Way to go, CNN. You really “got” President Trump this time.
It is true that, four years ago, Mr. Trump tweeted this about the NFL…
President should not be telling the Washington Redskins to change their name-our country has far bigger problems! FOCUS on them,not nonsense
…and just days ago he tweeted this….
Sports fans should never condone players that do not stand proud for their National Anthem or their Country. NFL should change policy!
…which has prompted CNN to say, via Doug Criss’s article, that:
One of the posts took aim at the NFL, demanding the league change its policy…the irony of President Trump’s tweet is not lost when you consider a tweet from businessman Trump four years ago. At the time, he was blasting then-President Obama who said he’d change the name of the Washington Redskins if he were the team’s owner because the name is offensive to some Native Americans.
So let’s see:
-Four years ago Donald Trump tweets that it isn’t President Obama’s business to tell the Washington Redskins to change the team’s name (which, incidentally, the courts agreed with Trump on – and most native americans in the polls I read couldn’t have cared less about).
-And now, when he says the country’s national anthem should be respected, that’s an equivalent point, thus a hypocrisy.
Telling a team what name they should use = expecting the national anthem to be respected??????????
Have the people at CNN finally lost their minds altogether?
I guess that’s what irrational hatred does to you.
