On Saturday Trump said: “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that &**@ off the field right now. Out! He’s fired!”

Well, throughout the league Sunday, while the national anthem was being performed, some people removed their caps, some placed their hands over their hearts, and some simply bowed their heads.

But it was very nice to see NFL players, coaches and even owners (in unity) give Trump the single-digit salute!

Oh please. I don't care what their political beliefs are but they should NOT DO IT on work hours. It is against work policy in my office even to talk about politics. Plus, they are acting like spoiled a***oles. They make MILLIONS OF DOLLARS per year and they can't even salute the country that made them so wealthy? REALLY?? My fiancé isn't fighting overseas for a bunch of ungrateful millionaires! Let them show their political views on THEIR OWN TIME outside of work hours! Nobody wants to see your garbage!
