President Trump has weighed in for a second time on the NFL’s decision to support Nike’s endorsement of Colin Kaepernick, tweeting on Wednesday: “Just like the NFL, whose ratings have gone WAY DOWN, Nike is getting absolutely killed with anger and boycotts. I wonder if they had any idea that it would be this way? As far as the NFL is concerned, I just find it hard to watch, and always will, until they stand for the FLAG!”

On Tuesday, Trump broke his silence on the Nike-Kaepernick controversy after the NFL released a statement in support of Kaepernick, telling The Daily Caller that Nike is sending a “terrible message” by featuring the has-been quarterback.

“I think it’s a terrible message that they’re sending and the purpose of them doing it, maybe there’s a reason for them doing it.”

“But I think as far as sending a message, I think it’s a terrible message and a message that shouldn’t be sent. There’s no reason for it.”

However, President Trump also acknowledged that Nike has the right to feature whoever they want in the ad campaign.

“As much as I disagree with the Colin Kaepernick endorsement, in another way — I mean, I wouldn’t have done it,” he said.

“In another way, it is what this country is all about, that you have certain freedoms to do things that other people think you shouldn’t do, but I personally am on a different side of it.”

    When it comes to athletes who are given a gift they use to enrich themselves and then become arrogant with it and throws it in the faces of those that helped make them rich I suggest the following story:

    The Lessons of a Bird – A Short Story
    BY ALLEN KLEIN

    Here is a story about a bird who found his lessons in the most unlikely of places:
    Once upon a time, there was a nonconforming sparrow who decided not to fly south for the winter. However, soon the weather turned so cold that he reluctantly started southward. In a short time, ice began to form on his wings and he fell to earth in a barnyard, almost frozen. A cow passed by and crapped on the little sparrow. The sparrow thought it was the end. But then the manure warmed him and defrosted his wings. Warm and happy, able to breathe, he started to sing. Just then a large cat came by and hearing the chirping, investigated the sounds. The cat cleared away the manure, found the chirping sparrow and promptly ate him.
    Now, it may seem that there are no lessons here, but there are. In fact, there are three:
    1. Everyone who shits on you is not necessarily your enemy.
    2. Everyone who gets you out of shit is not necessarily your friend.
    3. If you’re warm and happy in a pile of shit, keep your mouth shut.

    ALL you athletes need to remember, America is watching and America DOESN’T NEED TO BE WATCHING. Still your choice AND OURS TOO – SEE YA NEXT SEASON MAYBE CUZ YA AIN’T GETTING NONE OF MY MONEY THIS YEAR!
