Ellen DeGeneres was one of the celebrities who stood up to defend the peaceful protest of NFL player, and she did it in style.
Ellen tweeted “As a football fan, I am proud of the NFL players today. Nothing is more American than the right to peacefully protest.”

Trump acts like a child when he demands that the team owners “do something” stating that the protests are “very disrespectful.” Many people are torn because this sport is an American Favourite. Several people have pointed out the fact that we have a white, conservative President trashing a sport that is mostly consists of African Americans. Trump says that race has nothing to do with his comments.
Nothing is more Un-American than kneeling during the National Anthem. Disrespectful to all the men and women that have served & continue to.

They are paid to play a game as you are to entertain. Find a different way to protest than to disgrace our military and country.
