President Trump is a smart and savvy operator. He stands up for what he believes no matter the cost, which is so rare in the swamp.
The NFL anthem controversy is reaching its boiling point so what does Trump do? He stuns liberals with another surprise move.
It is as unexpected as it is brilliant.
From the Hill:
“They’re not proud enough to stand for our national anthem, I don’t like that,” Trump said to reporters outside the White House on Friday, criticizing the protests as “talk, talk, talk.”
However, he said, he plans to ask kneeling athletes to recommend “friends of theirs or people that they know about” who they think should be pardoned.
“I am going to ask all of those people to recommend to me — because that’s what they’re protesting — people that they think were unfairly treated by the justice system,” Trump said.
NFL players began kneeling during the anthem in the 2016 season to protest racial inequality and police brutality.
“I’m going to take a look at those applications,” Trump said. “If my committee finds that they’re unfairly treated, then we will pardon them or at least let them out.”

The next guy who takes a knee without taking the offer from Trump is a total hypocrite who will be called out as such bu the entire USA.
