another think coming. The truth will be revealed to him and the rest of the NFL owners in the form of lower gate receipts, shrinking television ratings, and the continued tarnishing of a once-respected brand.
As to whether or not Trump “understands” the players and their imagined grievances: Who really gives a damn? As far as we can tell, this is just an extension of the Black Lives Matter nonsense that burned Ferguson nearly to the ground and set off city-destroying riots in Baltimore, among other unfortunate events. In neither of those cases were the police guilty of what the idiot rioters thought they were guilty of. And study after study has proven that blacks are NOT killed by police at any higher percentage than whites.
The whole thing was a liberal scam from the beginning, and we should shun from public anyone still perpetuating the lie.
