During a rally in Huntsville, Alabama, president Donald Trump called for NFL owners to fire any players who exercise their free speech rights by peacefully kneeling during the national Anthem.
Trump appeared to refer to to former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in his call for censorship:
Wouldn’t you love to see one of our NFL owners, when somebody disrespects the flag, say, “Get that son of a b*tch off the field, right now. Out. He’s fired! He’s fired!”
