President Donald Trump gave an impromptu press briefing while boarding Air Force One on Sunday evening to address his criticism of NFL players who took a knee during the national anthem.

He insisted that that his comments about the league have ‘nothing’ to do with race, telling reporters: ‘I never said anything about race.

‘This has nothing to do with race or anything else. This has to do with respect for our country and respect for our flag.’

And to reaffirm his pro-military stance, upon landing in Washington he met with Marine One pilot Major James Thompson and his family. Major Thompson recently completed his last flight in service and was introduced by Trump to reporters at the White House.

Driving his criticisms home for the evening, he then tweeted: ‘Sports fans should never condone players that do not stand proud for their National Anthem or their Country.

‘NFL should change policy!’

It’s unclear what policy Trump was referring to.

    I personally have not watched any football since 2004. Candidly, I could give a squat less about what they do…any of them and hope that I live long enough to see these overpaid pukes standing in a bread line with the rest of America when the ship hits the sand. No entitled SOB has the right to piss on American soldiers for giving them the freedoms that we once had. Note that I said ‘once’. The USA Patriot act and the NDAA has removed any and all freedom this country once had.
