Tom Brady Stands By The NFL Amid Pal Donald Trump’s Controversial Criticism Of The National Anthem Protests!

tom brady criticizes donald trump

Donald Trump doesn’t even have Tom Brady‘s support on this issue.

As you surely know, POTUS sparked a NFL wide protest on Sunday following his call to “fire and suspend” those players who’d kneel during the National Anthem over racial injustice. In response to Donald’s criticisms, many players linked arms and/or kneeled during the Star-Spangled Banner on game day.

This clearly rattled the Trumpster as he called for a boycott of the NFL AND voiced his disapproval of the protests over and over again. Thus, several key players in the football community have denounced Trump for his disparaging remarks. Even 45’s friend Tom was disappointed in Donnie’s shade.

At first, the Patriots quarterback only alluded to his stance as he took to Instagram on Sunday and posted:

Green Bay PackersAaron Rodgers shared a similar sentiment as he too shared on IG:

However, by Monday, Brady’s opinion was far clearer as he noted on the Kirk & Callahan radio show:

“I certainly disagree with what [Trump] said. I thought it was just divisive… I just want to support my teammates. I am never one to say, ‘Oh, that is wrong. That is right.’ I do believe in what I believe in. I believe in bringing people together and respect and love and trust. Those are the values that my parents instilled in me. That is how I try and live every day.”

Donald’s blood must be boiling right now. Other NFL players were more straight forward with their stances as they took to social media and shared:

Well said!! NFL commissioner Roger Goodell appears to be standing by the protesters as he called the president’s comments “divisive” and disrespectful.

Nonetheless, not all NFL stars are on board with the protests as Denver Broncos defensive end Derek Wolfe recently told ESPN that he found the whole thing “disrespectful to the ones who sacrificed their lives.”

Be sure to take a look at his full statement (below).
