During Monday’s White House press briefing, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders got grilled by reporters looking to attack the President for standing up against the NFL this weekend.
Trump publicly shamed a number of players and teams this weekend after they refused to properly honor the men and women who have so bravely fought for our country’s freedom. President Trump will not stand by and let these millionaires disrespect America’s flag – the number one symbol of our nation.
During the briefing, reporters suggested that the President overreacted and was actually WRONG to stand up for our nation!
One reporter asked Sarah, “Over the course of the last 72 hours, the President has tweeted more than a dozen times about sports, about kneeling, about Nascar on this topic. He tweeted zero times about Puerto Rico. So I guess the bottom-line question is, ‘What message is the President sending by emphasizing sports right now, and not a big crisis that’s effecting so many people?’”
Sanders furiously cuts him off before he can keep slandering our President and our country.
“He’s not emphasizing sports. You’re missing the entire purpose of the message. He’s emphasizing something that should be unifying. Celebrating and promoting patriotism in our country is something that should bring everybody together.”
BOOM! What a prefect response!
Another reporter slams Trump’s statement that NFL players who refuse to stand for the National Anthem should be fired from the NFL. Sanders’ reply SILENCES the room!
“This isn’t about the President being against anyone. But this is about the President and millions of Americans being for something. Being for honoring our flag, honoring our national anthem, and honoring the men and women who fought to defend it.”
Sarah Huckabee Sanders absolutely NAILED it! She couldn’t be MORE right! This is not about attacking the NFL, it is about honoring our brave servicemen and women!
These players who refuse to honor the men and women who fought for their freedom do not deserve to go unpunished!
