NFL Week One: Two Miami Dolphins Players Are First To Kneel For Anthem This Season As Donald Trump Continues To Whine

Two Miami Dolphins players are the first two men to kneel for the National Anthem this year, as they played in one of the early football games that began this morning on the very first day of the NFL season.

Surely, Donald Trump can’t be too happy about this.

The two players — wide receivers Kenny Stills (10) and Albert Wilson (15) publicly took a knee as you can see (below) ahead of the team’s home game against the Tennessee Titans; reportedly, a third player stood for the anthem with a raised fist, as well:

The NFL has been trying to get ahead of this all summer, encouraging teams to remain in the locker room for the anthem so as to avoid this controversy; the league clearly wants no part of having to deal with this.

Good job to Stills and Wilson for opting to exercise their rights as American citizens and non-violently protest injustice in any way they so choose!!!

…and yet, Trump may force the league’s hand eventually to do something more, if only because he just. Can’t. Stop. Tweeting. About. This.

Here’s what Trump tweeted about the NFL this morning (below):

And that follows up this tweet, too, from a few days ago (below):

Trump’s point of view here is distinctly unpopular, of course, but that’s never stopped him before.

Regardless, now that the NFL has returned, expect to see Trump whining a LOT about things he doesn’t understand over the next seventeen weeks.

It’s going to be a long fall…
