Watch: President Trump Uses Weekly Address for the NFL
President Trump released his weekly address to the American people. There's a lot of important things to discuss. Talking to the American people about what his executive order against Obamacare means. Discussing his de-sanctioning of Obama's Iran Deal. That whole Harvey Weinstein thing. Plenty of important topics to cover.
So of course, he chooses to talk about the NFL.
We are doing really well. Companies are moving back into the United States and far fewer will be moving out. Believe me. And it's already happened. American schoolchildren put their hands on their hearts as they recite the Pledge of Allegiance.
Before watching a football game, you want to see those players be proud of their country. Respect our country. Respect our flag. And respect our national anthem and we think they will. We certainly hope they will.
So this month, as we remember the patriots who fought to win our glorious Independence, let us renew our commitment to love our country, protect our citizens, and ensure that this will ALWAYS BE the land of the free and the home of the brave.
Let me know if you agree or disagree in the comment section, but isn't it time to let this go? The president made his point a few weeks ago. Advertisers listened. Owners listened. Hell, even the commissioner listened. But the president's obsession with this is getting dangerously close to what Rush Limbaugh was talking about.
Put it this way, the media overreacts to every little thing Trump says or tweets. Trump trolls them for that very reason, something we can all enjoy. Everyone tunes in expecting him to say something about the NFL.
What if instead, once he had his captivated audience, he swerved. What if he sat down with families who have struggled because of ObamaCare and shared there stories? You know, to get Obamacare repealed. Seems that's more important than what players do before a football game, no?
