The above mentions translate well into everything "social" and the fallacy that we, as a society, subscribe to a political agenda as if any of them are not built on deception and/or against the best interests of constituents. This didn't start with "Trump's America" nor will it end there. People need to wake the fuck up and hopefully the death of this kneeling shit provides a pretty good proof.

Yes, I said death - this was all so popular and important not quite two months ago and now it has completely taken a media backseat to gropey white guys in power. GQ Writers and editors are not the only ones being pawns...

Almost made it! Apparently President Trump is still upset about it.

All a professional sportsball athlete has to do is state that they will stand quietly with their hand on their heart in protest and 50% of the American populace will loose their minds...
...because standing in protest is unthinkable
...so is kneeling
...or sitting
...or staying in the locker room
...or joining arms
...or refusing to joining arms
...or because they are blindly paying homage to an oppressive regime
...or not

I am outraged at this outrage !!!

Most TV news these days is more entertainment than information. Infotainment - it's what America wants!
If it isn't one channel its the other. The alphabet media (ABC CBS NBS FOX CNN MSNBC TBS LMNOP ETC) will print-post-reprint-repost-report anything and everything if it will draw enough controversy to increase the ratings share.
Who cares about accuracy?
Why do we need fact-checking when we have Snopes?

All of these hacks and hackettes should be taken out to sea and thrown overboard with a cinder block tied to their foot.
Way to go FOX - good job

Now - would everyone please stand...
...or kneel
...or sit
...for the playing of the national anthem

If the news and President were to drop this matter, America's attention span would guarantee that... squirrel!
