After realizing that football fans cared more about their country than watching sports, Roger Goodell finally caved on the issue of players “taking a knee” during our national anthem.
Ever since this disgusting trend began last year, our President has been fighting his heart out on this matter. President Trump has consistently been standing up for our military even when players, coaches and even Roger Goodell unfairly attacked him.
It’s clear now that President Trump won this fight.
Yesterday, Goodell sent a statement out to all 32 teams telling them that they need to stand during our national anthem.
“Like many of our fans,” Goodell wrote, “we believe that everyone should stand for the national anthem. It is an important moment in our game. We want to honor our flag and our country, and our fans expect that of us.”
This morning, President Trump took to Twitter to tell Goodell that it’s about damn time!
“IT IS ABOUT TIME THAT ROGER GOODELL OF THE NFL IS FINALLY DEMANDING THAT ALL PLAYERS STAND FOR OUR GREAT NATIONAL ANTHEM-RESPECT OUR COUNTRY”

Fools like Roger Goodell should know by now that our President is not going to let you get away with disrespecting our military. President Trump took a lot of heat for his stance on this issue, but he never gave up the fight!
Maybe Roger Goodell will think twice next time before taking on our Commander in Chief!
