Lions Twitter Think’s Dean Blandino’s Explanation of Controversial Call Is Bullsh*t (TWEETS)
Donald Trump Says Booing Fans are America’s REAL Heroes (TWEET)
Amid the rampant controversy yesterday surrounding NFL players’ treatment of the flag and national anthem, Donald Trump took several opportunities to clarify his remarks.
On one such occasion early Monday morning, he went to Twitter to let the world know that the fans who were brave enough to boo the kneeling players are worthy of being singled out and praised.
Many people booed the players who kneeled yesterday (which was a small percentage of total). These are fans who demand respect for our Flag!

Unsurprisingly, people responded in a critical fashion.
THEY BOOED DURING THE NATIONAL ANTHEM.
Yes, real patriots.

It’s unlikely there’s ever going to be a middle ground on this issue, but that hasn’t stopped people from reaching out on both sides in what’s turned into a surprisingly and remarkably divisive issue.
Next week likely won’t be any better, but it’s certain that parties on both sides will take measures to frame the issue their way, likely courting more controversy in the process.
