This is my first comment on the NFL players, not standing, kneeling, etc. during the anthem.
Most people don't give Trump enough credit. he knew exactly what the response would be to his comments. What is everyone talking about now? Is it the issue they are protesting? No. It is Trump and his statements. Was this politically advantageous? Only time will tell, but, he has galvanized an entire major sporting enterprise, along with major sporting networks ESPN, and the NFL network, into talking about him. ESPN, refused to discipline a talking head who called him a "white supremest", so he attacked them where they live. The entire issue is lost, and he has so many people kneeling, which gives credence to his philosophy, that people are so ingrained in their own importance that they don't see the big picture.
How many of these 22-25 year old, "African-American" millionaires, have really experienced racism, in their life?
Guess what? no one is talking about pulling down Confederate statues now. JMHO
