It is clear that President Donald Trump claimed a major victory this Tuesday afternoon in his fight against NFL protesters, after spending weeks condemning their protesting actions and their series of disrespect towards the national anthem and Flag. And now, with the goal of shining some media coverage on herself, failed Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has weighed in with her thoughts on the matter.
The situation with the league escalated even further after this Tuesday afternoon NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell sent a letter to all team owners echoing Trump by stating, “Like many of our fans, we believe everyone should stand for the National Anthem,” before calling a meeting to discuss the anthem policy with the owners The move is a clear victory for the commander-in-chief on the whole situation.
Clinton on the other hand, as expected, took a stand for the anthem protesters, explaining how they were “not protesting the anthem or the flag,” but saying “they’re protesting racism and injustice and they have every right to do so.”
Her remarks, despite being met with an applause from the leftist, were also wrong unfortunately for her, as CNN legal analyst Paul Callan in a recent article titled “There is no constitutional right to take a knee while you’re at work,” explained: The fact is, these athletes do not have the “right” to protest at football games unless their employers consent to the conduct,” adding how their private employers had every right to suspend the players who protested during the playing of the national anthem.
He then compared the situation urging everyone to imagine what would happen if some of the TV anchors or commentators decided to take a knee during their shows.
