President Trump was very upfront about the fact that he wasn’t pleased with all the anthem kneeling. No one who respects the country even remotely should be comfortable with it. Yeah, there are some bad things that happen in this country. But sitting down instead of respecting the people who died for the flag doesn’t fix any of that. It just divides us more. It’s a bad look. Period.
On Monday night, Alabama and Georgia met for the national championship game in college football. Guess who showed up to show the anthem kneelers a thing or two?
From Fox News:
President Trump brought his fight against national anthem-kneelers to the field of the NCAA championship football game in Atlanta on Monday night, standing and singing “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
Trump was announced to a varied combination of cheers and jeers as he entered the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in a dark suit and red tie. Waving and smiling to the crowd of thousands, Trump walked onto the field to hear the Zac Brown Band sing the anthem.
With his right hand on his heart, Trump smiled and occasionally sang along with the band.
Gotta love it.
Here’s some video.
From The Daily Caller:
The move was significant due to the president’s ongoing war with the NFL. Earlier this year, Trump picked a fight with NFL players who kneel for the national anthem. The battle caused mass anthem protests throughout the league. The backlash agains the NFL was severe, with plummeting ratings and attendance. Trump has regularly claimed victory on the issue.
The crowd Monday night went wild and Trump left the field with a smile.
How great are all these pictures?
You can tell the guy is having a ball.
Liberals must have been furious.
I’ve already seen several fake news stories out there talking about how stupid Trump is and how he doesn’t know the words to the national anthem. It’s really just pathetic. The guy can’t win with liberals.
Apparently, one Alabama player was caught on video shouting “F*** Trump”.
From Washington Examiner:
One of the University of Alabama’s players yelled an expletive directed at President Trump ahead of the College Football Playoff National Championship game against the University of Georgia on Monday.
“Fuck Trump,” one of the players can be heard saying in a video of the players before entering the field. Trump did not appear to be in the vicinity of the player.
Here’s the clip of that.

Very cool move for Donald Trump to show up at this game. It’s in the south so odds are the crowd would react well and they did. Obviously, some people booed but that’s to be expected. The country is pretty much split down the middle with that kind of thing.
It’s incredibly refreshing to have a president that goes out of his way to show his respect for our country. Remember when Michelle Obama was running around saying she wasn’t proud of America until they made her husband president? Doesn’t that seem like ages ago? It might as well be ancient history because there’s a new sheriff in town and his name is Donald J. Trump.
