A former aide to President Barack Obama on Friday tore into President Trump over his continued attacks on NFL players who kneel in protest during the national anthem.
"Trump has done far more to disrespect our country and our flag than any football player, including these constant attacks on black athletes," former Obama adviser Ben Rhodes tweeted.
The tweet from Rhodes, a former deputy national security adviser, came after Trump slammed the NFL earlier in the day for not implementing penalties for players who protest during "The Star-Spangled Banner."
Can you believe that the disrespect for our Country, our Flag, our Anthem continues without penalty to the players," Trump tweeted Friday morning. "The Commissioner has lost control of the hemorrhaging league. Players are the boss!
Trump has repeatedly called for the NFL to implement a rule requiring that players stand during the anthem or to fire those who don't.
The NFL said last month it has no plans to implement such a ban. NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart said the commissioner planned to speak to the teams and owners about how to use our platform to both raise awareness and make progress on issues of social justice and equality in this country.
This rhodes fool should be exiled for his perfidy and general ignorance. What a worthless putz.
Just cause you say it, doesn’t make it true.
Oh wait, looks like their running LieSoft’s BlameWare2.0.
I think he must have meant to say Obama.
Oh up yours Ben!! All you OBuggery people are trauitors and anti-american scum. All that you liberals do is project.
How about impaled on a stake?
Ben Rhodes engineered the Obama/Soros campaign to put over the giving of $150 billion to US enemy Iran.
SJW can KMA
A REAL jerk. Even to his own side.
Rhodes is another socialist who has no use for the United States Constitution. Pay no attention to the little man other than to know where he works and for whom.
It scares people that President Trump supporters are more intelligent than football players for the NFL??? Undoubtedly!!!
>>>Trump has done ‘more to disrespect our country’ than any football player<<<
That is because YOUR country is not OUR country . . . YOUR country is an alternate reality.
Said Rhodes who lied about the Iran deal and who unmasked Americans in NSA spying data in the runup to the the 2016 election.
“Trump has done far more to disrespect our country and our flag than any football player.....”
HUH? Are you delusional?

“Ex-obama” ... That phrase itself honors America.
The Kenyanesian Usurpation was the greatest insult to the Constitution and the Republic that could be imagined.
Ben Rhodes supports the Black Ballers that are destroying the NFL
