NFL players across the country took a knee in protest after President Trump said Friday that any "son of a bitch" who refuses to stand for the national anthem should be fired.
At a rally in Alabama on Friday Trump
said that NFL owners should fire any "son of a bitch" who does not stand for the national anthem. On football fields across the country Sunday, many players protested the remarks by refusing to stand, while others placed hands on their kneeling teammates shoulders, or bowed their heads.
