(VIDEO) Trump’s vile rant about NFL protesters further ignites boycott of NFL

by Angela Davis|@ladyadavis |@jerseygirlsport "Some of them are fine people." That's what Donald Trump called white nationalists, the Alt-Right and KKK members who launched a violent protest in Charlottesville, VA. "Son of a bitch." That's what he calls Colin Kaepernick and players like him who protest police brutality by taking a knee or raising a fist during the national anthem. I'll just let that sit with you for a minute. OK. Now, there's no surprise here. Trump is who he's always been. A bigot with Hitler-like tendencies who pushes for nationalism instead the freedom and democracy this country is supposed to stand for. So what does this mean for NFL players and those boycotting this current NFL season? Nothing, really. His words, typically ignorant and childlike, don't further intelligent discourse on the subject of racism in this country, it underscores the reason players are protesting. He did what he's done from the beginning: divide people with hate-filled rhetoric. Meanwhile, the good citizens of this country are standing together for the good of this nation by kneeling, raising a fist or just not watching any NFL. With NFL ratings already slipping, this did nothing to help them. The NFL will have to respond. What do you think?
