Trump disrespects military, protesters

Trump disrespects military, protesters

President hypocrisy is stunning.

 

President Trump has been quite critical of the professional football players who have expressed their concern about police violence by kneeling during the national anthem.

He, and many others, see this as being disrespectful of current and former members of the U.S. Armed Forces.

President Trump’s hypocrisy is stunning.

Have we forgotten the disrespect he showed Sen. John McCain during the campaign or his criticism of a Gold Star father who spoke at the Democratic National Convention? Did we ignore his insensitivity to the widow of a soldier killed in Niger?

The NFL players have been clear that they are demonstrating about police violence toward minorities, and they harbor no ill will or disrespect to the U.S. Armed Forces.

President Trump has clearly demonstrated that he disrespects the sacrifice of our armed forces, the legitimate concerns of the NFL players, and the intelligence of every American.

President Trump has proven himself the disrespecter-in-chief.
