Giants & Dolphins Owners Condemn Donald Trump For ‘Inappropriate, Offensive’ Comments
On Friday, Donald Trump set social media on fire when he condemned the actions of NFL players for kneeling during the playing of the National Anthem, calling it disrespectful to the American Flag.
He also stated that the owners of those teams should fire those ‘sons of bitches’ and fans should walk out of the stadium if they see them kneel.
No one expected any owners to actually speak out about Trump’s comments, but they did. New York Giants co-owners John Mara and Steve Tisch released a statement Saturday condemning President Donald Trump for what he said during that rally Friday in Huntsville, Alabama.
