Trump Just appeared on Fox And Friends made a grave racist attack on NFL Players!
Despite several backlashes from celebrities and lawmakers, Trump continues to attack black NFL athletes, while millions of Americans are suffering from the after-effects of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. Now Trump’s behaviour is beyond any reasonable argument that he is more than a racist whistle. Anyone still unconvinced need only look at the comments Trump made today.
The president now gave a brief interview to Fox and Friends, where he once again wasted the country’s time and his own by babbling on the NFL and patriotism, spreading the lie that athletes taking a knee during the national anthem is an insult to the country. He completely ignores that fact that taking the knee was the protest against police brutality.
“I have so many friends that are owners. And they’re in a box. I mean, I’ve spoken to a couple of them, they say ‘we are in a position where we have to do something,’” Trump said to Fox and Friends.
“I think they’re afraid of their players, you want to know the truth. It’s disgraceful,” Trump added, in perhaps his most blatant example of racist code language on this issue to date.
Trump’s idea that billionaire team owners would be “afraid” of their players just doesn’t make any sense, however, it indulges to the fear of the black man that racists so often engage in. The inference is clear here: these men are dangerous. There is a long, disgusting history of hateful white men painting black people as something to be feared. It makes it easier for these bigots to rally other white people together to push a white supremacist agenda. The only disgraceful thing here is Trump’s behaviour.
